PHOENIX — Sprouts Farmers Market, which operates more than 140 fresh and natural grocery stores in eight Southwestern states, recently implemented systems from Minneapolis-based Verisae that will aggregate and analyze data on store equipment, refrigeration and energy usage, including equipment procurement, parts and inventory tracking, remote monitoring of asset efficiency and management of third-party service contractors.
Sprouts selected core modules of the Verisae Connected Facility platform, Enterprise Asset Management, Enterprise Refrigerant Management and Enterprise Asset Purchasing solutions. The technology is designed to reduce costs by managing facilities and the individual assets within each facility.

“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, in a statement. “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.”
