ParTech, Inc. (PAR), a subsidiary of PAR Technology Corporation (NYSE:PAR) announced today that Wegmans will be upgrading their existing SureCheck® food safety system to PAR's SureCheck® Advantage Solution for all 95 stores. The fully integrated SureCheck Advantage platform with its automated temperature probe, bar code scanner and RFID infrared temperature readers will replace Wegmans' Motorola MC-55 handheld devices being utilized with the earlier version of PAR's Temperature Measuring Device (TMD). Wegmans, founded in 1916 in Rochester, NY, has always made food safety a priority and established the Consumer Affairs Department in 1971 to act as the voice of the consumer inside the company and to educate shoppers about nutrition, food safety, and other food issues. The Wegmans Food Safety Department was seeking to implement a technology based solution when PAR SureCheck was first deployed in November 2015. SureCheck replaced the paper and pencil recording methods Wegmans was using and provided improved food safety reporting consistency across all stores. Wegmans decided to upgrade to SureCheck Advantage based on the all-in-one unit capabilities. The upgrade consists of 885 SureCheck Advantage units. "PAR's SureCheck® Advantage is a key tool in the day-to-day operation of Wegmans food service," said Tom Adams, Food Safety Coordinator at Wegmans. "SureCheck Advantage has provided a 15-25% improvement in operational efficiency, and the cloud-based online reporting saves time and money from our original paper recording process." Starting in 2015, the Federal Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) requires that businesses collect, record, and retain two years of historical food safety compliance records. The PAR SureCheck Advantage Solution, a state-of-the-art food safety and checklist system, captures required data in real-time and synchronizes it to the SureCheck cloud for seamless, automated storage and recall of food safety records for management, maintenance, analytics, and auditing. "Wegmans represents all of the key characteristics of a true partner for PAR," said John W. Sammon III, SVP & General Manager at ParTech, Inc. "Wegmans leads the grocery industry with exemplary culture, which in turn drives exceptional core values. The adoption of the SureCheck Advantage is yet another example of their unending commitment to quality and food safety. PAR's all-in-one solution enhances the culture of excellence for Wegmans employees and customers."
