Junction Solutions, a leading provider of vertical market-specific on-premise and on-demand software applications and services for the food and beverage and multi-channel retail sectors, announced today that Upstate Niagara Cooperative, Inc., a food and beverage cooperative, will implement JunctionFB™ and Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 to support its growth and improve operational efficiency.
Upstate Niagara is a farmer-owned cooperative consisting of more than 360 family-owned dairy farms throughout Western New York and operates five production facilities. The cooperative markets a wide variety of products including milk, dip, ice cream mix, yogurt, cottage cheese, juice and flavored milk-based beverages, under several brands and also is a private-label manufacturer for regional and national retailers.
After an evaluation of several leading enterprise applications, Upstate Niagara specifically selected Junction Solutions for its extensive dairy experience and successful customer references, and the rich dairy functionality in JunctionFB that includes dairy accounting and financials, producer payroll, fluid milk and juice production, lot trace, trade promotions management, direct store delivery, wireless warehouse functionality and Genetic Optimizer, an advanced production scheduling application.
JunctionFB provides real-time visibility of a dairy enterprise’s entire business across its manufacturing and distribution operations. The direct store delivery application optimizes a company’s routes, and improves the tracking and managing of load and deliveries, all of which ultimately reduces spoilage, decreases costs, improves worker productivity and optimizes margins.
“Junction Solutions is delighted to add Upstate Niagara to our large and growing base of dairy customers,” said Christian Hutter, senior vice president, Manufacturing, Distribution, Junction Solutions. “JunctionFB specifically addresses the unique challenges of the dairy industry and can accommodate a dairy producer’s distinct requirements in variability in ingredient quality, availability, costing, regulatory compliance, and speed-to-market in short-life products.”
Specifically designed for the food and beverage industry, JunctionFB is an end-to-end enterprise suite of software applications with comprehensive functionality that includes Dairy Accounting, order management, inventory management, batching and blending, production management, quality management, lot trace and trade promotions management. Junction FB also offers its Direct Store Delivery and Wireless Warehouse solutions and GO, an advanced scheduling application.
