There are a few suggested ways for quick ordering on the new Business to Business Online Ordering site.
Scan & Go
Download the Mobile App Columbia Distributing Fridge from the device’s App store.
Sign in to The Fridge account with the username and password provided from the initial set-up. If no account is established yet, contact Customer Service.
Once signed in, users can immediately begin scanning products to order. Please indicate cases or bottles for individual quick scan or multi-scanning. This is to ensure the right product is ordered.
Manage the “Build To Par” during scanning, or simply input the quantity in the “Built To” field to order and ignore “On Hand”.
The shopping list function allows users to build templates for different order types. Examples include Regular Order, Seasonal Order and Holiday Orders. Build template and duplicate templates for quick order building.
Clicking “Create Template” or “Shopping Template” allows users to add products from recent orders. Users can also see previous ordering patterns for each product. This feature helps users make informed decision when in a pinch and needing to “blind order”.
If a user is looking for a product outside of the template, simply use the search bar or “order products” link to find the product and add it to the template of choice.
Users can obtain a Pricing Template of all Columbia Distributing’s item numbers and products. Build orders quickly in an excel spreadsheet. Save the file in .CSV format with “Item#” in first column and “Quantity” in second column. Upload the entire order in the quick order widget. Please note that the columns must be in the order listed above for the upload to work.
