Xerxes to Integrate Fujitsu's GlobalSTORE with Loss Prevention Software

1/14/2004 - Fujitsu Transaction Solutions Inc. has signed Xerxes Computer Corporation as a value-added reseller for Fujitsu's iSTORE suite of retail hardware, software and services. Xerxes will market iSTORE to tier-two and tier-three general merchandise retailers.

As a value-added service, Xerxes also will integrate Fujitsu's GlobalSTORE application with software from Aspect Loss Prevention, a Xerxes subsidiary, creating an automated data interrogation tool that retailers can utilize to detect and reduce employee theft.

iSTORE is a Fujitsu Lifecycle Solution that includes the TeamPoS 2000 point-of-sale system, iPAD handheld terminal, GlobalSTORE POS software and an array of infrastructure management services.

"Our partnership with Xerxes has opened a new door for smaller retailers to benefit from iSTORE, putting them on a level playing field with larger national chains," said Cathy Boss-Fessel, director of channel marketing at Fujitsu. "The services and support that Xerxes brings to the table, combined with Aspect's loss prevention software, enhance iSTORE for retailers in this market and match Fujitsu's commitment to relentlessly reduce costs for retailers."

"Fujitsu holds an industry reputation for providing quality, flexible technology that can significantly benefit all retailers, specifically the tier-two and tier-three customers we serve," said David A. Duhaime, chief executive officer at Xerxes. "This partnership will enable us to help our customers' transition from legacy systems to the next generation of POS. We will be able to offer a complete package solution based on iSTORE."

Xerxes Computer Corporation, based in Bloomington, Minn., has been supplying and servicing businesses with quality used and refurbished midrange and POS computer hardware, as well as parts, maintenance and support solutions, since 1981.
