Ed Miniat Selects Whistle SCE

Ed Miniat, a leading processor of beef and edible oil products for the foodservice industry, has licensed Coolearth’s Whistle SCE solution to address its warehouse management and production execution needs.

Ed Miniat had run into several obstacles in a major ERP implementation caused by functional gaps in inventory control, barcoding, and catch-weighting. They selected Coolearth for its extensive functionality, seamless ERP integration, and simple out-of-the-box implementation plan requiring no customization.

“Ed Miniat is a great example of how easy it is to implement Whistle, even in a highly specific vertical industry” said David Zimmerman, Coolearth President and CEO. “In about ten weeks, they will go from manual paper processes to using Whistle over a wireless network to manage all their warehouse and shop floor activities.”

“Miniat will begin to experience return on investment about six months after going live,” said Zimmerman. “This model is repeatable for all of our customers, no matter what food or chemical vertical they may fall in.”

With successful Whistle implementations under their belts at Lopez and Carneco Foods, major suppliers of beef and pork products to McDonald’s and Wal-Mart, respectively, Coolearth’s is fast becoming the defacto SCE solution in the meat industry.
