SILVERWATER, Australia -- Metcash Trading, an Australian wholesaler and retailer operating in the food and consumer goods categories, is deploying a new technology solution to consolidate its core information systems into a single integrated platform.
The company is using Dallas-based Retalix Power Enterprise, an enterprise-wide software solution developed to provide the wholesale distribution industry with a single, synchronized solution for total business management, optimizing all key departments within the organization.
"Our investment in the Retalix technology will enable us to consolidate our core information systems and provide the agility required to service current and future trading partner demands," said Bernard Hale, c.i.o. of Metcash Trading. "This was a very large, complex, and difficult thing to pull off. To have done so with such success and to have transitioned so seamlessly with our first site is comforting, and instills me with confidence that our rollout going forward will continue to be a great success story for Metcash."
The implementation of Power Enterprise throughout Metcash's three business units -- Australian Liquor Marketers, IGA Distribution, and Campbells Cash & Carry -- is expected to be completed mid-2008. Campbells Cash & Carry stores also use the Retalix StoreLine Point of Sale solution.
In addition to its wholesale operations, Metcash Trading operates more than 110 retail stores, and has an annual revenue last year of $7.3 (USD).
