  SUNNYVALE, CA, Nov 08 (Marketwire) -- 
Fujitsu, building on its longstanding partnership with SAP AG (NYSE:
SAP), today announced an agreement with SAP to enhance collaboration in
the retail sector. 

    Fujitsu, in cooperation with SAP, plans to build a new packaged
integration component, integrating Fujitsu's next-generation retail Point
of Service ("PoS") application with the SAP(R) for Retail portfolio of
solutions. The integration components will reside in and extend the
existing products of both SAP and Fujitsu. These extended capabilities
will deliver significant multichannel benefits in terms of customer
service, front-office business process improvements and point-of-sale
improvements to retailers.

    "We are delighted to sign this agreement with SAP to build an integrated
PoS and ERP component for modern multichannel retailers," said Richard
Clarke, vice president, Global Retail Strategy, Fujitsu. "Retailers --
both current and future SAP Retail customers -- have long been asking for
this 'out of the box' integration to simplify implementation and deliver
a superior customer experience at the point of purchase."

    As an SAP global technology, services and hosting partner and an
SAP-certified provider of cloud services, Fujitsu provides companies with
cohesive support at the level of applications and IT infrastructure,
implementation and operation of SAP solutions, strategic consulting and
ongoing improvement of business processes.

    Fujitsu's current retail PoS solution, GlobalSTORE(R) software, is
Fujitsu's full-featured, customizable PoS, cash management and
back-office system, delivering a seamless customer experience across
applications, devices and channels. Fujitsu's GlobalSTORE software has
been ranked in the Leaders category of "The Forrester Wave(TM): Point of
Service, Q2 2012," recently published by Forrester Research, Inc.
GlobalSTORE software performed particularly well on transaction
processing, implementation and deployment flexibility and a visionary
strategic roadmap to Fujitsu's next-generation retail PoS solution.

    The SAP for Retail solution portfolio helps retailers transform their
businesses with unified and simplified processes to plan, market, target,
sell, supply and operate better.

    Teams from Fujitsu and SAP are now working together in multiple regions
to deliver the integrated solution to the global retail market place.

    "Providing our retail customers with the solutions that support their
ability to run their retail operations better in these changing retail
times is a priority for SAP," said Lori Mitchell-Keller, senior vice
president and head of Global Retail Industry Business Unit, SAP. "The
integration of point of service capabilities with SAP Retail solutions is
an important component in providing a complete, multichannel offering for
our retail customers. It allows them to provide a retail experience that
keeps their shoppers coming back. Working with partners such as Fujitsu
is essential to SAP achieving this goal."
