ANKENY, Iowa -- Casey's General Stores has selected Dalls-based Retalix PocketOffice (RPO) suite of mobile applications for a company-wide implementation, as an additional subsystem of the Retalix StorePoint solution suite already utilized by the midwestern convenience store chain. Casey's is currently in the midst of a chainwide StorePoint rollout, already implemented in 700 of its sites, and intends to deploy RPO in all of its 1,350 stores.
RPO is a Microsoft WindowsCE-based suite of mobile applications, which comprises ordering, receiving, stock counting, price verification, waste management and wet stock receiving modules. RPO guides operators through performing many back-office operations without leaving their locations on the floor, thus enabling greater availability of the store staff to serve customers.
Casey's will roll out RPO utilizing Denso Hand-Held terminals. The Denso Hand-Held is part of Denso's BHT-200 mobile computer series with an integrated barcode scanner, operating on an open WindowsCE.net operating system. Close collaboration of Retalix and Denso engineers resulted in the development of a custom-designed device.
"Our decision to implement RPO at all of our 1,350 stores was not only the logical extension of our vigorous rollout of the Retalix StorePoint suite, but the natural choice, based on the product's user-friendliness and its seamless integration with the existing StorePoint suite," said Brad Heyer, Casey's vice president of information systems. "In addition, the optimized workflow results in considerable time and cost savings and allows us to stay ahead of the game in a competitive market with continuously tightening margins."
