More Wine, Spirits and Beverage Distributors Look to HighJump Software for Supply Chain Execution Solutions

HighJump Software, a 3M company, a global provider of adaptable supply chain execution solutions, today announced several customer wins and successes in the wine, spirits and beverage industry. HighJump Software's growing list of customers in this highly regulated industry includes Badger Liquor, Major Brands, City Brewing Company and Johnson Brothers Liquor Co. These companies rely on the adaptability of HighJump Software's solutions and industry-specific functionality for competitive advantage in managing unique inventory and distribution challenges.

Distributors of wine, spirits and beverages must master strict regulatory guidelines, seasonal variations in volume and multiple distribution channels. The robust functionality and adaptable architecture of HighJump Supply Chain Advantage suite enable companies to meet these demands for their own customers. The HighJump system enables increased productivity, supply chain-wide visibility and increased accuracy.

HighJump Software has worked with consulting firm CIBER to offer wine, spirits and beverage customers the valuable combination of flexible software and in-depth domain expertise. The relationship has resulted in many successful implementations.

Badger Liquor, a Wisconsin-based distributor of wines and spirits, selected HighJump Supply Chain Advantage suite to support management planning with real-time inventory and shipment data. Additionally, the flexibility of the HighJump system allows Badger Liquor to incorporate process changes quickly. "The HighJump system will enable us to achieve strong visibility, regulatory compliance and superior customer satisfaction," said Ron Sadoff, CEO, Badger Liquor.

Major Brands turned to HighJump Software for help in managing regulations and optimizing all shipping and receiving activities in its high-volume warehouse. With the HighJump system in place, the Missouri-based distributor of wine and spirits has improved customer service, fulfillment accuracy and replenishment speed. "Because of HighJump Supply Chain Advantage, we've increased operational efficiency and our ability to comply with state and federal beverage alcohol laws," said Patrick Quinn, vice president of administration, Major Brands.

"Not only are we helping our customers meet these particular supply chain challenges, but we're also giving them the tools they need to stay a step ahead of their competition," said Jon Kuerschner, vice president of applications, HighJump Software. "We're pleased to see results for our customers in terms of higher efficiencies, regulatory compliance and excellent customer service."
