San Fransisco, CA (Vocus) December 16, 2009
SmartTurn Inc., the leading On-Demand Inventory and Warehouse Management System (WMS) provider, was named to Food Logistics magazine's FL100 for the third consecutive year. The FL100 is an annual listing of technology solution and service providers that are helping grocery and foodservice manufacturers and distributors gain a competitive logistical advantage. The goal of the FL100 listing is to highlight a broad range of technology solutions and services targeted at the food industry, addressing the needs of companies of varying sizes that make up the food supply chain.
“SmartTurn has provided us with a wealth of tools to manage all the warehouse functions of our business," said Brian Chossek, President of Seven Oaks Ranch, makers of Garlic Gold® gourmet, organic food products. “While traditional enterprise software is complex and cost-prohibitive for a small company, SmartTurn’s robust on-demand approach is the foundation on which small businesses can satisfy their customers. The award is well deserved as they've developed an innovative, cost effective system to manage the supply chain.”
SmartTurn’s Web-based inventory management system is designed for quick implementation, ease-of-use, real-time inventory accuracy and warehouse performance, providing collaboration among trading partners and visibility on every item across single or multiple warehouses. From major food brand distributors and food/beverage wholesalers to restaurant and food service businesses, SmartTurn has gained wide adoption within the food logistics community because of its Web-based model, better known as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS). Among them are Frozen Gourmet and Giumarra & Associates Beverage Company that use the SmartTurn™ Inventory and Warehouse Management System and the SmartTurn Inventory Grid™ to gain the real-time inventory accuracy to achieve their sales, volume and profit objectives.
Offering customers up to 99 percent inventory accuracy, SmartTurn’s award-winning WMS system provides capabilities never offered before in the industry, such as its unique multi-tenant, multi-warehouse, multi-owner security model, within a simple, intuitive interface for users to create and control more than 2 billion custom pick policies. Compared to systems that cost tens of thousands of dollars and take months to implement, SmartTurn's award-winning solution is available for as little as $500/month per facility with unlimited users and transactions. From the smallest storage facility to some of the largest warehouses, SmartTurn can be operational in less than a month, generating a positive return on investment in less than 3 months for the vast majority of customers.
“As the economy recovers, those in the food industry have seen the importance of collaboration in how they strategically manage their businesses,” said Jim Burleigh, CEO of SmartTurn. “From inventory control to food traceability, visibility and collaboration together increases customer satisfaction. SmartTurn is honored to receive this recognition, once again reaffirming our commitment to providing affordable and agile solutions to our customers.”
