A powerful interface between the retailer and vendor


Wipro is a member of Association of Retail Technology Standards (ARTS), UCC Net and EPC Global

Complexity of POS Testing


In today's competitive landscape, the Point-of-Sale system is a key differentiator for retailers. POS systems need to meet changing business needs under tight budgets and aggressive timelines. With POS systems increasingly customized to retailer requirements, vendor tests may be insufficient, requiring retailers themselves to invest in testing Retailers recognize testing as a clear area of opportunity to shrink timelines, reduce costs and improve quality. Effecting tangible improvements in testing is often a daunting task given the unique challenges with the POS testing landscape.
