Accellos, a provider of supply chain execution software, has issued a case study of AccellosOne Enterprise 3PL Cloud customer Quality Refrigerated Services Inc. This case study illustrates the benefits experienced by Quality Refrigerated Services since upgrading from AccellosOne Enterprise 3PL to Accellos’ Cloud-based 3PL service.

Quality Refrigerated Services currently operates three facilities, with 80 percent of its stored inventory represented by beef and pork. In early 2013, Quality Refrigerated Services upgraded from AccellosOne Enterprise 3PL to Accellos’ new managed services solution, which runs in the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud in order to increase revenues, streamline inventory management, accelerate kitting processes, automate software upgrades and customize billing.

According to Quality Refrigerated Services, Executive Vice President Michael Amundson, “it required very little from us in terms of systems and manpower. It provided a powerful software platform that could accommodate virtually any identifiable need. It also offered an opportunity to establish a much more flexible and efficient billing process: identifying and capturing charges is critical in the public warehousing business and Accellos excelled in that area.” The company has now “entered a trouble-free environment that has improved flexibility, security and productivity across the company,” says Amundson.

Assurance of Supply: A Top Concern for Manufacturers

Every manufacturer has an assurance of supply problem to some extent due to the complexity of global sourcing. For years, manufacturers were blessed with high margins but margins have grown paper thin. You can’t fill up your distribution centers with excess inventory – not only is there a cost factor but the pace of business and consumer buying trends causes goods to quickly turn obsolete. Assurance of supply provides the speed and agility that is essential to being able to compete in today’s market.
