SUNBURY, PA [January 21, 2020] – Weis Markets, Inc. has selected the Itasca Magic™ Computer Generated Ordering (CGO) and DSD Receiving solutions to replace existing legacy software for its retail locations, including more than 170 stores that offer its Weis 2 Go Online pickup and delivery services.
The publicly-traded supermarket company (NYSE: WMK) with 198 stores in seven states anticipates store-level inventory optimization will help it reduce excess inventory and product spoilage by ensuring sufficient product is always available to meet consumer demand without excess. This is especially challenging in stores where online orders are fulfilled.
Itasca Retail’s 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 in all departments, shelf-stable and perishable.
