Bizerba is systematically bringing POS trends to the scales and focussing on global partnerships.
Online PR News – 05-February-2011 – – Balingen, 3 February 2011 - Bizerba is focussing on cooperation with global partners. "The POS architecture of the last few years is being systematically integrated into the world of scales. For this purpose the equipment works in accordance with open standards, is SAP certified and ARTS compatible", said Tudor Andronic, Director of Global Retail Solutions for solutions provider Bizerba.
Amongst others the examples of application at the Euro-Shop included "digital merchandising" and "couponing" with the partners YeahPoint Australia, Online and Accardo. According to Andronic, innovative self-scanning and self-checkout systems are also important trends for the future.
Bizerba is growing beyond the traditional scales business
"This new structure of the product portfolio is enabling Bizerba to grow beyond the traditional scales business", said Peter Laudien-Weidenfeller, Director of Global Retail Sales at Bizerba. No scales provider, according to Laudien-Weidenfeller, is able to "provide all the functions alone, which, for example, a leading European company specialising in fish and seafood and having its own restaurants requires. Working together with Procom, a uniform architecture for counters, restaurants and table service restaurants has been developed". Meanwhile, the hardware is also more flexible: the K-class flex, the modular version of the K-class PC-scales allows individual scales and checkout modules to be integrated into the POS in a way that saves space. Standards and schemes such as UPOS and IXRETAIL are being systematically factored in.
Fresh, efficient management: openness for all formats alleviates the complexity of the global process
The continuously increasing number of fresh products requires a new way of thinking from food retailers and raises huge challenges: product flows must be centrally managed, controlled in real time and the respective local sales conditions must be adjusted. Together with the software family RetailFramework, Bizerba is creating the framework conditions to be able to quickly, pragmatically and uniformly meet these requirements. The principle of "openness" for all formats is also valid here: "heterogeneous customer environments which exist at the weighing systems of different manufacturers can be homogenously controlled. This web-based application alleviates the complexity of the global process", said Andronic in closing.
