Eden Prairie, Minnesota-12 February, 2009. WAND Corporation announced today a collaboration with the UFPC (Unified Foodservice Purchasing Co-op) and KFC on a data warehouse project, called Sales Track. KFC Sales Track is a consolidated reporting tool that allows franchisees to monitor their DMA’s performance and provide enhanced national promotion forecasting.
WAND is currently the only independent POS system provider engaged with the UFPC. “This is the culmination of nearly two years of focused effort”, said Greg Perrill, Chief Operating Officer of WAND Corporation. “We are eager to help KFC franchisees improve sales through greater transaction level analysis provided by this solution”, added Perrill. The launch of Sales Track was announced by the UFPC at the 2010 AKFCF Convention, held last week in Las Vegas.
The benefits of the WAND relationship with UFPC and the Sales Track project include: better transaction analysis, enhanced national promotion forecasting, test market data, assistance with obsolescence avoidance, and help to ensure supply. Operators can view their DMA’s performance and also view benchmarking data based on a store’s classification, ethnicity, pricing structure, etc. Data feeds are automatic and are collected by the UFPC.
Unified Foodservice Purchasing Co-op (UFPC) is the exclusive supply chain management organization for Yum! Brands, Inc. and its five national restaurant systems: A&W, KFC, Long John Silver’s, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell.
