IT Infrastructure

Success for a convenience store retailer is often based on the quality and uniqueness of the customer experience. To enhance it, many retailers are adopting new technologies like mobile payments, digital kiosks, and self check-out. There are also mandatory technology requirements to address PCI compliance and protect credit card data. All these technologies must be manageable, secure, and simple for convenience stores to deploy.
