Highlights from the 2018 National Grocers Association Show

Steven MillerArticles

  • From February 11th to February 13th, the ProfitTrax Team had the pleasure of sharing brand-new improvements to ProfitTrax BI at the 2018 National Grocers Association Show. This was a very successful year for the Association and we want to share some highlights with you!
  • Views from the Expo

    Retailers and Vendors alike enjoyed the great turnout for this year’s show. There were over 40 Educational Workshops and the show offered an excellent networking opportunity for Retailers and Vendors. Our ProfitTrax Team met with 22 interested Retailers and 4 Business Partners in 10 Show Floor Hours.

  • Growing Demand for Behavior Modification

    90% of the Retailers we surveyed mentioned the need for synchronized BI Analytics and Best Practice Training in their Stores. Holding Managers accountable to complete StoreWalk Checklists is also a necessity, but a present failure. Our ProfitWalk Action Alert System was a welcome solution to this problem.

  • Less Means More

    Executives have received constant complaints from their Store Teams about the number of Reports they are emailed weekly. The ProfitTrax Platform was praised for integrating many of these reports into one, dynamic reporting system for a one-stop Enterprise Solution serving Operations, Loss Prevention and Merchandising.

  • Window of Opportunity

    Many Operators said that Store Teams have a slim Window of Opportunity to correct negative performance. Failing to do so results in exponential consequences. To streamline Manager workload and keep the focus on Customer Service, ProfitTrax provides higher visibility into POS Sales Data, Shrink Loss Data and Out of Stock Tracking.

  • Two Paths Converge

    Larry Miller – President of ProfitTrax – and Kim Eskew – President of Harp’s Food Stores – shared similar beginnings in Grocery, but their courses diverged in the 90’s when Larry began Trax Software while Kim rose to lead Harp’s Food Stores. The NGA Show gave them time to catch-up and share ideas for the future. 

  • Common Pains for Retailers of All Sizes

    Supermarket Grocers of all sizes are encountering similar P+L problems, including excessive Shrink Loss from Operations Inefficiencies, Profit Erosion, and Standards for Out of Stock Reporting. ProfitTrax helps Managers to exceed P+L objectives by attacking these issues.

There were many great takeaways from the 2018 National Grocers Association Show in Las Vegas. Did you have a different perspective on the Highlights of the show?
