Mighty Oaks Moves into Vancouver Data Centre

Mighty Oaks Moving In to Harbour Center

To ensure our Canadian customers benefit from the fastest performance possible we recently relocated our Victoria server farm to Harbour Center in Vancouver.  With connections into the main internet exchange in BC this provides the best options in BC.  Ensuring the fastest response possible for users on our platforms.

Mighty Oaks and Solarwinds

Solarwinds Logo

Mighty Oaks has reviewed its operations, the solar winds products we use and found that it has not been impacted by the recent Solarwinds security issues reported in the media.

We do make use of certain solarwinds products in our network operations center.  The products we use have not been identified as being compromised by solarwinds and are not exposed to the internet.  We continue to monitor the situations as the unfold and will take actions as needed to ensure continuity of our operations and security of our customers data. 

COVID-19 and Our Systems

Since our platforms directly manage the e-commerce and logistics for a number of food retailers and wholesalers in Canada, the US and Latin America we recognize the role we play in the food supply chain in these difficult times.   We are committed to ensuring our platform continues to meet the needs of our retailer during these challenging time.

New Burnaby Riverway - Big Bend Location

Mighty Oaks and its parent company Meewasin Analytics Inc. have a second home in the Lower Mainland. 

With staff working out of Victoria, Vancouver, Toronto and Ottawa we have a geographically diverse team and seeing the increased demand from customers in the Metro Vancouver area it made sense to open our second office in Burnaby.  Opening the Vancouver location provide a home for the team that has been working in the lower mainland for the past 5 years as well as strengthening our presence near key customers. 

Fast Grocery Retail – The Growth of Online Grocery

 Elite customer experiences demand an evolving fast-retail strategy defined in short time horizons (6-12 months) with close-to-consumer self-service channels including proximity-based inventory distribution, fulfilment network and on-demand delivery, with both traditional grocery standards (such as milk and bread) together with health-oriented dietary choices (such as salads and organics). 

2.    There is the increasing complexity with the expansion of e-commerce logistics and the omni-channel model. The solution to this problem is to rethink food production/processing, shipping and location strategies, such as offering ship to store, in-store fulfilment and automated locker networks, using stores as a distribution center and increasing the marketing and visibility of high-volume and convenience-focused products. The enlarged convenience store (c-store) model potentially checks all these boxes.

3.    C-Stores, along with smaller-footprint stores (1000-2000 sq. ft.), allow for agile operational models for profitability and supply chain revenue growth as both proof of concept modelling and real-time analytics for lessons learned to help win the online grocery battle.
