In this unprecedented time, grocery stores have seen a sharp growth in their sales. This has created a greater need for managing the customer demand, including product information in an efficient and secure way.
Accurate and complete product information has become imperative to support all sales channels. Schnuck Markets, Inc. (Schnucks) is taking steps to ensure they keep up with the increased demand of robust product information from their customers.
By leveraging the Global Data Synchronization Network (GDSN) to receive all product data moving forward, complexities and inefficiencies of manual processes will be eliminated. Key product attributes, spanning both in-store and digital shelves, can be maintained in real-time resulting in more efficient inventory processing.
Schnucks Supplier Data Sync Initiative – What You Need to Know
Moving forward, Schnucks is asking all active trading partners to publish all product content via the GDSN. This will allow for cross-functional efficiencies, from supply chain logistics to images and marketing messages, enabling their teams to take your products from distribution to display in a timely manner. Schnucks consumers will also benefit from accessing the most current product data for their digital and omni-channel shopping carts.
