Downers Grove, IL – Upp Technology announces a new service agreement with ABB CONCISE, one of the nation's leading distributors of optical products. In a recent move to address growing demands for a contemporary organizational warehouse system, ABB CONCISE has employed Upp Technology's award-winning IRMS software solution to advance productivity and increase efficiency through real-time inventory management.

"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 into its process two months ago, ABB CONCISE has already reported increased output in its inventory management practice.

irms|WM™ Warehouse Management fully supports stock rotation and lot control, ensuring each item is documented through expiration, manufacturing or receipt dates, as well as shipping thresholds, for a complete chain of custody, including a transaction audit trail validated to U.S. FDA 21 CFR Part 11 for electronic records and signatures. 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.

"While traditional service models for distribution and inventory management are highly labor-intensive, IRMS provides total visibility into the order process for optimal workflow," said Carl Brewer, president of Upp Technology's software division. "Our personalized solution for ABB CONCISE promises complete compatibility, enabling warehouse managers to analyze even thousands of orders on many levels in just seconds."
