Fujitsu Strong in POS & Retail

Fujitsu has a strong business in POS and retail. While looking around what it was doing, we saw a familiar face, Tobias Nagel, once with Also and then involved in the A/V industry. However, he is now working for Online Software Ag, a Fujitsu partner.

Nagel was showing his company’s software running on a shelf-edge display system (supplied by Display Solutions of Munich) that uses 3, 6 or 12 individual TFT LCDs on the edge of the shelf. Online Software started from a business that supported the printing of signs and price labels in store, but has now developed this into a platform that can support print, digital signage, ESLs or even online. As Nagel said, if someone changes the price for a packet of coffee in the ERP system, it will be updated in the store, on the cash register, online and, of course, if needed, in print.

As we have recently heard, one of the biggest challenges in implementing omnichannel strategies is in getting data from one place to another so Online’s solution looks to be in a good position.
