HighJump Software, a global provider of supply chain management software, announced today that the cloud-based HighJump RouteCenter On-Demand (RCOD) solution has achieved certification status from the 2012-2013 Anheuser-Busch ISV/RAS program, becoming the largest of the three independent software vendors in the world to have achieved this certification.
HighJump RCOD serves as the backbone of a company’s direct store delivery operations by managing routes, hand-held devices, customers’ and drivers’ schedules.
For independent Anheuser-Busch InBev (ABI) distributors, this certification demonstrates that HighJump RCOD has met the highest requirements from ABI in terms of security, functionality, ability for streamlined integration with ABI products and systems, as well as additional technical requirements such as cloud technology, application infrastructure and customer service. The certification also required HighJump RCOD to have received SOC (service organization controls) certification by the American Institute of CPAs that validates its security, availability, processing integrity and confidentiality.
“Not only does this certification independently confirm that our solution meets and exceeds key functionalities for the beverage industry, but it further solidifies our commitment to the market and specifically to our Anheuser-Busch wholesale customers,” said Amy Stelling, senior vice president and general manager, DSD solutions group, HighJump Software. “With HighJump RouteCenter On-Demand, our customers can be confident that they have a solution that meets the highest standards, as well as that HighJump Software will continue to lead and support this ever-changing industry and to closely partner with ABI.”
This certification is a continuation of the long-standing partnership between HighJump Software and ABI. In 2010, Anheuser-Busch InBev named HighJump Software’s on-premise solution, RouteCenter, as a Level 1 ISV-Strategic Partner, the highest level of compliance and is earned by supporting all of the leading practices for beer sales and distribution as identified by ABI. In addition, HighJump Software’s market-leading warehouse management system has been implemented at Anheuser-Busch InBev sites around the world.
