Houston, Texas–April 25, 2018 Nation Pizza and Foods, a frozen food manufacturer that also provides food research and development services, partnered with DiCentral for its web portal’s EDI services to equip them to better manage their continuous demand and client requirements. Since connecting with DiCentral, Nation Pizza and Foods has seen five to 10 percent annual growth and is now shipping up to 45 million frozen pizzas each month to clients across the United States.
The Illinois-based company launched its pizza crust technology in the 1970s and continued to expand its focus to provide clients with a wide variety of food each year. DiCentral’s web services were added to efficiently keep up with the ever-growing demand through management of client invoices, purchase orders and advanced shipping notices.
“We’re pushing out about 60 semi-loads to our clients every day,” said Bruce Waid, IT Director for Nation Pizza and Foods. “That’s the way our clients operate – they’ve got their own system plans you’re working with. They expect you to work on their schedule and you’ve got to hustle.”
DiCentral’s EDI solutions allow Nation Pizza and Foods to meet specific, ongoing client requirements and helps them cut administrative invoicing costs, not to mention help manage the complexities of shipping more than one hundred million frozen pizzas each year.
“Most of our clients want to work through EDI, and one of the powerful and time-saving capabilities offered by DiCentral is that contacts and connections can be set up very quickly,” he said. “We give DiCentral all the specifications and they handle the entire process. The reliability is exceptional.”
For a food company that has notable clients with specific requirements, Waid said that DiCentral’s web portal gives Nation Pizza and Foods everything it needs, including advanced shipping notices and user-friendly options to add new customers.
