Tampa, Florida (PRWEB) December 19, 2012
Applied Data Corporation (ADC), a leading provider of fresh-item, recipe-management, and scale data hosting software to the grocery-retail and food-service industries, announces that Doc’s Food Stores Inc. of Bixby, Oklahoma has selected and implemented InterScale, ADC’s scales management system.
When looking for a scales management provider, centralization and standardization were important factors to Doc’s Food Stores Inc. InterScale hosts future-dated item, price and label information from one ‘scale neutral’ system at Doc’s Food Stores Inc. headquarters, allowing them to centrally manage all of their in-store scales, regardless of brand and type.
“With InterScale, we are able to centrally control our store scales, including pricing and the ingredient text printed on scale labels,” said Jim Brown, President of Doc's Food Stores Inc. “InterScale allows our store scales to communicate to a central system at our headquarters, providing us with visibility of what is happening with the scales in our stores.”
In addition to centralized control of their in-store scales, Doc’s Food Stores Inc. wanted to implement InterScale alongside BRdata’s Retail BOSS Host software, that hosts price changes to their Point Of Sale (POS) systems.
“InterScale is tightly integrated with the BRdata Retail BOSS Host system, which resulted in us eliminating 20 hours of in-store scale price maintenance labor per week,” continued Jim Brown. “We are now able to allocate this labor elsewhere in our fresh departments, increasing our store associates productivity and customer service.”
“We are pleased to hear of the labor saving results that Food Stores Inc. has seen by implementing InterScale with BRdata Retail Boss Host, said Steve Loveridge, ADC’s CEO. “We continuously strive to help our clients maximize their investment in ADC software. One of the most important ways to do this is by working with our partners to develop seamless interfaces.”
InterScale is one of the systems in InterStore, ADC’s suite of Fresh Item Management (FIM) software, which helps to increase efficiencies in grocery-retail and food-service industries. The other two systems in InterStore are the NutriGen Recipe Manager and the P-Cubed Production Manager, for production planning, markdowns, cutting and shrink management.
