Eby-Brown & Skupos Partner to Help Retailers Boost Tobacco Business
NAPERVILLE, Ill. — Eby-Brown Co. LLC is teaming up with Skupos Inc. to provide convenience stores with cheaper pricing through multi-pack discount programs and fully automated scan data reporting.
The companies expect to grow volume and drive revenue for Eby-Brown's customer network.
"Skupos' software possesses the reporting capabilities our retailers need in order to compete effectively," said Jode Bunce, executive vice president at Eby-Brown.
The partnership will allow Eby-Brown customers to improve their business through automated participation in tobacco scan data reporting and multi-pack discount reporting, according to Skupos.
