Dot continually utilizes new technologies, especially information technologies, to provide better value and service. The Dot Expressway®, our e-commerce website, was the first of its kind. It allows customers to search for item information, images, and pricing online. We lead the industry in electronic communications by using Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) to reduce transaction costs. We are founding members of the Foodservice Initiative, and utilize the Global Data Synchronization Network (GDSN) to set up and maintain product information, which is displayed on the Dot Expressway®. We have implemented a data governance program, which ensures quality data to help reduce costs and optimize our warehouse space.
