Costcutter Supermarkets Group (CSG) has rolled out its latest ordering platform upgrade, designed to help retailers operate more efficiently.

The upgraded ActivOC ordering system provides “a better retailer experience whilst increasing the speed of product to market and offering a more streamlined service,” in-line with Costcutter’s ActivHUB and ContentHUB systems, the company said.

Costcutter director of IT David Morris added: “The redesigned ActivOC system is the latest in a wave of upcoming tech developments.

“Since first launching four years ago we have collected some valuable insights from our retailers which have allowed us to fully upgrade the system.

“The new system makes retailers’ lives easier, providing an improved product catalogue, the ability to review current and previous orders and bookmark features they use more frequently.

“It can also help reclaim product sales as the system alerts retailers to alternative options if products are out of stock.

 “In its first few weeks since the launch more than half of our retailers signed up for the ActivOC system to complete orders.

“We hope to increase this in the coming months by providing further training for our retailers.”

The portal will also soon be available via a mobile app to assist retailers who work on the go and don’t always have regular access to a desktop or laptop.
