ROSEVILLE, CAOctober 18, 2011 – Revionics, Inc., the leading provider of retail life cycle price optimization solutions, was presented with a Vendor Partnership Award, by Pamida, a leading regional retailer with 193 stores in 17 states. This prestigious award is given to a select few of Pamida’s vendors, which have demonstrated a strong positive affect on its bottom-line, operations, sales and customer service. In addition, this award recognizes companies for the positive influence they have had on the retailer’s communities that it serves. Pamida presented the award to Revionics at the 2011 Pamida Foundation Charity Event, which had 437 companies contribute close to $1.3 million to help support non-profit organizations in Pamida communities.

Revionics and Pamida started their partnership in 2010 with the implementation of the first of three phases, the Revionics Price Optimization solution. A second phase includes building upon the success they have already achieved and adopting the Revionics Markdown Optimization and Revionics Promotion Optimization solutions in 2012.
