United Supermarkets will implement Lenexa, Kansas-based Balance Innovations' VeriBalance currency management solution and vbInSight corporate reporting software across its namesake and four other banners: Market Street, Amigos, Albertsons Market and United Express.
VeriBalance will reduce store-level bookkeeping time by more than four hours per day in each store and ensure consistent practices across the United enterprise. It also will enable United to more fully automate its front end operations, creating more throughput at registers and freeing up time for associates to focus on customer service.
Meanwhile, vbInSight will provide United corporate users with greater visibility of store activity and performance via real-time alerts and customizable reports. This will allow United to move to lane accountability, reducing labor while efficiently governing cashier and bookkeeper activity to ensure compliance. These tools will also enable United to identify and address issues faster without time-consuming manual research or costly travel to investigate.
United Supermarkets LLC operates 37 stores in west Texas, the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area and New Mexico. It is a wholly owned subsidiary of Boise, Idaho-based Albertsons Cos. Inc.
