UFPC Equipment Sales Launches New Web Site

Louisville, Ky. — July 14, 2006 —

UFPC Equipment Sales, a division of Unified Foodservice Purchasing Co-op, LLC (UFPC), launched a new Web site in January 2006. The new site replaces old technology with a newer, more stable platform and was designed around customer feedback gathered from interviews, surveys and focus groups.

“We listened to our customers and delivered a more user-friendly, functional site,” said Dale Holden, Vice President, Equipment Sales. “Our library of information will help members find equipment for replacement projects and new store builds, while allowing customers to download our latest equipment and smallwares catalogs.”

The new site’s developers, Craig Goldstein, Operations Director, and Dean Bottorff, Software Developer II, say the improvements are significant in terms of customer impact.

“This new site is based on reliable technology that will allow customers to review detailed equipment information and place orders 24/7,” Goldstein said.

Whether they own one store or 100 stores, concept co-op members will find the site can adapt to their needs.

“A new feature allows customers to order for multiple stores by placing one order,” Bottorff explained. “This saves the customer a tremendous amount of time.”

Here is a complete list of updates and additions to the site:

  • An improved library of specification sheets
  • Up-to-date equipment specials and warranty information
  • An expanded equipment search function
  • Shared user IDs and passwords with www.ufpc.com
  • Downloadable PDF equipment and smallwares catalogs
  • E-mail confirmations on orders

Concept co-op members who need login assistance should contact UFPC Equipment Sales at (800) 444-7868.  For more information or to tour the new site, please visit http://equipmentsales.ufpc.com.
