Unified Grocers Launches CART Portal


Last updated on June 14th, 2024 at 09:47 am

Wholesaler Unified Grocers has launched the CART platform in partnership with CART (the Center for Advancing Retail & Technology) at advancingretail.org/unified, a new service for member retailers to find, learn about and connect with the best Unified-recommended solutions for their business.

The CART portal also includes a large and growing number of resources, including case studies, papers and publications from universities that can be searched and downloaded.

“Unified is a trusted technology partner to our members,” said Mike Brown, VP of retail services and technology at Commerce, California-based Unified Grocers. “There have been dramatic changes in the use of consumer-level technologies in recent years and the CART platform gives our members the ability to quickly find and understand solutions that are recommended by Unified. The platform is a major benefit to our retailers.”

Innovation is transforming the retail industry at a growing pace as increasingly powerful cloud-based solutions make sophisticated capabilities available to even the smallest retailer.

Just as easily as you can search your smartphone for the latest apps, users can search CART for the latest retail solutions and connect with them through a single click,” said Gary Hawkins, CEO and founder of CART. “CART is helping the industry keep pace with technology-fueled innovation.”

The Unified team has drawn upon its experience working with retailers and solution providers to partner with CART in creating a platform supporting Unified’s role in bringing the latest innovation to its retail customers.

“Unified Grocers is leading the charge to help their retail customers identify and deploy the best solutions for their business,” added Hawkins. “Today’s fast-paced innovation rewards those who are nimble, and Mike Brown and his team at Unified are taking advantage of that to bring leading-edge capabilities to their independent retailers.”
