IT solutions provider Fujitsu Transaction Solutions Inc has completed the rollout of its point-of-sale technology replacement for leading specialty retailer Nordstrom.

The contract, announced in January 2002, covered more than 150 US stores, which were transformed with new TeamPOS 2000 POS terminals, GlobalSTORE software and professional installation services.

The new store systems technology is assisting salespeople to improve the transaction flow at POS. Jan Walsh, vice president and business information officer for Nordstrom, said: "By coupling Fujitsu's software and hardware, we have a platform capable of delivering new functionality to the point of service."

To ensure that all equipment works flawlessly, all Fujitsu POS terminals were integrated and tested in the company's Foothill Ranch, California staging and integration facility.

Nordstrom Inc is one of the nation's leading fashion specialty retailers, with 152 US stores located in the US.

Fujitsu Transaction Solutions Inc, a wholly owned subsidiary of Fujitsu Limited, is an IT 'lifecycle solutions' provider for consumer transaction environments.
