Liquid Purchasing Traceability from Start to Final Product
Liquid Procurement has been designed to stand alone or work with DSI’s other modules to handle all of your incoming dairy liquid purchases. The term ‘dairy liquid’ can encompass a wide range of user-defined items including: milk, cream, skim, condensed products, custom mixes, by-products, and a variety of other liquids. The purchase system provides tracking of bulk liquid purchases from vendors for both traceability and accounting purposes. Liquid Procurement is often integrated into scales and meters for more accurate shrink tracking and real time information.
Manage your Plant and Farm Billing
Liquid Sales provides control and sales of bulk dairy liquids. This system is designed with Dairy in mind to handle a variety of pricing options including contracts, spot loads, and other one-off situations. Charges can be set using markets, over orders, and other pricing mechanisms.

Integrated Lab Solution for Procurement and Finished Goods
DSI’s lab collection module provides functionality to both the procurement modules and to the ERP modules. Lab collection works for internal and external labs handling producer testing, inbound liquid testing, and component and microbiology testing. Lab samples can be tested for fat, protein, lactose, total solids non-fat and somatic cell, as well as a variety of other specifications. This module is often integrated into lab analyzers such as a Bently, Foss, Multi-Spec or Delta to avoid data entry and ensure accurate data.

As orders are scheduled and routes selected, the customer gets access to that information, along with a confirmation and expected delivery times.
