TAMPA, Fla. - ADC Inc., provider of data communication technology to the supermarket industry, has licensed its InterScale scales management system to Food Lion, a subsidiary of Delhaize America.
InterScale uses a company's network to transit future-dated item, price and label information to scales and barcode label printers in all perishable departments. The system works with all scales regardless of manufacturer and is used by more than 60 supermarket companies and 3,000 individual stores nationwide and in seven countries.
"Food Lion has the ideal retail environment to speed implementation, which has already resulted in a tangible return on investment. As with all of our relationships, ADC is focused on helping Food Lion gain bottom line results in their fresh food operations," said ADC president Steve Loveridge.
Food Lion chose InterScale because of its flexibility and its ability to communicate with different devices, according to Tom Weimer, store systems applications development manager for Food Lion. "We have a mixture of scales in 1,200 stores and InterScale offers us the ability to communicate with all of them without having to modify them or change them in any way," he said.
