The Foschini Group consists of 13 trading divisions dealing in lifestyle products ranging from fashion, jewelry, accessories and cosmetics, to outdoor apparel, sporting equipment and homeware.
The Postilion architecture deployed for The Foschini Group aims to achieve as close to 100% uptime as possible, ensuring that any single point of failure in the system would have minimal impact on the group’s customers at the checkout points.
Brent Curry, IT director at The Foschini Group, said: More and more of our customers use cards as their payments instrument of choice. Thanks to the Postilion implementation, the group is now able to offer faster and more accurate service at the checkout. Our store staff is very impressed with the ease of use and speed of the new system, and our finance department is able to reconcile transactions faster, which provides us with important financial benefits.
Earlier in November 2008, Blue bank of Valley has implemented Postilion Retail Internet Banking to offer its customers and employees with integrated, self-service banking services.
