Fast-growing foodservice operator was struggling with an aging, Linux-based system. Whilst a major IT project was daunting, MD Steve Ainger said, ‘To maintain our reputation while pursuing expansion, we knew we had to move to a more modern, intelligent business solution from a proactive provider who could meet our future needs.’

The company chose STL – in part for the rich, wholesale-specific functionality and openness of our next-generation flagship platform, Evo, which would enable seamless data transfer with the company’s Sage 200 accounting software, SwiftCloud ordering app and Sales-i sales enablement tool.

But their decision was also determined by STL’s stable and experienced management team, vision and continuous investment in products, skills and services. Our combination of deep IT and wholesale sector expertise meant that First Choice completed its migration in just four weeks.
