Dansk Supermarked to Deploy Scales Management Software
Dansk Supermarked Gruppen (DSG) plans to deploy scales management software for its Føtex supermarkets and Bilka hypermarkets, as part of an in-store food production (ISFP) system to help improve the gross margins in the two chains’ fresh food departments.
The retailer is working with Tampa, Fla.-based Applied Data Corp.’s InterScale Scales Management Software system.
DSG is Denmark's largest retail group, consisting of seven retail chains and department stores. “Implementing ADC's InterScale is the first phase of our ISFP system,” said Alan Jensen, IT director at DSG. “InterScale communicates directly with all of our hosted in-store devices, including barcode labeling scales and printers. We believe an ISFP system will help us improve our fresh department operations and, therefore, correct any margin reducing practices."
With InterScale, Dansk can manage all scales data centrally, including event batch creation and management, sending network tests, re-loading scales and pulling back data for comparison reporting. Additionally, InterScale provides insight into what has been produced versus what has been sold, further helping to improve fresh department efficiencies.
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.
Dansk Supermarked operates about 1300 supermarkets and department stores under the Føtex, Bilka, Salling and Netto banners.
