Lubbock, Texas-based Truno, an integrated retail technology solutions provider, has entered into a partnership with e-commerce software provider My Cloud Grocer. The companies say the partnership leverages Truno’s TruCommerce platform to provide brick-and-mortar grocers the opportunity to compete in the online grocery space.
TruCommerce is a cloud-based bridge connecting My Cloud Grocer to point-of-sale software and back-office solutions by delivering data between the systems using a standard API (application programming interface). The company says the result is a connection of all endpoints, ensuring loyalty information, data master files, item files and discounts and promotions are flowing to every part of a retailer’s business.
“The greatest pain point for retailers in adopting e-commerce today is the cost that comes with integrating new and existing systems in order to realize a flow of data,” said Anthony Presley, Truno chief products officer. “Together, Truno and My Cloud Grocer have eliminated this obstacle, making the industry’s best-in-class e-commerce solution more accessible to independent retailers in this competitive landscape.”
My Cloud Grocer is designed exclusively for grocers for click-and-collect and online delivery. Retailers are realizing lower operational costs and a 15 percent increase in sales after adoption, the company says. Features include:
- 0.2 seconds average page response time;
- shop-by-recipe, digital circulars and quick re-order;
- integration with POS, credit card processor and loyalty program through TruCommerce;
- customizable, white-label solution; and
- leveraging analytics with reporting on shopper engagement, employee fulfillment and delivery.
“Integration with TruCommerce enables My Cloud Grocer to offer a robust omnichannel digital grocery experience without the need of complex integrations with each individual POS system, therefore significantly decreasing the time it takes to set up an online shop,” said Dan Dashevsky, My Cloud Grocer chief operating officer. “Truno’s incredible team brings to the table years of experience in retail technology solutions. Our partnership will help both prominent grocery chains and single stores grow their sales, increase lifetime customer value and decrease overhead costs.”
