“We outgrew our IBM system in 1998 and implemented Visual Produce shortly thereafter. Since then, our business has grown way over 300% in volume and now supports five regional warehouses in neighboring cities and states. We have upgraded to new versions several times as our growth has demanded. With Silver Creek Software continually works with our key personnel to enhance our system; we haven’t skipped a beat!”

“Visual Produce is an all-purpose solution, but one that’s designed specifically for the fresh produce industry.
Silver Creek Software has really helped pull together all of the disparate parts of our business, for example, we use Visual Produce reports on the buying side to manage the cash out and all of the pricing, including the process of setting customer prices.
Visual Produce back end is current, standard and relevant with Microsoft SQL, so there are thousands of packages we can integrate with. The fact that Silver Creek Software doesn’t use a proprietary database comes in very handy when it comes to picking out other software we want to pull data from.”Vice President, The Coastal Companies
“Most of the features and reports we use are right out of the box. We’ve done a fair amount of customizations, but the important thing is that we’re customizing what’s already in the platform instead of having to build from scratch.”
He says that in the twelve years he’s worked at The Coastal Companies, he can recall only a few instances when his department has had to ask Silver Creek Software to put a brand new system in place. And when they do, he says, Silver Creek is always very quick to respond. “It’s fast because it’s usually a matter of them changing what’s already inside Visual Produce to meet our specific needs.”Rich Kruezburg, The Coastal Companies

In the years that I’ve worked at The Coastal Companies, Silver Creek Software has always been quick to respond to our changing needs. It’s fast because many times, it’s a matter of having to change what’s already inside Visual Produce to meet our specific needs. When our changes have required a broader scope, Silver Creek’s team takes the time necessary to work all the aspects necessary to make it work for us.”Rich Kruezburg, The Coastal Companies
“Success in the produce business is all about analyzing your operations to capture every penny of the industry’s thin price margins. To do that, we need to be very precise when it comes to pricing, palletizing, loading and delivering each order.
Silver Creek Software products continue to give us greater flexibility to maintain our promise to customers: quality you can trust, service that delivers.”Michael Muzyk, Baldor Specialty Foods
