DigitaBusinesses across the food and drink sector are undertaking speedy digital transformation initiatives to support vital consumer supply chains. We’ve been working closely with a range of food and drink wholesalers and foodservice companies to help them better utilise their ecommerce platforms so they can maintain business levels and protect their profits. Some initiatives we have helped implement include:

Direct-to-Consumer (D2C) ecommerce
Direct-to-consumer ecommerce is not a new concept for the wholesale industry as a means for competitive advantage and growth. However, it is now more essential than ever as the UK continues with the lockdown. Opening your online sales channels to the general public will help your business maintain sales and also offer alternative sources of supply.

Our Oporteo platform is a scalable and agile B2B ecommerce platform specially designed to give wholesale distributors and foodservice businesses a packaged and cost-effective ecommerce solution. It encompasses industry functionality and a user-friendly interface to give customers a streamlined and responsive experience, including all the necessary business logic, pricing matrices and functionality you need to sell to B2B and B2C customers.

Click and Collect for commercial and public use
When many supermarkets and local food shops are struggling to keep shelves stocked, a click and collect service will provide welcome relief for people trying to help their local communities access cupboard and freezer essentials, as many products can be sold in bulk. Oporteo includes ‘Click and Collect’ functionality to help businesses like you provide more flexible delivery options to customers. Our customer, T.Quality, is already using this to allow consumers to place orders online and collect them at a time and depot that is convenient to them.

Van Sales to enable retail sales from mobile stock
Utilise your delivery service as a mobile sales opportunity by bringing your products to key locations and selling direct to business and consumers through mobile point of sale. We can provide your field sales staff with the tools that will enable them to answer stock queries and take orders and payments on the spot.

White label ecommerce systems for your customers
It’s not just you that can benefit from ecommerce opportunities at the moment. You can also ensure your retail and foodservice customers can generate revenue through “white label” ecommerce solution, providing them with their own online presence, product catalogues and fulfilment by you, their supplier. Oporteo is a complete ecommerce platform that will give you and your customers everything needed to sell successfully online. When time is of the essence, we can offer Oporteo as an ‘out of the box’ package where you and your customers can use the existing templates which are already built in.
