Big Y World Class Markets plans to implement the Itasca Magic™ computer generated ordering and inventory optimization solution over the next 12 months.
Itasca Retail’s Magic™ software uses historical sales data and current shelf and selling conditions to calculate the exact right order amounts for tens of thousands of items at any time of the day. This ensures each store always has the right stock levels to fulfill shopper demand.
Said Jeff Kennedy, Itasca Retail’s President and Co-Founder, “Itasca Retail is honored to have been selected to help Big Y and its associates optimize store inventories and stay reliably in-stock on the products they bring to their customers. We welcome them to a growing list of valued customers and look forward to a long-term relationship assisting them to remain the preferred destination for their loyal shoppers.”
