ROCKFORD, Illinois – For the second year in a row, Cleo, a worldwide leader in enterprise and cloud integration technology, has been named to Food Logistics’ 2017 FL100+ Top Software and Technology Providers List for its commitment to solving the emerging B2B and integration challenges in the food and beverage logistics industry.
The food and beverage industry is constantly evolving its legacy systems and applications to cloud-first scenarios, and Cleo provides advanced B2B integration technology to meet such digital transformation challenges impacting these organizations. The Cleo Integration Suite, the company’s flagship platform, delivers the critical EDI and data exchange capabilities required by leading food logistics and supply chain organizations.
“Having a single-platform B2B integration solution that can integrate our applications and complex supply chain, expedite partner onboarding, and deliver more control over our EDI workflows has been critical for Trinidad Benham,” said Tim Hagen, director of IT for Trinidad Benham Corp., a food service merchandising, packaging, trading, and distribution company based in Denver. “Cleo delivers a modern EDI solution that improves the responsiveness and service that we can provide to our customers.”
KeHE Distributors, a specialty, fresh, and natural and organic foods distributor headquartered near Chicago, recently upgraded to Cleo’s enterprise B2B solution to streamline communications among trading partners and expand its data protection capabilities.
“In a few short days, we were up and running and received excellent support from Cleo’s technical team during installation,” said Carl Snyder, manager of IT customer initiatives for KeHE. “We look forward to migrating all our communication traffic to the Cleo platform to meet our customers’ ever-increasing security needs.”
While data exchange demands vary from company to company, particularly those serving the supply chain, it’s the extensibility of Cleo technology that enables these successful business outcomes.
“Cleo is once again thrilled to be recognized as a preferred technology vendor for food and beverage logistics organizations,” said Mahesh Rajasekharan, Ph.D., CEO of Cleo. “Cleo’s solutions foundationally deliver the B2B integration capabilities core to food logistics, but it’s the ability to integrate those processes with the enterprise’s core ERP, WMS, TMS, and cloud applications that fuel Cleo’s widespread adoption in this industry and beyond. This complete and flexible integration strategy ultimately delivers the measurable business value that enables our customers to realize their full potential.”
