Fujitsu Releases GlobalSTORE 4.0 for Retailers and Grocers
Modular POS Platform Adds Enhanced Back-Office Capabilities
Richardson, TX, January 12, 2009 - Fujitsu Transaction Solutions Inc. today released GlobalSTORE 4.0, the latest version of the company's modular point-of-sale (POS) software for retailers and grocers.
The updated platform includes enhanced back-office capabilities that leverage Microsoft's Windows Communication Foundation and Windows Presentation Foundation technologies, allowing retailers to easily add and customize features like back-office and cash-management functions. In addition, GlobalSTORE's back-office interface has been modified for increased user-friendliness.
"As the needs and desires of retailers and grocers continue to change, it's equally important that providers like Fujitsu evolve their technology to meet those demands," said Keith McNamara, senior vice president, software operations, at Fujitsu Transaction Solutions Inc. "We've listened, and GlobalSTORE 4.0 gives retailers and grocers enhanced back-office capabilities, increased security and greater flexibility."
Additional features include:
o Enhanced training - The GlobalSTORE Interactive Training System now allows users to view instructions and interact with the back-office screens at the same time.
o Fully Touchable Back Office - Using Human Factors Engineering precepts, GlobalSTORE's back-office interfaces are fully touchable and don't require the use of pointing devices to perform complex administrative actions.
o Foreign Language Translation Tool - Enables retailers to reduce the time and effort needed to meet multiple language requirements for their operations
o Robust Reporting Capabilities - GlobalSTORE can now create more than 55 standard reports as well as customized documents.
The new point-of-sale (POS) software builds on the proven benefits of GlobalSTORE:
o Simplified Interoperability - GlobalSTORE integrates with virtually any in-store or back-office hardware or software technology. As part of Fujitsu's Pervasive Retailing(TM) solutions, the software minimizes the time, cost and risk of creating real-time interoperability between disparate applications and devices.
o Easy to Customize and Maintain - Built on a service-oriented architecture (SOA) within the application, GlobalSTORE is easy to customize, maintain and integrate, which lowers a retailer's total cost of ownership.
o Global Capabilities - Based on the Microsoft Windows® platform, the flexibility of Fujitsu's retail-specific, modular architecture has enabled GlobalSTORE to be deployed at leading retailers in more than 30 countries around the world.
o Enhanced Data Security - GlobalSTORE has been validated by a security assessor (PSC) to meet the Visa U.S.A. Payment Application Best Practices (PABP), which means GlobalSTORE conforms to best practices designed to protect sensitive payment card information from being compromised.
o Extensive Promotion Capabilities - With more than 350 built-in promotion formats, GlobalSTORE makes it easy to support and execute sophisticated promotions.
