CDW Pushes Further into Retail

CDW Pushes Further into Retail

CDW Corporation (Vernon Hills, IL) has expanded its retail portfolio to include merchant services from Chase Paymentech (Dallas) as well as new integrated product offerings in POS, Auto ID, and digital signage. This includes CDW’s “Store-in-a-Truck” concept, which takes a complete blueprint of the retailer’s IT, including servers, power, networking, telephony, merchant services, and POS lanes, and replicates it at new stores and in store refreshes, thereby enabling retailers to simplify IT implementation. CDW has also grown its team of retail technology specialists to help businesses develop custom-configured solutions and specialized services for optimal technology performance.

“The current economic environment is challenging for consumers and retailers alike, so more than ever, retailers need to make sound investments in affordable technology solutions that allow them to improve their competitive position and pass savings on to their customers,” stated Marc Barnett, Senior Manager of Solutions at CDW. “We have expanded our offerings to include end-to-end, industry-specific solutions and services to help retailers reduce costs, protect their business, streamline their operations, and ultimately enhance the customer experience.”

“Through this partnership, the establishment of a payment processing solution is less confusing, more convenient, and less expensive for CDW customers—large or small,” observed Greg Schaub, EVP, Business Development at Chase Paymentech Solutions. “This complements CDW’s well-earned reputation for helping small businesses. We look forward to the opportunity to deliver our knowledge and expertise in payment processing to CDW’s retail customers.” That will include more competitive discount rates, simplified fee structures, and improved transaction reporting.

"We like to think we differentiate ourselves at a higher level in these types of economic climates, based on how we solve business problems for customers," Barnett shared with RRN.Com in discussing the timing of CDW's announcement, adding, "Customers are still purchasing retail products and services every single day."
