Revionics Price Optimization Selected By Fairway Markets

Optimize with Confidence  

Premier Grocer to Deploy Price Optimization Throughout All Locations, Including New Retail Locations

ROSEVILLE, CA and NEW YORK, NY – April 26, 2011 – Revionics, Inc., a leading provider in retail life cycle price optimization solutions, today announced that Fairway Market, one of the nation's most successful food retailers, has  selected  the Revionics Price Optimization solution for base pricing.

Fairway Market’s current size and future growth plans require a price management and optimization system to manage the growth across all products and categories, which Revionics offers. As part of its strategic growth plan, Fairway has defined its category roles and Key Value Items (KVIs), which Revionics will help monitor, manage and optimize.  

“There were several reasons we selected Revionics’ Price Optimization over other retail pricing solutions,” said Kevin McDonnell, Chief Merchandising Officer Fairway Market.  “It is robust and easier to use than other price optimization products, and we believe Revionics will truly partner with us to achieve our strategic, operational and financial objectives.”

Pricing optimization is intended to allow Fairway Market to better serve customers at all retail locations, and improve the profitability of Fairway’s grocery stores.  Revionics’ Software as a Service (SaaS) model provides the agility, the fastest time-to-value, and the best economics for Fairway.  Unlike other similar price optimization solutions, Revionics will also be better able to manage pricing for perishable products.

“We are very pleased that Fairway Market recognized our unique optimization advantages and selected the Revionics Price Optimization solution,” remarked Marc Hafner, president and CEO, Revionics. “Our Optimize with Confidence approach ensures improved retailer performance and fastest time-to-value.”

Initially, Fairway’s objective is to properly define the category roles and automate its price maintenance.  Price optimization tailored for each store will be the final step.
