RESCO Recognized for Fulfillment Excellence by MFSA
ALEXANDRIA, VA—Oct. 25, 2010—RESCO, based in Hudson, WI, was recently awarded MFSA Fulfillment Accreditation, raising the number of accredited companies to 11 nationwide. Companies must complete a comprehensive application seeking documentation in 11 critical general operational areas and be subject to an audit of their operations in 14 technical and operational areas, such as receiving, put-away, order picking, order packing, hand assembly, returns, reporting, etc.
Overall, the accreditation program has 168 criteria to examine. Applicants must pass all the required elements (55) and 75% of the supplemental elements (113).
Eric Strand, RESCO CEO, stated, “We sought accreditation from MFSA because we wanted to validate that our processes and procedures are among the best available for companies that we do business with and for those that are yet to do business with us. It made sense to turn to the industry experts at MFSA to give us that third party validation. I am proud to receive this accreditation from MFSA and proud of the RESCO employees who keep doing an outstanding job for our clients.”
In April 2007, the Mailing & Fulfillment Service Association unveiled the industry’s first fulfillment accreditation program after years of research and development. The purpose behind this program is to enable fulfillment operators to be recognized for their documented commitment to fulfillment, to help other fulfillment operators to improve their operations, and to show customers which companies are the “cream of the crop.”
