Vicinity’s software solution selected for leading manufacturer of baking powder.

Marietta, GA, June 01, 2008 --( Vicinity Manufacturing TM announces today that Clabber Girl© Corporation will implement the Vicinity formula manufacturing software system to streamline daily operations at its headquarters in Terre Haute, Indiana.

The leading manufacturer of baking power in the nation, Clabber Girl has selected the Vicinity solution to fill a gap in integrating sales orders, forecasts, scheduling, purchasing and production. Clabber Girl intends to simplify the recording of existing quality control results, enhance cost analysis to include labor and overhead, and create a centralized schedule with integration to inventory, sales and purchasing. Vicinity replaces a discrete manufacturing solution to seamlessly link Clabber Girl’s business, laboratory, and production processes.

By selecting Vicinity Manufacturing, Clabber Girl will incorporate its entire manufacturing and business processes into one simple solution. Examples of the key integration features in Vicinity include formula management, automated lot control, formula scheduling, Certificates of Analysis, country of origin disclosure, and batch yields by formula, quality control tracking, and batch ticket processing. The Vicinity solution together with Microsoft Dynamics TM GP financial system is the perfect recipe for Clabber Girl’s continued success.

“Before Vicinity, many of our employees had to find ways to accommodate the software to perform everyday tasks costing us both time and money.” says Jamey Kirsch, Executive Director of IT for Clabber Girl. “But that is changing now with our selection of Vicinity Manufacturing. The process manufacturing functions of Vicinity, together with the financial tools of Microsoft Dynamics GP, is a perfect union for Clabber Girl. With the selection of Vicinity we anticipate an increase in reporting productivity, great enhancements in inventory management, and better analysis of production yields. We are eagerly anticipating the implementation of this software and look forward to a long relationship with Vicinity Manufacturing!”
