Independent grocer trade group National Grocers Association yesterday inked an agreement with retail technology vendor Pan-Oston to provide association members with special discounts and services on a variety of front-end technologies, including point-of-sale and self-checkout systems and retail display products.
"This agreement represents a great opportunity to create value and efficiency for our members and achieve the necessary economies of scale to compete,” said Frank DiPasquale, s.v.p. and executive director, NGA. “Pan-Oston’s Utopia self-checkout is a proven self-checkout solution for independent grocers, and its new Ergolane checkout is the first major check lane design innovation in over four decades.”
The agreement establishes an exclusive partnership program whereby NGA members are pre-approved to receive member benefits such as economy pricing, unique programs, technology, and support services on all Pan-Oston retail checkout and display products inclusive of the patent pending Utopia self-checkout solution.
