DGN Retail, franchiser for the Hubo and Multimate retail formulas, has selected the shop automation solutions from Valk Solutions. The assignment also includes e-commerce possibilities.
DGN Retail, which is part of Euretco, is the largest service provider for DIY stores and builder”s merchants and has approx. 310 affiliated businesses. Professional expertise and service are important factors for Hubo as well as Multimate. This is one of the reasons for selecting the modern, future-proof and omni-channel ASPOS retail platform. Customers become the main priority in the store, where physical shops are fully integrated with the online environment. This is combined with a flexible and cost-efficient layout in record-keeping.
Mr Jack Zwager, controller at DGN Retail: “This decision was made after a careful selection procedure. We started with a request for information and examined various solutions. The businesses were actually involved via the shop automation commission. In the end, the proof of concept was the decisive factor. ASPOS is a complete and proven solution, and is 100% online in real-time. All data and transactions are managed centrally, which will give our customers a true omni-channel experience.”
In June, all Hubo and Multimate businesses were personally informed about the new shop automation during a regional meetings. Project activities will actually be started prior to the summer holidays. The aim is for all shops to switch to the new automated solution by mid-2017.
