ATA Retail Services Offers Software Capabilities to Grocers

ATA Retail Services gains software capabilities that drive greater revenue and increased competitiveness for its grocery store customers.

For the leader in impulse merchandising, ATA Retail Services, Tiempo Development began by making fixes and updates in a business-critical supply chain and business management application. As the Tiempo team grew from one to five software engineers and a program manager, nearshore development assignments became ever more strategic and valuable. Today, Tiempo develops mobile functionality that will have a measurable impact on all of the company’s merchandisers across many thousands of customers’ stores across North America.

For ATA Retail Services, partnering with Tiempo to support the impulse merchandising business in a nearshore development model is a very different experience from having worked with other companies. “In my many years in IT, I’ve hired other outsource developers and other technology services, but I’ve never had somebody in a program manager role like I get with Tiempo,” says ATA Retail Services IT Director Mike Fujikawa. “This frees me from many day-to-day, managerial responsibilities. Instead, I can focus more on where I want to head with ATA 2.5 and the other technologies we use, and take our IT in the right direction.”

The rich expertise of the Tiempo software engineers team who perform nearshore development is invaluable in creating ATA Retail’s new software functionalities and making impulse merchandising more profitable. Says Fukikawa, “Tiempo offers a highly experienced group of technologists with a wealth of diverse skills and insights. They understand the advantages of different development tools and technical resources, and they can also contribute from having observed a great variety of innovative business models and processes. This increases the value of Tiempo for us.”
