Lazzari Fuel Chooses DIcentral for Grocery Industry Supplier EDI Connections

SAN FRANCISCO, CA (March 04, 2003) - Lazzari Fuel Company, Inc., a manufacturer, distributor, and seller of premium mesquite charcoal products for the retail grocery industry, today announces that it uses DIcentral's Internet-based B2B technology to connect electronically to suppliers, dealers and customers to reduce costs and streamline business operations.

DIcentral (pronounced "D.I. Central"), a leading provider of hosted B2B data integration services to the grocery and retail industry, gives Lazzari the ability to connect to many of its large retail customers that require an EDI connection.

"Lazzari did not have to install or maintain any software at their location," says Thuy Mai, CEO of DIcentral Corporation. "They use our Mobile Portal B2B software. This immediately gives Lazzari the capability of a company that otherwise would have had to purchase both an EDI and XML translator with Internet and VAN connection capabilities. It is just one way to utilize our system's many capabilities in this business."

Robert Colbert, Vice President of Lazzari Fuel Company, Inc., says he has searched for a low-cost, user-friendly and fully functional B2B solution for years.

"DIcentral's system meets and exceeds those expectations," said Colbert, "providing all of these services for our business so we can satisfy our large customers' EDI requirements. We can now focus on rapid implementation of DIcentral's products to integrate our clients' operational and business information, all the while ensuring data consistency. In the next thirty-to-sixty days, we plan to connect eight more major retailer companies in North America using the DIcentral network."
