Belair Produce Transitions to Produce Pro Software to Enhance Technology; Dave Donat and Chad Berman Discuss
WOODRIDGE, IL - Link arms with the right partner, and the opportunities are endless. Belair Produce recently made the decision to optimize its operational efficiencies, embracing new technologies to scale and grow through an innovative partnership with Produce Pro Software. The solutions provider gives fresh purveyors a real-time snapshot of inventory and financial information to help them better understand how an operation is performing.
“We’re not just a software company. It’s the knowledge of our people that help make our customers successful. Belair Produce saw that in us, and we are thrilled to have started this working relationship with them,” said Dave Donat, President of Produce Pro Software.
In a recent company release, Belair Produce revealed that, when choosing a new ERP software system, the decision ultimately came down to the people.
“It wasn’t just about the software for us, it was about the people behind the software. And, the support from Produce Pro really stood out from our initial conversations,” said Chad Berman, President of Belair Produce. “The Produce Pro staff took extra time to learn about our operation, helped make us better, and ensured we were prepared for our live week. You have to put in the work, but it pays out tenfold and made us so much more comfortable with this transition.”
Belair Produce began running the Produce Pro system in early 2021, discovering that having a heightened use of technology has created numerous benefits for both the company and its customers. The company reported that, with the help of Produce Pro’s cutting-edge services, online ordering has improved customer service levels and increased orders, mistakes are down, and inventory has remained accurate.
“We also needed a software system to help improve our inventory accuracy and provide more visibility into every aspect of our business. In the past, we tried our best, but it had become very manual and labor-intensive,” Berman continued. “With Produce Pro, we can see how our company is doing at any given moment and make better decisions because of it. Plus, we can access the system anytime and anywhere, which was a huge benefit working remotely these past several months.”
The integration of Produce Pro’s software is spurred by increased demands throughout the industry, especially during the pandemic.
“With what little free time we have working in the produce business, the software system frees up a bunch of it for us. It’s so much easier to do business now, and we can do almost anything with a click of a button,” Berman added. “Produce Pro makes running a business better. Providing us with a solid foundation, as we continue to rebuild and grow, we are now running a more efficient and profitable business. I could not be happier.”
