Connect Africa integrates Arch Retail management solution

Arch Retail, integrated retail management solution of Spinnaker Software, was recently implemented in Zimbabwean Retail Group, Connect Africa, comprising of 11 stores and a warehouse in the Bulawayo region. The project was run against tight deadlines, since the previous software licenses expired towards the end of last year, dictating two Arch implementation teams doing parallel installations and implementations.

Arch is now operational in 5 Supermarkets, 3 Wholesalers, 2 Liquor stores and a Butchery. In addition to the in-store Arch solution, Arch Enterprise, at Head Office, allows for central management control of the entire operation.

On the financial side, operational information is also integrated into Pastel Evolution. With completion of this project, Arch is running in a total of 21 Zimbabwean stores, with a number of stores in the pipeline.

“The growth of Arch in Zimbabwe is in line with Spinnaker Software’s strategy to expand into Africa” says David Geldenhuys, marketing executive officer. “Arch is already well established in Botswana and Namibia, with a number of new projects being implemented in Angola and Mozambique”.
