Retail technology vendors IBM and StoreNext Retail Technologies LLC are joining forces to market pre-packaged retail solutions powered by IBM point-of-sale systems for independent and regional chain grocers.
Under the agreement, StoreNext ISS45 and ScanMaster applications are now fully integrated with IBM's SurePOS 300, SurePOS 500, and SurePOS 700 POS terminal lines. StoreNext will also bundle the IBM platforms with its Retalix StorePoint POS solution for the convenience store and fuel retail market.
"Working with a market leader like StoreNext and its dealer network to extend our reach into the SMB market," said John Gaydac, v.p., IBM Retail Store Solution sales, Americas. "StoreNext's grocery applications coupled with IBM hardware enables both companies to better serve this important segment. Adding this new channel and solution to our existing ACE independent grocery offering provides independent grocers with the widest set of solutions possible."
"It was time to extend the IBM-Retalix relationship by pairing StoreNext's software with IBM's terminal hardware," said Ray Carlin, president and c.e.o. of StoreNext. "The market is demanding hardware choice, and this partnership will deliver outstanding value and a powerful brand to key market segments such as independent grocers and convenience stores."
The new grocery packages are available immediately from StoreNext's nationwide reseller network. Systems combining Retalix StorePoint C-store software with the IBM hardware will be released this summer.
