  • (1888PressRelease) May 17, 2013 - ALLENTOWN, PA - The 65-user implementation of JustFoodERP software and services begins this week at Crunch Pak in Cashmere, WA, where two million apple slices (organic and conventional) are produced daily, as well as Salad Kitz and some snack packs with carrots, grapes, cheese and dips. A privately owned company since its creation in 2000 by a small group of apple growers in Washington State, Crunch Pak today employs 700 people at their head office and main production facility. Their products are sold in Costco and other major retailers, as well as at thousands of convenience stores across the U.S. and Canada, and to the foodservice industry.

    Having experienced rapid expansion, Crunch Pak sought a full, integrated ERP system to replace its existing business software that focused specifically on grower functionality. "Crunch Pak selected JustFoodERP because the depth of the product relates to our specific business," said Eric Christensen, Director, Finance & Accounting.

    The JustFoodERP implementation at Crunch Pak will include the Financials, Reporting, Manufacturing, Purchasing, Sales & Warehouse, Payroll, Inventory Management, JF Floor, EDI, Labor Scheduling, Preventative Maintenance, Time Clock, and Reporting/Business Intelligence modules. Some 45 users will have the full JustFoodERP system license, with another 20 warehouse employees using the less expensive license for JF Floor, based on the web services capability of JustFoodERP allowing bin level inventory transactions through RF and mobile devices connected wirelessly to the network.

    "We are delighted to welcome Crunch Pak into the JustFoodERP customer family, which further establishes our reputation as the ERP system of choice in the fresh pack and snack food industries," says Marc DiGIorgio, VP, JustFoodERP. "Crunch Pak has an astonishing success story. As one of their founders notes, very few companies can claim they helped launch a completely new concept [keeping apple slices fresh] to the marketplace that has become an international success. And on top of that, growing from a few apple growers to 700 employees and nationwide sales in only 12 years; very impressive."
