RedPrairie, a consumer-driven optimization company, has announced that Peet’s Coffee & Tea has selected RedPrairie’s Site Operations system.
According to RedPrairie, Peet’s has used the full range of capabilities featured in the application to significantly reduce wasted product through improved forecasting, inventory management, and auto-ordering.
RedPrairie Site Operations offers this ability by managing a variety of functions associated with food and beverage service with built-in features to provide flexibility and visibility.
