Convenience Store Chain Rutter’s Chooses PDI Cloud Hosting Services


Rutter’s, a Pennsylvania-based convenience store chain, has selected PDI Hosting Services to increase its infrastructure and strengthen its data security measures. With the addition of PDI’s data hosting service, Rutter’s infrastructure environment will run on a dedicated, single-tenant, multi-petabyte private cloud that is fully managed and monitored by PDI.

PDI is a global provider of ERP, fuel pricing, supply chain logistics, and marketing cloud solutions for the convenience retail and petroleum wholesale industries. Rutter’s uses several of PDI’s solutions and services to help run its multi-faceted operation.

“In recent years, the amount of data convenience stores contend with every day has increased exponentially, and that’s especially true for growing chains like ours,” said Scott Hartman, CEO at Rutter’s. “The time and hardware investment it takes to maintain, scale, and secure that environment wasn’t sustainable. PDI provides a great solution that meets our technology, cost and expertise requirements and allows our people to focus on other strategic initiatives that enable us to serve our customers better.”

Data Backups, Disaster Recovery

Since the outbreak of COVID-19, remote work and cyberattacks have increased around the world. PDI Hosting Services would enable seamless remote operations for convenience retailers and petroleum marketers of any size. Customers also have access to the PDI Technology Services team to perform software upgrades, enabling them to quickly take advantage of new features and capabilities.

In addition, the service would offer data backups, disaster recovery and intrusion detection that improve data reliability and reduce the risk of security breaches that compromise sensitive financial and operational data.

“We have a long history of working with Rutter’s to support their business needs, and we’re excited to expand that relationship,” said Drew Mize, executive vice president and general manager of ERP Solutions at PDI. “Our goal is to enable our customers to maximize their software investment with PDI and quickly adapt to the changing technology landscape. Our cloud hosting services help them embrace new technology and scale faster.”
