Fujitsu Retail Suite 4.4 (FRS 4.4): FRS 4.4 delivers omni-channel integration of store systems, offering retailers a single, comprehensive view of inventory and the ability to sell merchandise from alternate locations when it is unavailable in-store. It connects point-of-sale, order management and ERP solutions for real-time updates on inventory count and location that can be leveraged to make a sale. The upgrade expands support for tablets with an enhanced user interface that is more user-friendly and mobile-centric. Mobile devices and fixed point-of-sale solutions run Fujitsu GlobalSTORE® software on the same application and interface, enabling an easy transition for store employees, while at the same time delivering significant cost savings for the retailer.
FUJITSU U-Scan® Genesis® II Self-Checkout: FUJITSU U-Scan Genesis II self-checkout features a new sleek and elegant form factor with faster, more reliable and more energy efficient components.

The future-proof design incorporates Intel 4th generation processors from Celeron® processors to Intel®i5 vPro™ processors as well as the latest Active Management Technology to further reduce cost of ownership and help to increase availability.

The devices enable mobile-relevant applications and services for click 'n' collect, clienteling, loyalty, in-store support and store-associate tasking.

The solution addresses the massive volumes of data created from sources including social media, video, text and real-time presence sensing, enabling retailers to move from reactive to predictive selling and operational management. Fujitsu WiFi analytics enables store operators to sense the presence of customers, predict their buying behaviors and prompt sales associates to engage and fulfill customer shopping desires in real-time. It can also be employed to map customer and associate movement in the store to improve inventory management, visual merchandising, loss prevention and sales productivity.
