eFuture Information Technology, a provider of software and services in China’s retail and consumer goods industries, has signed a contract to provide its eFuture ONE POS-ERP R2008 retail management system to Thailand-based Central Retail Corporation.
Once operational, the system is expected to provide Central Retail Corporation’s (CRC’s) department stores with a number of versatile subsystems through a user-friendly interface, including point-of-sale payment capabilities, a visualized store operation platform, customer relationship management, purchase order and inventory management, pricing management, customer service management, real-time cost management, back office administration and multi-dimension analysis, according to eFuture.
eFuture said that it will deploy the system in a trial stage at CRC’s department store in Hangzhou, China and expects the system to be fully operational by mid-2009. Pending a successful trial, eFuture management expects to deploy the system at follow-on projects in Beijing and Shenyang, China.
Adam Yan, chairman and CEO of eFuture, said: China’s retail sales are continuing on a healthy growth trend, and we’re pleased to see reputable international retailers like CRC turning to our leading software and services in order to compete in China. Our solutions help our clients increase efficiency and cut costs, capabilities that are increasingly important given today’s global economic backdrop.
