Marsh Supermarkets, Inc. has deployed a new technology platform developed to reduce operating expenses as part of the company’s overall sustainability strategy.
The grocer installed the Sustainability Resource Planning (SRP) platform from Minneapolis-based Verisae. “This is a classic win-win-win situation,” said Phoebe Miller, director of facilities for Indianapolis-based Marsh, which operates more than 100 supermarkets in Indiana and Ohio. “We have seen hard dollar savings across a number of different business processes. The payback was immediate, and as important, our business is now on a more sustainable track for the long term. That is good for all of our internal stakeholders, our external customers and our trading partners.”
According to Verisae, utility bill processing allows Marsh representatives to review bill data and charts on energy consumption and spending. Cost reductions are achieved by reducing billing errors associated with incorrectly assessed late fees, disconnect notices, estimated meter-read adjustments, incorrect application of previous payment, and duplicate or overlapping bills. Maintenance automation allows reps to better manage work orders and process invoices, and gain better visibility into their maintenance and repair spend.
Verisae helps measure, manage and reduce equipment and energy costs, including the related business and environmental impacts of carbon emissions.
