Marks & Spencer plans Epos replacement

Will Hadfield

Marks & Spencer is planning to replace its existing Epos system with the Beanstore application from software supplier PCMS.

The UK’s largest clothing retailer will roll out Beanstore to all its stores by 2010. Testing on the new application will be completed by the end of this year.

Marks & Spencer’s IT director Darrell Stein, who joined the company last autumn, said, “The working relationship between the two organisations is one that has developed into a strong partnership and we are confident that we will deliver a market-leading solution.

“PCMS was chosen because of the rich functionality of its system.”

The decision to invest in a new Epos system is the latest in a series of significant IT investments by the retailer.

Marks & Spencer is the largest retail user of item-level RFID tagging in the world. The retailer is expanding the tagging of clothing items to 120 stores from the middle of May.

The company launched a new e-commerce platform developed in partnership with Amazon at the end of March.
