HighJump Software, a global provider of supply chain execution solutions, has announced that Schoeps Ice Cream has selected the HighJump mobile sales and delivery applications to provide improved customer service while controlling costs.
Schoeps Ice Cream, a Madison, Wisc.-based ice cream manufacturer and distributor with both local and national distribution operations, will implement HighJump Route Administrator, HighJump Route Assistant and Usable GPS, products new to HighJump Software through the acquisition of BelTek Systems Design.
Schoeps Ice Cream, a long-time HighJump Software customer, was looking for a solution to take its distribution operations to the next level through real-time transmission of orders, sales data and inventory position. The company selected the HighJump solutions for their easy-to-use interfaces and functional capabilities. The software will support the delivery of Schoeps Ice Cream products via 21 pre-sell and delivery routes throughout the Midwest.
The HighJump system will create efficiencies across the companys operations. Route drivers will transmit orders in real-time and have access to up-to-the-minute inventory counts, enabling more efficient scheduling of warehouse workers and improved customer service levels. Additionally, the system will allow drivers to scan items instead of entering information manually and provide real-time tracking of driver location and automated order processing, leading to labor efficiencies and cost savings.
In todays challenging economic environment, we needed to create new efficiencies in our operations, to essentially do more with less. With the HighJump solutions, we will be poised to grow our business as the market evolves, said Jeremy Raether, Systems Manager, Schoeps Ice Cream. Additionally, Usable GPS will take the real-time data environment to the next level, providing us with insight into what is going on in the field as it happens, enabling us to improve our customer service in a very competitive environment.
