Habitat Selects AURES for POS
Habitat implemented Microsoft Dynamics AX with Maginus to integrate their business processes online, in-store and in the warehouse. Whilst Dynamics AX offered a powerful solution, Habitat still needed new POS hardware capable of running the retail module. They asked Maginus for advice, and after weighing up a handful of suppliers, chose AURES to supply POS terminals to all UK stores. This case study was originally published on the AURES UK Website.
