Auburn Hills, Mich. (PRWEB) April 23, 2009
Plex Systems, Inc., provider of Plex Online software for manufacturers, today announced that Ronald Zilkowski, CFO of Cuisine Solutions, Inc. will serve as the kick-off presenter at the upcoming Food Automation & Manufacturing Conference at the Ritz Carlton in Sarasota, Florida. Zilkowski will discuss how an integrated systems solution provider such as Plex Systems can provide the tracking and traceability functionality that is so critical in the food manufacturing business today.
Cuisine Solutions is a leading global manufacturer of frozen entrees and sauces, known for inventing and perfecting the revolutionary "sous-vide" (under vacuum) cooking technique that leads to improved taste, texture, and color in food products. By 2007, the company's IT systems and reporting processes had become outdated and it needed a systems overhaul along with improved tracking capabilities. Over the next several months, Cuisine Solutions implemented Plex Systems' software as a service (SaaS) solution, Plex Online, as its new manufacturing system, and has been enjoying the benefits of an integrated system ever since.
Zilkowski will highlight those benefits during his presentation, "Bringing Clarity to Operations Through Track and Trace," scheduled for 9:15 a.m. on April 27, immediately following the keynote address on the first day of the three-day Food Automation & Manufacturing Conference. He will focus on how Plex Online has enabled Cuisine Solutions to streamline operations and improve its tracking and traceability.
Plex Systems is exhibiting at booth #202 at the Food Automation & Manufacturing Expo, which runs alongside the conference. Those interested in attending the conference and/or expo can register at the event web site: http://www.bnpevents.com/FE/FAM/
