PARK CITY, UT – September 8, 2009 – Park City Group (OTCBB: PCYG) today announced Spartan Stores Inc., a Michigan-based grocery retailer and one of the nations largest wholesale distributors, has signed on to become the latest grocery retailer to implement Park City Group’s Consumer Driven Sales Optimization™ (CDSO) model in support of their scan based trading initiative. Spartan will be joining an extensive community of retailers and suppliers using a common platform where they can capture, manage, analyze and share critical data, bringing greater visibility throughout their supply chain. Park City Group provides solutions and services to retailers and suppliers.
“Consumer Driven Sales Optimization and Scan Based Trading will be an important tool to support our strategic business plan and business goals,” noted Alan Hartline, Executive Vice President Merchandising and Marketing.
Spartan Stores was investigating a scan based trading solution to improve working capital and eliminate inventory fluctuations at financial period ends. They were also searching for a solution that could reduce their shrink by category/vendor through a shrink sharing program. Park City Group’s Consumer Driven Sales Optimization model was selected to provide greater visibility into store-level product movement, enabling Spartan Stores and its suppliers to have a more collaborative relationship through shared visibility to the necessary supply chain information.
Spartan Stores will also be utilizing the Park City Group’s operational insights solution which will provide visibility into shrink by vendor, store, and product, as well as by user-defined attributes, such as department and management structure, and helps identify the root causes of shrink. Spartan will utilize the solution to perform a deeper dive into detailed analytics and support their shrink sharing program.
“The volume of retailers we have seen on-boarding with CDSO is beyond expectations. We have always seen the value of collaboration and data sharing between retailers and suppliers, and are pleased to see the market respond so favorably.” stated Randall K. Fields, Chairman & CEO of Park City Group.
