Itasca’s founders pioneered better automation in DSD receiving in the 1990’s. Today, this technology has more installations for both spot-sell and pre-sell Direct Store Delivery vendors than any other software provider. While under multiple different names today, the same core technology is also an optional part of the Itasca Inventory Optimization solution.
“Combined with a CGO solution that’s second-to-none, Itasca DSD Receiving allows retailers to utilize the same database that they’ve taken time to ensure is accurate for the automated ordering process.”
The synergy that emerges here reduces workload on IT departments who support store applications, and reduces confusion at store level as the combination of solutions often eliminates handhelds in the stores.
Itasca DSD Receiving improves the efficiency and accuracy of processing DSD vendor invoices and credits, while stopping unauthorized merchandise from entering the store. Multiple receiving methods allow retailers to tailor the receiving process based on the type of vendor, their EDI capabilities and their historical accuracy and performance.
