CINCINNATI--()--NRF Booth #3163

The Americas arm of retail software and services provider, PCMS, today announced that Giant Tiger Stores Limited has selected PCMS VISION BeanStore as its Point-of-Sale (POS) solution. Giant Tiger Stores Limited operates over 200 stores across Canada and is Canada’s leading discount retailer. The solution will replace a legacy system.

“Discount retailing is highly competitive,” said Jeff Scobie, Vice-President Information Systems, Giant Tiger Stores Limited. “After a review of the solutions available to the market, we selected PCMS to provide technology meeting the diverse, multi-sector needs of our business. PCMS and VISION BeanStore offer substantial value through a reduced cost of store system ownership as we move to a single-server solution and link our stores centrally, removing the investment in individual stores servers while providing more operational efficiency and higher levels of customer satisfaction.”

Scobie further cited the architectural strength of VISION BeanStore, allowing ease of integration to Giant Tiger back end systems, and PCMS’ proven experience and strong North American client base as important factors in the decision. BeanStore infrastructure will allow Giant Tiger to meet their specific business needs.

“BeanStore is enabling Giant Tiger to stay focused on their everyday low prices and their service to Canadian families,” added Andy Winans, CEO, PCMS Americas. “We look forward to a long partnership between our companies.”
