A Midwest grocery chain, Cub—as in Consumers United for Buying—had been making strides, but with COVID-19 and other factors raising the stakes, it reached out to Luke Anderson in September 2020. A veteran tech boss and consultant who had plied his skills in other industries, he soon recognized that a grocery presents challenges uncommon to other retail.
“The grocery business as a whole has lagged behind, not just from a technological standpoint, but from a user-adoption perspective,” he tells Toggle Magazine in September after celebrating his first year as CIO at the company headquarters in Stillwater, Minnesota.
“ECRS’ CATAPULT® system will be the point of sale at Cub and Shoppers, as well as the foundation of the price hosting system. It will perform functions such as item and pricing data, as well as managing and hosting software administration. For seven straight years, ECRS has ranked first among grocers in Retail Info Systems Software Leaderboard, a tracking of the retail industry’s top tech vendors,” Anderson adds.
