Tesco to Deploy Retalix 10 Chainwide
U.K. grocer Tesco Plc. Plans to deploy Retalix 10 Store Suite software chainwide following a successful pilot of the solution.
Tesco, the third largest grocery retailer in the world, has been a Retalix business partner since 1995, and is operating a range of Retalix store solutions across more than 4,000 stores in 11 countries.
"We plan to implement the Retalix 10 store suite in all of our stores worldwide," said Mike McNamara, CIO of Tesco Plc. "Retalix 10 will form the foundation of our store technology. Its extensible, service oriented architecture allows us to add new features and services for our customers quickly. Continuous innovation, operational efficiency and a relentless focus on the customer have helped Tesco become one of the world's largest and most successful retailers. Retalix is one of a very small number of technology companies who we regard as strategic partners in our efforts to improve the shopping trip for our customers."
McNamara also said during a "BIG !deas" presentation during this year’s NRF Show held at New York’s Javits Center this week that Tesco’s Fresh & Easy stores will also be switching to the Retalix 10 platform sometime over the next few years.
The Retalix 10 Store and Sales Channels suite is the next-generation store platform from Retalix. Designed around a single software engine, Retalix 10 is designed to unify and streamline deployment and management of in-store systems, mobile commerce, and online storefront channels. According to Retalix, the platform ensures a consistent and personalized shopping experience across all touch points and sales channels, which include POS, self-checkout, self-scanning, customer scale, customer kiosk, fuel sales, mobile commerce and e-commerce, as well as a range of store and chain management applications.
The solution's unique architecture enables high volume, high complexity retailers to break away from systems requiring integration of disparate 'silos' into a unified platform for utmost flexibility, accelerated time-to-market and enhanced central management capabilities. This enables a variety of deployment options such as 'thin store', 'thin POS', or any combination, as well as Cloud readiness, which opens up a new world of lean operations and reduced TCO.
