Central Grocers is a leading wholesaler grocer in the Chicago area. It services more than 400 independent grocers and posts sales of $2 billion per year.
When Central Grocers acquired Dearborn Wholesale Grocers it realized it needed to improve its online resources to match the kinds of services Dearborn customers were used to. It also needed to upgrade its back office operations to eliminate data entry redundancies and improve response times.
Former Dearborn employees Fenton Doolin and John Bukauskas joined Central Grocers as System Analysts and quickly showed how ASNA Visual RPG for .NET could be used to quickly and affordably create a contemporary, comprehensive online portal for both Central Grocers’ back office and its customers.
Central Grocers’ customers create their own item movement queries. This streamlines the rebate manufacture process while eliminating keypunch efforts internally. The ASNA based solution provides this service and many others, including the First Time Buy application. This assists Central Grocers’ with the objective to enhance the retailers experience with Central Grocers as their grocery supplier.
