RADIO BEACON WMS Gives Teasdale Quality Foods the Tools to Better Manage their Materials Management Processes

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Nov. 1, 2005) -

Leading retailer of hominy and bean products automates production and shipping processes to increase productivity and efficiency with warehouse management tools.

Radio Beacon Inc., a developer of warehouse management software for 3PLs, manufacturers and distributors, announced today that Teasdale Quality Foods is improving order accuracy and inventory management using RADIO BEACON WMS at its 120,000 sq. foot warehouse. Teasdale Quality Foods is the leading producer of canned hominy corn and bean products in the Western United States. They have been serving one of the fastest growing segments in the retail and food service industry for over 60 years and offer a wide variety of products, sizes and custom formulations. With RADIO BEACON WMS the organization is easily able to maintain their commitment to the highest quality of product and service.

On September 12th, Teasdale Quality Foods implemented RADIO BEACON WMS Expert Edition version 5.4 in their Atwater, California distribution facility. Since their implementation, Teasdale has been able to more accurately track inventory within their warehouse. Additionally, with Radio Beacon's Web Dispatch, the organization is able to allocate products to a specific sales order based on a variety of criteria, including order priority and required ship date. By allocating products based on required date, Teasdale is able to plan more accurately which allows for better truck scheduling. When sales orders are preallocated, short shipments are caught by the dispatcher before orders are picked, thereby increasing picking efficiency and maximizing fill rates.

Radio Beacon's experience and seamless integration with Sage Software's MAS 200 ERP made Teasdale's decision to select RADIO BEACON as their new warehouse management system easy. Teasdale's warehouse is realizing substantial benefits because of RADIO BEACON's smooth integration with Sage MAS 200. The organization is able to gain complete real-time visibility into its operations and supply chain performance through the numerous reports RADIO BEACON provides thereby enabling them to leverage this information to make more informed business decisions.

"We are pleased to have partnered with SWK Technologies and Warehouse Management Solutions Inc. for integration and implementation services to deliver a fully integrated MAS 200 solution to Teasdale Quality Foods," said Dale Jeffries, President, Radio Beacon Inc. "As Radio Beacon provides integrations to the full Sage ERP suite of products (ACCPAC, BusinessVision, MAS 90, MAS 200, MAS 500, PFW), Teasdale can rest assured that Radio Beacon will be there to facilitate the transition no matter which product Teasdale grows into."

"Teasdale Quality Foods and Radio Beacon entered into a partnership to automate our production and shipping processes," said Melanie Jones, CFO, Teasdale Quality Foods. "Radio Beacon Inc., WMSI and SWK were professional and efficient throughout the entire process. We anticipate a long working relationship with all parties."
