Fully Integrated Software Solutions for "Not for Profit" Operations

ASCTrAX® testimonial ASC solutions

"Our choice to partner with ASC was the best thing that we ever did for our warehouse distribution center operation. Our labor productivity was dramatically improved and our inventory accuracy was near 100%. These two reasons alone paid for the system in only a few months. But, a real gain was our ability to provide a much better and improved service for our customers."

- Ed C., Distribution Manager, Kimberly Clark Medical Products

"Not for profit" organizations are a specific industry that we take special pride in. These organizations usually are food banks or other charitable organizations. They require certain features for their operations that are different than regular commercial distribution operations. Based on our extensive experience in this specific industry, we understand these requirements very well.

Incentives: If you are a "not for profit" organization, we offer special incentives and donations to assist you in handling your supply chain operations (see donations section below.)

Experience with Proven Solutions:

Food banks depend on quality tracked goods to insure quality food items for consumption, and we take special pride in being able to provide solutions for this. Just like any other food distributor, food banks need lot tracking, expiration date controls, quality control processes, and multi-zone controls for frozen foods, cooler goods, dry goods, chemicals, allergens, "special shopping areas," etc. In addition, donations must be assessed for acceptance into your facility in a food-grade manner.

For more than twenty-five years now, ASC has been instrumental in helping "not for profit" organizations track and ship products throughout their distribution networks. These "not for profit" groups use the same solution that some of the largest companies in the world trust for these complicated food distribution tasks. ASCTrac® is used by the largest food manufacturing company in the world.

When world-class customers must have reliable performance for multi-shift, multi-plant enterprises in tough to track environments, they contact us to solve their challenges. They depend upon ASC solutions to empower their mission critical supply chains.

Donations Encouraged:

We encourage our food manufacturers and distributors to donate goods to food banks. A little food goes a long way to a person in need. In turn, ASC donates goods and services to food banks to lend a helping hand. Contact us for more details on this program.

Giving Back to the Community:

donateWe give back to the community when you purchase something from us in some way to help those in need. We support food banks, medical research, school and community organizations.

We also encourage our supply chain clients to donate goods when they can as a little goes a long way to help those in need.

Increased Abilities with Proven Solutions:

Using ASCTrac ® WMS solutions, these "not for profit" organizations have increased their ability to accurately deliver food to needy organizations by an average of 30%. Plus, with ASCTrac ® WMS, they have 100% lot and expiration date tracking, directed work flows, and special process designed just for "not for profit" food organizations.

Certain special processes exist in the "not for profit" food distribution networks that do not exist in the commercial environments. ASC solutions handle these unique needs such as donations and sortation (a process where pallets of goods are sorted into the individual items and accounted for), "food stores" where special shopping occurs by the organizations that are served. Some of these processes are very fast moving processes and all goods still have to be accounted for as food safety recalls can still happen in this environment just as in the commercial environment. Also, ASC has web based order entry solutions that are tailored for the special needs of food banks. End users can place orders for allocated inventory or specials online directly.

Field Proven:

ASC solutions have been proven in the field when customers demand reliable performance for multi-shift, multi-plant enterprises in tough to track environments. Our solutions have been used in the food and beverage industry for items such as: milk, Coca-Cola®, beer, dry foods, food components and ingredients, dairy products such as cheese and ice cream, meats, cake mixes, and many others. Other similar industries are: medical products, nutraceuticals, and pharmaceutical, as well as third party logistics groups (3PLs) for co-packers and food-pharma grade warehouses.

ASC includes variance costing for manufacturing as food manufacturing processes may be "process based manufacturing." This is where lean manufacturing and costing is a great benefit, and our lean costing process is seamless all the way to the financial system.

ASCTrac® is designed for users who need to instantly handle any product recalls throughout their supply chain. Since we focus on true food-grade lot tracking in all of our applications, we exceed all FDA mandates.

In 2005, Microsoft® allied with ASC for a Food and Beverage solution for its own customers. After much investigation, the ASCTrac® WMS solution was chosen by Microsoft® as one of the best WMS solutions for the food and beverage industry and was included in the Microsoft® ISV solution stack. ASC has seamless connectivity to Microsoft® Dynamics® financial products.
