CANTON, Mass. -- Cumberland Farms Inc., operator of approximately 650 convenience stores in 11 states in the Northeast and Florida, recently equipped the chain's 100th site with the Retalix StorePoint POS and forecourt server solution.
Cumberland Farms selected Retalix as its preferred POS provider after extensive comparison testing and is currently executing on a chainwide rollout of the Retalix StorePoint and new Forecourt Server (RFS) solution. The installed suite includes advanced applications for touch POS, scanning, money order, fuel and credit, all integrated with the legacy back-office system. The rollout rate is currently running at 15 sites and 30 terminals per week, allowing Cumberland Farms to schedule for completion in early 2005.
RFS is a software-based forecourt controller, which eliminates the need for a third-party controller, thus simplifying the design, reducing hardware costs and improving performance. StorePoint's open-platform POS offers a variety of features for versatile cashier operation, such as scanning for age verification, processing coupons, money order interfaces and full forecourt integration and control.
"Our goal is to drive operational efficiencies and continually improve the customer shopping experience," said John Carroll, Cumberland Farms vice president of information technology. "The Retalix StorePoint system, and in particular RFS, is helping us achieve these goals and has been extremely well received by our store associates."
"RFS offers a faster, less complicated, more robust and flexible platform for convenience store operators," said Jeff Yelton, CEO of Retalix USA. "Retalix is pleased to provide Cumberland Farms with a rich and seamlessly integrated solution that supports its ability to provide customers with superior and differentiated service."
