Jake’s Finer Foods Goes Live with NCR Power Delivery Software for Android Mobile Devices

Software solution gives foodservice distributor competitive advantage by enabling them to reduce costs, collect payments faster and improve customer service

NEW YORK, January 13, 2015 – NCR Corporation, the global leader in consumer transaction technologies, announced today that Jake’s Finer Foods, a broadline foodservice distributor serving Texas and Louisiana, is using NCR Power Delivery to more completely automate the process of foodservice delivery.

The solution incorporates ruggedized Android* OS devices with a powerful software component that eliminates their previous paper-based method and optimizes all of the processes around the last mile of the supply chain. The addition of NCR Power Delivery comes after years of Jake’s using NCR Power Enterprise and NCR Power Warehouse software solutions for other areas of their business.

“The addition of NCR Power Delivery was a natural extension of our existing relationship with NCR, and is consistent with our strategy to improve the business through technology investments that maintain our standards for delivering only the highest-quality meats, produce and restaurant supplies to the finest restaurants and institutions in the region,” says Jason Blackshear at Jake’s Finer Foods. “We’re thrilled with how rapidly this latest software project went from signing the contract to conducting a trial, and then implementation for our entire fleet.”

NCR’s Power Delivery uses mobile technology to verify the delivery of goods, capture signatures and provide paperless invoices to the customer. Other key features include:

  • Eliminating paperwork costs for printing invoices and DOT checklists for the drivers
  • Increasing inventory accuracy by confirming exactly what was delivered and when
  • Reducing labor costs spent reconciling invoices and adjusting inventory
  • Increasing cash flow with cleaner more precise invoices
  • Compatible with not only ruggedized Android devices but also consumer grade hardware as well as many legacy scanners operating on Windows mobile software

“By integrating the Android-based mobile software solution with Jake’s existing on-board computers (OBCs), their drivers have a single login for both their OBC needs and for using NCR Power Delivery,” says Todd Michaud, global vice president and general manager, Global Enterprise, Merchandising and Supply Chain Solutions at NCR. ”Jake’s specializes in high-end custom meats so it’s very important for them to verify delivery of these center-plate items and ensure the highest quality and delivering exceptional service to their clients.”

NCR’s Global Enterprise, Merchandising and Supply Chain group focuses on creating a single, centralized data integration and operational platform that helps both retailers and distributors of fast moving goods lower costs and increase revenues.
