Eby-Brown Rolls Out New Store Management Tool
NAPERVILLE, Ill. — Eby-Brown Co. LLC has launched its new mobile application, Eby Source Point 360 (ESP 360). It is designed to make store management and ordering faster, easier and more convenient.
The mobile app offers an intuitive user interface accessed across an omnichannel environment that provides value-based information and allows users to have inventory metrics and analytics at their fingertips, the company said.
"Telxons and smart handhelds are tools of the past. Mobile solutions are the tools of the future. Eby-Brown is committed to providing our customers technology solutions that give them an advantage in the marketplace. The release of ESP 360 is another example of this commitment," stated Thomas Wake, co-president of Eby-Brown. "ESP 360 allows our customers to access information at any place, anytime. Our goal is to empower our customers through an easy to use application that will help them become more accurate and efficient. ESP 360 transforms the ordering process by putting crucial data at the retailer's fingertips and giving them the tools they need to make informed decisions quickly and easily."
The app has received "overwhelmingly positive" feedback on the value of the ordering analytics that allow customers to research average order quantities by item and manage inventory by previewing upcoming promotional items scheduled for delivery.
"As ESP 360 continues to evolve, it will provide customers the foundation for an enhanced interaction with not only Eby-Brown, but other industry partners as well," Wake said.
Further commitments to strengthen this initiative will include suggested orders to retailers based on their order history. Additionally, ESP 360 will provide the ability to check in orders, view estimated delivery times and order products directly from Eby-Brown publications.
ESP 360 will initially be available for download on iPads from the App Store. More information is available at www.Eby-Brown.com/ESP360.
