Independent Grocer Package
IBM Retail Store Solutions

Put industry-leading POS technology to
work for you
As an independent grocer, you face
a number of challenges: competitive
pressures from supercenters and
national chains, smaller IT budgets,
tightening labor pools, and less
flexibility to compete on price and
volume. IBM understands what you
are up against, and has developed
the IBM SurePOS

ACE Independent
Grocer Package – an affordable,
complete solution that is easy to
acquire and install and includes the
point-of-sale (POS) hardware, software
and peripherals needed to help stay
competitive and grow your business.
Rely on industry expertise
For over 30 years, IBM has helped top
grocery retailers thrive by providing
them with reliable, industry leading POS
solutions. Now you can acquire the
same solutions and technical support
as large chain grocers at a price that
makes sense for your business. The
IBM SurePOS ACE Independent Grocer
Package is available through a wide
network of authorized IBM Business
Partners who have experience in the
grocery industry, and are backed by
industry-leading product solutions and
support from IBM.
Powerful solutions for independent grocers
Providing the foundation for the IBM
SurePOS ACE Independent Grocer
Package is the comprehensive IBM
SurePOS ACE POS application. IBM
SurePOS ACE is designed to support
virtually any POS activity including:
scanning for quick throughput during
checkout; electronic marketing for loyalty
programs and price promotions; as
well as data maintenance and account
management for managing store
information and streamlining reporting.
New features of the solution include:

Open department key

eliminates time-consuming

‘unknown department’ errors,

helping save time and improve
departmental accountability

PIN encouragement
– processes
payments as debits instead of

credits, helping to reduce transaction
processing costs

Terminal offline
– records
transactions even if the controller
is unavailable, helping to improve
uptime and provide the continuation
of uninterrupted store operations

Tender variety mapping key

– customizes unique tender types,
eliminating the need for unique key
sequences for each tender type and
helping speed transaction times

Weight signaling
– provides audible
weight notification, helping to confirm
the successful weigh-in of an item

IBM SurePOS ACE for 4690 OS
IBM SurePOS ACE for 4690 OS is

a comprehensive POS application
designed to help independent grocery
retailers maximize customer service,
improve reliability at the POS and take
the first step toward an on demand
business. This powerful application
combines checkout support, electronic
marketing, data maintenance, account
management and other accounting
processes in a fast, versatile package.
IBM SurePOS ACE EPS offers standard
electronic tender support. EPS

supports prepaid gift and phone cards,
helping you to capture new revenue
streams. Additionally, EPS automatically
prompts customers who pay with check
cards to enter a PIN – helping to
improve debit-to-credit payment ratios,
which can ultimately increase
profitability through reduced transaction
fees. New features include integration
with Pay By Touch

and support of
Ingenico i6550, Ingenico i6770,
VeriFone Omni 7000, VeriFone Omni
7100 and Hypercom L4100 PIN pads.
IBM 4690 OS

Designed and developed exclusively

for retail, the IBM 4690 OS is widely
recognized for its high functionality and
outstanding reliability. It helps provide
a safe and highly functional foundation
for today’s most advanced software,
including e-business applications and
applications developed for the Java

2 specification. The IBM 4690 OS is
designed to deliver the same retail-
hardened performance as our rugged
POS systems. Task prioritization and
multiuser/multitasking capabilities
keep store operations moving swiftly.
Nonvolatile memory protects disk writes
at the server. In fact, multiple servers
can back each other up to help provide
uninterrupted checkout. All of which
help POS applications run with the high-
level availability you need to maintain
customer satisfaction.
IBM Data Integration Facility

The IBM Data Integration Facility
facilitates realtime data exchange with
your POS application as well as other
applications. This function unlocks
access to information, such as
transaction data, by providing transfer
and translation tools to support open
standards. Data that has been translated
into industry-standard formats can be
integrated easily with existing store
technology environments; formatting
data to comma-separated value (CSV)
format allows for easy viewing of data in
spreadsheets for further analysis.
IBM Store Integrator GUI

The IBM Store Integrator GUI offers

a user-friendly, customizable design

that supports dual displays. Retailers
can create a Java-based GUI for
touchscreen operation. IBM Store
Integrator GUI allows you to quickly and
easily implement a touch GUI, using
XML to configure and create screens
requiring no Java programming skills.
ICEsoft AS e-Lite Browser for 4690 OS
The ICEsoft AS e-Lite Browser for
4690 OS is a Java Class library that
allows you to develop customized Web
applications with a unique look and feel
for your store. The browser is used in
conjunction with the Store Integrator GUI
to support the operator touchscreen.

IBM SurePOS 700 Series

The IBM SurePOS 700 Series
delivers the speed and power to help
independent grocery retailers support

e-business, drive customer relationship
management (CRM), accelerate
training and captivate customers. IBM
SurePOS 740, model 742 features an
326 processor, 256MB
DDR 2 memory, shared video memory
configurable to 64MB and an optional
40GB hard disk drive.
IBM SureMark Printer

This fast, quiet, high-quality thermal
receipt printer helps retailers reduce
transaction times, customize receipts
with marketing messages and maximize
POS uptime. The model TI9 also
features high-accuracy optical

character recognition (OCR) and
magnetic ink character recognition
(MICR) reading, fast single pass

check handling and electronic check
imaging. This imaging enables you

to implement cost-effective electronic
check conversion (ECC) that is
designed to help minimize the risk of
administrative returns and losses from
non-sufficient funds (NSF) checks.
IBM SurePOS Controller

The retail-hardened IBM SurePOS
Controller is built on the same hardware
platform as the IBM SurePOS 740 POS
system. It includes an Intel Celeron
326 processor, 512MB DDR 2 memory,
40GB SATA hard disk drive, CD-ROM
drive, and two PCI slots. It comes
standard with a keyboard.
IBM SurePoint Solution

(included in Premium Package only)
The IBM SurePoint Solution (model
2WN) is a 12” display that features
state-of-the-art IR touch technology

to help provide more rapid, accurate
transactions. It incorporates a liquid
crystal display (LCD) in a compact
footprint, which helps save space.

Plus, IR technology offers a higher
contrast ratio, reduced glare and wider
viewing angle than conventional flat-
screen displays, which helps improve
screen visibility, even in brightly lit
environments. Because IR’s fixed

optical alignment lasts throughout the
life of the display, retailers may avoid
time-consuming recalibrations.

Engineered for supermarkets and chain
drug stores

ACE for 4690 OS is a
comprehensive point-of-sale (POS)
application designed to help
supermarket, hypermarket and chain
drug retailers maximize customer
service, improve reliability at the POS,
and take the first step toward the on
demand business model. This powerful
application combines checkout support,
electronic marketing, data maintenance,
account management and other
accounting processes in a fast, versatile
package. IBM SurePOS ACE performs
subsecond price lookups, handles
multiple tenders, and offers many
features designed to help maintain
technology currency and improve ease
of use. IBM SurePOS ACE also positions
retailers to take advantage of the IBM
Store Integration Framework, a key
component of on demand business.
Prepare for retail on demand
The IBM Store Integration Framework
is a unified integration environment
that helps provide critical infrastructure
to add software and hardware
seamlessly in the store, integrate
multiple points of service, and manage
store and customer data in realtime.
IBM SurePOS ACE supports multiple
components of the Framework, which
can be configured to help prepare
retailers to integrate an in-store
pharmacy, photo kiosks,
a wide range
of fuel pump transactions, or a personal
shopping assistant and helps provide
accurate price data, delivery of loyalty
benefits and streamlined transaction
processing. Specifically, IBM
SurePOS ACE is enabled to support
the IBM Store Integrator graphical
user interface (GUI) and the IBM
Data Integration Facility, which helps
promote realtime sales data analysis.
IBM SurePOS ACE for 4690 OS

Version 5

Dynamic capabilities for your store
Terminal offline operation
With the terminal offline feature, IBM
SurePOS ACE enables POS terminals

to conduct sales, perform price

lookups and log transactions even

if the store controller is unavailable.

This helps reduce the risk of lost

revenue due to server outages in your
stores. The terminal offline feature also
handles reconciliation of sales data.

It is also critical for single-controller
environments, where it supports a lower-
cost deployment of IBM SurePOS ACE,
enhances redundancy and helps reduce
the risk of downtime.
Maximum profitability
IBM SurePOS ACE Electronic Payment
Support (EPS)
offers all standard
electronic tender support. EPS supports
prepaid gift and phone cards, enabling
you to capture new revenue streams.
Plus, EPS automatically prompts
customers who pay with check cards to
enter a PIN. If the customer enters a PIN,
ACE processes the transaction as a

debit, which typically costs retailers
significantly less than a credit. This
feature helps improve debit-to-credit
payment ratios and can ultimately
increase your profitability.
Solid investment protection
IBM SurePOS ACE provides excellent
uptime because it is built on the IBM 4690
OS, one of the most reliable computing
platforms in retail. It also provides strong
backward and forward compatibility.

It uses the same host interface, data
format and operator interface as the

IBM Supermarket Application, so you

can make a smooth transition with
minimal operator training.
Diverse built-in functionality
IBM SurePOS ACE can support virtually
any POS activity. New features include
feature-rich fuel integration, support
for Pay By Touch

transactions and
complete check image capture. It also
offers interfaces to electronic journaling
and coupon management. The integrated
customer loyalty program rewards repeat
customers to help increase sales. Other
electronic marketing features support
complex promotions and preferred
shopper programs. The software also
supports gift receipts and detailed
reports for faster decision making.
Integrated management tools
Help increase manager productivity with
a terminal monitor for viewing cashier
actions on any active terminal, selective
item reporting that allows you to build
item lists quickly and create batches for
updating prices, and an electronic journal
that enables you to create summary
reports from stored transaction logs.
Advanced security features
IBM SurePOS ACE includes multiple
security features to help profits, such as
the ability to create encrypted operator
passwords that restrict access to specific
functions, and multitiered overrides that
set limits for superseding specific
operations. Data maintenance helps offer
secure control of files down to individual
fields. It also supports biometric
authorization for electronic purchases
through the Pay By Touch solution.
World-class service and support
The IBM service organization, including
the National Retail Services Center
(NRSC), can assist retailers with many
aspects of IBM SurePOS ACE, including
integration, development and support.
IBM authorized Business Partners can
also provide a wide range of professional
and support services for ACE.
Customer display (output only) enables

in-lane advertising with easily customizable
colors and fonts
Operator interface features a touchscreen

GUI that helps improve productivity and

reduce operator training time

Plus, Model TI9 offers advanced
electronic check processing.
 Thermal printing delivers
excellent speed and image quality
 Single-pass, double-sided

check imaging
 Impact printing for forms

and documents
 Logo and barcode storage helps

 Highly serviceable, global-

ready platform
Single-pass, double-sided check imaging
The document insert station on the
Model TI9 supports electronic check
acceptance (ECA) as well as electronic
check truncation (ECT/Check 21). It
captures a complete electronic image
of the front and back of checks in a
single pass, so you can use the check
image for either ECA or ECT/Check
21 applications. The entire process
happens rapidly, helping to minimize
transaction time. The impact station
also prints “VOID” on the face of

the check.
Additional check processing features
Model TI9 includes an image quality
filter that helps each check image
provide adequate readability for
seamless third-party processing and
fewer administrative returns. The printer
also uses compression techniques
to reduce the file size of each check
image, allowing retailers to process

high volumes of checks without
clogging the network.

Simple, snap-together design
A snap-together design makes IBM
SureMark Printers extremely easy to
service. Paper handling is fast and
easy, so operators can change paper
rolls quickly. Electronic journaling helps
eliminate the costs and challenges
of maintaining a second print station
and simplifies the search for electronic
records. With dual-station models for
SBCS or DBCS output, IBM SureMark
Printers also allow international,
multinational and global retailers to use
a single printer platform for every store
worldwide. This can help improve service
and support efficiency.
Flash memory for customized receipts
IBM SureMark Printers use flash memory
to generate logos, barcodes, graphics
and text messages automatically. This
allows retailers to customize receipts
without affecting wait time at the POS, and
transforms your printer into a powerful
marketing tool. Add your logo to receipts,
use barcodes to expedite returns, or print
special offers to reward loyal customers.
IBM SureMark Printers also feature clean
receipt capabilities, so you can organize
receipts by item and category and make
it easier for customers to scan the receipt
for specific items.
Emulations for easy migration
IBM SureMark Printers offer emulation of
the receipt and document insert stations
for IBM Model 3 and Model 4 printers.

This allows retailers to replace existing
printers with IBM SureMark Printers,
upgrading print speed, print quality
and overall ease of use – while reducing
the time and cost of reconfiguring POS
software. Additionally, if you plan to use
Model TI9 to support ECT/Check 21,
but must wait to install new hardware or
software to support this capability, Model
TI9 can emulate model TI4 features to act
as an interim solution.

Engaging retail consumers with

leading-edge POS display technology
Today’s retailers require a powerful
POS solution that can help enhance
customer service, yet is easy for
operators to learn and use. Transactions
must be rapid and accurate, taking
the customer through a pleasant,
interactive shopping experience.
The IBM SurePoint 2WN flat-panel,
full-color POS display features
innovative IR touch technology for

rapid, accurate transactions.
The 2WN model includes a flat-panel
liquid crystal display (LCD) that can be
used for effective multimedia operator
training, full-motion video advertising
and interactive customer displays. It
comes in a compact footprint, enabling
retailers to make the most of valuable
counter space.
Providing exceptional video quality, IBM
SurePoint displays let you take advantage
of the increasing selection of full-featured,
touch-based POS applications. Interactive
training and multilingual solutions are

readily implemented.
Next-generation IBM SurePoint Solutions
feature cost-effective IR touchscreen
technology that enables personnel to use
a broad range of interaction tools – from a
finger to a credit card – while maintaining
high levels of transaction accuracy
and speed. A higher contrast ratio and
reduced glare offer improved screen
visibility, even when positioned in brightly
lit environments. And because IR’s fixed
optical alignment lasts throughout the

life of the display, you can avoid time-
consuming recalibrations.
Providing POS functionality wrapped

in an integrated, durable package
The IBM SurePoint Solution is both modular
and scalable, letting you integrate additional
peripherals – such as magnetic stripe
readers (MSRs), keypads, pointing devices
and key locks – into an aesthetic, timeless
design. Because it features open standards-
based Universal Serial Bus (USB) or serial
connectivity, you can attach your IBM
SurePoint display to most POS terminals or
PCs, thereby leveraging the equipment you
already have on hand. To further safeguard
your technology investment, IBM conducts
rigorous environmental tests – such as spill
resistance and electrostatic discharge – to
help extend the life of your IBM SurePoint
Solution, even under harsh retail conditions.
