Sprouts Farmers Market Implements Verisae Software to Enable Connected Facilities

Verisae, the leading global provider of maintenance, energy, and environmental management software, is pleased to announce that Sprouts Farmers Market, one of the fastest growing grocery retailers in the United States, recently implemented core modules of the Verisae Connected Facility platform; Enterprise Asset Management (EAM), Enterprise Refrigerant Management (ERM) and Enterprise Asset Purchasing (EAP) solutions.

Sprouts operates more than 140 fresh and natural full-service grocery stores in eight southwestern states, with their highest concentration of stores in southern California, Arizona, Colorado, and Texas. Sprouts recently merged with Sunflower Farmers Market allowing Sprouts to continue growing and improving the customer shopping experience.

“Sprouts has had a long, successful history of sustainability, from energy conservation to industry leading low refrigerant leak rates,” said Jerry Stutler, Vice President of Construction and Facility Engineering for Sprouts. “But we recognized, especially as we grow through acquisition, that we can do more to streamline our maintenance, energy and refrigerant management processes. Adopting Verisae’s platform was the logical next step, and it’s already producing results.”

To support their aggressive growth strategy, Sprouts recognized the critical importance of managing enterprise-wide asset data. They sought best-practice capabilities for data entry, workflow and reporting, which ultimately led to signing a multi-year agreement with Verisae. The implementation allows Sprouts to immediately reduce costs by managing facilities and the individual assets within each facility.

“We are proud to partner with Sprouts on their journey to become a more sustainable enterprise. Their implementation of Verisae’s Asset and Refrigerant Management solutions provide the foundation to create connected facilities that reduce operational costs and a more sustainable organization,” says Jerry Dolinsky, Verisae’s CEO.

With Verisae, Sprouts will aggregate and analyze data on the entire lifecycle of their assets including equipment procurement, parts and inventory tracking, remote monitoring of asset efficiency and management of third-party service contractors.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires every organization that uses refrigerants as part of its operation to be fully compliant with Section 608 of the Clean Air Act. Verisae’s ERM solution will help Sprouts comply with the stringent EPA regulations, handle technician certification and save money.
