Catalogue retailer The Orvis Company has successfully deployed retail software supplier NSB's Connected Retailer Store Solution throughout its chain of 30 plus US stores.

The rollout followed a successful two-store pilot in September 2004 and was completed in less than four months.

Orvis says that it is already seeing many benefits from using the solution, including better tracking of cross-channel promotions, much faster checkouts of routine purchases and improved operational efficiency in back office store tasks.

NSB Group is a total solutions provider for retailers of apparel, footwear, and specialty merchandise.

Orvis operates mail order, e-commerce, retail, and wholesale businesses from its headquarters in Manchester, Vermont.
