Ruckers Candy selects jLAN Mobile to automate its Route Accounting Processes

jLAN Technologies Inc, a leading provider of Mobile Sales Force Automation software and a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, announced today that Ruckers Candy, one of Americas leading candy distributors, has successfully deployed jLAN Mobile Software from jLAN Technologies to automate its mobile sales distribution process.

Rucker’s Candy distributes its candy and snack products via a route sales team to its wholesale and retail establishment customers. According to Rob Rucker, VP of Sales, previous to deploying jLAN Mobile route sales representatives would hand-write order and delivery information and fax, email or call in transaction information to the office for manual entry into the company’s Dynamics Navision accounting system.

In order to increase efficiencies, eliminate paper work and increase inventory accuracy Ruckers searched for a mobile solution their route sales representatives could use during the order taking and delivery process. By deploying jLAN Mobile, representatives now enter orders directly on their Windows Mobile device, which creates real-time transactions from the customer site. Moreover, the candy distributor was able deploy the jLAN Mobile Server to wirelessly integrate the system to their back-office Microsoft Dynamics NAV accounting system over the Verizon wireless data network.

"With jLAN Mobile, our route sales team is much more effective than ever and business data is instantaneously available for our Sales, Finance and Distribution teams," Rucker said. "By deploying mobile devices to our route sales team, the jLAN solution has enabled us to improve our sales processes, increase customer service and manage overall costs.”

“We look forward to a long term partnership with Ruckers,” said jLAN Technologies President, Mr. Andres Link. Link added “Candy and Snack distribution is a key focus area for our company and we are extremely pleased to be working with such a prestigious company and brand such as Ruckers Candy. The feedback from our clients about jLAN Mobile continues to be tremendously positive. Our customers repeatedly tell us that mobility is must have strategic component in order to maintain a competitive edge.”

Ruckers searched for a modern route accounting system to automate its manual processes and provide visibility into its daily operations.

We strongly believe our customer will appreciate and benefit from our choice.”
