RALEIGH, N.C. (December 16, 2020) – Open Sky Group, global specialists in WMS, Labor and TMS software implementations and upgrades, is pleased to announce its recognition by Food Logistics as a 2020 FL100+ Top Software and Technology Provider, for the sixth time in a row.

Food Logistics is the only publication exclusively dedicated to covering the movement of product through the global food supply chain. Their annual FL100+ Top Software and Technology Providers list honors leading software and technology providers that ensure a safe, efficient and reliable global food and beverage supply chain.

“We are not surprised to see their name on the list again,” said Kevin Benke, IT manager, Perfetti Van Melle North America. “Open Sky Group consistently delivers quality service, which, over the years, has helped us to remain at the top of our game in today’s increasingly challenging and competitive food and beverage industry.”

As one of the first WMS-accredited implementation partners and resellers of Blue Yonder solutions, Open Sky Group applies agile principles and processes to deliver rapid supply chain software implementations, helping clients experience a faster return on investment.

“We are very honored to be named,” said Open Sky Group’s vice president, client services, Jason Yantiss. “When you see some of the other names on the listing, it can be both humbling and motivating to be included yet again. The templatized, ‘no modifications’ approach we’ve taken to implementations is not only helping to keep our clients’ costs down, it’s extending the useable life of their solution, ensuring warranties remain intact and future upgrades can be applied without issue.”

Each year, Food Logistics showcases software and technology companies that are leading the food and beverage industry in innovations; the FL100+ is now in its 16th year.
