Costcutter Supermarkets Group has launched an online portal to help retailers monitor their businesses more efficiently.

Called ActivHUB, the new portal enables members to view all of their systems, documents and information in one place. Through a single screen it allows them to use the order capture system Activ OC to place and check orders, use the finance section to look at invoices and payment schedules, and access marketing and trading support. Retailers can also view and download planograms to assist with store layout.

The hub is optimised for both desktop and tablet devices, and a mobile companion will be launched in early 2015.

Costcutter IT director Kevin Widdrington said: “With an increased requirement of constantly improving communication, ActivHUB is an exciting step in bringing us even closer to our members and enabling them to get real time communication from the latest launches to legal aspects of their business and sharing best practice.”
