Office Depot Deploys SignAge™ Sign Printing System
Retailer estimates savings of over $5 million in labor costs
Minneapolis, MN - December 1, 2001 - Retail Technology Solutions®, a leading provider of automated sign printing solutions and data processing technologies for retailers, announces the deployment of SignAge, a complete end-to-end retail printing solution, to Office Depot’s entire chain of stores in the US and Canada.
RTS’s Web-based SignAge™ software suite allows Office Depot to deliver dynamic yet visually consistent signage across its chain of stores. The previous sign system was cumbersome and required too much time to print and set Office Depot’s weekly promotional ad. The SignAge system will save labor costs by using automatic overnight printing.
The front end component of system, SignStation, is web-based which allows store signage to be printed from any workstation in the store. The SignAge system is directly integrated with Office Depot’s existing plan-o-gram and product databases. This allows all printed signage to be sorted in Aisle/Bin & plan-o-gram order for efficient hanging. The new system is estimated to save each store over 1 hour of labor every day. This increase in store operational efficiency will save Office Depot over 5 million dollars in its first year of operation alone.
