Nationwide food distribution with Ninja Precision
As Japanese cuisine has become a popular dining choice in Australia, Daiwa Food Corporation has been recognised as a major Japanese food importer and distributor.

Daiwa were wanting to service their existing customers in a more efficient way, providing access for ‘anytime’ ordering as well and to enhance the service experience for certain customers only needing to order specific products. At the same time, Daiwa sales reps also needed a nice easy way to order on behalf of their customers whilst out on the road. Daiwa knew that by integrating their web store to MYOB Exo, they could control their website products display, show customers ‘their’ price, make outstanding invoices available for printing and also restrict some customers to only see certain products… all from within the MYOB Exo system.

Using a Web Ninja standard B2B template, Daiwa’s colour and logo were rinsed through the site to adhere to their branding. The site is configured as a ‘login only’ site primarily to service existing customers and their sales reps to use the site for remote ordering. Daiwa Food is also using a dedicated ‘mobile’ compatible module with the same features as the desktop site.
