ATLANTA -- Alon USA is installing point-of-sale (POS) systems featuring NCR technology running Retalix software solutions. The systems are being deployed at all of Dallas-based Alon's 7-Eleven locations, operated by the company's Southwest Convenience Stores (SCS) retail marketing division.
Alon selected NCR RealPOS 70 workstations, NCR RealScan 92 bar-code scanners and NCR high-speed thermal receipt printers. Alon and NCR have also signed a three-year store technology maintenance contract.
POS initiative also includes the Retalix StorePoint suite of software, with integrated POS, back office, fuel, and home office/pricebook management.
"The high transaction volume in our stores calls for durable, easy-to-service POS technology designed for maximum availability," said Avsha Klachuk, director of marketing technologies. "We found that NCR's products exceeded our criteria, which included lifecycle and total-cost-of-ownership considerations. Further, with the Retalix StorePoint software solution, we are able to meet our current operating requirements for both store and fuel retailing while working closely with their development team to build new and innovative functionality for the future."
The rollout of the NCR/Retalix solution is past the halfway milestone and is scheduled for completion by March 2005. Alon also plans to make the hardware/software package available as a turnkey solution to more than 1,200 FINA-branded fuel outlets that the company supplies through its distributor and direct retail network.
