CDC Software Named to Prestigious Food Logistics 100 List of Top Software and Technology Providers

ATLANTA (December 20, 2011) – CDC Software Corporation, a global enterprise software provider of on-premise and cloud deployments, today announced it was recently named to the FL100, Food Logistics Magazine’s eighth-annual listing of the top technology suppliers in the grocery and foodservice distribution supply chain market.

Each year, the editors of Food Logistics recognize 100 software and technology providers that better enable grocery and foodservice distributors and manufacturers to realize their business goals. This year, the publication focused on solution providers that are helping their customers differentiate themselves in the marketplace, while simultaneously facilitating improved safety and traceability throughout the supply chain. CDC Software and the other recipients are featured in the November/December 2011 issue of Food Logistics, as well as in the online version of the publication.

“With the passage of the FDA’s landmark Food Safety and Modernization Act, the entire food and beverage sector is under increased pressure to improve safety and traceability throughout the supply chain,” notes Lara L. Sowinski, editor-in-chief at Food Logistics. “In addition, the ongoing globalization of food supply chains demands closer collaboration with suppliers and enhanced visibility from farm to fork. Technology is a powerful tool that can ensure compliance, mitigate risk, and serve as a market differentiator in today’s highly competitive environment.”

“It is an honor to be recognized again in this prestigious listing as a top solution provider for the food industry,” said Sherri Rodriguez, president of Ross Systems, a subsidiary of CDC Software. “CDC Software has a deep portfolio of solutions for food enterprises that include ERP, Manufacturing Operations Management, Supply Chain and Logistics. For example, CDC Software’s Ross ERP solution has addressed the evolving compliance and food safety requirements of food enterprises for more than 20 years. Ross ERP enables standard processes to be documented and all operations and results to be tracked in order to support a food enterprise’s most stringent reporting and regulatory requirements. Ross ERP’s Trace Express application, with end-to-end bi-directional lot traceability, allows food enterprises to respond quickly and accurately, in minutes, not hours or days, to regulatory inquiries and mock-recall scenarios. It is this deep traceability and compliance functionality in Ross ERP that facilitates food safety in a food enterprise’s supply chain and which highlights why CDC Software was listed in this year’s FL100.”
