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.
