Waitrose to Expand Deployment of In-Store Printing Solution
UK grocer Waitrose, plans to extend the deployment of its in-store printing solution to five additional stores, following a successful pilot in its Byers Road Glasgow store.
The grocer is using the In Store Printing solution from Royston, UK-based Episys, a global information technology services company. “This project has been a great success, and we are now extending the program to our five new branches in the Channel Islands,” said David Andrews, head of commercial operations at Waitrose. “Episys has worked closely with us to make sure the solution works in a multi-branch environment, and we’re delighted with how the solution is supporting our business, making it possible for us to extend our trading footprint.”
During the pilot, Waitrose compared the process of delivering the daily signage batches electronically for printing locally in-store to its existing process, where tickets are printed centrally within the head office print room at Bracknell and then shipped overnight via the Waitrose distribution network to the branches. The grocer is moving toward electronic distribution of signage that is printed in the store for its greater efficiencies.
