For over 40 years, AlimPlus has distinguished itself in western Quebec’s food distribution industry. This company called upon Vortex Solution’s expertise to implement a B2B platform allowing its 3,000 customers to place their order online. Primarily involved in the restaurant, grocery store and institutional sectors, AlimPlus’ clients should be able to access the system around the clock, regardless of the browser they use.
In addition to its informative sections, the responsive website that Vortex Solution developed features a catalog of 8,000 products that can be browsed with a search engine. Along with AlimPlus’s IT team, Vortex Solution put up a data synchronization system (for orders, clients, inventory, etc.) operating through an FTP file exchange process between the web platform and the internal system (mainframe).
Other special features for AlimPlus’ website were implemented, including:
- The definition of preferential prices for some clients
- Product purchase available by unit or by case
- Quick order form to speed order taking by entering only product codes and quantity
- A “My Account” section allowing clients to view their order history and account statement online
