Technology specialist STL has won business with major Landmark and Today’s companies.
Following the announcement by Landmark member Hyperama that it was planning to open a third cash and carry depot, in Peterborough, it has appointed STL as its technology partner for the project.
This will involve the installation of Traderpos tills and the STL Merchandise Management System (MMS) to cover all aspects of the operation from goods in through purchasing to customer analysis.
Mark Johal, chief executive of Hyperama, commented: “Peterborough represents a major investment in our company and we were determined to install a system that was based on current technology giving us all the functionality that a modern depot requires.
“We have great and exciting plans for our new site and we needed a provider who could match our ambitions.”
STL chairman Mike McGee said: “We already work with Hyperama to provide their hand-held technology, but it was great to win the system for a whole branch.”
Today’s member Stax Trade Centres has announced a £150,000 investment in new tilling technology at its five cash and carry depots, and has placed the contract with STL.
Stax managing director Eddie Brady said: “We recognised that tilling solutions had moved on and after extensive trials chose the STL product.
“Customers and staff were extremely positive about the many new features as well as the modern look and feel. We are certainly looking forward to the roll out this year.”
Ivan Durkin, STL managing director, said: “We are delighted to extend our relationship with Stax Trade Centres with this substantial tilling deal.
“This comes hard on the heels of other recent business gains and we also expect to announce further wins in the near future.”
