LAWRENCEVILLE, N.J. - UCCnet announced on Tuesday that Midwestern food retailer Hy-Vee will begin implementing the organization's item registration and data synchronization services.
Hy-Vee joins more than 250 other supply and demand side trading partners as members of the UCCnet community.
Hy-Vee will begin issuing communications in December to its 1,500 suppliers asking them to join UCCnet and prepare to synchronize item data for the 50,000 products stocked by the retailer. The company has begun developing a plan to efficiently integrate UCCnet services, which it will execute in 2003.
"UCCnet will directly benefit our company by drastically eliminating errors in our data catalog, through the use of the registry and its one to many electronic capability for updating item information. The current process of manual entry and multiple touch points leads to inaccurate data and adds cost to our supply chain," said Ron Pearson, CEO and COO of Hy-Vee and chairman of FMI. "Through the use of UCCnet, we also anticipate increased speed to market for new products which translates to increased revenue dollars for us and our suppliers."
Hy-Vee Inc. is an employee-owned corporation operating more than 200 retail stores in seven Midwestern states.
