Nueske's Improves Inventory Visibility, Data Accuracy With Support From Aptean

ATLANTA, April 30, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Aptean customer Nueske's Applewood Smoked Meats is a third-generation family-owned business that opened its doors in 1933. Their famous family recipes were brought over from the "old world" in the late 1800s and are the flavor behind their growth and demand, but their production processes were in need of modernization to help streamline operations and generate better visibility into inventory.

Before selecting and implementing Aptean's Ross ERP, Nueske's inventory data didn't provide the level of accuracy Nueske's needed to support the demand that their delicious products were creating among meat lovers around the world. The company now tracks data in real-time with Aptean's Ross ERP, which has improved accuracy while reducing inventory levels and labor costs, as well as providing Nueske's with better financial insight into the overall business.

"Ross ERP has provided us with reporting capabilities, data accuracy and inventory visibility that we've never had," said Carrie Bohlman, director of Information Technology, Nueske's. "Everyone at Nueske's, from our CFO and COO to our techs on the processing floor, interacts with our Ross ERP to gain insight into the business and execute their particular function."

Prior to implementation, Nueske's inventory process took up to 10 days. Now, a push of a button can determine what products are available at any given moment. Overall, the company has decreased overall inventory levels by about 20 percent, enabling better financial flexibility and an improved method to meeting customer demand.

"Beyond the operational improvements and even cost savings, having the Ross ERP in place as a foundation and infrastructure for us to grow is the most important benefit for our future as
a company," said Glenn Gazzolo chief operations officer, Nueske's.
