Arm-in-arm with its newest partner, Harps Food Stores is elevating its operational efficiency and enhancing customer satisfaction. The retailer will be tapping Upshop to implement its inventory and replenishment optimization solutions.
“At Harps, we are committed to providing our customers with the freshest and most satisfying shopping experience,” David Ganoung, Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer at Harps, stated. “Upshop is pivotal in achieving this goal by optimizing our inventory and ensuring that the products our customers want are always available.”
The retailer recognizes the importance of always having the right products available in the right quantities and at the right time. To address this critical need, the retailer sought a platform capable of monitoring demand signals, forecasting quantities accurately, generating precise orders, and ensuring optimal product availability—which is where Upshop comes into play. Upshop’s automated replenishment product, Magic™, emerged as the ideal solution.
According to a press release, Magic offers a comprehensive suite of capabilities, enabling Harps to optimize inventory and ordering for both center store and fresh departments. By leveraging Upshop’s total store software capabilities, Harps will streamline its merchandising operations, enhance its IT footprint, and consolidate various functions into a single, all-in-one solution.
Key benefits for Harps include:
“Our platform is designed to deliver more with less—more sales, more margin, with less on-hand inventory and time spent by associates managing orders,” said Shamus Hines, Chief Executive Officer of Upshop. “We’re proud to support Harps Food Stores in achieving these objectives.”
