DFS Group has selected Transactionware Enterprise as its next-generation point-of-sale (POS) platform.

DFS Group is the worlds largest duty-free retailer for international travelers. The company operates approximately 200 stores throughout North America, Asia and the Pacific Basin, including 12 DFS Galleria flagship stores in select resorts and major cities, as well as duty-free stores in leading hotels and major international airports. DFS chose Transactionware Enterprise as the foundation for a single POS platform and Store Enterprise platform that fully integrates with IBMs J2EE middleware stack -- IBM WebSphere Application Server 5.0, IBM WebSphere MQ and IBM DB2 Universal Database. The project will begin with implementation at two airport locations and a new high-end Galleria store in Okinawa, Japan, with more than 100 POS, customer service and manager workstations. Cost savings and flexibility, along with seamless integration to IBM middleware, were key factors in DFS Groups selection of Transactionware Enterprise. By replacing multiple legacy POS platforms, Transactionware Enterprise will immediately help drive down DFS Groups Total Cost of Ownership for store and enterprise systems. As a true J2EE (Java 2 Enterprise Edition) solution, Transactionware Enterprise matches DFS Groups strategy of a single J2EE enterprise architecture. And Transactionware Enterprises flexible architecture can be easily adapted to DFS Groups unique business requirements, which include internationalization, real-time connectivity with enterprise applications and the ability to mix duty-free and duty-paid purchases within the same physical store environment. Triversitys Transactionware Enterprise is the most cost-effective, easily deployed J2EE (Java 2 Enterprise Edition) solution available today for POS and Point-of-Interaction applications in the retail enterprise. Transactionware Enterprise is the first and only Java POS solution designed from the ground up to harness the power of J2EE. Its highly scalable, open architecture allows retailers to deploy solutions ranging from true thin-client to thick-client systems, on up to massively scalable enterprise server environments that handle billions of transactions per year.
