Food Logistics Interviews John Clark of Viastore Systems Regarding Trends in Food Automation Technology


Grand Rapids, MI -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/07/2016 -- Special coverage about Software & Technology is the focus of the current issue of Food Logistics. The editors contacted over a dozen industry executives at companies that play a significant role in the food and beverage supply chain.

John Clark, head of viastore Systems Marketing and Business Development shared in the article, "With the advent of 'There's an app for that,' controlling cold storage AS/RS via a tablet device makes sense," One of viastore Systems customers, Americold, uses this at their Indianapolis facility. Users can monitor the system—and more accurately, monitor by exception. They do not need to see what is working, but more so see where issues might occur. This saves on travel time throughout the facility as adjustments can be made within the facility and also from a control area outside the cold storage area."

The metric of improved throughput, productivity, and lean manufacturing has uniquely positioned viastore Systems as a best practice technology systems solutions provider for the Food & Beverage industries.

Clark will share more about these processes and practices at MODEX 2016 next month.
