Scale Management

Catapult integrates with the popular Plum Scale Management Software provided by Invatron, to interface with grocery and deli scales to streamline weighed foods management. This scale management technology enables accurate pricing, margin control, easy promotion maintenance, and simplifies management of fresh food items.

Bring Your Scales and POS Together

Catapult’s Plum IP application provides streamlined grocery and deli price management. Price updates are entered into Catapult and automatically sent to all store scales once they become effective. For users with Plum, price changes can be sent to all scales in the enterprise. This technology enables the user to make only one price update in the Catapult point of sale (POS) opposed to changing the price at both the POS and scale management system. This saves countless hours in tedious labor and ensures a higher level of price accuracy between the POS and fresh food scales.

Plum software provides the ability to print labels for nutritional and ingredient information for fresh food items. This is more important than ever as people are becoming increasingly more health conscious and many customers have strict diet requirements (i.e. gluten free).
Because Invatron’s Plum scale management suite works with many popular scale brands, the retailer has flexibility in scale product choice ensuring the scale manufacturer chosen fits both cost and functionality requirements for specific enterprise needs.

Plum reporting enables monitoring of critical fresh food operations such as import, transmit, and merge activity. These reports can also show PLU, ingredient, and nutritional information for each department.
