DigiPoS Store Solutions Nordic has secured the order from Reitan Group to supply 2,000 PoS systems to the Norwegian Reitan Group, whose company portfolio includes convenience stores such as 7-Eleven, Spaceworld and Rema 1000 in Scandinavia. The order worth approximately £3.6million (30 million DKK) has been awarded to DigiPoS in a very competitive market due to the company’s award-winning point of sale systems and impressive green profile.

DigiPoS put together the perfect PoS-in-a-box solution tailored specifically for Reitan Groups’ Reitan Servicehandel division which owns the convenience brands 7-Eleven, Narvesen and Pressbyran. The DigiPoS solution was selected specifically to meet the company’s high technical and quality requirements.

“This agreement with Reitan Servicehandel confirms our position as a major and significant player in this marketplace." Explains Carsten Hayn, Corporate Account Manager at DigiPoS Nordic.

DigiPoS has 28 dedicated employees In Scandinavia. Worldwide the company employs 230 people to work exclusively with the development, distribution and sale of point-of-sale solutions. In 2008 the company generated a total turnover of just over 480 million DKK.

Over the next nine months DigiPoS will provide Reitan Group with the award winning Retail Blade 7 point of sale system. This specially designed-for-retail touch-screen solution will be supplied with world-class retail-specific peripherals.

DigiPoS will be fully responsible for the preparation and configuration of the PoS hardware as well as installation of the PoS software.

“It is something of a logistical test for the company but after the first few weeks of roll-out we have already seen that things are absolutely on schedule." Explains Carsten Hayn.

“We will continue to work closely with Reitan Group to develop and enhance our point of sale products. Not only will this benefit Reitan Group as it grows and moves forward, it also gives us clear competitive advantages."

“We are delighted to be able to work with this Norwegian giant and look forward to a successful and continued working relationship."
