Stephens Distributing Upgrades to HighJump RouteCenter On Demand

Anheuser-Busch distributor updates to HighJump’s Route Accounting System (RAS) to increase accuracy, speed and reliability

Minneapolis—May 1, 2012— Supply chain management software provider HighJump Software now provides its RouteCenter On-Demand solution to Stephens Distributing to enable the distributor to manage its direct store delivery operations.

Stephens Distributing needed a new route accounting system (RAS) to replace its legacy solution with a more user-friendly platform. After evaluating available options for route accounting systems, the company selected HighJump RouteCenter On-Demand not only based on the company’s strong relationship with HighJump Software but on the solution’s hosted option and availability of HighJump’s inventory management and load management software.

“We love our HighJump Support people,” said Susan Reyes, Controller, Stephens Distributing. “Our long relationship with HighJump played a big role in our selection of our new route accounting system. The hosted option for HighJump RouteCenter also enticed us because it means improved reliability, less cost and administration time and maintenance performed by HighJump experts.”

HighJump RouteCenter provides sales order management, inventory management, route planning, delivery, driver reconciliation and financial accounting. The system also provides taxation and regulatory reporting to help manage the complex, highly regulated nature of alcohol sales. Additionally, HighJump RouteCenter allows beverage distributors to perform mobile e-commerce transactions with retailers and supplier organizations.

“We’re pleased to continue our long relationship with Stephens Distributing as they upgrade to our on-demand route accounting system for beer distributors,” said Russell Fleischer, Chief Executive Officer, HighJump Software. “HighJump is committed to developing an industry-leading direct store delivery software suite and maintaining our long-standing customer relationships. We look forward to many more years partnering with Stephens Distributing as they evolve their business.”
