IT TAILORED TO YOU

Nebraskaland, the largest distributor of meats and processed foods in the NYC metro area, came to mindSHIFT because they faced consistent disruptions and malfunctions with their current IT structure. With critical overnight shifts and more than 50 employees using sophisticated technology to pick and pack different products to be delivered early the next morning. If that technology isn’t working, then Nebraskaland is at standstill. Enter mindSHIFT.

We were able to offload their costly hardware and customize their software, implementing cloud technologies wherever viable to optimize performance and increase overall efficiency from the ground up, from point of purchase to delivering the product.

“The mindSHIFT technicians were on the dock and in the freezer with us, analyzing what caused our problem and got it fixed,” said Romanoff. “They really came through for us.”

“Our mobile proof-of-delivery is a big advantage for us,” said Romanoff. “Our IT infrastructure gives us so many benefits, from helping us deliver a high quality product to controlling output and coordinating the time we deliver—and how fast we deliver—our  products.”
