RESCO receives MFSA national accreditation
Hudson, WI – February 2011 RESCO, of Hudson was recently awarded the Mailing and Fulfillment Services Association Fulfillment Accreditation becoming only the 11th MFSA Fulfillment Accredited Company in the United States.
“We sought accreditation from MFSA because we wanted to validate our processes and procedures as amongst the best available for companies we do business with and for those yet to do business with us,” said CEO Eric Strand. “It made sense to turn to the industry experts at MFSA giving us that third party validation. I am honored to receive this accreditation and proud of the RESCO employees who continue to do an outstanding job for our clients.”
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.” Accredited 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, and 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 percent of the supplemental elements (113).
