Capitol City Produce Turns to Produce Pro for Its Fully-Integrated Software Needs
WOODRIDGE, IL - Seaching for a fully-integrated software system is no easy task, and Capitol City Produce can attest to that. The company noted that it has been using two separate software systems to run its business of 71 years, and felt the need for a change. Looking to streamline operations, they searched for an all-in-one solution and found it in the form of Produce Pro Software.
“After speaking with many other produce distributors, Produce Pro Software easily became the obvious choice,” said Andrea Goodman, Director of Information Services, in a press release. “When looking at potential software solutions, Produce Pro’s Core and Warehouse Management System were key factors in our selection process. Plus, they offer 24 hour support, have a dedicated research and development team, and their employees have extensive industry knowledge.”
Once Produce Pro was selected as the software of choice, implementing the new system was a breeze, noted Capitol City Produce.
“Previously, we were required to manage our operation utilizing and maintaining two separate systems which created double work for many of our employees along with several opportunities for inaccurate inventories,” commented Caleb Prejean, Director of Operations. “The move to Produce Pro has streamlined our processes and allowed more inventory control. This created confidence throughout our entire organization and eliminated the redundancy of multiple tasks; saving many man hours which can now be focused on other areas.”
Since transitioning to Produce Pro, Capitol City Produce employees from all departments have felt the positive effects and are extremely pleased.
“To be honest, switching over to a new system really scared me, and I thought it would be hard to learn everything, but it was easy. Now, I can’t imagine working without Produce Pro,” commented Brittany Ezell, Dispatch Clerk.
“Overall, the program is easy to use and navigate,” added Mike Fruge, Director of Sales.
There’s been only positive impacts since transitioning to Produce Pro, added Goodman. “Our Produce Pro team was incredibly knowledgeable, responsive, engaging, and helpful. We were extremely impressed. Produce Pro provided us with experts in every area of our operation. And, their team was onsite 24/7 during our go live week to assist each department with their specific daily processes and how-to questions. The transition was practically seamless to our customers, which was a bonus.”
