Tampa, Florida (PRWEB) January 24, 2013
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 Carlie C’s, a 16 store grocery company headquartered in Dunn, North Carolina, has selected and implemented ADC’s InterScale Scales Management Software system.
Carlie C’s, a member of the Independent Grocer’s Alliance (IGA), selected ADC’s InterScale software to host data to and from the scales in their fresh food departments. InterScale provides Carlie C’s with the ability to manage all scales data centrally, including event batch creation and management, sending network tests, re-loading scales and pulling back data for comparison reporting.
“InterScale has helped to reduce the time it takes to complete in-store tasks, including sending network tests and price adjustments,” said Rick Jones, IT Director at Carlie C’s. “With InterScale, we also have visibility into everything that was produced at the scale and can compare that to what has been sold. InterScale has also allowed our choices of manufacturers to be expanded thus saving money on purchasing equipment”
InterScale is one of three software systems that comprise InterStore, ADC’s Fresh Item Management (FIM) software suite. The other two systems are: NutriGen Recipe Manager, which provides interactive recipes for store operators for items produced or finished in stores, and the P-Cubed Production Manager, which automates, manages and tracks production in the fresh departments of grocery stores.
“With InterScale installed as their FIM foundation, Carlie C’s can now add additional modules within InterStore, as their needs grow,” said Steve Loveridge, ADC’s CEO. “InterStore helps our clients, such as Carlie C’s, make their fresh departments more profitable by better managing the inventory at their stores and providing more accurate information to enterprise systems, such as merchandising and supply chain.”
About Carlie C’s
Carlie C’s was founded in 1961 by Carlie C. McLamb and his wife, Joyce with the motto of “Hometown Pride”.In 1962 moved the store to Dunn, where the location was expanded in 1965, and underwent 2 more expansions over the next seven years. By 1983, the family opened two more stores, but a fire destroyed the original store in 1984. Though the business was uninsured, the McLamb’s, with the help of local businesses, employees and friends, reopened it a short time later as an IGA store. The purchase of two more stores in Dunn brought the chain to five stores in 1988. The growth continued into Angier, Benson, Coats, Durham, Erwin, Fayetteville, Goldsboro, Garner, Hope Mills and Lillington, and today Carlie C’s has 16 stores located in five counties. Carlie C’s is known for their hometown philosophy, quality meats, and friendly service.
Since 1989, Applied Data Corporation (ADC) has specialized in the development of data-management solutions for the supermarket, grocery and fresh-food industries. The InterScale scales management software developed by ADC is a ‘device-neutral’ global technology leader for host management of supermarket barcode-printing scales and printers. The InterScale system is a member of ADC's InterStore suite of fresh applications which also includes: NutriGen recipe management and P-Cubed shrink management, fresh inventory management, perishable production planning and demand-driven ordering.
