This move is a critical step in its strategic plan to expand the provision of supply chain services as a “one-stop shop” for its clients. The software changes will bring greater systems capabilities and efficiencies to the operation.

Core e-business demonstrated fitness for and ease of use during our vendor selection process? said George R. Howard, MBA, PMP, Grimes? Technology Coordinator and project manager for this software implementation. Core is comprised of a very professional group of people with passion for not only the product but also the service they provide; they are perhaps the best software vendor I have had the pleasure of working with in the last 12 years?, he also commented. ?Their business partnering approach sets them apart from the other software vendors and to date, they have delivered what they promised

In addition to robust management capabilities the implementation is also expected to greatly expand the information management services that the company offers its clients. ?By coupling our in-house expertise with software and services offered by Core e-business and others, we will have the opportunity to not only improve our own operations but also, and perhaps more importantly, consolidate the information hosted on multiple warehouse management systems, into a single database, resulting in a system with a standardized look and feel for our clients across their supply chain.? said Michael O?Leary, President of TGC. Once deployed, this service will be a unique information management resource, both in terms of functionality and affordability.
The implementation is expected to take between sixty and ninety days followed by thirty days of testing. Clients can expect increased access to online reports, order entry, inventory visibility, event notification, and real time information updates.

The Grimes Companies operates both public and contract warehouses in Florida and Maryland, as well as providing transportation and packaging services to its clients. A subsidiary of The Grimes Companies, FileSafe, Inc., offers document storage services to businesses in Northeast Florida.
