JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Winn-Dixie Stores  here has chosen IBM point-of-sale and self-checkout technology for its 484 Winn-Dixie store locations, and other store formats across the Southeastern U.S.
Winn-Dixie, working in collaboration with IBM and SAM Group, will implement a network of 6,000 IBM SurePOS 700 systems equipped with IBM's SurePOS ACE and Retail Integration Framework software, which are components of IBM's Smarter Checkout solution. Winn-Dixie will also install IBM SurePoint infrared touch displays and SureMark thermal impact printers.
"This initiative will allow us to introduce services quickly and seamlessly to improve our guests' shopping experience and will help to support our overall strategy," said Maura Hart, Winn-Dixie group vice president and chief information officer, in a statement.
The deployment also includes IBM's Remote Management Agent (RMA), which enables pro-active monitoring, asset tracking and problem determination from one local store or an enterprise location, and Lotus Expeditor and Expeditor Integrator, which helps developers integrate a wide variety of applications for use on mobile devices, desktops and kiosks.
