(OTCBB: PCYG), a leading provider of inventory and labor optimization solutions for retailers, today announced that Ms. Linda Heft, a highly experienced senior retail industry executive, has joined the company to manage business processes for its Supply Chain Profit Link (SCPL) category management application.
Supply Chain Profit Link has grown from a customer base of two retailers and three categories in January 2007 to seven retailers and twenty-one categories today. This faster than expected acceleration in growth necessitates Park City Group to create a position where the primary role is to scale the significant increase in demand.

Ms. Heft most recently served as Director of Retail Operations for Valassis Communications/ NCH Marketing, Inc. overseeing implementation and training for the company’s eSettlement trade promotion solutions. Prior experience includes several positions within the Kroger/Fred Meyer, Inc. organization supervising IT projects and merchandising functions.
“Because of the enormous growth and accelerating demand that we are experiencing in Supply Chain Profit Link, there was a need to focus on scaling the business as quickly as possible while remaining consistent with the quality of services and actionable insights our customers have come to expect from Park City Group. Linda’s vast experience and reputation for quality supervision of complex implementations precedes her. Her addition to our team certainly makes her an excellent staffing decision that will reflect well on both Park City Group and our customers,” said Randall K. Fields, Park City Group’s Chief Executive Officer. “The addition of Linda Heft will insure that our impeccable reputation for superior products and customer results continues.”
A graduate of Portland State University with a degree in Project Management, Ms. Heft will have offices in Portland, Oregon and Park City, Utah.
