Tomax has released Retail.net 5.0 application suite for retail operations management. With the release of 5.0, the Retail.net application establishes new benchmarks in every dimension of computing performance, application breadth and scalability.

The initial Retail.net suite was the industrys first solution for delivering truly thin client applications across enterprise requirements from point-of-sale and in-store, through corporate operations management. The primary components include Customer, Transaction and Workforce Management, giving retailers visibility and realtime access to inventory, associates and customer information. In addition, Retail.net includes an integration and extensibility framework that enables rapid deployment with enterprise solutions for financials, warehousing and specialized planning. Single Instance And Scalability Combined Retail.net delivers a comprehensive, scalable platform in which all of the information about the retail enterprise, including item assortment, pricing, customers, associates and vendors are brought together in one place without the massive redundancy and data synchronization which plagues the traditional point solution model. The result is a highly efficient, yet deceptively simple application that allows previously unattainable levels of transaction and user scalability. Benchmarks have been already established demonstrating the ability to support over 1,000 POS devices per application server, which can be clustered to support literally thousands of online connected point-of- sale terminals simultaneously. Soon, information will be released on the full suite. Breakthrough Value Proposition The Retail.net suite has enjoyed exceptional customer acceptance on the strength of a value proposition based on: - Reducing the cost of delivering and maintaining applications by 50% or more - Speeding application implementation by two or three times - Improving associate productivity through simplification and integration of workflow and scheduling - Providing retailers a new paradigm from which to integrate customers between online and offline Over forty retail chains have adopted Retail.net, in whole or part, and are committed to the vision of reducing cost and complexity, centralizing data and applications, and creating new levels of customer service and convenience. These chains cover the spectrum from supermarket to specialty, several of which are listed below. Oracle Technology Foundation and Applications Integration Retail.net 5.0 is engineered to leverage the Oracle 9i database and application server foundation, allowing the deployment of true J2EE, thin-client architecture across the retail enterprise. Retail.net 5.0 is in full support of Oracles pioneering Real Application Clusters (RAC), which virtualizes server computing and provides superior failover with incremental capacity and performance management. Retail.net 5.0 is positioned to support Oracles 10g, soon to be released. In addition, Retail.net 5.0 makes available in-depth application integration capabilities with the Oracle Ebusiness Suite, including financials, inventory, purchase order management, and supply chain applications. Application Enhancements Literally hundreds of application innovations and enhancements have been rendered in the Retail.net 5.0 release, making it an exciting new version of an application already in existence. Its an entirely new foundation that retailers can access, deploy quickly, and scale tremendously within their retail environments. Retail.net 5.0 supports application depth and robustness allowing it to accommodate multiple retail segments including supermarket, drug, general merchandise, specialty and service-oriented retail environments.
