The Flamingo Makes New Friends


As Wild Friends Foods Selects Adesso’s TPM System & Services

Rolling Meadows, IL. October 10, 2018 – Adesso is excited to add our new friends, Wild Friends Foods of Portland, OR, to the TPE Community. Wild Friends is an innovative, clean label plant protein brand, specializing in non-GMO nut and seed butters and nut butter based breakfast items, including their first-to-market Nut Butter Oats.

“Adesso came recommended to us through another natural foods business that has benefited from Adesso’s pre-built QuickBooks interfaces, and we are excited to get started,” said Keeley Tillotson, Co-Founder and CEO at Wild Friends Foods. “Managing our trade spending in an easy-to-use system will enable us to quickly know our spend by customer and to more effectively match up and clear our manufacturer chargebacks.”
“Wild Friends Foods is among many small to midsize CPG manufacturers who can benefit from having a TPM solution early on,” said Fred Schroeder, President & CEO at Adesso Solutions. He continued, “Having a TPM system gives them visibility and better control of their spending and deduction reconciliation, and we are proud to be selected as the TPM Solution partner for Wild Friends Foods.”

Adesso’s Client Community ‘Migrates’ to the East Coast With the Flamingo TPM System "Key West" Release

Rolling Meadows, IL. May 31, 2018 – Adesso Solutions announced today the latest Flamingo release, and the Trade Promotion Management (TPM) System’s first migration to the east coast with this release being… Key West!

After a series of releases in the last 3 years, creatively named for west coast beaches, major new client growth and significant technology upgrades created the need for a foundation to move forward. Where better to relax than Key West! 

This new foundation includes automated QuickBooks setups, a Software as a Service (SaaS) model for Flamingo and other new improvements. It is also a springboard to take advantage of the improved Offline Planner and Smart Dashboards – both being released prior to the summer season and in time for 2019 retailer planning – for existing and soon to be clients alike. As always, Key West’s functionality is rooted in client recommendations, broader client confirmation and Adesso’s deep industry experience. Over 60% of this added functionality improves ‘ease of use’ for field sales & broker partners, enhancing Flamingo’s position as the easiest to use TPM system on the market.

“The span of the Key West release is across technology, our Flamingo TPM System, as well as our extended services,” said Rich Jones, Executive Vice President of Technology at Adesso Solutions. “Upgrading to Key West also provides the basis to take advantage of other Adesso TPE solutions going forward and has been integral to  our long term strategy.”

“We are excited to get clients on the Key West release as quickly as possible.” Said Keith Peers, Senior Vice President of Operations at Adesso. “Invitations for registration to Key West Release webinars and our new, expanded training service will be going out directly to our client community, as well as their broker partners, to ensure that all users are trained and ready for the new functionality.”
