Wakefern completes front-end POS revamp
Elizabeth, N.J. Wakefern Food Corp. has completed the conversion of the POS checkout systems at the 262 PriceRite and ShopRite stores that make up its cooperative, switching from the IBM 4690 SA system to the IBM ACE system. The conversion, which took 18 months, involved software, hardware and networking.
Wakefern has also approved as an optional technology the LaneHawk anti-shrink POS system, from Evolution Robotics, Pasadena, Calif. Currently, the system is live in seven stores operated by five Wakefern members.
