Invest in Your Most
Important Asset

The purchasing department controls your most important asset: inventory. Nothing else matters if there is no inventory.

Why is the purchasing team the last to get a new solution?

Clunky, confusing systems and in-house solutions won’t cut it. Today’s purchasing teams must know true demand for every product and ensure inventory is replenished on time.

Know more with HIMPACT®

Buyers need a powerful purchasing system. When buyers know more, they become more valuable to their team and company.

The HIMPACT® purchasing system empowers buyers to know true demand, get daily forecasts for every product, and replenish inventory with ease.

Testimonials

During our reference call phase, we discovered two different references were already using features that we requested. We were pleased to learn the popular features were already added to the base system for all customers. Carl impressed us with how quickly his team was able to implement system enhancements.format_quote

Corporate Project Director, Associated Grocers, Inc.
This is probably the 9th or 10th time we have used the PO upload for our Seasonal Show Orders and it is mind boggling how fast it goes. This year we created 268 POs in a couple seconds. It is a great, great tool. It is not only useful for huge PO orders but it is also a time saver for those orders that you have to work out in excel for whatever reason.format_quote

Manager of Procurement, Imperial Distributors
Our current system (E3 TRIM) was a great workhorse, but we needed better tools to compete in today’s marketplace ... Their new solution, HIMPACT, gives us the tools to meet and exceed our customer’s expectations.format_quote

Carl Herlitz, his team, and their solution showed that they not only understand the grocery industry, but also that they are eager to listen to our needs and deliver a service that empowers us to overcome our unique challenges.format_quote
Bill Burke
Director of Information Management, Associated Grocers, Inc.
The Herlitz team is exceptional. Very little IT support was needed on our side and we had an uneventful go live - the benchmark of a successful implementation.format_quote
Rich Stuber
VP of Information Technology, URM Stores, Inc.
With HIMPACT installed, our store’s customer service went from 78 percent to over 95 percent with lower levels of inventory. We are buying smarter and making our customer’s experience even better.format_quote
Steve McCloud
General Manager, Downtown Wine & Spirits
After a few weeks with HIMPACT, our customer service levels began to rise. We were soon hitting our goal. In just a short time, customer service levels ran 1-2 percentage points above our goal and have stayed consistently at or above our goal ever since.format_quote
Jeremy Isenberg
President, Chex Finer Foods
As everyone has discovered through the trials and tribulations of a global pandemic, independent retailers, although smaller in size and scope, have been tremendously responsive to the needs of their customers in the marketplace. Our partnership with Herlitz has been correspondingly similar: Herlitz has been very responsive and attentive to the needs of Associated Grocers, Inc. in our HIMPACT implementation project. We fully expect that this level of service will continue after we’ve gone live; just as our independent retailers will continue to excel at customer service post-pandemic.format_quote
Carl D Marks
Chief Administrative Officer, Associated Grocers, Inc.
As AGNE has grown over the years, it’s important we upgrade our technology to match the needs we have from our independent retailers. We oversee a large distribution center with thousands of SKUs, so it’s critical we have the efficiencies in a buying and inventory management system that can satisfy the dynamic needs of our business. On the tailwinds of COVID-19, we needed additional support to maintain our growing and evolving supply chain. We are confident that HIMPACT will provide the assistance our team needs to perform at the next level.format_quote
Joe Conley
Director of Merchandising and Procurement, Associated Grocers of New England
When rolling out HIMPACT, we started with purchasing from smaller vendors first. We were delighted to see higher customer fill rates and reduced inventories. This trend continued as we eventually rolled out our largest vendors.format_quote
