Adifo

Nutrition software supplier Adifo has launched a cloud-based
collaborative platform as an extension to BESTMIX®, their profit-driven
feed formulation and recipe management system. The extension platform is
bound to revolutionize the information interchange between nutrition
experts and the outside world to the benefit of all parties involved, including
feed advisors, external partners and customers.
The Formulation as a Service solution – securely implemented in the cloud
– gives users online access to part of a nutrition company’s BESTMIX®
database. Users can retrieve minute-precise market data, rely on up-to-date
equations and use state-of-the-art formulation functionality at any time.
They can also record project or customer-specific data such as purchase
costs and specifications.

Adifo has pioneered a new way of working which will dramatically
improve the collaborative interaction between all parties in the nutrition
company’s value chain.

Account managers and independent consultants will simulate
adaptations to recipes to meet specific customer demands and
evaluate immediately the cost impact of their adaptations.
Internal departments such as marketing, sales and quality
assurance will produce their own data and reports without compromising core data.

External interested parties will be able to sign knowledge
contracts with the nutrition company and take advantage of
nutritional know-how.
Research centres will want to use the system to unlock their
nutritional knowledge to interested parties all over the world.
The formulation department can learn about evolving customer
preferences by analyzing adaptations made by the client.
The Formulation as a Service platform has the additional advantage of
being easy to set up and use. There are no worries for the customer; the
solution even eliminates the need for setting up and maintaining dedicated
laptops for account managers or consultants. What’s more, Adifo backs up
the data and updates the software continuously, leaving the customer care-
free.

This Formulation As A Service platform will be launched and
demonstrated for the first time at the IPPE show: Hall A, booth 3118.

The Taiwan-based manufacturer is a company dedicated to ‘complete instrumentation solutions’. FineTek’s product line includes a varied and wide quantity of digital controllers and meters, pneumatic products, safety instruments,  level switch transmitters for solid and liquid applications. However all impressive this range of categories are, we are interested most in the manufacture of  the level sensor for silo bulk storage.

This alone is all the more impressive considering their research and development arm is an integral part of the company, which sets a strong “backbone” of the company.

International Milling Directory staff and some members are entering a second day of ISRMAX in Delhi, India. Marking events is something we at Milling International like to do for our readers and International Milling Directory members but we always look ahead to future industry events. One event we are excited about is the Soft Commodities Summit taking place in the scenic city of Geneva, Switzerland in February next year.

The volatile and changing market presents new demands, and the need has arisen to get fresh insights into dealing with priorities in the most effective way. With this in mind, the International Research Network (IRN) brings you an even more focused event with fresh content and sessions on 26-27th February 2013 where you can pick up unrivalled advice and insights on how to develop excellence in every part of your organisation; from building efficient strategies to reducing costs and risks across the supply chain and of course engaging your corporate responsibility towards the crucial new challenges of the industry.

Senior level practitioners across the soft commodities industry will be addressing exclusive presentations over the two days. Olam, Cargill, Armajaro, Ameropa, Louis Dreyfus and HSBC are among the numerous companies involved in the forum this year again. Through interactive presentations, case studies and workshops, their senior-level representatives will be looking at the best practices in terms of reducing costs and driving efficiency within the operations. They will demonstrate in real concrete cases the strategies that can be put in place to help the industry embrace effective approaches to challenges such as sustainability, integration of developing countries, keeping up with the logistical and legal aspects, risk management across the supply chain as well as human and resource asset development.

‘Jagdish Parihar, Managing Director, Natural Fibers Division, Olam International Ltd’ will be discussing the long-term future of agricultural commodities and the key challenges.

‘Pamela Kirby Johnson OBE, Director General, GAFTA’ will be discussing Warehousing – Assessing effective measures and practices in quality control, standards and certification challenges.

Financial institutions and commodity finance specialists will also have a look at the implications of the Euro zone crisis on the industry. The summit is a must-attend event for professionals involved in the soft commodities trading industry, whether they deal with rice, cocoa, cotton, sugar, coffee or grains.

It is a critical point to bring the key players in the industry together once again. SCT 2013 has been designed to allow discussions, benchmarking and networking.
