PHILADELPHIA (Sept. 16, 2004) — Pep Boys—Manny, Moe & Jack recently partnered with Datatec Systems to implements its new retail technology across the chain's 595 retail stores.
Datatec Systems will provide the professional services needed to prepare equipment and implement a new point-of-sale system, Philadelphia-based Pep Boys said. The upgrade is part of Pep Boys' plans to improve customer service and integrate its retail and service departments.
For the conversion, Datatec teams will upgrade a store's infrastructure then roll in the racks of new equipment and install the POS systems in an orchestrated effort to get each site online, Pep Boys said. The first phase of the project is expected to be complete by the end of the year.
