WEST DES MOINES, Iowa -- Following the successful deployment of a point-of-sale system rollout at 120 stores, regional independent chain Hy-Vee plans to enter phase two of the deployment to complete the installation within the next 12 months.
In Phase I of the deployment, over 2,500 POS lanes, representing 120 of Hy-Vee's supermarket and drug stores, and over 60 of the company's convenience/fuel stores have installed the Retalix StoreLine POS solution, and all of the company's "fuel-only" locations have already installed the system.
"The system has provided many advantages, starting with hardware independence," said John Briggs, c.f.o. of Hy-Vee. "In addition, the touch screens at the POS have greatly reduced cashier training time which also goes right to the bottom line savings. With Retalix we're able to have one system to support in both the store and gasoline businesses."
Hy-Vee, Inc. is an employee-owned corporation operating 222 stores in seven Midwestern states (Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, and Minnesota.) In fiscal year 2005 the company recorded total sales in excess of $4.9 billion.
