Food Logistics, the only publication exclusively dedicated to covering the movement of product through the global food supply chain, has named Esker, a worldwide leader in AI-driven process automation solutions and pioneer in cloud computing, to its 2020 FL100+ Top Software and Technology Providers list.
The annual FL100+ Top Software and Technology Providers honours leading software and technology providers that ensure a safe, efficient and reliable global food and beverage supply chain.
“From fleet management to warehouse management to simply just track and trace along the cold food chain, these software and technology providers have definitely stepped it up to ensure cold food and beverage products continue moving along the line without incident,” says Marina Mayer, Editor-in-Chief of Food Logistics and Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “This pandemic has thrown the food industry a curveball, but many of these providers fast-tracked the development and deployment of their solutions to ensure food safety, traceability, visibility and quality assurance. So, to these winners and others in the industry working to make a difference, thank you!”
As the food and beverage industry continues to grapple with unprecedented growth and urgency, it has become more critical than ever to ensure back-office efficiency, guarantee accurate data and encourage scalability and cash flow. There has been a monumental shift in how business is conducted, such as functioning with limited resources and the introduction of widespread remote working. This shift has only increased the need for cash on hand and more efficient, cost-effective automation.
With Esker’s 360-degree view over customer interactions, food and beverage companies are able to automate the manual tasks within order management, invoice delivery and cash application, preventing costly errors like sluggish cash flow, lack of visibility on global risk exposure and delays in fulfillment.
“We’re honoured to be recognised as a top technology provider for the fifth consecutive year — especially as the food and beverage industry continues to experience strains impacting the global supply chain,” said Steve Smith, U.S. Chief Operating Officer at Esker. “We recognise this is a time that businesses need to better connect their people and processes. Esker enables this with our comprehensive solutions, all while streamlining payments and cash flow to keep businesses running strong.”
Companies on this year’s 2020 FL100+ Top Software and Technology Providers list will be profiled in the November/December 2020 issue of Food Logistics, as well as online at https://www.foodlogistics.com/.
