    Kansas Cold Storage hot on the Mac

    Kansas Cold Storage, which delivers perishable goods all over the country, needed a computer system that was fast, reliable, and easy to use. And for Chief Operating Officer Miles Jones, there was only one viable option. The Mac has turned things around for us, says Jones. We can operate more productively and reliably now, and we dont ever have to worry about downtime.

    Fast, flexible, and easy to use
    Jones found the perfect Mac-based inventory system for KCS, one that allows the company to stay in control and informed under the most stressful situations. Its a far cry from the default pen-and-paper system that Jones faced when he arrived at KCSand a quantum leap in cold storage organization. This system has turned things around for us, he says. We can operate more productively and reliably now, and we dont ever have to worry about downtime. When I arrived here, I was told that we would have to use PCs in any warehouse environment. Im glad that we proved everyone wrong. You can use Macs for anything.

    There was no real question in Jones mind about the choice of Macs. The company needed something fast, reliable, flexible, and easy to use. And for Jones, this meant the Mac. In 1937, they got the top architects of the day to design our warehouse, says Jones. So today, the Macs fit right intheyre the best-designed computers on the market.
