Convenience-store operator Dore Stores Inc. has partnered with Advanced Digital Data Inc., or ADD Systems, as its software provider.
Dore Stores was looking for a software solution to streamline their daily business operations, according to ADD Systems. The retailer was looking for improved automation and efficiencies for its backoffice processes, as well as with handheld units in its stores with the capability to scan vendor deliveries. In fuel, they wanted to improve their delivery and billing processes.
Dore Stores will use ADD eStore for its c-stores and ADD Energy E360/ADD Energy E3 for its retail fuel operations. Dore Stores will also use Atlas Reporting, ADD Systems’ solution for business intelligence and reporting.
“At a store level, we’ve been able to immediately see which products are unauthorized and remove them from our deliveries before being billed for them,” said Jen Dore, director of marketing and vendor relations at Dore Stores. “This was once a very time-consuming process. We’re looking forward to more efficiencies that the scanners offer when it comes to category inventory audits for lottery, tobacco and other risk categories.”
Kawkawlin, Michigan-based Dore Corp. is a family-owned company with 15 business locations. It began as a single gas station and c-store when Fred Dore opened the first location in 1976. He later created The Jerky Outlet, which has grown to nine locations in Michigan.
ADD Systems, a leading supplier of software solutions for the c-store and energy distribution industries, is based in Flanders, New Jersey. Its software solutions include ADD Energy E360, ADD Energy E3, ADD eStore, Atlas Reporting, Raven and Pegasus mobile truck computers and SmartConnect, a web services gateway.
