Retailer gains confidence in delivering the right products, in the right amount, at the right time—and the knowledge that they could deliver fresh to customers each and every day.
This major regional grocer operates 250 retail stores, plus grocery, frozen food and perishable distribution centers out of its headquarters in Matthews, North Carolina.
Producing the right amount of fresh food each day was a guessing game for this regional grocer; one that resulted in missed sales opportunities and high amounts of waste. Deli and Bakery associates didn’t have historical sales data or store-specific forecasts, making it difficult to match inventory orders and food preparation to accurate customer demand.
Production Planning from Upshop collects sales data at the item transaction level, so associates can see exactly what is sold in their store and when. Now, the grocer can track and forecast fresh food sales daily, making preparation management tasks intuitive and far less wasteful.
This grocer majorly increased fresh food forecasting accuracy and significantly impacted waste with the Production Planning solution: unit shrink dropped 25% on production plan items and average perishable shrink plunged 36% in the Deli and Bakery departments.
