Retail Manager Solutions are delighted to announce that Poundland, Europe’s biggest single price discount retailer has chosen RMS’ metro Unified Comms and Print Controller Solutions to enhance its Store Communications and In-store Ticketing.
Using a common platform, all metro modules, of which there are 9 to choose from, operate seamlessly with each other removing the need for dozens of expensive and difficult to maintain applications from different vendors to consolidate into one interconnected suite.
The Unified Comms module will provide Poundland with a host of functional capability to manage communication and task management across its estate of 900+ stores, including the ability to send Voice, Video and Written communications down to individuals working in the store, ensuring they only hear, see and read information or tasks that are relevant to them or their role.
In addition to Unified Comms, they are also deploying metro‘s Print Controller module to streamline how Poundland creates, deploys and manages their in-store signage. All signage from everyday lines and special buys to offers and discounts can be created and fully deployed in minutes ‘on-demand’. Print Controller ensures that only the most current version of any signage is used and any damaged or missing signage takes just a few minutes to reprint.
The roll out is targeted to complete during Q2.
