RedPrairie Corporation, a consumer-driven optimization company, has announced Quantum Foods has implemented best practices at its Bolingbrook, Ill. headquarters using RedPrairie’s Warehouse Management (WMS) solution. One of the world’s largest frozen meat providers, supplying food service, military, and retail organizations, Quantum chose RedPrairie to implement a single, end-to-end system that could direct every move in to, within, and out of their global distribution center.

They provided the flexibility and support we needed to use every resource we had to full effect. The RedPrairie WMS optimized every procedure in our warehouse, and we now have a more streamlined operation that is efficient, cost-effective, and accurate.

Quantum Foods originally implemented the WMS in 2005, but new management recognized a number of opportunities available in RedPrairie's solution that were not being leveraged. RedPrairie also worked with Quantum's team to improve the integration with their host systems on which the company relies. Now, in 2008, Quantum can boast a totally efficient warehouse, and a fast return on investment – all part and parcel to the RedPrairie WMS's comprehensive task optimization technology, and over 30 years of development.

"We chose RedPrairie because of their unique ability to integrate with any system," says Quantum Foods GM for Operations Warehouse, Michael Sacco. "They provided the flexibility and support we needed to use every resource we had to full effect. The RedPrairie WMS optimized every procedure in our warehouse, and we now have a more streamlined operation that is efficient, cost-effective, and accurate."

"RedPrairie has a long track record of helping food and beverage companies optimize their distribution networks," says RedPrairie CEO Mike Mayoras. "Quantum already has a background in quality – This system will also cement a reputation for efficiency. We are proud to have played a part in bringing that potential to fruition, and we look forward to offering the same support and expertise to other companies in the future."
