Uesugi Farms was in the market for a soltuion that could not only fit all of their Grower/Packer needs but as well something that would fit into their specific company operations. They turned to Crescent for this soltuion and were surprised with what they found.
Uesugi Farms, Inc. is a major grower/packer/shipper of bell peppers, chili peppers, Napa cabbage, bok choy, strawberries and pumpkins. Uesugi farms ranges just under 5,000 acres. Joe Aiello, and his former partner, Dennis Humphreys, bought the firm, which was originally founded in the 1950s by George Uesugi, a farmer in Morgan Hill, CA, in April 1979 and have built it into the well-known business it is today.
As the company continued to grow, the manual procedures for managing grower operations became a bottleneck and prevented them from being able to efficiently perform company operations like tracking inventory from Field to Fork, tracking, forecasting and moving inventory in real time, and maintaining a simple point of entry within the companywide ERP system.
