Episys and Lindbak partner to bring world-class solutions to Scandinavian market

Episys, a global information technology solutions and services company, has appointed Lindbak Retail Systems as the Premier Reseller Partner for Scandinavia to provide its market leading Retail Enterprise Suite of solutions.

Lindbak Retail Solutions are currently implemented in around 3,000 stores, 100 Head Offices and in approximately 7,000 checkout terminals throughout Scandinavia. Lindbak has recently introduced the latest generation of its own store chain and store management software solution Lindbak Chain.  This will be complemented by the Episys Retail Enterprise Suite delivering a complete end-to-end retail management and signage solution.

Episys Retail Enterprise Suite is widely used by retailers internationally and helps them to gain increased sales, reduced costs and improved operational efficiency.  The out-of-the-box configurable solution combines precise promotional messaging and signage with mobile applications.

Clients, which include Home Depot, Macys, Sainsburys, Saks Inc, Waitrose and Sears Holdings, are able to drive content from a single source to all types of output media including paper, handheld mobile devices, electronic signage, plasma screens and web pages. This ensures the integrity, accuracy and quality of a retailer's promotional message and eliminates data redundancy.

Inge Eilertsen, Lindbak Retail Systems CEO commented, Over the last 10 years we have had a very good working relationship with Episys. We have used Episys technology as components inside our applications to manage in-store printed signage and shelf labels.  This wider relationship and use of Episys technology will allow us to bring to market the more advanced in-store communications that are required by retailers in todays competitive environment.

Peter Lewis, Episys Marketing Director said, We recognise the need to have close working relationships with geographic partners to deliver the levels of service that the retail market demands. This relationship allows us to work together more closely to bring significant benefits of reduced costs, increased sales and improved efficiencies to retailers within Scandinavia. Episys is expanding globally by a powerful partner network and we seek to work with retail specialists throughout the world.  The Rapport partnership program has been established to recognise the mutual benefits to be gained.
