STL Solution is the Toast of Soho STL Technology Solutions the only IT provider focusing solely on developing new, integrated systems for the wholesale industry has won a threecontender bid to supply Soho Cash & Carry Ltd with a comprehensive solution that will improve its stock management efficiency. Rapidly growing Soho is a new member of the NisaToday group. It supplies alcohol to restaurants, pubs, offlicenses and independent retailers. Until now, it has run its business on an aging retail system. However, with its expansion into a new, 50,000’sq, purposebuilt depot in Wolverhampton, Soho recognised the need for an equally modern, purposebuilt IT solution to drive efficiencies throughout its operation. STL will provide Soho with its Merchandise Management System (MMS), STL Wholesale POS tilling solution and secure ‘chip and pin’ card payment system. It will also provide integration, customisation and support services. The solution will be installed in Soho’s Wolverhampton depot in the first week of December (08). As the stateoftheart STL solution is browserbased, Soho will then be able to link its existing Birmingham depot to the new Wolverhampton system via a VPN (Virtual Private Network) early in 2009. This will enable both locations to centrally manage stock and sales, ensuring increased efficiency and accuracy, and providing executives with a single, realtime view of operations. Bally Bahra, Managing Director of Soho Cash & Carry, said, ‘Tight stock and sales control is the cornerstone of our growth strategy: it not only impacts the costefficiency of our operation, but it directly impacts our customers’ purchasing experience. Because STL solutions are specifically designed to handle the unique customer and stock dynamics of a cash and carry business, we believe they will help us to deliver industry best service standards in the most costeffective way.’ About STL: www.stlsolutions.com STL Technology Solutions is the only IT provider developing integrated solutions for the delivered wholesale and cash & carry industry.
