SALT LAKE CITY - Tomax announced that specialty foods retailer Balducci's has selected the Tomax Retail.net solution as the backbone for its retail operations. Implementation is slated to begin in June, 2004, and the retailer expects to go live October 2004.
Sutton Place Gourmet, a highly regarded and successful regional gourmet food chain, acquired Balducci's in 2000. The Balducci's brand has become an icon in the New York/Manhattan market, offering an assortment of exclusive food products, ready-to-serve offerings, and catering services, and the name will now be extended to the other stores in the chain.
"The Tomax Retail.net model fits our brand and vision," said Balducci's c.i.o., Carey Lowery. "We are creating a high-performance, customer-service-oriented information systems architecture that allows real-time integration between point-of-sale, inventory, and replenishment systems. We need the benefits of rapid deployment, instant access to information, and the unique flexibility that the Retail.net single-instance strategy offers."
The implementation plan is based on an aggressive implementation of Retail.net components to manage central office operations, including inventory price management, and hosting of the current store point-of-sale system. Subsequent phases will include the deployment of the Tomax Retail.net Java POS solution, along with other advanced pricing and supply chain planning and replenishment components.
