Cabela’s to deploy SAP point-of-sale application

BY Marianne Wilson

Sidney, Neb. — SAP America Inc., a subsidiary of SAP AG, announced that Cabela’s Inc. has selected the SAP point-of-sale application to support its retail expansion and enhance its customer experience.

The hunting, fishing and outdoor gear retailer will leverage out-of-the-box functionality inherent in SAP POS to provide increased customer service, as well as system and sales associate efficiency, SAP said.

“It is at the point of sale that our customers receive the last impression of our retail stores," said Michael Copeland, executive VP and COO, Cabela’s. “A faster, more efficient system will result in increased sales associate productivity and provide improved service at this vital customer touch point.”

The application allows retailers to customize the shopping experience and support better omni-channel operations with seamless store, web and mobile integration. With SAP POS, employees can learn the functionality quickly and the retailer can benefit from improved staff productivity and lower operating costs while achieving greater flexibility.

“During the deployment of SAP POS, emphasis will be placed on using out-of-the-box functionality and limiting customizations,” said Dave Kardesh, VP and CIO, Cabela’s. “Integration of cross-channel functionality will be incorporated along with other features that our customers are looking for.”

Online gifting service Wrapp makes U.S. debut; launch partners include H&M, Gap and Sephora

BY Marianne Wilson

New York — Wrapp, a new online gift service from Sweden, has launched in the United States, partnering with such retailers as Gap, H&M and Sephora to let consumers send free virtual gift cards to friends on Facebook.

Wrapp launched in Sweden at the end of last year, and has since gone live in Norway and the United Kingdom, Germany, France and The Netherlands. An application that runs on mobile devices and computers, Wrapp provides users with free gift cards (typically for a small amount of value) from participating retailers that they can send to a Facebook friend. Users can also add more money on to the card before sending it to a friend on Facebook. The friend can redeem the card online, via a mobile device or in a store.

Retailers who participate in Wrapp can set the criteria for their cards, such as the expiration date, the target demographic and the like.

Wrapp’s founders include the world-famous tech expert Hjalmar Winbladh, a co-founder of Sendit, and a co-founder of Rebtel, the world’s largest independent mobile VoIP firm. Former H&M chief executive Fabian Mansson is Wrapp’s chairman.
