ArrowStream Named to Food Logistics’ 2016 FL100+ Top Software and Technology Providers List
Chicago, IL – January 31, 2017 – Food Logistics, the only publication exclusively dedicated to covering the movement of product through the global food supply chain, has named ArrowStream, a supply chain innovator that combines expertise in data science and analytics to improve the way supply chains perform, to its 2016 FL100+ Top Software and Technology Providers list.
The FL100+ Top Software and Technology Providers list serves as a resource guide of software and technology providers whose products and services are critical for companies in the global food and beverage supply chain. This is the fifth consecutive year ArrowStream has earned this distinction from Food Logistics.
“The software and technology sector continues to generate new and exciting opportunities for growers, food manufacturers, grocery retailers and the many logistics providers that support them,” notes Lara L. Sowinski, editorial director at Food Logistics. “Today’s cloud-based solutions and mobile connectivity are helping create tools that are more flexible, affordable and responsive, making software and technology even more valuable to those in the global food supply chain.”
ArrowStream’s software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions help supply chain teams overcome their most complex challenges. OnDemand provides predictive and actionable insights into the entire food supply chain, enabling greater visibility, control, and savings. Its streamlined interface eliminates the need for traditional data mining by bringing specific challenges to the forefront, and by cleansing, merging, and mapping restaurant data that allows immediate action to be taken. Restaurant supply chain and purchasing departments have a single source of truth with OnDemand, allowing them to make better tactical and strategic decisions.
Crossbow, a patented inbound logistics planning and performance management tool, recommends improvements to ordering and routing patterns, reducing inventory to the warehouse, eliminating unnecessary miles, and increasing freight under management. These improvements are accomplished through bridging the gap between planning and execution to increase truck utilization while lowering costs and transforming supply chains into efficient, cohesive operations. Crossbow alerts teams when orders and shipments are falling short of plan and informs them to take action to prevent losses from inefficient orders before the freight is tendered.
“At ArrowStream, we take great pride in offering cutting-edge technology solutions that deliver proven results and make a significant impact to the bottom line,” said Bill Michalski, Chief Solutions Officer at ArrowStream. “We are honored to be included on this list for the fifth consecutive year and are already hard at work in 2017 on a new set of innovations that will raise the bar once again for foodservice supply chain technology.”
Companies on the 2016 FL100+ Top Software and Technology Providers list are profiled in the November/December 2016 issue of Food Logistics, as well as online at foodlogistics.com.
