Aldata Solution introduced a series of enhancements to its Aldata G.O.L.D. Core Retail Suite. First, the company added product information management capabilities to its item- and price-management module. The addition will enable buyers to bring items into their supply chain more quickly, as well as locally manage items, sites and vendors.
The suite’s new Distribution Center Capacity Planning Module supports accurate forecasting of promotional demand and allows for better allocation of forecasting quantities based on store need.
Aldata also upgraded the suite’s mobile functionality to bolster store ordering, inventory management, out-of-stock management and retail price management to be executed via handheld devices. These enhancements also support integration to most label printers so companies can print new price tags in real time.
Innovative Office Products
Retailers now have three new point-of-sale mounting arms to support front-end peripherals. The options, provided by Innovative Office Products, Easton, Pa., promise to save space, protect technology and enhance the store-level landscape.
The 9183 adjustable countertop mount can be adjusted with an integrated knob on its telescoping tube, and can be pivoted or turned to suit the user’s needs. It is available in three telescope heights: 11 to 15 inches, 15 to 23 inches and 23 to 29 inches.
The 9189 adjustable through-counter mount has an arm tube that passes through the counter to provide a secure mount for displays. The unit, which can be pivoted or turned, also comes in three sizes: adjustable from 7 to 12 inches, 7 to 24 inches and 7 to 36 inches.
Finally, the 9190 compact countertop mount is perfect for smaller work areas. The unit’s space-saving arm allows for quick adjustment of monitor tilt.
All POS products feature secure cable management to protect IT hardware investments, quick and easy installation, adjustable heights and angles to accommodate users of all sizes, and durable, retail-hardened products to withstand intense usage.
