FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Research Triangle Park, N.C., December 17, 2012 Optricity, supply chain optimization software innovator and provider, has been named to the ninth annual FL100, Food Logistics’ listing of technology and software providers that help food and beverage manufacturers, distributors, and retailers to achieve their business goals. In selecting recipients of the FL100 this year, Food Logistics focused on software providers and equipment and technology companies that play a pivotal role in helping customers enhance and maintain successful operations with the growing demands of the food and beverage supply chains.
“With the evolution of the food supply chain, software and technology providers are playing a more critical role in addressing needs such as end-to-end visibility and collaboration, traceability, regulatory compliance, risk management, sustainability, and cost containment,” notes Lara L. Sowinski, editor-in-chief of Food Logistics. “Technology is the competitive differentiator for companies in our industry who need to stay ahead of dynamic changes in the marketplace.”
Sheila Benny, Optricity EVP, responds to the FL100 recognition: “Optricity thanks Food Logistics magazine not just for the honor, but also for highlighting the significance of slotting optimization technology to all food industry distribution professionals. As a company, our roots reach deep into the food industry, having developed optimization software solutions in the warehousing space for many years. Our work is doubly rewarding when technologies, such as our slotting optimization software, are recognized for continuing to advance the industry with innovation that benefits our customers and the industry at large in grocery and foodservice distribution. Our recent process methodology patent for our slotting innovation techniques further demonstrates our commitment to advancing the science of optimization within the constraints of actual distribution environments. The FL100 award adds credence to our belief that slotting is an arena that all food industry operations executives and practitioners should consider important.”
