Trying to get your printer, scanner, computer and software to work together at point of sale? UnifiedPOS is the standard that allows retailers to mix and match to develop systems that meet their needs – saving money and improving functionality in the process.
The Operational Data Model (ODM) incorporates transactional information used daily in retail stores – everything from inventory management and price management to sales reporting and workforce management.
The Data Warehouse Model (DWM) complements ODM and helps retailers identify and track the key performance indicators that inform better decision making and analysis.
Looking to add new programs and services but need to make sure the applications will work with existing software? Check out ARTS Standard XML Schemas.
XML Schemas build on the operational data model and provide defined structure that helps different applications speak the same language. When software conforms to the schema, retailers can add new applications to existing infrastructure. That makes it easier to implement new services for customers – like loyalty programs, inventory searching, price checking – just to name a few.
Business Process Models
Business Process Models (BPM) help retailers figure out how to support their company’s goals with the most efficient processes. It’s not just for companies starting from scratch – growing businesses can find ways to pinpoint weaknesses and strengthen their operations.
Many companies spend a huge amount of effort researching new technology solutions to avoid overlooking a key requirement that can extend timelines and drive up costs. Our Standard RFPs help shorten the time retailers spend researching new applications.
ARTS is a community dedicated to helping retailers and solution providers identify, adopt and integrate current and emerging information technology. We set our priorities by listening to other NRF communities: CMOs, CIOs, Loss Prevention and Shop.org. They are the "what," we are the "how."
