Datalogic has recently signed a partnership agreement with the PAC 2000A Group, a retail cooperative affiliated to the Conad Group (Consorzio Nazionale Dettaglianti). The agreement between the two companies stipulates that PAC 2000A members shall be entitled to buy Datalogic devices through a single channel for delivery at predefined conditions.
PAC 2000A has grown rapidly over the past few years, achieving a consolidated production value of about 2.5 billion euro, which make it the most important retail group in the regions of central and southern Italy (Umbria, Lazio, Campania and Calabria), as well as the largest cooperative in the Conad world. In order to cover its about 1,000 points of sale and over 3,000 checkouts it has become necessary to streamline the Group’s Supply Chain by reducing costs for its affiliates.
The agreement with Datalogic has made it possible to achieve this goal with a high-quality service delivering cutting-edge products at a competitive price.
The range of solutions offered by Datalogic to PAC2000A includes the Magellan 9800i, Magellan 8400, Magellan 3200Vsi, Magellan 3300 Hsi, Magellan 1100i and QuickScan 2400 2D bar code scanners, all of fitted with a state-of-the-art imaging technology.
As for future prospects, further technological solutions may be added to the agreement, for example the Jade X7 portal scanner, the new totally automated Datalogic checkout system which speeds up both product scanning and payment from customers, thus reducing management costs and increasing production value.
