100+ Retailers Provide POS Data to SPS Commerce's Trading Partner Intelligence Service
Vendors Access SPS’ Web-Based Service to Analyze Sales Information to Optimize Inventory Conditions and Increase Sales
Minneapolis, MN, March10, 2010–SPS Commerce, a leading provider of on-demand supply chain management solutions, today announced that more than 100 retailers and grocers are sending their Point-of-Sale (POS) data to SPS Commerce to populate its Trading Partner Intelligence for POS Service, often in the form of an EDI 852 transaction. Vendors use SPS’ web-based service to monitor their in-store inventories, identify locations where sales are over or under-performing, and collaborate with the retailers’ buying organizations to improve sales and prevent stock-outs.
“The largest retailers and grocers in North America are sending their POS data to SPS Commerce to provide their suppliers’ sales organizations with timely information on sales and inventory at their locations,” stated Archie Black, President and CEO of SPS Commerce. “Previously this information may have been provided to the vendor, but every retailer’s file was unique. Transforming the data into a useable format and using it for decision-making was too time-consuming for vendors, especially for small or medium sized suppliers. SPS’ expertise in data integration and our relationships with many retailers have helped us to deliver this robust, yet accessible, service to our supplier customers.”
Today, SPS’ POS analysis service offers insight and analysis of POS data from more than 100 retailers, including AAFES, Academy Sports + Outdoors, ACE Hardware, ALCO Stores, Amazon.com, Bass Pro Shops, Belk, Best Buy/ Best Buy.com, Big Lots Stores, BJ’s Wholesale Club, Blaine Supply, Blockbuster, Bloomingdale’s, Bon-Ton Stores, Boscov's Department Store, Burlington Coat Factory, Cabela's, Costco, CVS/pharmacy, DICK’s Sporting Goods, Dillard’s, Dollar General, Dunham’s Sports, Eby-Brown, Family Dollar Stores, Fred's, Fred Meyer, Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Market, Gander Mountain, Hastings Entertainment, Home Depot, JCPenney, Kmart, Kohl's, Kroger, Loblaws, Lord & Taylor, Lowe’s, Macy's, Magnolia Home Theater, Meijer, Menards, Mills Fleet Farm, Modell's Sporting Goods, NEXCOM Navy Exchange, Nordstrom, Office Depot, OfficeMax, Pamida, The Paradies Shops, PetSmart, REI, Safeway, Sam’s Club, Schnucks, Sears, ShopKo, Sobeys, Sport Chalet, Sports Authority, Stage, Target, Toys”R”Us, Walgreens, Wal-Mart, Wegmans, West Marine, Winn Dixie, and Zellers.
