Storis Completes Conversion at Furniture Factory Direct
By Home Furnishings Business in Retail Technology on April 2007
Three-store Seattle-area retailer Furniture Factory Direct has completed its conversion to Storis Management Systems Vision R8 store automation system. FFD decided to switch to Mt. Arlington, N.J.-based Storis product last Fall.
While looking at technology systems, I was most impressed by Storis outstanding reputation, their robust technology, elite client base, and unparalleled experience in the furniture industry, said Zarko Todorov, president of Furniture Factory Direct. We were looking for a system that could provide us with real-time inventory. We found that capability with Storis.
Furniture Factory Direct is utilizing Storis real-time inventory applications: Radio Frequency Barcode to track multiple locations and Mobile Vision. Mobile Vision uses Microsoft Pocket PC technology, which supports WiFi radio-frequency connectivity and bar code scanning capability, with the goal of providing the retailers sales force with instant information access. By scanning a products bar code and using WiFi capabilities, salespeople gain instant access to product descriptions, pricing and real time inventory availability.
