This was sent to me via email:
"The State of Oregon, acting by and through the Oregon Liquor Control Commission, (“Agency”), is issuing this Request for Information for a Point-of-Sale (POS) software for the Distilled Spirits Supply Chain to assist the Agency’s future buy decision. The desirable solution will merge computer hardware, software and peripheral equipment with improved operating practices for managing inventory for our liquor agent’s throughout the State of Oregon. The solution will increase accuracy and improve flexibility and responsiveness through real-time liquor inventory management and revenue capture."
Basically, they are soliciting information from POS vendors for a possible standard point of sale system to be used at all of the 280+ agency liquor stores in the state of Oregon.
If you are a liquor retailer, what are your thought on this? Are you OK with being told what POS system you must use in your store by a state agency?
I'm curious to know! Please comment on this post or contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
The results will be shared in a future blog post (less any personal information so there is no chance of retaliation).
