SYDNEY (April 30, 2014) – Australian success story, Patties Foods Limited (ASX: PFL), the manufacturer, supplier and marketer of iconic frozen savoury and dessert brands, has selected StayinFront EdgeCG® as itsmobile, SaaS-based sales force automation solution.

Specifically designed for the consumer goods industry, StayinFront EdgeCG will help Patties’ 110 representatives throughout Australia drive best practice retail execution strategies across its high quality portfolio that includes Four’N Twenty, Patties, Herbert Adams, Nanna’s, Creative Gourmet and Chefs Pride.

StayinFront EdgeCG’s cloud environment will allow the company to quickly and cost effectively roll out the software on the latest touch-screen tablets using StayinFront TouchCG®.
