Affiliated Foods Selects HIMPACT System To Optimize Inventory

Affiliated Foods Inc. traceability

Amarillo, Texas-based Affiliated Foods Inc. has chosen Herlitz Inventory Management’s HIMPACT as its new purchasing system.

AFI was founded in 1968 as the result of a merger between two grocery companies. Over the past half a century, the grocery retail cooperative and distribution center has grown to include more than 700 member stores spanning eight states.

“We are very excited to partner with Herlitz, a company known for its industry-leading procurement technology,” said Tommy Galyen, director of procurement for Affiliated Foods Inc.

“AFI is also thrilled about the capabilities and enhancements this system provides. With generational knowledge and a reputation for flexibility and outstanding customer service, we look forward to a very close relationship with Herlitz Inventory Management.”

With more than 70 years of experience in the grocery wholesaler and distribution industry, AFI has created buying practices that have resulted in growth and success for the business. In recent years, the management team searched to adopt more efficient buying tools for its team.

“Affiliated Foods Inc. marks the fifth ROFDA wholesaler partner to sign on with HIMPACT, but they also represent another first for Herlitz IM,” said Carl Herlitz, president and CEO of Herlitz Inventory Management.

“By partnering with ROFDA members, HIMPACT has replaced its predecessor E3TRIM several times, along with a legacy system called BICEPS. By partnering with AFI, HIMPACT will supersede the purchasing features of a system called Worldwide Chain Store Systems for the first time.”

“The IT team at AFI has been great to work with. They spun up the VM and we installed HIMPACT in only two days. We will continue to roll out the solution to AFI’s team by following our swift three-step implementation process.”

Founded in 2009, Herlitz Inventory Management provides tightly integrated demand forecasting, order optimization, promotion and forward buying. Herlitz’s designs are used by thousands of companies to optimize inventory. With end-to-end visibility and new insights, HIMPACT delivers optimized buying quantities, highly satisfied customers and tighter inventory management.
