We believe a smarter, more connected future is within reach of us all.
It’s not about technology or tools. It’s about application: the choices we make to engage others, to create value, to solve old problems with new energy.
In this emerging world, success won’t come from size or strength, but from a willingness to harness the power of the network in new and unexpected ways. Our mission is to help our clients create this success.

Jim Ried, Olean Wholesalers Grocery Cooperative, Inc.
Accelitec’s ScanDown Service is a great place for retailers to start leveraging their point of sale data. Historically, independent grocery stores and their wholesalers have trouble accessing simple scan based promotions offered from the brands, but with the DAS / ScanDown solution from Accelitec, we can offer an inexpensive way for our retailers to efficiently run scan based promotions that drive sales, give a better price perception to their shoppers and efficiently and accurately reconcile for brands. This baseline program starts us off in the right direction.
Rudy Dory, Owner, Newport Avenue Market
I think this is one of the best pieces of technology I have put in my store to achieve increased profitability. We’ve tried a lot of technologies, and many have performed just as advertised (and some haven’t), but this one actually delivers to the bottom line.
Mike Trask, Owner, Granite Falls IGA
Our loyalty card is not really a savings card, it’s a way for us to connect with our customers and get to know them better.
Dan Murphy, Senior VP of Perishables and Retail Support Services, Unified Grocers
With the successful deployment of the Accelitec platform, Unified now offers a robust marketing solution—that can provide a significant competitive advantage for our retailers.
Terry Spencer, Vice President of Merchandising and Marketing, C&K Markets
Our goal is to provide our customers with the best possible shopping experience every time they visit one of our stores, we see this program as a way to give customers more of what they want, gaining their feedback and insights quicker so that we can provide service in our stores that no other retailer can touch.
