Associated Foods to Install Project Management System

Associated Food Stores, a cooperatively owned wholesale distributor to almost 450 independent supermarkets, plans to install a project and portfolio management (PPM) solution, to provide visibility, manage resources and make project priority decisions to increase productivity.

The wholesaler is working with Orem, Utah-based AtTask, which developed software to help organizations reduce costs and increase productivity on a platform-independent and multilingual solution.

“AtTask gives us increased visibility to every project,” said Wade Judd, executive director of IT for Associated Foods. “We can see where we’re spending our time, what we’re working on, and make adjustments to keep our people working on the projects that provide the most business value.”

Associated will use AtTask to manage a variety of IT projects, and to validate IT initiatives by providing visibility and accountability into every project.

“AtTask’s reports and dashboards allow us to view status at a glance, and top-to-bottom accountability helps keep everyone on our project teams focused and productive,” said Dan Thorson, developer and internal AtTask administrator.

Salt Lake City, Utah-based Associated serves almost 450 independently owned supermarkets in an eight state region.
