Fujitsu Retail Suite Supports Global Retailers With Single, Secure, Easy-to-Integrate Solution
Award-Winning GlobalSTORE POS Application Adds New Functionality and Data Security Certification
SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 08/23/11 -- Fujitsu announced the latest version of the Fujitsu Retail Suite, a unified solution for point of sale (POS), retail data management and reporting, the management of customers, returns, and gift cards. Fujitsu Retail Suite version 4.2 increases support for global retailers, making it the perfect solution for companies that want to run the same system for every country in which they operate. The new version also delivers an enhanced view of customers across all selling channels, promoting greater customer satisfaction. Version 4.2 now features expanded configuration capabilities for ease of use, workflow and branding. For improved security, version 4.2 of GlobalSTORE® software, the award-winning Fujitsu POS solution included in the Fujitsu Retail Suite, has achieved PA-DSS 1.2 certification from the PCI Security Standards Council, which will help retailers to ensure high levels of payment card data security across the global, multi-channel retail environment.
"Global retailers need a secure global solution for managing their customers and their customers' data across all channels," said Bill King, Executive Vice President, Global Retail Business. "They want an integrated view of the customer in order to optimize the customer experience, and they want a customizable solution that integrates easily with existing systems and prepares them for future retailing initiatives, such as migration to the cloud. Fujitsu Retail Suite delivers all this, providing unprecedented uniformity across all customers and countries, enabling retailers to work smarter and far more efficiently to improve service and drive down costs."
Fujitsu Retail Suite 4.2 includes five essential components that can be implemented as a single, unified solution, or as individual applications that can be easily integrated within a retailer's existing solutions:
Version 4.2 of the Fujitsu Retail Suite, which adds support for Windows® 7 desktop and SQL 2008 R2, also includes Country Packs, a variety of services that simplify entry into countries beyond the U.S. Supported by a worldwide Fujitsu presence and extensive knowledge of retailing, Fujitsu Retail Suite 4.2 Country Packs make it easier to open new stores in new countries by providing language translations as well as country-specific currency, tax and measurement control and management.
Fujitsu Retail Suite 4.2 provides a single view of customer, stored value card, returns and inventory information across all channels whether it be in-store at the Point of Sale terminals and self-service kiosks or via the web or mobile device. The information is shared and the same wherever it is accessed.
A broadly configurable solution, Fujitsu Retail Suite 4.2 provides retailers with a rich set of tools for configuring the user interface, modifying receipt formats, and controlling operational aspects of the solution through hundreds of options. Retailers can make the configuration changes themselves or engage the highly skilled Fujitsu professional services team.
