Tesco’s distribution and replenishment systems will be upgraded following the renewal of its contract with Sopra Steria, which provides support and development for the retailer’s IT services, including distribution, stock replenishment, product, pricing and payroll systems.
The distribution and replenishment systems deliver stock, including fresh produce, into shops and into the hands of customers every day.
Atul Bhardwaj, CIO of technology products at Tesco, said: “Years of working in close collaboration with Sopra Steria has resulted in a strong relationship built on trust, shared values and unparalleled knowledge of the business.
“Sopra Steria has consistently been a trusted extension of our team in delivery of ongoing operations, while constantly working with us to challenge, add value and improve the status quo.”
The three-year renewal extends a partnership dating back to 1985.
