Sainsbury’s online sales jump 25%

Supermarket takes on Tesco with technology change

Sainsbury's grew its online sales by a quarter in the three months to 2 October, as the firm continued investing heavily in its supply chain and other systems.

The supermarket said that it had also outgunned arch rivals including Tesco in terms of total sales, with a 2.9 percent increase including in-store revenues.

The online growth was attributable to "continued record levels of service and availability", Sainsbury's said in a statement.

In May, the supermarket had stated specifically that "continued improvements in IT, supply chain and store-picking processes" had helped online growth.

Sainsbury's expanded its online business last year when it started selling 8,000 non-food products via the internet in July. It is also trialling a 'click and collect' service in 10 stores from May 2010, allowing people to order online and collect in-store.

Earlier this year, Sainsbury's implemented the Spectrum Infrastructure Management solution from CA to support its online shopping supply operations. The software is intended to promptly notify the supermarket of any online ordering problems.

The supermarket also has a five-year deal with IBM to manage its supply chain systems.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
