The Pantry Inc., has begun rolling out Retalix StorePoint, Retalix Fuel, and Retalix HQ convenience software to its more than 1,600 retail locations.
The Pantry, whose primary brand, Kangaroo Express, has a strong footprint in 11 southeastern states. Many of its 1,643 locations offer gasoline, while commercial fuel is also offered at about 80 travel center sites. Some of the convenience stores and travel centers also include quick-service restaurants.
“We needed a consistent, unified technology platform across all of our stores, through which we could manage our various fuel brands and foodservice operations, have easy access to centralized data, ensure PCI compliance and enhance customer service,” said Ed Collupy, vice president of information services for Sanford, N.C.-based chain. “The breadth of the Retalix solution enables us to go from one end of our business to the other with a robust, flexible and synchronized set of software modules that will carry us well into the future.”
The Retalix StorePoint solution runs on IBM SurePOS 500 hardware and includes integrated forecourt automation for both gas and commercial fuel, Electronic Payment Software (EPS) for support of branded fuels from, BP, Chevron, Citgo and ExxonMobil, plus Foodservice, Cash and Inventory Management modules. The IBM SurePOS series is engineered for peak POS performance, delivering the style and serviceability to help retailers optimize the customer experience.
