Wholesale Distribution and services
US Foods is a leading distributor of more than 350,000 products to over 250,000 customers, including independent and multiunit restaurants, healthcare and hospitality entities, and government and educational institutions.
US Foods needed an automated, centralized endpoint management solution to replace cumbersome software compliance monitoring and application deployment processes across 15,000 endpoints.
The company selected IBM® Endpoint Manager software for lifecycle management, software usage analysis, power management, and security and compliance
IBM Endpoint Manager software helped US Foods reduce patch deployment times by 80 percent, saving USD500,000 on software licenses and avoiding more than USD1 million in license noncompliance fines.
