Kroger Installs DSD Software


The Kroger Company is collaborating with Itasca Consulting Group of Minneapolis, a software developer to develop and install systems in almost all Kroger stores including twenty banners in 35 states.  The system will facilitate and monitor direct-store delivery by vendors, specifically for dairy, bread and beverages.


Chris Harris Director of Asset Protection and Safety for Kroger stated, “Itasca software will be essential to provide improved function and simplify processes.”  As quoted in Supermarket News Jeff Kennedy president of Itasca Retail stated, “Our system creates a closed-loop process from order creation through receiving allowing retailers to measure vendor service levels.”


Itasca has gained considerable support from the retail segment including SpartanNash, Sobeys, Weis Markets, IGA and HAC Inc. the operator of Piggly Wiggly, Food World and other banners.
