Downers Grove, IL – In an ongoing effort to advance productivity and increase efficiency through real-time inventory management, ABB CONCISE has successfully implemented Upp Technology's award-winning irms|WM™ Warehouse Management software solution in their third warehouse operation.

"Working with Upp to help organize our business has provided ABB CONCISE with the full-range feature functionality we desired in working with a third party supplier," said Jeff Rinkus, vice president of Supply Chain, ABB CONCISE. "We are confident entrusting this portion of our business to Upp because of their proven track record and decades of experience in warehouse management, distribution and fulfillment for businesses similar to ours."

Since integrating irms|WM into its process several months ago, ABB CONCISE has reported increased output in its inventory management practice. IRMS' stock rotation, lot control and FEFO order allocation ensure accurate fulfillment and elimination of aged stock. And the FDA 21 CFR Part 11 validated transaction trail provides the comprehensive, who did what, when and where to keep detailed traceability required with the high-volume, high velocity pace of ABB CONCISE operations. IRMS is one of the only data management systems that is compatible with the strict medical and healthcare requirements put in place by the FDA.

"We are proud to service such great customers as ABB CONCISE. Their commitment to process improvement and service level to their customers is an inspiration for all of us," said Carl Brewer, president of Upp Technology's software division. "We look forward to a long relationship".
