Southern Foods has begun a pilot program for Online Order entry called Order Pro. Several customers are helping us by trying it out and "kicking the tires" so to speak. One of my Chefs in Greensboro has just begun working with it and it looks like a winner. With Order Pro you simply log-on with your secure user name and password and enter your order for next day delivery. It shows our entire inventory with prices and availability. It will also allow you to build a "history". The program will keep track of items you order week to week and offers a reminder if you forget to order something. Very helpful for the odds and ends that fall thru the cracks. Another great thing is the convenience, Working on next weeks specials at Sunday night at 11:30 pm? With Order Pro, log on and check those prices when you want. In this day of Uber connectivity, it just makes sense for us to offer this to you. Please let me know if you would be interested in this feature as it comes available.
