Kum & Go Picks ADC for Fresh Food Efficiencies

WEST DES MOINES, Iowa — To promote growth of its fresh food operation and create efficiencies, Kum & Go LC has selected and has begun to implement Applied Data Corp.’s (ADC) C-Pack, C-Pack+ and Label Print Manager software.

Kum & Go produces a variety of fresh food items in store, including breakfast items, sandwiches and pizzas, and the chain was looking for alternatives to the paper-based systems it had 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 foodservice at Kum & Go. “We also 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.”

Kum & Go is rolling out ADC’s C-Pack and C-Pack+ software to more than 150 c-stores in 2015, and it will continue the rollout through 2016 as the convenience-store chain continues to expand its foodservice program.

“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.

Applied Data Corp. (ADC) specializes in the development of data-management solutions for the supermarket, grocery and fresh-food industries.

Based in West Des Moines, Iowa, family-owned convenience-store retailer Kum & Go has more than 430 stores in 11 states: Iowa, Arkansas, Colorado, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota and Wyoming. In addition to a wide selection of merchandise, Kum & Go provides customers a proprietary mix of products under the Hiland brand. Other proprietary product offerings include Java Ridge Premium Coffee, Napa Creek and Sea Ridge wines, Go Fresh Market sandwiches and Nuclear energy drinks.
