I saw a very good article carried in Supermarket News yesterday written by Michael Garry. The article was called “Bouncing Back” and it summarized anticipated retailer spending forecasts on information technology. Read the article here. I was pleased to see the increased acceptance that Software-as-a-Service has gained given its advantages for retailers. I was also very enthusiastic about the increasing importance that retailers are placing on Price Optimization, Promotion Planning, Trade Promotion Management, and Computer Based Ordering, all things that are core to the Revionics solution portfolio. With the National Grocers Association show occurring this week, the article was very timely.
If you happen to be attending the National Grocers Association Show in Las Vegas this week, I want to personally invite you to attend a presentation that I will be doing with Luigi Mucciacciaro, Director of Store Operations for D’Agostino Supermarkets on their experiences with Price Optimization. The educational session is entitled, “Price Optimization for Improved Profits” and it will take place on Thursday, February 11th at 9:15am-10:15am in the Versailles Ballroom 3 & 4 at the Paris Hotel. This educational session will cover how pricing optimization software can be used by grocers to drive sales and profits all while tuning pricing to satisfy consumers.
I want to also mention that Revionics will also be exhibiting on the NGA Show Floor. Be sure to stop by the Revionics booth (#703) for additional information on our product services in addition to meeting the Revionics team.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to seeing you in Las Vegas for the National Grocers Association Supermarket Synergy 2010 Show.
