Pronto Software, Australia’s most successful domestic ERP provider, has inked a deal with Statewide Independent Wholesalers Limited (SIW), Tasmania’s largest grocery wholesaler, to implement PRONTO-Xi across its Cash N Carry Foodservice division.
One of the island state’s largest employers, SIW has around 350 staff and annual turnover of over $400 million.
With headquarters in Launceston, SIW has two distribution centres and three Cash N Carry Foodservice outlets.
Its business model is unique, with 60 per cent owned by Woolworths and 40 per cent owned by independent retailers — the only operation in Australia where Woolworths and independents effectively work together.
“We were looking for an integrated, scalable solution that would meet our evolving business needs, support our growth and enable us to provide an even better service to our Cash N Carry and Foodservice customers.”
“Pronto will provide greater visibility of financial, stock and customer information in one integrated system,” he says.
“We’ll also be able to reduce picking errors in the warehouse and therefore improve the accuracy of orders.”
