Canadian Chain Installing POS System Chain-Wide

Metro, Inc. is deploying a new point-of-sale system across its nearly 600 stores in Canada.

The Montreal-based grocer is working with Sweda, also headquartered in Montreal, to install its SwedaMart application. Metro and Sweda completed a successful pilot installation and began the chain-wide SwedaMart implementation in July 2008. As of today, many Metro and Super C stores have been successfully converted, and all the remaining stores in Québec will be fully converted before the end of fiscal 2009. “Sweda has provided us with a smooth migration with no disruption to our operation,” said Jacques Couture, VP, information systems for Metro.

SwedaMart is an open-standards, hardware and operating-system independent POS solution with a variety of functions and features, including a flexible promotion module developed to help retailers implement loyalty strategies and promotional pricing programs.

Metro operates a network food stores under several banners, including Metro, Metro Plus, Super C and Food Basics, as well as over 250 pharmacies under the Brunet, Clini Plus, The Pharmacy, and Drug Basics banners.
