The Co-operative is selling its retail technology to competitors after the system proved a success in 3,000 stores...
in the UK.
The InControl-Evolution software is an electronic point of sale and store management system which has a set off applications that can be "mixed and matched".
The applications include stick control, shelf replenishment and mobile terminal functionality.
It also has a feature that switches off tills, receipt printers, customer and operator screens, chip and Pin devices and barcode scanners when stores close, and powers them up again the following morning before stores open.
The system has a dedicated team supporting it.
