Vodafone Hutchison Australia (VHA) has confirmed it will ditch the Vodafone arm's point of sale (POS) software provider in favour of the supplier of Hutchison's 3 brand.
Enterprise resource planning and point of sale vendor Pronto has sealed a deal to replace the current system in Vodafone's 170 stores with its own, more than doubling its presence in VHA retail outlets. Vodafone has been using Australian vendor, Transacta.
Hutchison's 90-odd 3 retail stores already use the Pronto system. The system is also the standard for VHA's Crazy Johns stores, which number just under 100.
Spokesperson for VHA, Greg Spears, said that the new retail system for Vodafone stores would go live by May.
VHA has made significant progress consolidating suppliers across the two businesses, with the company in the final stages of selecting its core network management partner. The deal is being contested by Huawei, and VHA's incumbent suppliers Ericsson and Nokia Siemens Networks.
