"Point of Sale Limited (Nasdaq: POSI) today announced that it
has finalized an agreement to provide TESCO PLC with key components
of the web-based application software that powers Point of Sale's
recent global Application Service Provider (ASP) initiative."
"Implementing the software on its own internal server farm,
Tesco will use some of the same functionality available via Point
of Sale's U.S.-based ASP, StoreAlliance.com, and its Israeli-based
counterpart StoreAlliance.co.il, while relying on its own resources
for IT support and infrastructure maintenance to the system."
"The three-year agreement allows Tesco to deploy the
ASP/thin-store concept initially in more than 800 stores in the
U.K., Ireland and France, and later in additional Tesco stores
throughout Asia Pacific and Central Europe. The agreement also
includes a corporate license for Point of Sale's soon
to-be-released checkout system that runs on the Linux operating
system. The Linux-based solution will support Tesco's global IT
strategy for implementing and maintaining a single point-of-sale
system across all its 20,000 checkout lanes in eight
