Tokyo Convenience Stores Running Scala

Chris Sheldrake

Alpha Japan work with some of the most high profile retail companies in Japan and already has 150 systems deployed and another 300 scheduled to deploy by mid-2009 all, largely in the convenience store space.

Alpha Japan specialise in total system retail solutions and have chosen Scala to power their new ASP offering called ‘Primix VISION’

Guillaume Proux, Scala Asia Vice President lightheartedly told us earlier today “Thanks to Alpha Japan, we can pride ourselves in seeing our solution running whenever we go out and get a snack!”

This is a nice retail win and it’s great that it is delivered to retailers as an ASP / SaaS offering.

We have a couple more Tokyo stories for you this week and as it happens one of them is Scala based (we think) also.
