MILWAUKEE, Wis. - RedPrairie Corporation, a leading consumer-driven optimization company, has announced its Warehouse Management (WMS), Workforce Management (WFM) and Collaboration Portal solutions will support the Army & Air Force Exchange Service (AAFES) around the globe. A leading source of quality merchandise and services for U.S. military families, AAFES will deploy RedPrairie throughout its worldwide distribution network, with immediate plans to implement each system in two continental U.S. facilities.

RedPrairie's solutions will manage AAFES's large variety of products, ranging from food and beverage, to hazardous materials, to retail goods. In addition, the RedPrairie WMS will ship to a wide variety of store formats, including quasi-mobile installations, as well as permanent stores in several countries. The goal of the entire process is to improve efficiency within the supply chain by reducing lost inventory, optimizing labor, reducing safety stock, and lowering transportation costs.

"RedPrairie has always worked with a wide variety of products from company to company," says RedPrairie CEO Mike Mayoras, "AAFES is an amalgamation of all those industries: food and beverage, retail, automotive, and much more. We're proud to not only serve each of these verticals, but our men and women in uniform as well."
