SYSPRO, the leading provider of visionary, pragmatic ERP software, today announced that SYSPRO customer Vanns Spices Ltd., has been named a winner of the seventh annual Progressive Manufacturing 100 Awards, selected by Managing Automation Media, a Thomas Publishing Company, LLC publication.
Vanns, a manufacturer of spices, spice blends, heirloom beans, grains and rice and flavorings, was selected a winner in the category "Data & Integration Mastery." Based in Baltimore, Maryland, Vanns sells products under the Vanns label, but the majority of the firm's business is directed at developing and producing private label spice lines for markets, restaurants and Websites. The company's effective utilization of SYSPRO ERP software easily enables Vanns to employ the custom-shop type manufacturing necessary to fill numerous spice blends and private label order variations, as well as fully comply with supermarket customers that require suppliers have the ability to do lot tracking.
An independent judging panel chaired by David R. Brousell, Editor-in-Chief, Managing Automation Media judged the entries.
The PM100 Winners will be honored and presented with their awards at the Progressive Manufacturing Awards Gala to be held at The Breakers in Palm Beach, Florida, in May. More than 200 manufacturing technology executives are expected to attend.
"As we prepare for the eventual end of the Great Recession, these winning companies dramatically underscore how the manufacturing industry will begin to emerge in an even stronger position once a recovery takes a firm hold," said David R. Brousell, Editor-in-Chief of Managing Automation Media.
Joey Benadretti, President SYSPRO USA commented,"Tenacity and technology are the two ingredients fundamental to future success of mid-size manufacturing and distribution enterprises. SYSPRO supports tenacious entrepreneurship with equally powerful enabling ERP technologies, a recipe for success."
