Richmond, BC -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/30/2013 -- Steve Burton, founder of Burton Software Inc., was the featured guest on the Manufacturing Revival Radio this week. The show was hosted by Todd Schnick and Todd Youngblood who interviewed the food safety leader. Burton Software Inc., (http://www.BurtonSoftware.com) which offers the first affordable cloud-based solution to improve the safety of the world's food supply.
Burton commented on how Icicle became the solution for many small and medium food manufacturers and processors using HACCP standard, “The issue is that 90% of the market is run by smaller companies that does not have the resources to develop their own major enterprise custom software solutions. So we are talking about companies doing less than $200 Million annually which is really small and medium-sized companies. When it came to companies taking a quarter of a million dollars out of their pocket to purchase an enterprise application it was not economically viable for them, so they fell back on the tools they had available which included manual tools, paper binders, Excel spreadsheets, and Word documents.”
