Albertsons Joins Uccnet

LAWRENCEVILLE, N.J. - Albertsons will begin implementing UCCnet's item registration and data synchronization services for its more than 2,300 retail stores in 31 states nationwide, according to officials from both companies. UCCnet says Boise-based Albertsons is one of the first major U.S. food retailers to implement its registration and synchronization services.

Albertsons will begin implementation in 2003 and will issue communications requesting that its suppliers join UCCnet and prepare to synchronize item information. The company plans to provide information in the near future to its partners on the benefits of UCCnet and directions on how to subscribe.

"Albertsons is dedicated to partnering with UCCnet and our suppliers in this industry-changing technology solution," said Larry Johnston, Albertsons c.e.o. and board chairman. "UCCnet global registration and synchronization services will enable us with the integrated data to manage our supply chain effectively as we build our growth momentum in an increasingly competitive marketplace."

"We welcome Albertsons and look forward to the leadership that their executive team will provide," said Glenn DuBois, e.v.p./c.o.o., UCCnet. "We are pleased to be a partner of Albertsons and we expect to jointly take significant cost out of the retail supply chain for all participants in the UCCnet community."

Albertsons said the services would enable it to streamline the collection of item data from their suppliers by using UCCnet's GLOBALregistry as a single source to provide supplier and product information to all departments within the company.
