Highlights

Transform checkout

Today’s retailers are adding mobile, self-service, real-time inventory viewing, dynamic pricing, fuel, and many other store applications to stay competitive. The challenge is to create a seamless experience for customers, so that as they move from the point of sale (POS) to a kiosk, to a fuel pump, to the web; they see the same prices, receive the same discounts, and accrue the same loyalty points.

Toshiba Store Integrator Version 4 Release 2
Technical Requirements
Hardware
Requirements*
Depends upon the client solution, other processes running on the controller, and if virtual session failover is used.
(Fully enabled failover must have an equivalent capacity reserved on a backup controller.)

Typical transaction rates for the categories are:
  • Self checkout: 15 items/transaction, 14 transactions/hour/per lane.
  • Fuel: 1 item/transaction, 12 transactions/hour/session.
  • Portable Shopper: 30 items/transaction, 4 transactions/hour/session.
Recommended failover-enabled solution for a typical environment (with no additional load from other processes), consists of two controllers, each with a 2.0 GHz 2 processor.
  • For Controllers running Store Integrator in Java 6 or TDK8, a minimum of 2GB RAM is required.
  • For Controllers running Store Integrator in Java 2, a minimum of 1GB RAM is required.
Store Integrator V4.2 continues to support older terminals for the POS GUI.
The minimum terminal hardware for 4690 Classic includes:
  • A 500 MHz processor for single display
  • A 850 MHz processor for dual displays.
  • These provide acceptable performance for the unmodified base applications.
The recommended terminals for best performance of the Store Integrator GUI are 4800-743 terminals and any higher-end models. These terminals provide faster response and are better able to contain added value function to the GUI solution.
Note: if you use the SI GUI with complex graphical information, you might exceed the memory requirements for the terminal and or the controller.
 
For solution use only with no GUI, if you are using the digital receipts interface, the minimum terminal is:
  • 4690 Classic - 4800-743 (2.0 GHz processor) and 512 MB RAM
  • 4690 Enhanced - 4800-743 (2.0 GHz processor) and 1 GB RAM
Software

Operating system:
4690 OS must be one of the following:
  • 4690 OS V6.4 0D10, or later
