- Fujitsu has been selected to deploy and support end-to-end point of sales solutions in COOP grocery stores across Sweden
- Solution aims to accelerate the checkout process in stores and decrease environment footprint by energy savings, and will provide a foundation for COOP to roll out future interactive customer-focused capabilities

In a highly competitive market, grocery retailers like COOP must innovate to ensure the best possible experience for customers and to retain market share. Fujitsu was selected for the grocer’s transformation for its unique ability to provide an end-to end service, including products and services.
Karin Schreil, Managing Director of Fujitsu Sweden, says: “In the grocery industry, in particular, retailers are facing rapid change, while intense competition puts pressure on operating expenses. In addition, they must manage constantly changing customer preferences and shopping behaviors. To address these challenges, grocers need an infrastructure to serve customers efficiently today, and to provide solid foundations for introducing improvements and enhanced functionality over time. The flexible infrastructure that we are implementing for COOP allows the retailer to focus on its stores, product lines and customer satisfaction, while Fujitsu takes care of its ICT.”
The transformation of the COOP infrastructure also ensures that the grocer is able to roll out additional customer-focused capabilities at a later date, for example touch screens Fujitsu will also deploy Windows 10 IoT for COOP, opening up further potential for the grocer to harness data captured by smart devices to derive insights in the future.
