Montreal, Canada (PressExposure) August 04, 2009 -- Headquartered in Germany with hundreds of stores projected throughout EMEA, adidas was searching for a POS software and services solution that would combine centralized visibility into its store operations with rapid implementation and multi-national capacity. Raymark was selected for its ability to distribute the advanced functionality found in its Xpert-Seriesâ¢ software suite through a hosted software and services solution that supports adidas' intricate franchise network.
"Given our international reach and large number of stores, we were searching for a partner that could help us solve our EMEA-wide retail challenges in our franchise business while easily integrating to our back-end ERP solution," expressed Kerstin Brockmann, Sales Development Manager for adidas. "With Xpert-On Demandâ¢, our software logistics are outsourced, eliminating the need for a complicated infrastructure. It is a cost-effective, efficient method of granting accessibility to the software throughout the enterprise while preserving consistency, which is crucial when managing so many stores. With Xpert-Series'â¢ multi-language, multi-currency, multi-tax, fiscalization, and full-featured functionality, our franchisees can adhere to local language and operational requirements without sacrificing overall brand equity."
"We are very excited about working with adidas," states Marc Chriqui, Raymark's President. "When we first began collaborating, adidas made it very clear to us what their vision for this project was. Given our long-standing success with international implementations, we knew our Xpert-Seriesâ¢ was equipped to handle the language, taxation, and implementation issues that accompany such a venture. Raymark's hosted, full-featured Xpert-On Demandâ¢ incorporates our 20 years of international retail expertise into a centralized, streamlined delivery model.
