BATON ROUGE, La. — Associated Grocers here has replaced its legacy back-end system with the Retail Boss suite of applications from BRdata, Melville, N.Y., to deliver price management services to Associated Grocers' more than 215 retail members.
The services — including complete retail, temporary price reductions and promotional pricing options — are available over the Internet. Advanced features include price links, unlimited rounding and pricing rules.
"BRdata allows AG to provide a high-tech price management tool for our retail members without having to reinvent the wheel," said Steven A. Miller, senior vice president of strategic planning, projects, and information services at Associated Grocers.
According to Miller, Associated Grocers' long-term plan is to offer two types of services: the standard package now in production — where retailers can manage and/or customize store pricing at the item or category level of all house items via one common database — and an enhanced package, currently being implemented, where retailers can establish their own separate database and include their DSD items, as well.
