NEW YORK -- IBM and Retalix have formed a partnership to create and market a highly integrated system-management solution to centrally manage point-of-sale systems, applications and other elements of a grocery or convenience store datacenter.
The project, announced at the National Retail Federation show, will combine the Retalix portfolio of retail automation software -- including Retalix StoreLine and Retalix StorePoint -- with IBM's Remote Management Agent.
The solution will allow retailers to remotely monitor, configure and track hardware, software and applications located in a single store or multiple stores from one centralized location, according to the company.
"This represents IBM's and Retalix's joint commitment to providing clients end-to-end manageability on creative and open platforms,'" said Steve Ladwig, general manager of IBM Retail Store Solutions. "Working together with Retalix will help us achieve our goal of delivering a robust tool for managing the entire retail datacenter, from point-of-sale systems, to peripherals, to enterprisewide applications.'"
