Sydney, Australia — February 2, 2017 — Food Logistics, the only publication exclusively dedicated to covering the movement of products through the global food supply chain, has named Esker, a worldwide leader in document process automation solutions and pioneer in cloud computing, to its 2016 FL100+ Top Software and Technology Providers list.
The FL100+ Top Software and Technology Providers (http://www.foodlogistics.com/article/12285892/the-2016-fl100) list serves as a resource guide of software and technology providers whose products and services are critical for companies in the global food and beverage supply chain.
“The software and technology sector continues to generate new and exciting opportunities for growers, food manufacturers, grocery retailers and the many logistics providers that support them,” notes Lara L. Sowinski, editorial director at Food Logistics. “Today’s cloud-based solutions and mobile connectivity are helping create tools that are more flexible, affordable and responsive, making software and technology even more valuable to those in the global food supply chain.”
Esker’s cloud solutions allow food and beverage companies to cut costs by automating manual tasks via one integrated platform. Increasing industry pressures have many companies seeking to lower operational costs and maintain supplier relationships. These companies are directly impacted by errors that occur in order processing due to increased costs from incorrect shipments, returns and lost goods. Esker helps manufacturers and distributors manage the supply chain without paper-based documents such as fax and postal mail, creating easier access to documents and reducing costs with fewer manual tasks. Supplier relationships are also improved when orders are on time, correct and can be accessed in real-time if questions arise.
“We provide a simple solution that streamlines business processes for wholesalers, distributors, manufacturers and third-party logistics providers in the food and beverage industry,” said Steve Smith, U.S. chief operating officer at Esker. “We strive to deliver the most value by giving organisations the ability to cut costs and improve supplier relationships, and consider it a significant achievement to be recognised as a top technology provider and resource in this industry.”
