Jungle Jim's International Market - Case Study

Customer Profile:

Jungle Jim’s International Market isn’t your typical grocery store; it’s a destination for food lovers. 多年来,丛林吉姆的小店已经从一个简单的路边摊发展到了300家,000-square-foot food extravaganza, offering more than 150,来自全球75个国家的000种不同的产品.

该市场以拥有美国最大的葡萄酒收藏之一而闻名, live seafood tanks and an in-store cooking school, in addition to a 1,000-person event center, where private receptions and trade shows are held. Each week, 50,000 shoppers visit Jungle Jim’s. In fact, customers have been known to drive from other cities, and even states, 为该店丰富多样的食品和独特的购物体验.

“AWS包装的质量远远优于10bet十博app下载的传统包装. 我不记得有任何顾客投诉10bet十博app下载的旧包装,但他们不得不怀疑. Since we move such a large volume of meat, we didn’t experience any shrink due to wrap quality, 但销量较低的商店可能会对销售产生影响.”
Phill Adams, Jungle Jim’s International Market开发总监

Challenge:

丛林吉姆遗留的重量包装机在过去的两年里失效了好几次. 因为这片区域只有一名认证的食品设备技术员, the machine would be down for up to two days. 丛林吉姆的确有一个手动包装站,可以适应停机时间, 但手工包装肉制品耗时较长,每包人工成本较高.

前一台机器失灵的原因之一是它跟不上“丛林吉姆的美食肉店”(Jungle Jim 's Gourmet Meat shop)的高容量.

丛林吉姆的员工认为这台机器太复杂了,即使是很小的维护, such as replacing a sensor, which staff could typically repair themselves, had to be outsourced to a certified technician.

In addition to the maintenance issues, 丛林吉姆的不满意的包装质量,从前机器,以及薄膜包装只能从一个特定的供应商, which was costly.

Solution:

Objectives:

  • 用一个更可靠的单位取代传统的称重包装机,可以处理大量的丛林吉姆的肉店.
  • Improve meat-wrap quality.
  • Lower wrap purchasing costs.

“With our legacy weigh wrapper, there was only one technician in the area, and maintenance could take two days or longer. 有了10bet十博,10bet十博app下载就有了大量的本地服务人员. 他们总是在附近安装,维护和服务10bet十博app下载的设备.”
Phill Adams

  • Eliminate downtime and increase efficiency: Since replacing the previous weigh-wrap machine, 丛林吉姆在10bet十博AWS中从未经历过停机时间. 这一结果转化为维修成本的降低和劳动效率的提高.
  • Reduce film costs: 与传统的机器相比,丛林吉姆使用10bet十博AWS时使用的胶片少了50%. Furthermore, the AWS film is more cost-efficient, 因为丛林吉姆可以从多个分销商那里购买. With its former weigh-wrap equipment, 丛林吉姆不得不从当地的一个分销商那里购买电影,并且被锁定在一个购买价格.
  • Increase food safety with a higher-quality wrap: Hobart’s AWS delivers a much better quality of wrap, 这保证了更紧密的配合和减少交叉污染的可能性. 它还向客户提供了一个更有吸引力的产品演示.
  • Save labor and time: 有了10bet十博AWS, Jungle Jim 's Meat Shoppe的员工不需要重新贴标签或重新定位包装. AWS自动将托盘居中、包装和贴标签,节省时间和提高质量. 与传统的机器相比,胶片加载时间也更短. AWS允许两侧和背面都进入薄膜区域. 操作人员甚至可以用一只手加载薄膜,薄膜在轴上滑动并自动居中.
  • Safe space, increase back-room safety: 10bet十博的AWS比丛林吉姆之前的机器更小,占用的空间也少了三分之一. 在肉店中有更多的空间,这使得员工在后面的房间中更容易和安全地移动肉车.
