Shoe Retailer Gets 40% More Energy Efficient Checkout Computers
An upgrade of point-of-sale computers for a major footwear retailer has resulted in a system that is 40 percent more energy efficient than typical desktop computers used at checkout.
Nashville-based Genesco sells footwear, headwear and accessories in more than 2,240 retail stores in the United States and Canada, under the store banners Journeys, Journeys Kidz, Shi by Journeys, Johnston & Murphy, Underground Station, Hatworld, Lids, Hat Shack, Hat Zone, Head Quarters and Cap Connection.
Fujitsu handled the upgrade, using dual-core processor equipment in shock-resistant components that can withstand the rigors of the retail environment.
The new system was tested in 65 stores during the fall of 2008. Full rollout was achieved last year.
