Lenexa, Kan.: Balance Innovations will implement its VeriBalance currency management platform and vbInSight corporate reporting software across The United Family of stores. The solutions will combine to provide United with improved currency management at all levels of its organization across the five banners it operates: United Supermarkets, Market Street, Amigos, Albertsons Market and United Express.
“The VeriBalance platform will give us better corporate visibility into our cash and store operations,” said Mandy Tomlin, controller for United. “At our stores, the consistent, automated procedures will maximize the efficiency of currency operations, creating more time for serving our customers.”
VeriBalance will reduce store-level bookkeeping time by more than four hours per day in each store and ensure consistent practices across the United enterprise. It also enables United to more fully automate their front-end operations, creating more throughput at registers and freeing up time for associates to focus on the customer experience.
vbInSight provides United corporate users with greater visibility of store activity and performance with real-time alerts and customizable reports. This comprehensive view appeals to United because it means they can move to lane accountability, reducing labor while efficiently governing cashier and bookkeeper activity to ensure compliance. These tools will also enable them to identify and address issues faster without time-consuming manual research or costly travel to investigate.
“United is taking control of its currency management to improve operations and serve its customers even better,” said Darren Knipp, president and CEO of Balance Innovations. “We’re thrilled they’ve chosen our solutions to help them do that.”
