UNFI EDI Interface for CorTec™ and ChefTec® Software Users

EDI Functionality Creates Seamless Interface with Vendor's Ordering, Invoices

BOULDER, Colo. - March 3, 2016 -- Culinary Software Services, the leading provider of back-of-the-house technology for the foodservice industry, announces the availability of a seamless electronic data interchange (EDI) interface service with United Natural Foods (UNFI). UNFI is the largest national distributor of natural and organic foods, specialty foods, and related products in the United States and Canada. EDI interfaces for other broadline food distributors, such as Sysco, US Foods, and Performance Food Group are already available, providing CorTec and ChefTec users' powerful time-saving tools for tracking costs and ordering.

Previously, all UNFI ordering was completed through a separate online program or as a paper and pencil process. The UNFI EDI interface service will now enable CorTec and ChefTec to electronically and seamlessly place orders directly to UNFI. In addition, the interface will electronically confirm orders and provide invoices, without leaving the CorTec and ChefTec software program.



"The UNFI EDI interface functionality is a win-win situation for the foodservice industry, especially supermarkets, grocery stores, and food co-ops," said Brian Bennett, President of Culinary Software Services. "Not only does it save ChefTec users money, but it also reduces time spent on purchasing and ordering by up to five times. In today's economy, it is vital for foodservice operations to find ways to save time and money while reducing back-of-the-house processes."
