NEW YORK, Jan. 10, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Retalix® (Nasdaq:RTLX), today announced the launch of the Retalix 10 Store Suite targeted at retailers with high-volume, highly complex environments. "Retalix 10 takes the concept of store software solutions and architecture to a new level by efficiently and seamlessly combining major customer-centric retail functions—customer touch points, store management, targeted promotions and loyalty—into a unified solution based on one software 'engine'," said Shuky Sheffer, CEO of Retalix. "I am very excited about the Retalix 10 launch, and am positive that this innovative suite will enable retailers to elevate their businesses in today's highly competitive and fast-changing markets," Sheffer added. Several leading retailers have already shown avid interest in Retalix 10, including Tesco Plc., the third-largest grocery retailer worldwide and a Retalix business partner since 1995. Tesco is already in the process of upgrading its store solutions worldwide to the new Retalix 10 Store Suite, for rollout in 2011. Printemps, a leading French department store chain with 17 stores, as well as Shufersal, the leading Israeli supermarket chain with 260 stores, have both already successfully rolled out earlier versions of Retalix 10 across their enterprises. "Retalix 10's unique, innovative architecture features a single software "engine" which encapsulates all business logic and services of the Retalix 10 applications; it drives all store functions and thus offers an unmatched level of business and operational flexibility, fast time-to-market and reduced costs," Sheffer said. The suite has been designed to unify the management and deployment of in-store systems, online storefronts and mobile commerce opportunities, and to provide a seamless customer experience across multiple touch points and channels, including point-of-sale (POS), self-checkout, self-scanning, customer kiosks, customer scale terminals, online storefronts and a variety of applications for mobile devices like smartphones and tablet computers (patent pending). The suite also delivers personalized, targeted promotions and loyalty programs through seamless integration with Retalix's Customer Management and Marketing Suite, and includes a set of store and inventory management applications.
Retalix 10 also features agile development methodologies and easy extensibility, as well as advanced capabilities of flexible deployment alternatives—thin, thick and hybrid; this innovative architecture drives significant benefits of reducing total cost of ownership (TCO) and facilitating quick delivery of new functionality to the business.The suite is compatible with all standard retail hardware platforms, as well as with a variety of legacy and third-party systems—providing retailers with flexibility and protection of their IT investments. It can also incorporate sales of add-on e-services such as air-time, lottery and more. Retalix 10 utilizes advanced Microsoft technologies to ensure scalability and resilience, and support the innovative architecture design. The Retalix 10 Store Suite is being presented at Retalix's booth #2119 at the National Retail Federation's (NRF) 100 th Annual Convention and Expo, Jan. 9-12, 2011 in New York.
