Dole Packaged Foods, a leading producer and marketer of highC -  Dole.jpg-quality foods, has deployed the procurementFreedomTM suite of mobile apps for a solution to mobile-enable and speed their SAP purchase order and approval process. Prior to implementing procurementFreedom, executives could only access SAP purchase orders through desktop and laptops, resulting in a long wait time for PO approvals and impacting operations and productivity. The new procurementFreedom app sends mobile notification and PO details to executives who can then review and take immediate action.

"Now, our busy executives can approve or reject PO's from any mobile device, helping us speed the entire purchasing process and improve productivity," said Steve Harvey, Senior Director of IT at Dole Packaged Foods.

In addition to providing immediate approvals of PO's, procurementFreedom provides a simple, intuitive user interface that enhances the entire procurement workflow process by giving users the ability to conduct everyday tasks in SAP. The new system was deployed in a matter of weeks, providing a quick, positive and almost immediate impact to the company's business operations.

"We're excited to see enterprise mobility paying off in a big way for our customers," commented Vaidy Iyer, appsFreedom Founder and CEO. "With just a couple of weeks for deployment of our pre-built app bundles, and an extremely simple interface design, users are highly productive almost immediately. We hear loud and clear this has a big impact on their ability to keep projects moving forward faster."
