Wawa, Inc. Completes Roll-Out of Radiant Systems Solution.
Chain Wide Rollout using Radiant Systems' Core-Tech Back Office
and Headquarters Management Systems positions Wawa as technology
Radiant Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: RADS), a leading provider of integrated technology solutions to retailers worldwide, announces the successful implementation of its Core-Tech Back Office and Core-Tech Headquarters Management systems in all 496 Wawa, Inc. stores. The privately held chain is based in Wawa, Pa.
John Cunningham, Wawa Store Operations Technology Director, comments, "We are very pleased with the rapid implementation of the Radiant solution to our stores, and the business benefits we are achieving. The dedication of the project and implementation teams, and the relationships with our business partners were the critical factors in meeting our aggressive install schedule." He states, "As we move forward with our other initiatives this implementation will be the cornerstone of making our plans work. The Radiant solution is an integral part of our store operations technology plan, and enables other corporate initiatives, which will enable us to continue our growth while maintaining the Wawa standards for customer service."
At each Wawa store, Radiant Systems' Core-Tech Back Office provides product information to a third party point of sale (POS) for scanning purposes and retrieves individual transaction detail from the POS. Core-Tech Back Office is a site-based system that integrates with the POS to provide real-time reporting and control between the back office and point of sale stations. Core-Tech Back Office links the electronic price book from the Core-Tech Headquarters system to the point of sale. Radiant Systems' Core-Tech Headquarters application is a data management system that provides electronic price book control, site configuration and category management functionality.
Harry McHugh, Wawa VP of Operations, remarks, "The response from the field has been overwhelming. Our store managers have been quick to see the benefits of the Core-Tech Back Office and are eager to use the additional functionality in the software package. Over the next few months we will begin to add these additional tools, like perpetual inventory and computer assisted ordering, which will enable our store managers to get even more from the Radiant Solution. With our initial implementation, we have only scratched the surface of the value we will obtain through this technology."
Paul Langenbahn, Solutions Director for Radiant Systems, replies, "Wawa has laid a foundation for success for the next several years. The completion of their rapid implementation reflects the management commitment and vision of the employees that make Wawa an industry leader."
