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.
