C&K Market to Deploy Cloud-based Payment System
C&K Market Inc. has deployed a cloud-based, software-as-a-service (SaaS) payments system across its 61 stores, which run under the banners of Ray’s Food Place, Ray’s Shop Mart and C&K Market.
The Brookings, Ore.-based grocer is using the Connected Payments solution from Dallas-based Retalix. C&K has been a Retalix POS customer for years.
Alan Nidiffer, CIO of C&K Market, expects Connected Payments to help his company better manage compliance-related transaction data, while improving overall POS efficiency and reducing costs. The Connected Payments subscription-based model eliminated all of C&K’s up-front license costs for the new system, while providing operational efficiency from centralized online reporting and analysis.
“We wanted to effectively meet increasing PCI standards, and Connected Payments provided the best solution because it actually removes all cardholder data from our stores,” said Nidiffer. “The result is optimal transaction data security. In addition, Connected Payments has helped us reduce our electronic payments costs overall, and it provides centralized reporting that improves our operational performance.”
“Connected Payments helps grocers like C&K Market ease the burden of costly PCI compliance updates, while ensuring reduced costs and dramatic payback,” said Todd Michaud, president of Retalix USA.
