Fruit Growers Supply Selects Point of Sale Solution From DataXstream

FRUIT GROWERS SUPPLY SELECTS POINT OF SALE SOLUTION FROM DATAXSTREAM

DataXstream POS for SAP® ERP will increase sales opportunities and improve customer service  

 

WILLIAMSBURG, VA. – March 29, 2014 – DataXstream (www.dataxstream.com), the designer and seller of a fully integrated point of sale (POS) solution, announced today that Fruit Growers Supply has selected the DataXstream POS application. The solution works with the SAP® ERP application and provides traditional POS functionality as well as advanced order management capabilities. Built and deployed on the SAP NetWeaver® technology platform, the DataXstream POS application is easy to deploy through SAP portal technology or a browser and features real time inventory visibility across the supply chain. DataXstream’s solution helps organizations leverage live reporting of their business activities – an invaluable benefit for store operations and management reporting.

Fruit Growers Supply (FGS) based in Sherman Oaks, Calif. (www.fruitgrowers.com), is one of the oldest companies in the state to handle the unique needs of the agricultural community.  The company operates multiple retail and warehouse locations in California and Arizona.

“Our aged POS system had forced us into so many workarounds, resulting in a number of inefficiencies that had a negative impact to the top and bottom line,” said Alex Perlovich, IT Director at FGS.  “We were looking for a POS solution that could handle multiple types of payments (cash, credit, credit cards, EMV), as well as down payments with balance due at delivery, along with refund and return capability. We also wanted to have the POS solution that was flexible enough to handle complex order processes such as order on account with delivery over time directly from the POS terminal.”

The DataXstream POS application for SAP® ERP provides complete back office connectivity as well as comprehensive functionality for retail locations such as support for sales promotions and complex pricing. The system also supports better customer service through increased visibility to customer history and product availability, which is a common need in specialty retail environments.

“A key consideration for Fruit Growers Supply when selecting the DataXstream POS solution was that it is an add-on to the SAP ERP application environment and integrates with SAP ERP,” said DataXstream’s Craig Stasila, VP of Product Development.

November in Colorado

We successfully ended the preparation period and have started race season full swing!  After three weeks of training in Colorado my racing is off to a good start with some competitive runs, cold temperatures and fun!  I have my first two podiums of the season under my belt, a second place in FIS giant slalom and a third place in North American Cup super combine.  I will be spending the next month in Europe chasing the so far elusive World Cup result!

A Successful First Trip

Independent Ski Racing’s first trip of the 2013 season is in the books!  We spent two weeks of October in Europe preparing for the World Cup opener in Solden, Austria.  During those two weeks I got my first powder day of the season and had amazing training on both the race hill in Solden and on injected snow on a slope called the Ice Box; thank you to the U.S. Ski Team for including me in those days of training!  I worked hard this summer to prepare myself and my program for the winter and I am happy with how things are progressing.  Each day of skiing I got faster and more comfortable.  I missed qualification in Solden by .57 hundredths of a second and will be headed to Colorado for a month of training  to find that time before Beaver Creek!

Here are some pictures of my European journey……
