BANGKOK - Lotus Supermarkets, part of the Charoen Pokphand (CP) Group -- one of Thailand's largest conglomerates, which invests in the food, retail, distribution, and telecommunications markets -- has selected Ra'anana, Israel-based Retalix's StoreLine point-of-sale system as its in-store solution throughout the chain.
The first Lotus Supercenter installed with Retalix StoreLine opened in October, with 49 point-of-sale terminals in the store that are running fully in Chinese and connected to the Lotus head office. The retailer will rollout StoreLine to 30 stores by the end of the year, with a total of 124 stores to be rolled out by end of 2006. Half of the stores will be in the Shanghai area, and the rest in the Beijing and Guangzhou areas. The contract was announced as CP continues its expansion into mainland China as foreign investment restrictions for the retail sector are being relaxed.
Retalix StoreLine is a Windows-based in-store solution that offers a hardware-independent point-of-sale operating system, including back-office and mobile functionality, ease of use, system robustness, and the ability to process critical data in real time across multiple sales channels and formats.
"The proven robustness and reliability of StoreLine, along with the suite's global reputation, was a key factor in our decision," said Triumph Tsay, Lotus senior e.v.p. "We are looking forward to growing our relationship with Retalix as we continue to increase our presence within the region [of mainland China.]"
