We saw a reduction in shrink compared to the control stores and significantly reduced our cost per label. These results gave us the confidence to move forward with a full implementation," said Greg Tornberg, Vice President of Food Serivce at Kum & Go
Tampa, Florida (PRWEB) October 06, 2015
Applied Data Corporation (ADC), a leading provider of Fresh Item Management (FIM), recipe management and scales management software to the grocery retail and food service industries, announces that Kum & Go, a 430 store convenience chain headquartered in West Des Moines, Iowa, has selected and begun implementation of ADC’s C-Pack, C-Pack+ and Label Print Manager software.
Kum & Go produces a variety of fresh food items in-stores, including breakfast items, sandwiches and pizzas. To promote growth of their fresh food operations, and create efficiencies for associates, the chain looked for alternatives to the paper-based systems they’d been using to manage inventory tracking, forecasting and shrink.
Kum & Go selected ADC’s C-Pack and C-Pack+ software bundles to capture shrink, provide accurate forecasting for fresh food production and manage perpetual and physical inventory. Additionally, C-Pack+ includes ADC’s NutriGen Recipe Manager, enabling Kum & Go to calculate costs, monitor actual margins of products sold and generate nutrition facts from recipes. Ingredient, nutrition facts and allergens are automatically sent to the label printer, ensuring all information in each recipe is also on the label.
“After an extensive, six month pilot in multiple stores running ADC’s software, we realized a net gain in sales greater than similar control stores that were set up to measure the effect of the pilot,” said Greg Tornberg, Vice President of Food Service at Kum & Go. “We also saw a reduction in shrink compared to he control stores and significantly reduced our cost per label. These results gave us the confidence to move forward with a full implementation.”
ADC’s C-Pack and C-Pack+ software is being rolled out to more than 150 stores in 2015 and the roll out will continue through 2016, as Kum & Go’s food service program continues to expand.
“Kum & Go is the first convenience store chain utilizing ADC’s software to improved fresh food sales, while reducing perishable waste,” said Steve Loveridge, CEO at ADC. “We are very pleased with Kum & Go’s results and look forward to working with them as they continue to grow their fresh foods program.”
ADC’s C-Pack and C-Pack+ software bundle are designed to improve fresh department operations for convenience store retailers. C-Pack includes P-Cubed Production Manager and P-Cubed Shrink Manager. C-Pack+ includes P-Cubed Physical Inventory Manager, P-Cubed Perpetual Inventory Manager and the NutriGen Recipe Manager.
