CINCINNATI -- United Dairy Farmers is implementing Retalix DemandAnalytX, a data-cleansing, demand-forecasting and order-optimization application, at its 190 convenience stores in the Midwest.
With multiple items in a variety of traditional c-store categories, such as cigarettes and candy bars, in addition to its own premium ice cream, UDF wanted a tool that would increase operational efficiency by reducing inventory levels, out-of-stocks, shrinkage and spoilage. UDF chose Retalix DemandAnalytX because its retail-based algorithms address the unique operational challenges of convenience store and retail environments as opposed to challenges faced by businesses and enterprises.
"As a convenience store chain, we need to provide an optimum customer experience for every customer, which means we must have all products on the shelf, all the time," said Dan Burke, vice president of operations, United Dairy Farmers. "Retalix DemandAnalytX will help us perfect the customer experience and improve our revenues at the same time. Based on our experience with computer assisted ordering, we expect Retalix DemandAnalytX to decrease our inventory levels by as much as 15 percent and halve our out-of-stocks and spoilage."
"Not only can Retalix DemandAnalytX help UDF manage its inventory levels and streamline its ordering process, but it can also help UDF create a positive experience for every customer by ensuring product availability, which is especially key in the c-store environment," said Victor Hamilton, president and CEO of Dallas-based Retalix USA. "Convenience store operators deserve the tools and applications that help larger enterprises streamline their operations and save money, which is one of the reasons why Retalix solutions are designed to help operators realize a return on their investment as quickly as possible."
Retalix solutions for convenience stores, including Retalix DemandAnalytX, will be demonstrated during NACStech at booth #516 from May 22-24.
