One Network's Demand Driven Transportation Solution Is Successfully Deployed by KIK Custom Products

    Leading Custom Manufacturer Completes First Phase of North American

    DALLAS, Sept. 11 /CNW/ -- One Network Enterprises, an innovator in
multi-enterprise business process solutions, today announced that KIK Custom
Products (KIK), one of North America's largest custom manufacturers of both
National Brand and Retailer Brand consumer products, has successfully deployed
One Network's Demand Driven Transportation solution.
    KIK will utilize One Network's Demand Driven Transportation solution to
manage inbound raw materials into their plants and outbound distribution to
their retailer customers.  The solution was initially deployed in Auburndale,
FL, Salem, VA, and Hampton, GA with future deployments scheduled for their
remaining locations.
    With the deployment of One Network, KIK intends to replace and
re-engineer their transportation management process and solutions.  "Over the
last few years we have grown rapidly through acquisitions and this has put
strains on our transportation processes and systems," stated Chet Barrows,
KIK's Director of Corporate Transportation.  "With One Network's Demand Driven
Transportation solution, we are standardizing and automating our inbound and
outbound transportation processes and creating collaborative workflows between
KIK, our vendors, customers, and carriers.  We are also vastly improving our
cost reporting abilities.  We hope to capitalize on One Network's leading
appointment scheduling capabilities to streamline our pickup and delivery
processes and improve our customer service visibility and responsiveness."
    With Del Monte's deployment earlier this year, KIK becomes the second
consumer products manufacturer to successfully deploy One Network's Demand
Driven Solutions over the last six months.  "With KIK and Del Monte and our
strong retail base we continue to prove a collaborative business process
between manufacturers and retailers is possible," stated Greg Brady, One
Network President and CEO.  "This collaboration sparks the missing link
between creating a truly demand driven supply chain."

    One Network Enterprises is a pioneer in multi-enterprise and multi-party
sense-and-respond solutions.  One Network operates industry-specific networks
and applications that are proven to deliver rapid results.  One Network's
solutions provide visibility, decision-support, execution and analytics across
multiple internal divisions and trading partners, while embracing existing IT
and B2B infrastructure, policies, and business processes.  The process and
data models required are fundamentally different from enterprise-centric
models and are powered by our unique many-to-many integrated Platform.
    In the supply chain execution space, One Network's solutions continuously
monitor demand, supply, and logistics signals and incrementally orchestrate
execution across the multi-party network to optimize customer experience.  The
proprietary demand sensing provides advance visibility and the multi-party
optimization provides the best customer service at the lowest total landed
cost.  This results in lower lead-times and very fast value networks with
tremendous benefits to all the partners.  We call this Demand-Driven.  These
capabilities are flexible and can be employed to power a subset or complete
end-to-end business process that can range from order management, inventory
management, distribution, logistics, manufacturing, to procurement in a
multi-party environment.

business processes simple and efficient.  One Network is one of the fastest
growing SaaS companies with more than 2,800 customers in the retail, consumer
