Jan 08, 2016

UTC RETAIL announced today that Maui Nix Surf Shop has recently decided to rollout UTC RETAIL’s POS and merchandising software to all of its retail locations.

“Maui Nix has been a customer of ours since 2008. We are so pleased that they have decided to extend their relationship with us and upgrade to our latest software offerings,” said Sam Villanti, President and CEO for UTC RETAIL. “They did a full competitive evaluation and found that we were the best fit for them. When you add in our in-depth understanding of their business and the exceptional level of service that we’ve provided to Maui Nix over the years, it’s easy to see why they felt that our solutions offered them an exceptional overall value.”

Maui Nix will be implementing UTC RETAIL’s POS-J POS software, along with the Gift Card and Loyalty solution, and they will be reusing their current 3170 POS hardware from UTC RETAIL. They will also be implementing the WinRetail merchandising application from JDS Solutions, a part o f Cegid Group, which UTC RETAIL is authorized to resell. Additionally, UTC RETAIL will be integrating POS-J and WinRetail with Maui Nix’s current e-commerce solution, Magento, to provide full-featured, real-time omni-channel support across the enterprise.

“I chose UTC RETAIL because, after looking at many different solutions, I felt that they understood the nature of my business better than anyone else,” said George Karamitos, Owner of Maui Nix Surf Shops. “The combination of POS-J and WinRetail together offers Maui Nix the best opportunity available for a totally complete solution. Also, the reporting and open-to-buy tools are exactly what any retailer will need to run an efficient company.”
