Omnix deploys POS for Sharjah Co-operative Society
The new POS solutions should speed up transaction time and improve efficiency.

Systems integrator Omnix International is carrying out the deployment of 80 point of sale terminals for the Sharjah Co-operative Society (SCS).

The deployment is part of a multi-million dirham IT project, begun in 2011, to completely redesign SCS' IT infrastructure. The project has already seen the provision of a new data centre for SCS, including virtualized blade servers and storage, and an new ERP application to improve management and provide analysis of customer buying patterns and trends to ensure maximum profitability across the business.

The new POS solution is intended to significantly reduce cashier waiting times and in turn improve efficiencies.   In addition, a new IT Service Management (ITSM) system will be implemented to leverage its services at all levels.

Jamal Abuissa, president and CEO of Omnix International said: "We are proud to announce this major deal with SCS, our strategic partner in Sharjah, where we have successfully transformed their IT infrastructure with the best-in-class technology. We have worked exceptionally closely with the SCS team to fully understand their business and to utilize our best resources to make their business model more robust, efficient and ultimately more profitable. Key to our bespoke service is that we support their business 24x7 to ensure it runs smoothly at all times. We are delighted to be SCS's partner and to contribute in their long-term growth and success in the years ahead."

Maged Al Jenaid, general manager of SCS commented: "We chose the team at Omnix because they really understood our business needs and recommended a state-of-the-art IT system that enables us to analyze data, immediately share information across branches, communicate better with our customers and staff, in addition to the ongoing invaluable support from the Omnix IT services team. This transformation will support our steady and profitable growth as we continue to expand."
