Accellos has issued a case study of AccellosOne Enterprise 3PL Cloud client Quality Refrigerated Services Inc. This case study illustrates the benefits experienced by Quality Refrigerated Services since upgrading from AccellosOne Enterprise 3PL to the Cloud-based 3PL service.
Quality Refrigerated Services operates three facilities, with 80% of its stored inventory represented by beef and pork. In early 2013, the firm upgraded from AccellosOne Enterprise 3PL to the new managed services system, which runs in the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud in order to increase revenues, streamline inventory management, accelerate kitting processes, automate software upgrades, and customize billing. “It required very little from us in terms of systems and manpower,” said Michael Amundson, Quality Refrigerated Services executive vice-president. “It provided a powerful software platform that could accommodate virtually any identifiable need. It also offered an opportunity to establish a much more flexible and efficient billing process—identifying and capturing charges is critical in the public warehousing business, and Accellos excelled in that area.” The company has now “entered a trouble-free environment that has improved flexibility, security, and productivity across the company,” said Amundson.
