Retail software designer and developer Peg Technology has signed on retailer Danks Holdings for the implementation of point-of-sale retail software across the company's 700 homeware and hardware stores across Australia.
The Danks Group includes retailers such as Home Hardware, Thrifty Link and Plants Plus, currently holding the mantle of the largest independent Australian distributor in its field.
The partnership with ASX-listed Peg Technology comes after an ongoing association between the two companies. Danks decided to go with Peg's Pacsoft system after a 12-month evaluation period.
According to Bruce Mackenzie, Peg Technology's managing director, the company intensively tested existing systems on the market. "To give some insight into the evaluation process, the product test involved approximately 700 tests and took four solid days to complete. Danks also visited a number of current users and carried out detailed financial analysis of the companies reviewed."
Peg Technology's customers include Virgin, SingTel, Gowing Bros, Ryda, Telstra Licensed Shops, National Geographic, Vodafone, Sportscene, Patagonia, Paddy Pallin and Table Eight.
"PEG is a one-stop-shop for retail software, service and e-commerce solutions. Our products allow the retailer to concentrate on the shopfront, rather than the mechanics that support and maintain the business," said Mackenzie.
