In just a couple of weeks, convenience store retailers and technology vendors will gather in Nashville, Tenn. for the annual NACStech convention, where retailers can view the latest and greatest in technology offerings for the industry. And this year, many tech companies will be showcasing new products and announcing new convenience store clients.
The Pinnacle Corp., in partnership with Ultimate Technology, will be demonstrating its Palm POS on Ultimate’s UltimaTouch 1800 Series POS Touchscreen Workstation. The Workstation features a 15-inch thin film transistor LCD, and is designed with expansion in mind by offering a variety of input/output slots and a peripheral component interconnect slot for special applications like wireless operation, the company reported.
PerformanceRetail will also be demonstrating key components of its InSite solution including its InSite Store Operations Suite, enabling retailers to improve operational efficiency and customer service by automating time-intensive processes like stock replenishment, inventory receiving, supplier management and inventory counts with mobile handheld scanning devices. The company will also announce 10 new customers piloting its software, eight of which are being deployed on top of industry specific legacy systems.
Following its announcement last month that ChevronTexaco purchased an Enterprise License Agreement for its NAMOS Compact POS software, Wincor Nixdorf will be presenting the solution at the show.
NAMOS offers a POS application, back-office Manager’s Workstation and a Wet Data Manager, which is IFSF-compliant. It offers open interface architecture so retailers can connect the back-office as well as legacy systems using NACS XML standards.
Additionally, newly announced partners, KSS Inc. and FuelQuest Inc. will join to present their solutions and explain how retailers can benefit from the integration of their systems to help retailers extract greater margin from their sites and achieve greater efficiencies by optimizing their pricing and supply chain processes, the companies reported.
