Birth of Spar Angola
In an exciting development, Spar South Africa recently opened its first store in the oil-rich city of Cabinda in northern Angola. The modern, newly built store of 2 700sqm is a fully fledged supermarket with Bakery, Food-To-Go and Butchery service departments, a range of household appliances and a pleasant coffee shop where customers can take a break and relax.
Arch is operational on the all-in-one touch screen units – sturdy, compact and fanless hardware renowned for reliability and low maintenance, truly a POS device well suited for harsh African retail conditions. Arch in-store provides rich functionality to ensure an optimal store running at peak profitability. The full suite of Arch Retail products have been successfully implemented in the group, providing them the management tools to facilitate aggressive growth. These include Arch Enterprise (centralised head office module for multi stores), Arch Mobile (in-store, multi-functional mobile capability) and Financial Integration (seamless integration between Arch and Pastel).
Congratulations to Fidaa, Rodney and Luis and we wish them all the best with establishing not only the Kabinda store, but the Spar brand throughout Angola.
