DALLAS -- Retalix USA launched CS Direct, a convenience store supply-chain initiative for those operators considering the option of self-distribution. The new initiative is specifically tailored to the requirements of the convenience store sector and is based around the supply-chain execution and warehouse management solutions of OMI International, which Retalix acquired in January 2004.
With c-store operators continuing to look for ways to drive down supply chain costs and achieve greater efficiency, many are turning to self-distribution as a means of providing a competitive edge. A successful transition and streamlining of warehouse operations can enable convenience stores to benefit from increased margins, better in-stock availability and store productivity.
The new Retalix CS Direct initiative will provide services enabling c-store operators to evaluate whether they can perform self-warehousing and distribution functions more efficiently than their traditional providers. The program offers an extensive suite of software solutions for purchasing, order management, warehouse and yard management, as well as invoice reconciliation and billing and a full range of professional business and technical services.
"We recognize that in today's highly competitive environment, many c-store operators can realize substantial cost savings by going to self-distribution," said Jeff Yelton, CEO of Retalix USA. "Retalix CS Direct provides convenience store operators with proven software and services to successfully evaluate and implement all the components of self-distribution. Combined with our well-established store and head office product offering, our solutions enable retailers to move to a new level of enterprise-wide data synchronization and visibility and significantly improved business performance."
