King and Prince Seafood Goes Live With Coolearth’s Whistle SCE Solution

Coolearth Software is pleased to announce that King & Prince Seafood, a distinguished supplier of high quality seafood products, went live today with Coolearth’s Whistle Supply Chain Execution solution.

King & Prince has been providing the retail food industry with premium seafood products for more than 50 years. It has an unparalleled reputation for high procurement standards and excellence in research and development. Because of their commitment to excellence, King & Prince spent a lot of time evaluating Whistle SCE to make sure they would not have to compromise on quality to streamline production.

Whistle SCE seamlessly interacts between the warehouse users and the ERP system. In conjunction with Whistle, King & Prince Seafood Corporation has also implemented Coolearth Software’s Dashboard reporting tool providing them a live view into their warehouse and ERP data through a web page front end. Dashboard is a turnkey solution for the floor supervisors. Some of the abilities that Dashboard provides the floor supervisors are visibility into order fulfillment rates, completion statistics, product shortages and production schedules for product shortages. The Dashboard allows supervisors to choose, plan, and assign to pickers which orders are to be staged and shipped each day.

Whistle SCE will be responsible for handling all the transactions of King & Prince Seafood’s receiving and production cycles; including picking, allocating, pick confirmations, the truck load-verification process, and shipping/receiving. With its seamless integration, Whistle SCE talks to the ERP system and reports all new production and receipts as they happen. The integration is the key. Without the seamless integration back to ERP, Whistle SCE would be just another flimsy warehouse “management tool” seen everywhere in the market today. Using barcode scanners and fork truck mounted units, users are able to manage the warehouse through easy to follow and use screens with no personal interaction with the ERP System. With Whistle, you always know where your product is.

“We were thrilled to add King & Prince to our growing list of premier companies,” said Carsten Erickson, CEO and president of Coolearth Software. “We are excited that after careful consideration, King & Prince selected our Whistle SCE solution to help them meet their unique business needs now and into the future.” It is also a testimony to the combined efforts of our organizations that less than six (6) months after choosing Whistle, that King & Prince is deriving benefit from the solutions and their utilization while keeping to the established timeline and budget criterions. According to Bob Ashford, CIO of King & Prince Seafood Corporation, “This solution really works. It is a well-developed, integrated approach to warehouse management and shop floor control. An Instant Return on Investment (ROI) is only possible with software that really works. Whistle works.”
