FreshDirect, the leading online retailer of fresh foods and grocery items, and Freudenberg IT (FIT), an SAP-certified global provider of hosting and cloud services, today announced the success of a major release upgrade of the SAP® software in FreshDirect's application landscape.

Since 2009, FIT has been hosting the SAP landscape used by FreshDirect. The latest upgrade of the SAP software, which will support the retailer's future growth, occurred over a four-month period, with a near instantaneous cutover during the prescheduled upgrade weekend.

The upgrade reflects FreshDirect's larger strategic commitment to continually optimizing its technology systems to support the company's sophisticated manufacturing and production systems, category growth and geographic expansion, and dedication to enhancing the customer experience.

"At FreshDirect, we promise the freshest and highest quality foods conveniently delivered directly to the customer's front door," said Larry Roos, CIO at FreshDirect. "SAP software is the backbone of our operations, ensuring an optimal supply chain of products and timely delivery of goods. We fully rely on FIT's Managed SAP Hosting Service to ensure that we are up and running 24x7, and were extremely pleased with FIT's ability to deliver this project on time and within budget."

Michael Heuberger, President & CEO of FIT America, stated, "Many customers like FreshDirect are turning to FIT for the purchasing and managing of their SAP infrastructures. We are FreshDirect's trusted partner for all things related to SAP software, which in turn enables them to focus on their core competencies. We are honored to be a key player in supporting FreshDirect's operations and growth with our industry leading service-level agreements, experience with SAP solutions, customer focus, and attention to detail."
