“Truno is constantly evaluating the best of retail technology and partnering for the best of our customers,” added Steven Watters, Truno’s president. “At the end of the day, we are integrators, and when we see a solution of value, we work to provide that platform to our retailers.”
For more than 40 years, Truno has worked with retailers to identify the technologies they need to navigate an ever-changing and increasingly competitive industry. With Storewise providing digestible data at the store level and above, Truno’s grocery operators can be empowered at all levels to make their best decisions.
“Because Storewise seamlessly folds the most commonly used grocery functions into one unified dashboard, a partnership with the industry-renowned team at Truno is ideal. Storewise bridges existing tools to provide data-driven insights, make recommendations and even automate tasks if the grocer chooses,” noted Christopher Greco, president and CEO of Overland Park, Kan.-based Storewise. “Our platform truly serves the interests of independents.”
The Storewise grocery automation platform offers multiple modules that secure and boost profits, including Dynamic Sales Reporting, which gives retailers the control they need to analyze store, department and item-level performance previously requiring hours of manual effort and cross-comparison between multiple reports before yielding actionable insights; Price Analysis and Price Manager, delivering a simple way for operators to keep prices correct, ensuring the right price image for stores; the Ordering bridge-buying program, enabling retailers to order allowance items that are expiring and not coming back “on-deal” immediately; Risk Reduction, which provides point-of-sale exception reporting, catches losses and improves training opportunities; and TPR Automation, which increases gross margin by matching temporary price reductions to in-store pricing.
