MINNEAPOLIS/DALLAS - March 13, 2018 - HighJump, a global provider of supply chain solutions, today announces the winners of its new customer innovation awards at its annual user conference, Elevate. Winners were chosen based on their progressive and innovative use of HighJump's solutions to evolve their operations to meet the increasingly complex demands of today's supply chain landscape.
This industry is changing rapidly. Supply chain professionals must juggle new business models, stressed traditional logistics systems and deconsolidating networks to meet the expectations of today's consumers. Winners of the customer innovation awards integrated HighJump's solutions to make this possible, transforming their workflows and using creative thinking to achieve outstanding business benefits, putting them on a trajectory towards the supply chain of the future.
The recipients for 2018 include:
• Convoy of Hope - Stand-Out Business Benefits: The faith-based, humanitarian organization used HighJump Warehouse Edge to automate processes and expand the global reach of its feeding initiatives. This includes recovery efforts for Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma.
• Mr. Price Group - Compelling Transformation Story: HighJump Warehouse Advantage user and one of South Africa's largest fashion retailers enlisted HighJump professional services, iWMS and Fortna to move five trading divisions from two non-automated merchandise facilities to a single, largely automated facility in under four months.
• Parts Town - Thinking Outside of the Box: The fast-growing provider of genuine OEM restaurant parts used HighJump Warehouse Advantage to tap into automation and robotics with the addition of advanced goods-to-person technology AutoStore.
• Angie's Transportation - Overcoming Adversity: After losing everything in one of the worst fires in the history of St. Louis, Missouri, the dry and refrigerated carrier used HighJump Transportation Management to get operations back up and running the next day.
"HighJump cares about its customers like no one else in the industry," said Chad Collins, CEO of HighJump. "Formally recognizing members of the HighJump customer family with our new customer innovation awards exemplifies this, while showcasing our commitment to providing the tools and services that empower them to meet their business goals."
