DALLAS - Dallas-based supply chain management provider OMI International has announced the successful implementation of its full suite of applications at supermarket retailer and grocery wholesaler Fresh Brands Inc., based in Sheboygan, Wis.
Following a fast-track implementation approach, Fresh Brands went live with OMI's fully integrated purchasing, billing, three-way invoice matching and voice-directed warehouse management solution at its first distribution center after an eight-month implementation process. The system is now handling full production capacity in Fresh Brands' headquarters in Sheboygan, Wisc., and is fully integrated with Fresh Brands' distribution centers in Sheboygan and Milwaukee, Wis.
Following a Return On Investment study, Fresh Brands determined OMI's suite of applications as well as Vocollect's voice technology could best support Fresh Brands' operational and financial supply chain objectives.
"As Fresh Brands continues to grow our base of retail operations, we needed a supply chain management system that would provide a strong return on investment and the ability to support our retail growth plans," said Tom Timler, VP and CIO. "With the speed in bringing this new system online, we received immediate improvements in our distribution and logistics processes. We anticipate additional payback as we optimize our business processes to take full advantage of the functionality within the OMI suite of products."
