Built on the SAP NetWeaver® technology platform, the DataXstream POS application is easy to deploy

DataXstream (, the designer and provider of a fully integrated Point of Sale (POS) solution, announced today the successful implementation of its POS system for Fruit Growers Supply Company (FGS). DataXstream will support all of FGS’s multiple retail locations in California and Arizona.

“DataXstream's Point of Sale solution enabled FGS to seamlessly migrate from their existing POS solution to DataXstream’s solution with minimal impact to the business,” said DataXstream’s CEO Tim Yates. “By overlaying their existing order processes with our solution, we are able to maintain legacy orders and at the same time implement a new POS order process, allowing them to expand their overall store solution and capabilities. Our solution simplifies their POS order process, streamlines and reduces transaction cycle time, and adds significant capability to each terminal: advanced hardware integration, flexible controls, and the ability to implement complex specialty retail transaction processes.”

The POS solution works with the SAP® ERP application and provides traditional POS functionality as well as advanced order management capabilities. Built on the SAP NetWeaver® technology platform, the DataXstream POS application is easy to deploy through SAP portal technology or a browser and features real time inventory visibility across the supply chain. DataXstream’s solution helps organizations leverage live reporting of their business activities – an invaluable benefit for store operations and management reporting.

“DataXstream’s POS solution was not only able to meet our complex retail needs, but did so in a cost-effective way. All the while helping us meet PCI compliance and further ensuring future upgrade compatibility,” said Alex Perlovich – Director of IT, FGS

“DataXstream not only provided a robust Point of Sale solution but also helped with a smooth transition through comprehensive planning and testing,” added Charles Boyce - Vice President, Finance and CFO, FGS

The DataXstream POS application for SAP ERP provides complete back office connectivity as well as comprehensive functionality for retail locations such as support for sales promotions and complex pricing. The system also supports better customer service through increased visibility to customer history and product availability, which is a common need in specialty retail environments.
