Acosta’s Mobile Solution Speeds Time-to-Shelf for Candymaker Just Born

Posted March 22, 2012

Zebra Printer Helps Cut In-Store Time and Get Inventory on Its Way

About Acosta Sales & Marketing

Founded in 1927, Acosta has grown from a local food broker to become the leading outsourced sales and marketing agency serving consumer packaged goods companies and retailers across the United States and Canada. The company’s integrated approach engages shoppers at every point along the path to purchase and ensures that clients’ products are strategically positioned to most effectively convert shoppers at the shelf.


You may not know the name Just Born, but you likely know their candy. The national confectionary company makes names such as Mike and Ike’s, Hot Tamales and marshmallow Peeps.

A couple of years ago, the company recognized an untapped opportunity—to get its candies into more convenience stores. Just Born turned to Acosta, which brings technology, expertise and connections with tens of thousands of stores nationwide, including an attractive segment of 30,000 independent convenience stores.

Once in stores, Acosta must help keep Just Born’s regular and seasonal candies on shelves. When Acosta reps check inventory at stores, they need a quick and simple way to print shelf tags and UPC-coded reorder lists for store managers.

E-Citation Produces More Legible Tickets, Increases Revenue

About McAllen Police Department

The McAllen Police Department (MPD) serves the McAllen, Texas, metro area, with a population of about 130,000. Just five miles from the U.S.-Mexico border and the Mexican city of Reynosa (with a population of 500,000), the city’s size can grow by 200,000 to 300,000 commuters each day. The MPD employs 272 sworn officers and approximately 380 total employees.


Like many police departments, MPD had long issued hand-written paper tickets to offenders. The manual process left room for errors in two places:

    • Point of issuance—Handwritten ticket information could be incorrect or illegible.
    • Municipal court—Administrators occasionally entered dates, locations, license numbers, or license plates incorrectly.

Touting “the best buns in town,” Puritan Bakery has served Southern California since 1938.

Now serving more than 1,000 customers, Puritan attributes its growth and longevity to quality products and superb customer service.


Due to the short shelf life of bakery products, Puritan bakes and delivers its breads each day based on customer demand. All customers must have their orders in by noon the day preceding delivery.

Although Puritan delivery drivers used mobile devices previously, they were not integrated with the main office. That meant order changes given to drivers in the field were not received until drivers returned from delivery routes.
