March 24, 2021

notch is extremely excited and proud to be partnering with Norman Distribution as their order management platform.

This new partnership will allow customers to easily browse the Norman catalogue and checkout in seconds. notch's distributor product, Connect, integrates fully into their existing systems reducing the need for manual entry. Connect also provides an end to end ordering solution for one of the leading food service distribution companies in America, and for their customers in the Chicagoland area.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with Matt Archbold and his team at Norman, to offer their buyers an online ordering experience. We're excited to help Norman's customers order the products they love with a few clicks for the first time, and to remove manual order entry for the Norman team so they can deliver on their service promise easier than ever before. We couldn’t be more excited to be kicking off this partnership with the team.”

- Jordan Huck, CEO of notch
“I’m often very hesitant to work with the majority of companies like [notch] that approach me.  Often they have proprietary systems with no connectivity to existing accounting and inventory platforms. As you can imagine, managing items in two separate places is frustrating, and connectivity to our current system is a must. [notch] has taken the time to learn our specific needs  and is truly working with us to manage this solution. They are not just selling us a service, they are really partnering with us and want us to succeed.”

-  Matthew Archbold, CTO of Norman Distribution.
