ATLANTA -- Radiant Systems, Inc. and Professional Datasolutions, Inc. announced today that leading retailers in the convenience industry have committed to use Radiant Point-of-Sale and the PDI/RMS back office interfaced with one another at more than 1,000 stores.
"When we chose a new store solution, support for industry standards was critical amongst the solution providers we looked at," said Scott Hartman, president and CEO of Rutter’s Farm Stores, the most recent retailer to sign on as a customer of both companies. "The proven success of the Radiant-PDI PCATS-NAXML interface was a key factor in our decision to install the companies' software."
First installed in 2005, the Radiant-PDI solution utilizes the PCATS-NAXML interface to link the two applications. By utilizing an industry-standard interface, the companies are able to maximize future flexibility for retailers and speed the deployment of an end-to-end point-of-sale and back office solution.
"The technology standards project has been a long-term commitment for PDI," said Greg Gilkerson, president of the Temple, TX,-based PDI. "The success our PCATS-NAXML interface with Radiant is experiencing in the marketplace shows that the industry is embracing providers that are able to support standards."
"By utilizing open standards, retailers are able to deploy best-in-breed applications faster and with less effort than in the past," said Mark Schoen, president of Radiant's global petroleum and convenience retail division. "Reaching the 1,000-site milestone with our PDI relationship shows the success of providing retailers with multiple options for their technology decisions."
