GasAmerica also signed with Nexxus Group GasAmerica to make it the exclusive provider of scan based trading programs for its newspaper category. GasAmerica operates 86 stores in Ohio and Indiana. The program begins on Aug. 29, 2011.
More than 150 other c-stores operated by Western Refining Southwest, and 44 outlets with Fastrac Markets signed deals with Nexxus recently.
Scan based trading is when suppliers maintain ownership of inventory within retailers’ warehouses or stores until items are scanned at the point of sale. Nexxus Group program solutions allow retailers category visibility via scan based trading and centralized payment platforms with one point of contact for direct store delivered vendors, eliminating cash payments, consolidating accounts payable while delivering customer service.
