costco logo 3Costco first began using Thermo-Simple in 2005. And, although they initially limited their tests to three Arizona warehouse locations, in only one year Thermo-Simple had become part of the standard U.S. domestic specification for Costco warehouses.
Fast forward to the present day where Thermo-Simple is in over 600 Costco warehouses globally, with more than 24,000 units installed. More important than volume, are the changes we helped foster within Costco as a company and the overwhelming savings it has delivered to their bottom line.

These savings have come from instant efficiency, saving thousands upon thousands of hours that used to be consumed by temperature measurement and recording routines in every store nationwide. Moreover, the simplicity and effectiveness of Thermo-Simple has been a major component in helping Costco cut their food loss to its lowest margin in the history of the company and was the linchpin for the implementation and success of Costco’s highly regarded global food safety program.

In the end, Thermo-Simple became more than a replacement hardware choice. It became a catalyst for a powerful operational strategy that amplified the expertise of only a few HACCP trained staff members into the empowering hands of over 180,000 Costco employees. In an instant, every employee suddenly became a key factor in driving food safety and saving the company thousands of dollars each and every day. And now, with a track record of success and Thermo-Simple working across the board, they have become the perceived industry leader in food safety and food loss prevention.

 

 

If saving thousands each month at every store isn’t convincing enough, how about saving $200,000 at just one store in just one incident?

It was then that a new Whole Foods store was being opened in California. Thermo-Simple thermometers were installed throughout the store and the team was set for their grand opening. Then, in the first month of operation, employees throughout the store noticed the Thermo-Simple devices flashing in alarm mode. Strangely, they could see no other warning alerts - which were hooked to the traditional alarm system. Yet the Thermo-Simple alarms continued to signal out of range temperatures.

After calling a service technician onsite they discovered that the main compressor system was offline and the traditional alarm system had failed to alert them due to a network communication error.

Despite all of the problems that were occurring quietly behind the scenes, Thermo-Simple still effectively kept the problem front and center for everyone to monitor. And more important than that, Whole Foods were able to save over $200,000 in product in this single instance. All thanks to Thermo-Simple.

Needless to say, Thermo-Simple is now currently part of the standard specification for equipment in almost every domestic Whole Foods Market location.
