Eden Prairie, MN: HighJump Software, a Minnesota-based provider of supply chain execution solutions, just announced that global brewer InBev has chosen the HighJump Supply Chain Advantage Suite for its worldwide warehouse operations.
The first implementation of the HighJump solution will be in the UK later this year. InBev will use the solution as part of a comprehensive IT strategy in order to link disparate production facilities, strengthen process execution and improve management visibility with consolidated, real-time information.
In the highly competitive beer industry, there are constantly shifting supply chain requirements and regulations at local, regional and national levels. In order to increase customer satisfaction, InBev sought the backing and support of a global brand that understands the needs of its customers, as well as the major supply chain issues and challenges.
We wanted to work with a multi-national company that not only understands the complexity of our supply chain operations, but also knows first-hand the importance of standardizing the underlying technologies to effectively support growth, says Koen Goossens, logistics director Western Europe, InBev.
The HighJump system will enable InBev to strengthen its supply chain visibility, enhance operational efficiency, heighten productivity and boost customer service levels,says Jim Walsh, vice president of international operations for HighJump.
