True Value signs new three-year deal with ECi

BY HBSDEALER Staff

ECi Software Solutions announced that ECi RockSolid POS has entered into a new three-year agreement with Chicago-based True Value Company. 

The software solutions provider said that the deal will allow more True Value retailers to benefit from RockSolid POS.

“We are very excited about this new partnership with True Value,” says Scott Stanford, President of the ECi LBMH division. “This is a great opportunity to reach out to more True Value retailers with a software solution that is affordable and a team to support their needs.”

ECi RockSolid POS is a Preferred POS Vendor for True Value.

True Value’s Retail Systems Team has been driving adoption of its Preferred POS Vendors for five years. Because True Value’s principal business is not software, it is moving back to a direct sales model where the Preferred POS Vendors sell directly to the retailer, according to ECi. To facilitate this move, True Value has agreed to transfer the sales function to ECi Software Solutions. It will be more effective to have ECi RockSolid, with its robust, targeted sales group, sell directly both to the existing True Value RockSolid retailers, and to retailers not currently on a preferred system.

The software company also said RockSolid accounts for the vast majority of point of sale (POS) system implementations among True Value retailers over the past five years.

Do it Best will build a new DC in Missouri

BY HBSDEALER Staff

Do it Best plans to build a $30 million Retail Service Center (RSC) in Sikeston, Mo, replacing the Fort Wayne, Ind.-based co-op’s existing facility in nearby Cape Girardeau.

The co-op said the new RSC will incorporate the latest technologies in warehouse distribution, including a highly accurate voice-pick system. Further investment will also be made in state-of-the-art efficiencies captured by maximizing workflow from receiving to shipping. The facility will offer more than 550,000 square feet of warehousing space, along with a 40% increase in the amount of cubic footage available for the inventory and distribution of hardware and lumber products.

“This investment – and the new facility it will create – will not only help us continue to meet our members’ current needs but will position us well for our future growth plans,” said Do it Best Corp. President and CEO Bob Taylor. “The review and evaluation process in selecting a new RSC site was thorough and exhaustive, and helped us arrive at a decision that we believe is the right one for our members, our co-op and all of our team members.”

Do it Best Corp. established its current RSC in Cape Girardeau – its first distribution center outside of Indiana – in 1971. It employs 115 team members and services member-owners in Alabama, Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska and Tennessee.

The selection to rebuild in Sikeston was influenced by a desire to retain as many current employees as possible. The Sikeston site also provides land options with room for future expansion, according to the co-op.

Jetzt Prepaid Vergleich
Jetzt Prepaid Vergleich sichern, denn dort kann billig telefoniert werden, für ca. 7,5 ct/min! Im Prepaid Tarife Check gibt es verschiedene Testsieger, geordnet danach, bei wem man am günstigsten pro Minute telefonieren kann. Es werden außerdem die verschiedenen Datenflatrates erläutert, bei denen man dann via Handy oder Smartphone auch in der Straßenbahn mobil surfen kann. Ganz wunderbar, denn bei Prepaid Tarifen weiß man immer, dass man nicht zuviel ausgibt für sein Hobby. Aus diesem Grund empfehle ich den Prepaid Tarife Vergleich bei prepaidvergleich.tv. Ich habe die Möglichkeit, zwischen eplus, congstar oder bildmobil zu wählen und dann entsprechend einen Tarif auszusuchen.
