East Granby, CT -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/16/2014 -- Pcdata USA, a global logistics systems leader for supply chain automation, is featured in the current issue of Baking Business.com, a Sosland Publication. The article, entitled, “Counting the Costs,” by Charlotte Atchley, described how some in the baking industry have resisted automation and others have not. Marc Braun, president of Pcdata USA, was quoted in the article and commented, “Bakers don’t necessarily see that they have a real problem. They’ve done it this way forever, and it kind of works.”
Braun explained that bakers are hesitant to automate their warehouse organization because they do not believe a software can make those on-the-spot decisions. Braun commented, “There’s disbelief to a degree that the software can make all these complex decisions they deal with on a day-to-day basis because an order change, they over-produced or under-produced or a bad weather system came through. It’s hard to believe software can deal with all of those exceptions efficiently, but that has been the heart of the software for 25 years.”
