HighJump Partners with Gimme DSD for Retail Execution of the Future

Partnership creates industry’s only device-agnostic DEX for big three operating systems for grocery direct store delivery

MINNEAPOLIS – February 20, 2019 - HighJump, a global provider of supply chain solutions, today announces its partnership with unattended retail and technology provider Gimme DSD. This strategic partnership enables DEX across Android, Windows and iOS for the first time, empowering mobile delivery for food and beverage companies with the next-generation tools of the connected and automated supply chain of the future.

Consumer demand for delivery convenience, speed, choice and adaptability is on the rise. With this comes greater complexity for the supply chain, particularly for food and beverage companies. Faced with increasingly stringent requirements, it's no longer enough to simply fulfill demand. Companies must anticipate it, predict it and make smarter, faster decisions. HighJump’s partnership with Gimme DSD helps make this a reality.

Combining the capabilities of HighJump with Gimme DSD turns challenges with DEX into opportunities for organizations of all sizes. The partnership includes HighJump’s software solution for management and execution of direct store delivery, OmniTech Sales, and the wireless DEX adapter from Gimme DSD, the Gimme Key. With Gimme DSD, HighJump supports transactions for all major mobile operating systems without the need to charge the DEX device. This provides a truly device-agnostic and cable-free approach to perishable goods delivery for grocery. Staff is empowered with their device of choice, assuring they always have the insight and ability to manage vendor relationships at their fingertips. HighJump also guarantees customer and industry compliance, such as FMSA, and provides a solid, flexible foundation for technology upgrades. Food and beverage companies can truly own their distribution channels - properly tracking and handling perishable goods to meet customer expectations and enhance profitability.

“HighJump has a deep understanding of the perishable goods industry, with decades of customer success in retail execution,” said Derek Curtis, vice president of sales at HighJump. “We’re truly an extension of our customers’ teams – providing the service and innovation to meet their unique needs and achieve their business goals today and beyond.”

“HighJump OmniTech Sales provides perishable food manufacturers the tools they need to optimize their retail execution strategies,” said Alan Kloss, vice president of enterprise sales at Gimme DSD. “By leveraging the Gimme Key with this, field users can select the mobile platform of their choice, meet supplier compliance requirements, and never have to worry about forgetting to recharge DEX batteries again. The team at Gimme DSD has worked with HighJump to bring a sophisticated and flexible solution to the perishable food distribution market that ensures maximum efficiency.”
