Beaver Street Fisheries and Bahamas Food Services Select RedPrairie to Support Growth


Distribution leaders automate operations with warehouse, workforce and transportation management solutions from RedPrairie

RedPrairie Corp., a global supply chain and retail technology provider, announced today that Jacksonville, Florida-based Beaver Street Fisheries, Inc., and Bahamas Food Services, its sister company in Nassau, Bahamas, selected RedPrairie's enterprise solutions to help support their rapidly expanding food distribution businesses.

Beaver Street Fisheries is a seafood and meat supplier for food service, wholesalers, retailers, distributors and national restaurant chains in North America. It plans to use RedPrairie Warehouse Management (WMS), Workforce Management (WFM) and Transportation Management System (TMS) at its Jacksonville facility to maximize efficiencies and reduce costs.

Bahamas Food Services is one of the largest full-line foodservice distributors in the Bahamas. As part of its plan to double the size of its Nassau warehouse, Bahamas Food Services is deploying RedPrairie WMS and WFM solutions to replace manual processes, increase inventory visibility and accuracy, expand workforce management capabilities, and optimize all aspects of operations.

"RedPrairie's comprehensive enterprise platform is ideally designed to meet the needs of our growing business," said Scott Lane, chief information officer at Beaver Street Fisheries. "As our business thrives and expands, we realized the strategic necessity to automate our warehouse, labor and transportation processes. Using RedPrairie, we can now track products achieving unprecedented inventory visibility and accuracy. Additionally, by automating our workforce management processes, we can more efficiently manage higher volumes of orders without having to hire additional resources saving time and money."

The phased implementation of RedPrairie's solutions is already underway with Beaver Street Fisheries. The Jacksonville warehouse went live in early February, ahead of schedule.

"RedPrairie's industry expertise combined with their ability to marshal resources enabled us to meet our aggressive deployment schedule for our Jacksonville facility," said Lane. "We are very pleased with our decision to partner with RedPrairie and look forward to a mutually beneficial long-term relationship."

"We've been impressed with the talent and commitment of the Beaver Street Fisheries' project team, which has enabled us to keep the project on track and rapidly implement our solution," said Joe Juliano, president for RedPrairie. "RedPrairie's proven supply chain experience combined with our food and beverage expertise will help Beaver Street Fisheries to achieve new heights of efficiency as its business scales."
