Smithfield Foods Serves Up TabWare EFx From AssetPoint

GREENVILLE, SC--(Marketwire - October 8, 2007) - Smithfield Foods (www.smithfieldfoods.com) Tar Heel, Kinston, Clinton and Romania processing plants are now using TabWare EFx from AssetPoint (www.assetpoint.com) as their CMMS/EAM software for maintaining their manufacturing operations. Live use of the TabWare EFx product commenced over the past few months with work orders, spare parts inventory, requisitioning and purchasing in a total integrated maintenance, inventory and procurement suite interfaced with their existing financial software package.
