Companies are on the hunt for ways to streamline product development. Successful new products are directly dependent on a company’s ability to harvest new ideas and screen them to generate new sources of innovation constantly.

Food and Beverage companies also rely on manual and time-consuming coordination of product development activities.

Software Solutions for Food and Beverage Industry
SpecPage was founded in 2006 by a serial entrepreneur named Mr. Severin Weiss with more than three decades of experience in creating and expanding international business systems. He recognized a crucial deficit in the food and beverage industry.
With his background in communications and information technology, Weiss saw the potential of software solutions in the food and beverage industry to eliminate the dependence on formula and specification spreadsheets. He identified that the food manufacturers who managed their product data with spreadsheets and e-mails were more vulnerable to financial loss that couldn’t be controlled, mitigated or eliminated via data management process solutions. His initial idea was to develop a dedicated software and digital process solution to aid food manufacturers streamline and grow their business.
Weiss successfully eliminated the need for formula and specifications spreadsheets through automating and digitizing processes. He helped hundreds of food manufacturers leverage their data to accelerate time to market, eliminate global regulatory compliance challenges, enhance food safety, and achieve sustainable growth and profitability.
The company grew rapidly throughout Europe and began expanding internationally by 2010. It also expanded to the U.S in 2015. To support expansion to APAC, it expanded widely to Singapore and China in 2017. Growing tremendously, SpecPage now has clients in every continent.
