Leading Business Publication Releases 2013 List of Software and Technology Providers

FAIRFAX, Va. – Dec. 17, 2013 – InfinityQS International, Inc., the global authority on real-time quality and Manufacturing Intelligence, today announced it has been named for the third consecutive year to the Food Logistics’ FL100, an annual list of software and technology providers for the food and beverage industry. This recognition acknowledges InfinityQS for excellence in creating the tools and technology necessary to not only improve quality on the plant floor, but also to uncover Manufacturing Intelligence that will decrease costs and help executives make more strategic business decisions.

For the past decade, the editors of Food Logistics have identified software and technology providers that help food and beverage manufacturers, foodservice distributors, and grocery retailers attain their business goals. The FL100 is comprised of software providers as well as equipment and technology companies whose products and services play a significant role in food and beverage supply chains.

“The groundswell of interest in software and technology tools affirms the value associated with investing in solutions that boost visibility in the food and beverage supply chain, enhance collaboration, improve regulatory compliance and support sustainability goals,” remarks Lara L. Sowinski, editor-in-chief of Food Logistics. “New technology-related products and services combined with better affordability are leveling the playing field for a variety of food related companies, while supporting expansion of the cold chain into developed and emerging markets alike.”

Michael A. Lyle, president and CEO, InfinityQS, said, “InfinityQS is working with the leading food and beverage organizations to bolster their HACCP, SSOP and traceability systems in preparation for the Food Safety Modernization Act. By being proactive about transforming large amounts of quality data into actionable intelligence, these companies are actually going beyond the regulatory requirements to drive operational efficiency improvements that ultimately lead to gains in profitability.”

InfinityQS ProFicient Manufacturing Intelligence Hub, powered by a statistical process control (SPC) engine, provides manufacturers with the tools needed to unlock the full potential of quality data. Data analysis tools such as root cause analysis, box and whisker charts, and Pareto charts help to uncover Manufacturing Intelligence while the latest version of the software, ProFicient 5.1, allows manufacturers to utilize already collected quality data to calculate and analyze Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) to improve machine efficiencies.

After receiving applications from end users and software and technology providers, the editorial staff reviewed over 155 submissions to compile this year’s list. Companies who earned a spot on the FL100 list are featured in the November/December 2013 issue of Food Logistics, as well as online at
