STORES AUTOMATED SYSTEMS, INC. (SASI) INSTALLS SECOND POINT-OF-SALE (POS) SYSTEM IN BIGG'S HYPERMARKETS

 BRISTOL, Pa., Feb. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Stores Automated Systems, Inc. (SASI), a leading developer and manufacturer of point-of-sale systems solutions for retailers, has installed a multi-register POS system in bigg's Hypermarket, Cincinnati/Eastgate, which serves more than 50,000 customers a week.
 Valued at more than one-half million dollars, this is the second bigg's installation within a year. SASI designed and developed both the hardware and software solutions to meet bigg's application requirements. One of the fastest-growing hypermarket chains in the Midwest, bigg's operates stores in Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana and Colorado.
 David Ashby, director of MIS for bigg's, said the company chose SASI's POS system because "the cash registers never go down."
 "We were at a point where our existing POS systems weren't working. The cash registers with the SASI system enable us to provide continuous customer service. And, when we needed assistance, SASI responded much more quickly than any other vendor with whom we have dealt," said Ashby. "SASI's design on its equipment and its software is where the future of POS systems should go," he added.
 Jack Finney, vice president of industry marketing for SASI, said, "We are pleased to be working with bigg's Hypermarkets. Providing customers like bigg's with POS solutions that meet their needs and help them succeed in the competitive retail marketplace is the driving force behind our business." The new system, designed to meet bigg's unique requirements, consists of 50 cash registers, each a 386 POS terminal that is linked to a backroom 486 computer. SASI developed and manufactured all of the hardware and software necessary for the installation.
 In addition, SASI designed the POS system to provide bigg's with integrated electronic funds transfer. This allows the credit card function to take place on the register rather than on a separate peripheral device. The SASI system designed for bigg's allows self- maintenance, reducing annual expenses. Each register can store 130,000 items and all the necessary information for detailed management and financial reporting.
 Stores Automated Systems, Inc., headquartered in Bristol, designs, develops, manufactures, markets and supports integrated point-of-sale solutions for the retail industry. The company specializes in serving convenience store, auto aftermarket and drugstore chains, supermarkets and hypermarkets. Founded in 1983, SASI pioneered the development of PC-based POS systems. The company uses an open architecture concept under DOS and UNIX platforms to capitalize on advanced software techniques. With more than 30,000 registers in retail stores throughout North America, SASI has distinguished itself as the leading single- solution provider for such retailers as WAWA, Pep Boys, Savemart, Rite Aid Corporation and Diamond Shamrock, Inc.
 Headquartered in Milford, Ohio, bigg's Hyper Shoppes, Inc. operates seven stores nationally, five bigg's Hypermarkets and two bigg's Foods. Providing one-stop shopping for food and non-food items, bigg's stores average 205,000 square feet and carry hardline and softline goods. Each hypermarket features a delicatessen, smokehouse and fresh seafood market in the food department. Offering true minimum pricing, bigg's purchases popular products at a discount and passes the savings on to its customers.
