Technology has been at the forefront of our strategies throughout the last 30 or 40 years and is just one of Maurice's competitive advantages. Our technology strategies include many facets of the company from our b2b webstore and brand new Maurice Mobile Shop App to warehouse operations, merchandising, inventory replenishment, in-store services and more.

DISTRIBUTION, QUALITY CONTROL, ORDER PROCESSING & ORDER ACCURACY
• UCC-128 License Plating: Utilizing Advance Shipper Notice (ASN) technology allows the retailer to scan an external label to identify a carton’s contents. This reduces labor dollars and expedites the product to the sales floor.
• Scanned Receipts & Shipments: All product receipts and shipments are scanned to minimize mis-picks and ensure UPC/SKU integrity and accuracy.
• EDI Automated Order Receiving & Invoicing: Minimizes shipping time and reduces associated costs for the retailer.
DAILY CUSTOMER DATA ANALYSIS
We utilize JDA Space Planning and Diver to analyze our shipments and customer sales data on a daily basis. This data provides the information necessary to properly assort, merchandise and replenish the products supplied by Maurice Sporting Goods.
E-3 technology is a software program designed to effectively manage inventories when thousands of SKUs are involved. This system addresses the unique requirements of store level replenishment allowing Maurice Sporting Goods to get the right items into the stores at the right times. Its ultimate purpose is to increase sales with an optimal inventory level.
