Upgrade leads to expanded logistics capabilities, fresh interface and faster network speeds
MINNEAPOLIS (July 8, 2014) -- HighJump Software, a global provider of supply chain management software, announced that Allan Brothers, Inc. has experienced several significant productivity and efficiency improvements since implementing HighJump™ Supply Chain Advantage Suite 12.0. Based in Naches, Wash., Allan Brothers is a grower, packer and shipper of premium apples and cherries.
The latest features of HighJump Supply Chain Advantage Suite provide Allan Brothers with lot tracing enhancements, embedded voice upgrades and a rich new interface with streamlined navigation. The company reports that programmer time for adding search fields to pages has been greatly reduced with the new filter features. In addition, Allan Brothers can now handle significantly larger amounts of information with faster performance, thanks to a nearly 75 percent reduction in network bandwidth and the ability of the application server and web server components to run on 64-bit versions of Windows servers.
“We needed to make some infrastructure changes to keep up with our growth, and we were very impressed when we saw a demonstration of the new HighJump Supply Chain Advantage version at the HighJump Innovation conference,” said Autumn Bernier, CIO and systems manager, Allan Brothers. “Since implementation, we’ve received feedback that our users love the ability to personalize their views and search criteria, and that the interface is very appealing. The enhanced graphing capabilities have given us greater visibility into our inventory and customer trends. ”
"We are proud to strengthen our relationship with Allan Brothers and provide new enhancements and tools that help them drive productivity and increase visibility as they grow,” said Gary Nemmers, senior vice president and general manager, supply chain execution group, HighJump Software. "The adaptability of our solutions empowers our customers to take advantage of new technologies while continuing our commitment to flexible technology.”
