Focal Systems and Connors Group Announce Partnership to Transform Retail Operations

We’ve all been there – you head to the grocery store to pick-up a couple of items and that one item you REALLY wanted isn’t on the shelf.  In the list of frustrations that pain grocery shoppers the most, out-of-stock items is always at the very top.  For grocery retailers, they feel this pain nearly as much as consumers do.  Recent studies show that grocery on-shelf product availability continues to hover in the low 90%’s.  This represents a multi-billion dollar opportunity to the entire grocery industry – the retailers, distributors and manufacturers would all benefit greatly by improving on-shelf product availability.  Even grocers with best-in-class supply chains, workforce scheduling practices, employee training and inventory management systems find themselves battling against on-shelf availability.  Despite all of this technical and analytical horsepower, most grocers can’t crack the on-shelf availability code and the reason for that is simple – grocers don’t know what is actually sitting on their shelves in real-time.  And it is for that reason that we at Connors Group are partnering with Focal Systems and leveraging their focalOS technology to help our grocery customers significantly improve on-shelf availability.
