“Now all the pickers have to do in the pack out room is scan one item and the program does the rest… The pickers just input the quantities they made, hit the final button, print the label and it’s done.”

“We outgrew our IBM system in 1998 and implemented Visual Produce shortly thereafter. Since then our business has grown 300% in volume and now supports five regional warehouses in neighboring cities. With Silver Creek Software, we haven’t skipped a beat!”

“Generally speaking, H. Brooks and Company’s major benefits from using the Silver Creek pack out solution include savings of both time and movement, and the ability to accurately price repacked products. The net effect is that the company has a much better understanding of its gross profit, and increased efficiency has helped H. Brooks offset the cost of the pack out program itself.”

“What we liked about Silver Creek Software’s WMS was that it wasn’t hard-coded with only one set of functioning rules. WMS enabled our IT department to build any algorithm we needed—to create rules that would take into account the specific properties of each product. In effect, we were able to adapt software to meet our business processes, instead of having to make our processes adapt to software.”

“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 gives us the flexibility to maintain our promise to customers: quality you can trust, service that delivers.”

“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.”

“It is almost unprecedented these days for a company to be able to use the same technology for that span of time. The Coastal Companies’ Director of IT Rich Kreuzburg chalks it up to flexibility.”

“We have had Silver Creek’s Visual Produce software for seven years now and we continue to reap the rewards from making the switch. The benefits have improved all facets of the business from accounting to transportation. Managing the business is much easier and more profitable since implementing VP. I thought I knew what we were getting at the time but it has turned out to exceed our expectations. The program is a comprehensive solution focused on our industry that allows us to manage beyond just the basics. We can manage so many things like shelf life, cooler set up, puller productivity, FIFO, territory sales teams and much more. Two glaring examples, our puller productivity increased by over 50% and the number of cases we disposed of on a monthly basis decreased by 75%. You add to that a very personalized approach to customer service and we couldn’t have made a better choice for our software provider.”

“I use Visual Produce every day to handle our manufacturing,” Moore says. “Visual Produce is so flexible that we can use the same platform to manage both our fresh produce business and our manufacturing. We manage inventory, create custom sales reports and analyze sales per customers so that we always have a handle on our sales and productivity.”

“Visual Produce is an all-purpose solution, but one that’s designed specifically for the fresh produce industry. Over the years, it’s really helped pull together all of the disparate parts of our business.”
