What is Canopy?

Canopy is an entirely Windows-based suite of application modules designed for the Food Industry by Food Industry professionals. It was developed to address technology requirements unique to the Food Industry. This fully integrated ERP software solution is authored, sold, and fully supported by Aspen Systems.

Canopy utilizes the latest in Microsoft’s development tools and takes full advantage of the powerful Microsoft SQL relational database. Canopy’s report writer, Aspen View, gives the user full access to all data in every module. Easily design sophisticated or simple reports to extract the exact information you need and present it in a format that you wish to see. This complements the more than 425 standard reports that are already available in the Canopy Core Modules.

The software runs on the Microsoft Windows Server operating system and is able to support multiple locations and remote users in a virtual environment. The system can run in house or in a hosted environment, giving you many options for powerhouse processing and ease of support. Windows PCs or Thin Clients provide users access to the system.
