Keene, N.H. – C&S Wholesale Grocers, Inc. announced that it has entered into an exclusive strategic partnership with DUMAC Business Systems, Inc. to distribute DUMAC’s industry-leading point of sale (POS) software solution portfolio, RORCv6, to 1,000 C&S independent grocery retail customers across the United States. 

RORCv6 is a robust POS solution with customized, feature-rich capabilities and integrations.

Enhancing the customer experience through state-of-the-art technology is central to the C&S Retail Services mission and the POS is the supermarket’s technology core. Having a uniform POS enables continued integration of digital marketing, including eCommerce and personalized loyalty marketing, and helps ensure an exceptional customer experience for both C&S customers and their shoppers.

“Technology and competition have pushed the grocery industry into an incredible period of change,” said Corey Quiring, Vice President of Retail Services at C&S Wholesale Grocers. “At C&S, we’re committed to bringing innovative technology solutions that will help our independent grocery customers stay connected to their shoppers. With this new technology, we enable our independent retailers to maintain their competitiveness against larger retailers and online channels.”
