Grocery giant streamlines buying processes


Albertsons Companies is taking steps to help its buyers add new products to store shelves.

By adopting an online platform from RangeMe, buyers will gain an efficient way to discover innovative new products and manage the inbound product submission process. The solution supports buyers’ and suppliers’ efforts in finding relevant and trending products for customers, who then benefit from a broader selection of items to choose from in the aisle, the chain said.

"RangeMe makes it easy for suppliers to show us their products and company capabilities so our national sales managers can ensure a good fit for our customers and company before moving forward,” said Pat Dennis, group VP, general merchandising/health and beauty care merchandising.

Albertsons will use the solution to scale its retail buying efforts in its general merchandise and health and beauty categories throughout all of its 19 banners.

"This new technology directly benefits our customers and employees alike," said Mark Panzer, Albertsons’ senior VP of pharmacy health and wellness. "By implementing the platform, our teams can quickly locate and stock shelves with products that our customers want, like organic health and beauty products or local items or brands. It saves us time and money, which is passed on to our shoppers.”
