Symphony GOLD, a global leader in delivering ROI for retailers, manufacturers, and wholesalers using customer insights to drive execution, today announced that Hilo, Hawaii-based KTA Super Stores has finalized upgrading Symphony GOLD to the latest software version. The new capabilities including GOLD Direct Store Delivery (DSD) and GOLD Invoice Reconciliation are the first step in KTA’s incorporation of the latest enhanced version of Symphony GOLD’s Merchandise Management system, which is planned to be implemented across all of its island stores.
Founded in 1916, KTA Super Stores is a six-store supermarket chain with more than 800 associates serving the residents of Hawai‘i island. For over 95 years, KTA Super Stores has been committed to their founder’s philosophy – “a commitment to humbly serve the people of our community.”
“The addition of Direct Store Delivery and Invoice Reconciliation helps KTA both expand its options for customer shopping and streamline its financial processes,” said Lon Taniguchi, VP, Information Systems of KTA Super Stores. “Looking forward, KTA anticipates that the rollout of the latest Symphony GOLD Merchandise Management and Master Data Management solution across all six grocery stores will make us the grocery of choice for the island of Hawaii.”
“As an existing Symphony GOLD customer who is advancing to our latest Merchandise Management offering, KTA is convinced by the benefits and advantages of our solution for their retail grocery business – for both current and future business needs,” said Jyrki Ihanainen, Vice President, Symphony GOLD.
