CHICAGO – January 23, 2008 –John Galt Solutions, the leading provider of affordable planning solutions for the consumer-driven supply chain, today announced that it has been named as a top technology provider by Food Logistics magazine in its fourth annual Food Logistics 100.
The Food Logistics 100 features top technology solution providers that serve the needs of a unique segment of the food service industry. The list is compiled through end-user nominations. Each company listed is top in their field for assisting food, beverage and consumer packaged goods companies to transform their supply chains.
A large number of food and beverage companies – including Blue Bunny, Delicato Vineyards, Keebler Company, Pilgrim’s Pride, Starbucks Coffee and Tasty Baking – use solutions from John Galt to increase forecast accuracy, optimize inventory levels and maximize supply chain performance. The more innovative food companies are using John Galt’s unique new Shelf Level Forecasting which leverages Point of Sale (POS) data to dramatically improve their forecast accuracy and reduce costly stock-outs.
Anne Omrod, CEO of John Galt Solutions commented, “Food, beverage and consumer goods companies are plagued with an ever changing product mix as well as numerous promotions. Our new Shelf Level Forecasting solution radically simplifies the demand planning and replenishment process because it starts with consumer purchases, not retail orders, as the baseline. We’ve seen this more dynamic, weekly forecast double accuracy. We’re honored to be recognized for our contributions to the industry,” she concluded.
Hundreds of companies were nominated by end-users and solution providers. Winners were chosen by the magazine's editorial staff. The final list is featured in the cover story of the November/December 2007 issue of Food Logistics, as well as online athttp://www.foodlogistics.com.
