United Supermarkets Leverage Modern Automation

Stonebranch is pleased to be working with United Supermarkets, LLC as they continue their success in a highly competitive grocery industry.

Atlanta, GA | January 29, 2014 - Stonebranch Inc., a leading provider of modern workload automation solutions, is pleased to be working with United Supermarkets, LLC as they continue their success in a highly competitive grocery industry. This partnership enables United Supermarkets, LLC to leverage modern automation to enable a more flexible and agile data processing capability that would allow for self-service access by a variety of users in both technical and non-technical roles.

"Universal Automation Center™ allowed us to utilize our strained resources, in the way they exist today, while still maintaining and handling issues as they came up," says United Supermarkets Software Development Manager Jeff Bridges. "Stonebranch was the only vendor that provided an honest assessment of the effort required to complete the transition. Completing the transition in four weeks is a testament to the gifted experts on the Stonebranch Services team."

Advancing their automation capabilities to better support their stores meant moving from an older version of a 90's era job scheduling solution, where they had outgrown the existing capabilities and had difficulties upgrading to a newer version. When determining the right solution for their needs, three products were evaluated. It was the architecture, usability, and vendor-trust, which resulted in United Supermarkets choosing Stonebranch's Universal Automation Center™.

United Supermarkets is now seeing fewer errors in their processing and they have strengthened some of the business processes, utilizing the advanced capabilities within Universal Automation Center. They are now able to efficiently organize their workload processes and perform maintenance in a much simpler manner, utilizing the modern, dynamic event processing, automatic notifications and other actions.
