Best Buy Canada to roll out SOA-based mobile platform from Stella Nova

New York -- By the summer 2012, Best Buy Canada will start rolling out mobile point-of-sale (POS) in select Future Shop and Best Buy pilot store locations.

Implemented on the service oriented architecture (SOA)-based Stella Nova Mobile Retail Framework, the new mobile POS solution is architected to keep POS functionality independent of the mobile device and its operating system. This will enable the company to adapt seamlessly to future shifts in mobility trends and technology. The system will also allow the company to manage all aspects of customer interaction via a simple, intuitive user interface, keeping employee training to a minimum.
