Retail One rolls on
Technology One's retail software solution, Retail One, has been picked up by two more Australian retailers.
The Perfume Connection and South Australian-based variety store Cheap as Chips have both signed contracts to roll out Retail One through their stores. Aimed at medium-to-large retailers, Retail One is proving popular because it addresses a market niche not catered for by large, overseas software companies, according to Technology One managing director, Adrian Di Marco.
The software can run on SQL Server, Oracle and Informix, as well as operating systems such as Windows NT and Unix.
