FoodChain ID Intelligent Connections

Intelligent Connections is a unique cloud-based service that is designed to overcome the common barriers that prevent companies from investing in valuable integrations, allowing you to easily integrate your key systems with popular solutions like ESHA's Genesis R&D.

We aim to make integration easier and remove the traditional frictions that can make the process daunting. This dramatically reduces the level of effort required for your teams and lowers the overall cost of infrastructure and ongoing support. We've also heavily invested in insights and monitoring, to ensure that you have maximum visibility of integration performance.

What's Driving Integrated Nutrition & Labelling?

There's a lot of time and effort required to get your data in the right place at the right time with a manual process. Managing this can be challenging, labor intensive and prone to risk. With better integrated compliance you can avoid such challenges and  risks, meeting business and market requirements far more efficiently.

Market Demands

  • Market expansion opportunities
  • More trials and experimentation
  • Increasingly complex and shifting regulatory environment

Digital Demands

  • Importance of robust, digital product definition
  • Early feedback and "design for compliance" are must-have capabilities
  • Requirement for cloud-based services

Demand for Agility

  • React to disruptions
  • Resource efficiency
  • Speed, with standards
  • Reduce burden of change maintenance

What's Wrong with Traditional Integration?

Traditional integration has a number of challenges that make the need for Intelligent Connections clear:

  • Significant time is required from key stake holders to learn the capabilities of the system before they need to design and implement them. Because of this, there is a frequent risk of abandonment at early stages.
  • The team involved need to be proficient on endpoints and APIs, with ongoing expertise from technologists required. Often teams are learning as they go, which means unpredictable timing and costs. 
  • To test and deploy requires extensive testing, and with a reluctance to invest in automated testing which causes risk and increased cost of maintenance long term.
  • Maintenance is key yet often forgotten when it comes to budgets for projects such as these. Infrastructure costs will be long-term and can be expensive. IT & development maintenance is also required, and there is always the risk of a loss of working knowledge over time, if staff move to new roles, etc.

"We eliminated a lot of risk for manual error via automation...reducing risk for the brand"

"The biggest thing for us was that we gained capacity by automating previously manual steps in the process. This paid off significantly."
