Southeastern Grocers Inc. has chosen Opterus OpsCenter as its centralized communications solution.
“Southeastern Grocers was looking for a solution for our stores that would provide scalable communication, planning and administrative features that met our current needs and would nimbly evolve with us into the future,” noted Jennifer Short, VP of store support at the Jacksonville, Fla.-based retailer. “Opterus offers that solution on a reliable technology platform and has proven to be a great business partner.”
