Meet Andy. As a true professional and dedicated pro, it’s easy to find him working hard day in and day out for the company. Do you really know who he is and what he has to offer? We’ve asked him a few key questions to get his insight into his position here as well as what his views and goals for our clients are. Though he’s a man of few words, Andy has much to share with us.

Algorithm Implements WiSys with a Pet Foods Producer to Increase Inventory Accuracy, Standardize and Automate Processes, and Increase Production Output
CHALLENGES BEFORE WISYS
Before WiSys was implemented, this pet food producer's warehouse was "a messy array of product and inventory everywhere." They were not using bins and lots for inventory traceability which led them to rely on tribal knowledge.
We love WiSys. We believe that WiSys, founded by Bruce Hollinger, is the best thing to happen to Macola since Bruce founded Macola.
We have used WiSys to make Macola viable for the last decade plus. Not just as a WMS product, but as a platform for adapting Macola to business needs when Macola wasn’t able or capable to meet customer demand. The Agility framework made Macola practically open source.
That’s right, even today, there are companies still new to the Internet, or at least new to figuring out what’s needed to get orders from their website into their Macola Order Entry system. And the reality is, there isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution, but the main considerations for putting your plan together are similar across the board: Customers, Inventory, and Orders.
