Grocery Outlet is a family-owned company established to provide inexpensive groceries to its customers. It's now the largest deep-discount grocery store chain in America, with more than 200 stores in seven states. Many of these stores are owned and operated by local families to serve their neighborhood's needs, and the company keeps growing.

Between sharing data with store owners and communicating with vendors, Grocery Outlet exchanges more than 30,000 files every day. Steve Tuscher, the Director of IT, realized that having his staff write manual scripts for these file exchanges was time consuming enough, but tracking down and fixing problems when files didn't arrive at their intended destinations was the last straw.

He began looking for a solution that would automate file transfers and provide better error reporting, and after discovering some high-priced options, he decided to take a look at GoAnywhere.

GoAnywhere helps Grocery Outlet automate file transfers"We quickly replaced all of our internal FTP scripts and within a couple of months, we'd transformed our data delivery across all of our business partners and all our internal systems with GoAnywhere," Tuscher said. "We were surprised that we were able to do that as quickly and easily as we did."
