Schnucks has partnered with Procurant, a cloud-based software company, to implement its Procurant One technology platform.

The technology will help the grocer manage its perishables purchasing, produce inspections and source-to-pay order management.

“Perishable goods are critical to our success, and the complexity of our business requires systems that are aligned with our goal to nourish our customers’ lives and work within a modern, fast-moving supply chain,” said Mike Tipton, VP of produce and floral at Schnuck Markets Inc.

“From day one, Procurant has been a great partner and has worked closely with our team to bring this new system online, smoothly and efficiently.”

The Procurant system, a web-based procurement and food safety platform, connects all suppliers and stakeholders across the perishable goods supply chain. The system improves the speed, efficiency and reliability of order management in a critical category for retail grocers.

In addition, the Procurant Inspect application, used on mobile devices by inspectors in Schnucks distribution centers, links live inspection data to the purchasing process for buyers and suppliers.

“It is great to be working with Schnucks and their network of perishable goods suppliers, and we look forward to a long and productive relationship,” said Procurant CEO Eric Peters.

“It takes trust and confidence in a partnership to move off of an existing system and onto any new technology, and our team takes that trust very seriously as we help Schnucks transition to a modern digital procurement platform.”
