SEATTLE - AccessVia, provider of retail sign printing and display solutions, has announced that Lubbock, Texas-based United Supermarkets will deploy its Web dSignShop to deliver sign and label printing capabilities to United's 43 stores.
Web dSignShop allows retailers to print promotional signs and shelf-edge labels from a central server using a corporate intranet or the Internet.
"Ease of use, rapid deployment, and superior design control were key factors in our decision to implement the AccessVia technology," said Scott Gilmour, vice president & chief information officer at United.
AccessVia's Web dSignShop will allow United to maintain central control of sign layouts and retail item data while giving stores the ability to print shelf-edge labels and promotional signs using the corporate intranet and existing printers. Predesigned templates and access to real-time corporate data will ensure design consistency and sign accuracy across United's retail enterprise.
"We can use our intranet and the infrastructure that we already have to make it a rapid and an easy rollout," said Shannon Cepica, of United's IS team. "There's no work at the store level in terms of installing the software, so that made the decision to deploy the technology easy."
"It's going to really cut down on the amount of time that price coordinators spend making display signs," said Trisha Hughes, manager of retail information systems at United. "And time is money in retail."
AccessVia's customers also include major retailers such as Staples, Target and Walgreens, and more than 30 grocery retailers such as A&P, Giant Eagle, Stop & Shop, Hannaford, Publix Super Markets, United Supermarkets, and Tesco Lotus.
