Today is the scale industry with PC standards such as UPOS, WEPOS, Linux, etc”, says Matthias Harsch, spokesman of Bizerba’s business management. So it was no problem, fully to integrate the scales in an environment set up by the IBM at Migros. The scale has the function of a POS’s with integrated scales, as also the coffers of a central controlled POS server. Also centrally applied software and updates from the server. The integration of scales and fund world has another big advantage: the economic goods and in-store processes are optimized. This leads not only to the reduction of spoilage, but increases the accuracy of the price”explains black. Also promotional actions were now easy to implement. Since the touchscreens of the scales are intuitive to use, extensive seller training accounts for.
In the BackOffice and Enterprise functions can be avoided almost entirely on training, as the user now with virtually work identical control procedures and surfaces, both scales and cash registers. In addition to the data and system management, Migros can actively sell with the new system and multimedia information. Significant growth can be expected here. Our scales are the technical prerequisites for any information, such as product information, nutritional information, individually on each device to transfer prices and Werbescreens. The transmission of data is carried out via the Central Migros corporate network”says Harsch. Migros has achieved by the homogeneous platform at cash registers and scales, future changes to be implemented much faster and more robust than in the past.
The installation of the self-service and control scales will be completed by the middle of the year.
