IN-DEPTH DATA, MARKET INSIGHTS
A key advantage of working with McLane is the depth of our information resources and market insights. Our merchandising strategies are all based on proven results, not marketing budgets. With one of the industry’s most robust data warehouses, we are able to use an aggregated class of trade-specific data and compare and contrast these findings with multiple syndicated data sources. With this powerful analytic approach, you can compare your sales and product movement with that of other trends on a national, regional and local level, as well as by individual stores and specific items to determine your best-mix product scenarios and identify key selling opportunities.
Technology solutions are designed to help you buy better, sell smarter and profit more. As a grocery retailer, dealing with thousands of SKUs, dozens of technology applications and various front- and back-office accounting systems can be a never-ending challenge. Fortunately, our dedicated team of IT professionals is ready to help. Not only do we provide a broad range of custom applications, but we also help ensure that they work with the enterprise applications—such as SAP, PDI, Radiant and many others.
