C&R Distributors: Another Molson Distributor Automates with CIS Group’s Companion® Suite

Saint-Jérôme, Québec, January 8, 2016 – C&R Distributors Ltd. of Gander, Newfoundland, automates their field operations with the CIS Group Beer Companion® Suite.

Starting in a small warehouse, C&R has steadily grown, providing their customers with dependable, courteous, and on-time delivery of the Molson Coors line of products to the Gander area. With this ever-increasing volume of business and to maintain the high level of customer service, C&R needed to automate their administrative and field operations to meet those demands.

After researching many options, C&R selected the CIS Group Beer system – which has already proven itself for the several other Molson Coors distributors in the St John’s area.

With CIS Group – using the Honeywell Intermec CN70 computers and PB51 printers – C&R will now have the added control and visibility to handle the increased transactions, deliveries, and invoicing – maintaining their high level of customer satisfaction.

As Chris Cuff of C&R Distributors stated – ‘we knew we needed to automate our systems, it was just a matter of time – and now was the time, as we expand our operations and continue to grow.’
