Success Stories

Pricing

A large retailer brought in Nastel AutoPilot to monitor the pricing updates it regularly sent from its headquarters to its many branch outlets.  AutoPilot real-time monitoring ensured that the pricing data was consistent across POS, flyer printing, store management systems and the application that printed out pricing labels for merchandise on the shelves.  The result was improved sales and customer retention.

Tracking Orders
