Delray Beach, FL-based Ecometry is partnering with the IBM Point of Sale (POS) Retail Store Solution Group. The partnership results from a relationship IBM had with ADS Retail, an Upper Marlboro, MD-based provider of point-of-sale software, which Ecometry acquired in October 2005.
ADS Retail began its IBM Business Partner relationship in 1983 and became a POS business partner in 1986. ADS Retail sold more than 25,000 POS terminals in addition to store severs and AS/400 (now eServer I Series) midrange servers.
Ecometry will be selling IBM POS hardware and will provide ADS Retail’s customers with redistribution services, including assembling hardware components, loading software, testing, andrepackaging as one unit so that when equipment arrives at a store, the store clerk simply plugs in the POS to have it up and running.
