ALICE SPRINGS: Retravision chairman Bill Harries told delegates today at the Alice Springs Convention Centre that the retailer has appointed a chief information officer to help implement the largest project ever undertaken by the group.
Harries said the replacement of the point of sales information technology system, RMS, with a new package from SAP called Business One.
“To replace RMS, we want a system that replicates what we do today which is robust and is capable of our future requirements.”
Harries said that the Retravision group will now undertake a ‘blueprinting’ stage which will assess the system’s capabilities and will take approximately six months to complete.
To implement the change, Retravision has appointed a chief information officer who will be based in Melbourne and will report to the national board.
“This is largest project undertaken by the Group.”
