PEZ Candy Improves Productivity and Decreases Lead Times with Ross Inventory Manager

Since 2005, PEZ Candy Inc. has relied on Aptean Ross ERP to monitor and manage their North American manufacturing processes and has remained active in adopting new Ross technologies to maintain their competitive edge in the marketplace. In 2017, PEZ was in the market for a much-needed upgrade to their mobile devices whose operating system was no longer supported. After the release of Ross Inventory Manager (RIM), PEZ quickly implemented the product within their facility, improving productivity, efficiency, and order fulfillment speeds.
