New York City – NRF 101st Annual Convention & Expo (Booth #227) – January 17, 2012 – Aldata, a global leader in retail and distribution improvement software, today announced Aldata Direct Store Delivery (DSD) and Aldata Replenishment Insights, two new solutions that will further enhance Aldata’s holistic suite of retail technologies. Both products will be available for live demo at the National Retail Federation’s 101st Annual Convention & Expo being held this week at the Jacob K. Javits Center in New York.
Aldata Direct Store Delivery (DSD)
Despite understanding the operational challenges that come with high-turnover products, grocers and perishable food distributors continue to lose profits due to inefficient delivery strategies. Outdated technologies used for the delivery and sales of perishables incur unnecessary costs associated with accounting labor, pricing inaccuracies and inventory discrepancies. Aldata DSD standardizes data from the point the merchandise arrives at the back door of the store to the moment that invoices are reconciled by corporate accounting. Retailers and distributors that implement this state-of-the-art technology will be able to reduce inventory, labor and transportation costs while ensuring the correct amount of fresh merchandise is available on store shelves. The first customers to take advantage of Aldata DSD will be Heinen’s Fine Food Supermarkets and KTA Superstores.
Aldata Replenishment Insights
Those working in retail operations understand that time is money therefore the delivery of relevant information to key decision-makers in real-time is a key opportunity to improve operations. Traditional data-sourcing and extraction have been tedious and painful processes for retailers and distributors forced to rely on unstructured data in spreadsheet business applications. Aldata Replenishment Insights is a game-changing platform that takes meaningful business intelligence out of spreadsheets and brings it to the right people at the right time through a consolidated dashboard. The solution pulls data from multiple sources to provide a single version of the truth for retailers and makes it easy to analyze and take effective action instantly.
“Aldata’s number one priority is to make our customers’ jobs easier while increasing their revenue,” said Allan Davies, CMO of Aldata. “Aldata DSD and Aldata Replenishment Insights are great examples of innovative solutions developed based on our customers’ retail and distribution pain points. We are excited to share these new innovations with NRF BIG Show attendees and any other retail organization that wants to greatly improve its supply chain and warehouse management operations to increase customer loyalty, streamline operations and capitalize on growth opportunities.”
