THE RIGHT TECHNOLOGY gives grocers a better handle on out-of-stocks at the store level. At Itasca Retail, we’ve been proving that for more than a decade in more than 1,300 supermarkets across North America.
Current industry dialog on On-Shelf Availability has focused greater attention on best practices around store-level inventory visibility. In Progressive Grocer magazine’s June 2016 issue, veteran journalist Jenny McTaggart delved deeply into the topic. Itasca Retail President and co-founder Jeff Kennedy was interviewed at length.
“We estimate that at least three-fourths of current out-of-stocks are caused by a frustrating combination of antiquated ordering systems plus inadequate shelf-management processes,” Kennedy said.
“Approaches that don’t include the store fail, because there is no benefit to the store,” he continued.
With more than a decade of successful implementations at leading supermarket companies, Itasca Magic™ has compiled a track record that competitors are still aspiring to match.
