Regional independent D’Agostino Supermarkets, plans to deploy a turnkey retail supply chain solution that includes scan based trading (SBT) to enable supplier flexibility in delivering, stocking, and managing inventory in stores located in some of the most congested city locations in the nation.
The grocer is working with Park City, Utah-based Park City Group on the deployment. “Doing business in New York City is very competitive and challenging and we need to stay at the forefront of the market to provide the highest level of service and a superior shopping experience for our customers,” said Nick D’Agostino III, president and CEO of the grocery chain. “The selection of Park City Group’s turnkey solution provides us with a competitive edge in working with our suppliers to ensure our shelves are stocked and our information systems capture the data necessary to maximize our performance and results.”
According to Park City Group, scan based trading provides retail trading partners with a distinct competitive advantage through scan sales visibility that sets the supply chain in motion and is a proven procurement strategy that guarantees sales results and minimizes or eliminates inventory. By employing Park City Group’s collaborative SBT solution, D’Agostino will also have shared visibility with its suppliers of store/item level shrink, perpetual inventory and accurate daily point-of-sale data.
D’Agostino Supermarkets operates nearly 20 grocery stores in Manhattan and Westchester County, NY that feature deli and floral departments, seafood and meat counters, and fresh and organic produce.
