Regional grocer automates process with ReposiTrak
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Seeking to increase purchases from businesses with diverse and underrepresented ownership, Southeastern Grocers Inc. has turned to MarketPlace, an automated sourcing solution from Utah-based Park City Group Inc.
“Working with ReposiTrak to tailor internal practices allows us to find and contract with more diverse suppliers,” said Dewayne Rabon, chief merchandising officer for Southeastern Grocers. “This new partnership with ReposiTrak helps offer customers throughout the Southeast with the most relevant products that best suit their tastes and preferences.”
ReposiTrak MarketPlace helps vendors build a profile and connect to retailers that are interested in selling their products. Retailers can search for products and categories, apply filters to find exactly what they need and ultimately contact new suppliers.
Vendors can design MarketPlace features that highlight their specific characteristics and qualifications.
“Delivering high-quality products and services reliably to customers at three brands across five southeastern states requires incredible coordination,” said Randy Fields, Park City Group’s chairman and chief executive officer. “Southeastern Grocers raises the bar by simultaneously committing to a corporate culture of belonging, inclusion and diversity. ReposiTrak is committed to making the partnership with SEG work so the retailer’s goal for a more diverse supplier base through an automated solution is met.”
Southeastern Grocers operates supermarkets under the Fresco y Más, Harveys Supermarket and Winn-Dixie banners in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana and Mississippi.
