By the Numbers
Over the years we’ve published our fair share of customer success stories, which are available for you to read on the SSCS website. We also have a collection of glowing testimonials, which you can read here.
These articles aren’t just about what SSCS has done for the customer—although that aspect of the story is certainly part of the mix—rather, they are mini-profiles of what makes each one of our customers and their approach to business unique—and what makes them similar.
Recently we reviewed the content of every story to see if they were still relevant. While we were digging to find the answer (a resounding, “Yes!”) we found it hard to ignore the numbers sprinkled throughout the human interest stuff.
People love numbers when reading a business profile, because it gives them a quantifiable sense of performance—either good or bad. SSCS is no different; the convenience store industry is awash in relevant numbers just begging for analytical measurement, and that exactly what SSCS Technology does. So we thought, just for fun, we’d excerpt numbers from our existing profiles and testimonials to see the kind of positive story they told. See for yourself…

“The CDB [Computerized Daily Book] is a big help because it’s precise about tracking our waste. I can be sure I’m not throwing money in the trash. I’m maintaining a 50 percent margin on pizza and we’re definitely trending upward. I’m not sure I would have tried to offer Food Service without a back office system.”
