Jenks Hatches Success With EDI for Quickbooks [Case Study]

by | May 8, 2018 | Suppliers, TeamSPS

As a fourth-generation operation, Jenks Hatchery is a leader in the hatchery industry. Each spring they ship more than 9,000 boxes of chicks to Tractor Supply stores across the United States. Jenks is also a direct-to-farm supplier of chicks, in addition to their robust e-commerce business with a 35 percent growth rate.

In 2017, the hatchery experienced explosive growth as its primary retail customer, Tractor Supply, tripled the number of purchase orders for the upcoming season at the same time as its online sales were picking up. Jenks needed to double their production space and automate their EDI to scale in order to support this growth.

After deploying SPS Commerce Fulfillment EDI for QuickBooks, the hatchery was able to easily keep up with the increased demand across its multiple sales channels during its busy season without adding staff.
