J. Polep Distribution Services, one of the top 15 convenience store distributors in the US, is upgrading its enterprise system and installing a new warehouse management system (WMS) at its Chicopee, MA headquarters.
It is using the Retalix Power Enterprise suite. The purchase is part of the convenience distributor’s expansion and technology investment initiative over the last few years—which has included strategic acquisitions, expanded product lines, and new programs and value-added services—to better meet the needs of convenience retailers.
“Service, dedication, commitment and customer satisfaction have been the driving force of our business for more than 100 years,” said Lori Polep, president of J. Polep Distribution Services. “To continue to deliver on that promise, we needed the complete supply chain solution that Retalix offers to enable our customers to grow and thrive in a highly dynamic and competitive environment.”
The project includes Retalix Power Enterprise to integrate and synchronize business and operational applications; and a new install of the Retalix Power Warehouse to manage all aspects of route-based, multi-stop distribution operations.
“Retalix is the market-leading software provider for convenience and foodservice distributors,” said Reuben Halevi, chief operating officer of Retalix USA. “Retalix Power Warehouse will enable J. Polep to synchronize its supply chain and business processes, reduce costs and support new growth opportunities.”
Polep serves more than 4,000 chain and independent retailers in the six New England states and New York.
