NatureSweet Ltd. is the leading grower of premium, branded, best-tasting fresh tomatoes in North America. Their goal is to provide seasonal products year-round by utilizing state-of-the-art greenhouses where tomatoes are always vine-ripened and hand-picked at the peak of freshness. NatureSweet tomatoes are carefully grown, harvested and packaged by more than 6,000 full-time associates, and are sold at major grocers, mass retailers, club stores and food service operators in the United States, Canada and Mexico. Known for award-winning quality and innovative packaging, NatureSweet is also committed to having a positive social, environmental and economic impact on the communities in which they operate.
NatureSweet’s growth has been amazing and in 2016 they selected Savant Software’s WMS solution to power their distribution operations. Integrated with Microsoft Dynamics GP and using Zebra hardware, Savant was able to implement the solution at NatureSweet’s Wilcox facility in 90 days. With Savant implemented, NatureSweet was able to:
- Increase visibility of their inventory from vine to truck
- Properly manage the rotation and age of the product
- Elimination of manual errors regarding the age of the product
- Improve sales order execution via better order management
- Insure that customers farther away with greater shipping times get fresher product
“Savant as a strategic partner were able to provide Naturesweet real-time visibility to product flow from Greenhouse to Finished Goods. With an integrated Work In Process and Warehouse Management solution Naturesweet has eliminated multiple systems and manual processes that has allowed us to recognize an ROI we were forecasting. The staff and support from Savant were phenomenal; responsive and expert in their market!”
