(EDI) technology and hitting the road to prove to the grocery trade why it should be your catch of the day.


The software specialist is exhibiting at this year’s Retail Business Technology Expo (RBTE) to show visitors how they could benefit from its time and money saving alternative to value added networks.

Data management software, Lobster_data, allows users to exchange thousands of files in any format with suppliers, clients and professional partners.

Its drag and drop technology and graphical user interface eliminates the need for programming and scripting and enables mapping and new profiles to be configured in house. There are no transaction fees and busy periods can be handled without interruptions.

Complementary software is also available to manage supply chains, product information and e-commerce.

Jeni Steele, head of Lobster UK, said: “High profile clients appreciate the way our software allows them to respond to changing demands and speeds up the decision making process.”

Far beyond EDI

Luxury retailer, Harvey Nichols, joined the Lobster_data family nine months ago and is very happy with the flexibility it provides. Ian Froggatt, the firm’s solutions delivery manager, added: “We liked Lobster’s ability to take any data inputs and produce any data outputs. We quickly realised the system went far beyond EDI and that we wouldn’t need to recode interfaces continually, which is expensive and time consuming.

“Lobster stood out in terms of its understanding of our needs and we are totally impressed with the way the company works. The team is always honest, approachable and willing to go the extra mile to support us.”

Jeni and her Chesterfield-based colleagues will be at Olympia in London for RBTE on March 9 and 10 to demonstrate Lobster’s ground-breaking approach to data transfer. She concluded: “We are looking forward to meeting new contacts from the grocery sector at this key industry event and spreading the word further about our accessible, versatile software.”
