Food Connex Helps Small Local Fish Market with a HUGE Reputation Deliver Profits.
July 6, 2021 -- CAI Software, LLC today announced that Puerto Plata Seafood Market of Brooklyn, New York is using the Food Connex ERP software to improve the accuracy of its inventory and profitability.
The company had found that their manual, entirely paper-based method of purchasing product at the fish market and picking inventory from the cooler was leading to discrepancies in inventory counts and wrong customer shipments. Often, a different or more expensive product would ship to a customer, other times a less expensive product. Either way, the company was often unsure of their actual costs and margins.
Soribel Paulino of Puerto Plata said, "Our wholesale business can be extremely hectic at times and mis-picks were occurring as trucks were loaded and sent out often on very short notice."
“We needed a more efficient system to keep track of our inventory and also our loss and profit,” Paulino said. "Food Connex was highly recommended to us by a good friend of ours because of its efficiency to help organize our inventory; we were in much need of a higher quality system. After seeing how easily we could transition to Food Connex, we knew we had found a great solution.” In addition, the ability to accurately track product helps identify who had purchased product.

With Food Connex we’re able to do just that and with its efficiency it helped and is still helping us work better and faster. We would definitely recommend this system to anyone.”
