Grande Cheese Completes Transition to DSI’s Producer Payroll and Procurement Systems

ELKHORN, WI – September, 2016 – One of the country’s premier cheesemakers, Grande Cheese Company, has selected Data Specialists, Inc.’s (DSI) payroll and procurement systems. DSI was selected among various other procurement systems during a search that included reviewing the functions of their milk payroll, receiving systems, lab, milk billing, and a producer web portal.

“Grande was looking for a system that would continually grow with technology changes and provide additional functionality.  The DSI system provides this growth.  The staff is easy to work with and knows the dairy industry.”

– Nancy Chikowski, F & A Milk Marketing Manager

Grande Cheese has consistently grown over their 75 year history by providing a superior quality cheese product to independent pizza parlors, restaurants, and other food service members throughout the country. High quality dairies in the Midwest supply their seven processing facilities which produce a variety of cheese products as well as whey powdered products. Dedication to their craft is exactly what you’d expect from a company whose name comes from the Italian word “Greatness.”

“We were excited about the prospect of working together with the Grande Cheese staff. They are a world class organization with a clear vision and the right people in place to continue their impressive growth. We look forward to working with them for years to come.”

– Ryan Mertes, President DSI
