Kehe Food Distributors Goes with iWay Supply Chain Software

ROMEOVILLE, Ill. -- Kehe Food Distributors has selected iWay Software's integration solutions to automate internal business processes and facilitate efficient business-to-business transactions with the wholesaler's external vendors and customers, via a service-oriented architecture (SOA) approach, which eliminates the need to write or maintain custom integration code.

iWay Software's solutions will integrate many of the company's legacy systems and facilitate B2B requirements employing iWay Service Manager SOA Middleware and Data Migrator platforms. This complete integration solution will support the inventory management, order validation, customer management, and invoice routing needs of Kehe to support growth, and improve customer and vendor service.

"With consumer spending for natural, organic, and other specialty products on the rise, and continued growth within ethnic communities throughout the United States, we outgrew our custom legacy systems, making it difficult to stay ahead of demand," explained Kehe c.i.o. Scott Cousins in a statement. "Implementing iWay's innovative technology solutions provides Kehe Food the infrastructure we needed to better manage inventory and ensure our products are available when customers are looking for them."

"Kehe Food is an exception in the industry when it comes to understanding the value of integration planning for long-term success," added iWay Software president John Senor. "Most organizations don't take the time to implement all the necessary infrastructure to ensure its systems are working efficiently and effectively, but by choosing iWay, Kehe has gained a competitive edge in the market and mitigated risk by future-proofing its integration architecture."

Employee-owned Kehe distributes specialty, gourmet, natural and organic, kosher, and ethnic foods to over 12,000 retail customers in 49 states, Mexico and the Caribbean.

Information Builders subsidiary iWay Software, based in New York, provides state-of-the-art, multipurpose integration engines that address all SOA, application, data, and information management requirements.
