TAMPA, Fla. (August 18, 2022) — Applied Data Corporation (ADC), global pioneer of total store operations, announces an extensive rebranding effort to reflect the company’s accelerated vision and growth. Upshop promises to deliver a simplified, smarter, more connected platform for retailers and associates by synchronizing Fresh, Packaged, and eCommerce operations.
"Upshop provides our customers with a fresher experience while making our store teams more efficient at the same time."
ADC has been a visionary in Fresh operations for over thirty years in 28,000+ grocery and convenience locations. In 2019, the company re-architected from on-premise to cloud-based SaaS as a first step in driving associate usability and adoption. This past year has seen eCommerce fulfillment orchestration and expiration date management capability integrations to pioneer a singular platform for total store operations.
"Upshop is our company's vision for a connected store," says Shamus Hines, Founder and CEO of Upshop. "Point solutions have flooded the industry—and shoppers have high expectations of retail; they want an experience. There's no way to have the best shopping experience when the retailer is using upwards of 40 solutions on average. A total store platform that syncs up end-to-end not only streamlines operations for the retailer, but makes the experience simpler, smarter, and more connected for employees and shoppers. There's no more critical time than now for retailers to double-down on tech that benefits the total store."
"AFS chose Upshop because it enables our store teams to focus on fresh," said Associated Food Stores Systems and Integration Director, Greg Welling. "Upshop provides our customers with a fresher experience while making our store teams more efficient at the same time. The combination is a win-win that drives customer loyalty and improves AFS store success."
Most recently, Upshop has experienced significant growth implementing solutions to sync up the entire Fresh perimeter. Leading grocery and convenience retailers are rapidly innovating systems, demanding technology which can forecast and order fresh accurately, every time, while decreasing associate time spent on kitchen math, food operations and order management.
