PLANO, Texas and KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Associated Wholesale Grocers (AWG) of Kansas City, Mo., a retailer-owned grocery wholesaler that serves more than 1,600 stores in a 21-state area, signed an agreement today with technology solutions provider StoreNext Retail Technologies to jointly market and promote StoreNext's products to the AWG membership.
The agreement covers StoreNext's Connected Services Internet-based suite of store management software, ISS45 point-of-sale (POS) systems, and wireless mobile hardware and software, which will be offered as part of AWG's Paragon program.
The Retalix HQ and Store software applications continue to be endorsed under the Paragon Program. (StoreNext is a joint venture between Fujitsu Transaction Solutions and Rertalix.)
"Our relationship with StoreNext and its dealer community is one way we can assure that our members have access to the proper selection, successful implementation, and complete utilization of automated retail systems," said Keith Martin, c.i.o. of AWG. "These systems should help them enhance the shopper experience while improving store systems; the ultimate goal is a better bottom line."
The program consists of marketing strategies to promote StoreNext technology offerings to the AWG membership, as well as coordinating IT system integration between AWG systems and applications and StoreNext-hosted products.
The program focuses on users of ISS45 V7 and V8, Retalix PocketOffice mobile applications and Connected Services Sales Analysis, Electronic Journal, and ShrinkTrax for loss prevention. The Retalix PocketOffice application will be offered in conjunction with Fujitsu's iPAD handheld device.
