Famous Software's Heather Hammack Discusses One Million Dollar Walmart Transaction Milestone
FRESNO, CA - In fresh produce, your business is only as good as your partnerships allow you to be. For Famous Software and Walmart, that means both businesses are thriving. As of this summer, the software company has hit over over one million successful transactions between Walmart and its customer base through the use of Famous Integration Services (FIS) product line.
“Famous Software has offered a seamless integrated EDI solution since 2001, and PTI data has been generated with the use of our ERP system for over seven years. We have over 1,500 fresh produce customers, and working directly with retail partners such as Walmart to provide value to our customers is of the utmost importance to us,” shares Heather Hammack, President.
Using the FIS line allows companies to electronically trade with their customers and suppliers either directly or via the iTradeNetwork, making transactions with Walmart efficient and accurate for large and small enterprises alike. The feedback from Famous’ customers has been one collective sigh of relief, Heather tells me. These are just a few highlights customers say make FIS products an obvious choice for their integration needs:
- Fewer Clerical Errors
- Faster Communication
- Improved Product Tracking
- Less Paperwork with Corresponding Cost Savings
- Famous to Famous
- Improved Order Tracking
- Meets Large Customers' Requirements
- Invoices Get Sent Sooner and Paid Sooner
Further, when Walmart announced that it would be requiring both Produce Traceability Initiative (PTI) labels and Advanced Ship Notification (ASN) information earlier this year and that the programs would be implemented in mid-2017, Famous Software was ready to assist its over 100 customers who trade with Walmart. Using the FIS product line, Famous was able to share the data Walmart was requesting from its suppliers in advance of receiving their shipments, expediting the process and providing more visibility throughout the supply chain.
With one million Walmart and Famous transactions in the books, this fruitful partnership is nowhere close to slowing. Walmart will be increasing the number of customers it requests implement PTI and ASN requirements based on the seasonality of what each company supplies. Don’t be the last to have Famous Software walk you through what you need to know.
