1 minute reading time

After a successful implementation of Data Shelter in June 2011, Blue Diamond Growers decided to extend their use of the Outperform software to include Replenishment planning and Master Scheduling. Once complete in April 2012, Blue Diamond's Sales and Operations Planning process will be run with REMIRA software. OUTPERFORM Planning will be tightly integrated with the Adage ® ERP system through its Data Shelter functionality.
