Standard Sales Selects Softeon Beverage to Increase Control and Visibility Across Multiple States
RESTON, Va. --(Business Wire)--
Standard Sales Company, L.P., one of the largest beer wholesalers in the
United States, has selected Softeon's Route
Accounting System (RAS), Warehouse
Management System (WMS), Transportation Planning Module (TPM), and
With nine locations spread over three states, Standard Sales will use
Softeon's Total Beverage Solution to centralize their back-office
operations with a single system processing across all sites.
With Softeon's integrated RAS and WMS functionality, Standard Sales will
boost its operational efficiencies with real-time visibility into all
stages of the distribution cycle, as well as strengthen control of the
budgeting processes, across its broad landscape.
"As our company grew and we expanded our operations, we found that we
needed to modernize our in-houe RAS system with a comprehensive
solution that could handle the complexities inherent in running a
multi-state distribution business that could provide deeper financial
visibility, from a transaction level all the way up to the general
ledger," said Darla LaShomb, Chief Financial Officer for Standard Sales.
"With Softeon's beverage solution, we get the visibility and control we
need on a web-based platform. And, in the process, we further streamline
our warehouse operations and increase productivity."
"Previously, Standard Sales Company, L.P. was running a custom in-house
RAS system only. Now by adding WMS, they will gain warehouse
productivity by optimizing travel paths, better slotting and utilizing
voice picking and many more operational improvements. Adding the TPM,
and creating delivery truck plans integrated with customer pre-orders
and peddle sales, will help quickly optimize their bay truck and cart
loading," added Shyam (News - Alert) Krishna, Executive Vice President for Softeon.
"The visibility across all locations will be real-time with KOIs, events
and reporting through smart mobile technology," he added.
