MobileDemand TabletPC Reduces Large Retail Chain's Cost Of Goods SoldSource: MobileDemand
Affiliated Foods Midwest (AFM), a cooperative owned entirely by independent grocers, made a simple computer switch in its stores recently that led to a large and very real financial payoff.
As a cooperative based in Norfolk, Neb., more than 850 AFM member stores across 12 Midwest states pool their resources to bring about efficiencies that are otherwise unobtainable.
Since its beginnings in 1931, AFM has grown into a powerful partner for independent retailers. As such, the cooperative provides members with quality goods and services that will help them compete, grow and profit.
So, when AFM executives saw an opportunity to help member stores streamline their order entry process and improve efficiency, they turned to MobileDemand, a rugged Tablet PC manufacturer based in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
