New York – January 11, 2010 – Retail Pro achieved a major milestone today launching phase 1 of project "Aruba" at the National Retailers Federation conference. "Aruba" is the internal project name that demonstrates Retail Pro's serious commitment to delivering products that are flexible to fit the unique needs of today's retailers while also lowering total cost of ownership as Aruba was designed to work within the current hardware and infrastructure of today's retailers.
"We are extremely excited about project Aruba on a number of different levels", said Retail Pro CEO, Kerry Lemos, "Aruba marks a collaborative effort with our Customer and Partner Advisory Groups that provided essential input on current customer needs. Our customers were looking for a solution that can immediately meet their unique business needs and processes while improving total cost of ownership (TCO). Through thin-client architecture that runs on a centralized, organizational structure, Aruba delivers on those needs."
Project Aruba marks the first step toward the next generation of Retail Pro software. The first release, scheduled to be completed later this year, calls for a thin-client architecture that can be easily deployed with reduced hardware or infrastructure requirements that can be seamlessly integrated with existing versions of Retail Pro. The ultimate vision provides the power of choice for customers by creating a solution that can be deployed either on-premise or in the cloud via SaaS deployment to deliver what customers want: ease of use, reduced acquisition and maintenance costs, faster deployment and real-time data.
Lemos ended by saying, "At Retail Pro we are serious about delivering on our customers' needs and are committed to providing the best technology to our thousands of domestic and multinational customers. Aruba demonstrates that we are on track and poised for a very successful 2010. We couldn't ask for a better way to bring in the New Year."
