BT has joined forces with Retalix, to launch a range of products and services which will meet the in-store technology requirements of food and convenience retailers in the UK.
The co-operation agreement, announced at Retail Solutions 2008, brings together Retalix's established store technology platform with BT's retail team.
Combined with its capabilities in communications and networked IT, BT says it will be able to offer a new end-to-end grocery solution to the UK marketplace.
The Retalix grocery store solution is an integrated suite of electronic point-of-sale (EPOS) and back-office software applications, comprising fuel, loyalty, self-checkout, wireless mobile solutions, in-store kiosks and more.
BT will sell, deliver and support the Retalix solution as part of a 'shop in a box' package, enabling grocery and convenience retailers to source their store infrastructure, applications, communications, hardware, and services, including integration, roll-out, training and support, from a single supplier.
