DigiPoS equips Netto Marken-Discount branches with 2,300 Retail Blade PoS systems
DigiPoS Systems Group has won the Netto Marken-Discount chain as a customer. With an agreement to deliver 2,300 Retail Blades to around 1,000 Netto Marken-Discount branches across the whole of Germany, the deal is the biggest to date for DigiPoS Systems in Germany. The DigiPoS Retail Blades replace the incumbent IBM, ADS Anker and AWEK systems.
An important reason for this choice by Netto Marken-Discount is the technological innovation of Retail Blade, which simplifies service considerably and offers remote diagnosis to monitor hardware centrally. DigiPoS Retail Blade brings the benefits of modern Blade architecture to PoS for the first time. The system has two modular components the Retail Host casing and the Retail Blade plug-in motherboard. Retail Host is a stable compact metal casing with all the necessary interfaces plus the power supply for the whole system and all peripheral equipment. DigiPoS offers Retail Blade in numerous variants from the Value 2.0 GHZ version up to the 2.8GHZ Dual Drive Server model. The modular Retail Blade systems offers a significant cost of ownership benefit and much reduced service and maintenance costs.
Netto has been operating as a discount grocery chain since 1984 and is part of the Edeka Group, the top German grocery retailer. Every year the Netto branch network increases by around 100 new shops. The DigiPoS solution consists of Retail Blade, DigiPoS Touchmonitor and the Microsoft WEPOS operating system. GK/Retail POS from GK Software AG will be used as point of sale software.
