ABF was cited as an innovator in business technology by InformationWeek for developing a comprehensive financial forecasting tool that enables quarterly financial planning by company executives, using a series of key statistics to simplify expense projections and manage financial outcomes
“Today’s supply chain managers require real-time access to current and accurate logistics information,” said Dave Cogswell, president of Data-Tronics Corp., the IT sister company of ABF. “As a provider of supply chain solutions, ABF is constantly evolving and expanding its suite of IT logistics tools for enhancing total supply-chain performance with real-time shipment tracking and enhanced control of logistical management procedures.”
Cogswell continued, “Ultimately, the system gives us the ability to better forecast the near-term future and to respond accordingly with resource allocations and capital investments, thus providing a better return answer for our shareholders and a better service answer for our customers.”
This is the seventh consecutive year ABF has been recognized for its IT innovations.
