Overview
Bottom rule

Retailers are looking to transform their image through technology that can integrate across all customer touch points and back-office systems; can deliver a seamless shopping experience with improved usability; and can provide a new modern design with tools that help improve operations. As retailers continue to differentiate themselves, they realize that improving the look and feel of their customer-facing solutions translates into perceived value, ultimately driving customer loyalty.

IBM Store Integrator V3.3 provides enhancements to the Store Integrator GUI. Retailers use the SI GUI to offer differentiating services and touch points in the stores; and with the new GUI enhancements, they can use touch capability to improve usability, reduce training costs, and develop new screen layouts and designs to support the dynamic retail environment.

Enhancements to the SI GUI include :

  • Scrolling touch-enabled receipt for changing price, quantity, and voiding of items
  • Operator and customer GUI improvements, featuring "Silver Theme," which is a collection of colors, fonts, and images that improves the aesthetics of the user interface (UI)
  • New HTML renderer that can be used to replace the ICESoft Browser for advertising, help, and screen savers
  • Improved extendibility with the "link" item allowing for the addition or removal of container elements for easier editing and screen design updating

Description
Bottom rule

IBM Store Integrator V3.3 provides enhancements to the Store Integrator GUI (SI GUI). Retailers use the SI GUI to offer differentiating services and touch points in the stores. With new SI V3.3 GUI enhancements, touch can be utilized to improve usability, reduce training costs, and develop new screen layouts and designs to support the dynamic retail environment while minimizing operational costs.

The SI GUI enhancements in V3.3 include:

  • Scrolling touch-enabled receipt

    A touch-enabled receipt on the GUI that allows a sales associate to touch a sold item on the receipt, change the price or quantity, or void the item .

  • Operator and customer GUI improvements "Silver Theme"

    A new modernized theme for the operator and customer GUIs that incorporates new icons, colors, button shapes, and images. A new layout was created for the customer GUI that has improved receipt area, total area, and scale display.

  • Ability to design new screen themes

    Retailers can now easily create custom themes to be deployed to meet their branding needs.

  • HTML renderer ICESoft browser replacement

    Java™ HTML renderer that replaces the prerequisite requirement of using the ICESoft browser for Advertising, Help, and Screen Savers. If full browser support is need at the POS, then the ICESoft browser is still required.

  • Extended capability of the "link" item

    It allows for adding and removing container elements that are used in SI GUI to make it easier to edit and update screen designs. Some examples include adding and removing notebooks and frames to screens, pages to notebooks, palettes to pages, buttons and image buttons to palettes, buttons, image buttons, labels, and notebooks to frames.

Product positioning
Bottom rule

IBM SI V3.3 is a strategic component and enabler of the IBM Retail Integration Framework (RIF) and Retail Store Solutions (RSS) portfolio. SI is primarily targeted at large and medium retailers in the grocery, mass merchant, department store, and the convenience segments. These retailers use the IBM 4690 OS, along with either IBM SurePOS™ ACE EPS, SA, GSA, or an ISV's application that provides complimentary function for the POS applications. Retailers are extending their points of service beyond the traditional checkout register and want to leverage their existing investment in the register POS application. They want one application to maintain, one set of data to maintain, and one reliable way to integrate to POS.

SI provides retailers with improvements in how POS information may be used throughout the retailer's enterprise.

Specified operating environment

Hardware requirements

Refer to Store Integrator V3.3 User's Guide (G362-0561), which also describes the hardware requirements.

The hardware required for a solution using SI V3.3 virtual sessions depends upon:

  • Capacity required by the client solution
  • Capacity needed for any other processes running on the controller (services, other applications, DIF (Data Integration Facility), and so on)
  • Decision to use virtual session failover

A solution requiring a fully-enabled failover must have an equivalent capacity reserved on a backup controller.

There are multiple solution scenario types for SI, but the primary solution types are self checkout, fuel, and portable shopper. These solution types have varying transaction rates and thus, varying capacity requirements.

Typical transaction rates for the categories are:

  • Self checkout: 15 items per transaction and 14 transactions per hour per lane.
  • Fuel: One item per transaction and 12 transactions per hour per session
  • Portable Shopper: 30 items per transaction and four transactions per hour per session

The recommended failover-enabled solution for a typical environment (with no additional load from other processes), consists of two controllers, each with a 2.0 GHz processor and 768 MB of memory. Operating as one alternate and one subordinate, these controllers support one of the following loads:

  • Self checkout: 14 lanes
  • Fuel: 25 fuel pumps
  • Portable Shopper: 25 units

The current POS applications (SA, GSA, and ACE) have the capability of using the SI interface to enable a Java GUI terminal screen for the POS application. This function has the capability to support one GUI at the terminal or dual GUIs (dual displays) at the terminal.

SI V3.3 continues to support older terminals for the POS GUI. This minimum terminal hardware includes a 500 MHz processor for single display and a 850 MHz processor for dual displays. These provide acceptable performance for the nonmodified base applications.

The recommended terminals for best performance of the SI GUI are 4800-741 terminals and any higher-end models. These terminals provide faster response and are better able to contain added value function to the GUI solution.

4 If you are using SI GUI V3.3 with the new Silver Theme Lite, the minimum RAM requirement for a 4690 Classic Terminal is 256 MB. If you are using Silver Theme, the minimum RAM requirement for a 4690 Classic Terminal will increase to 512 MB to accommodate the memory required by the higher resolution Silver Theme.

Silver Theme Lite uses the same GUI images with fewer colors and shades, less shadowing, and gradient of colors. The same vibrant icons are used for both the Silver Theme and Silver Theme Lite designs.

Client Device (Terminal)

Client Device is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. A Client Device is a single-user computing device or special-purpose sensor or telemetry device that requests the execution of or receives for execution a set of commands, procedures, or applications from or provides data to another computer system that is typically referred to as a server or is otherwise managed by the server. Multiple Client Devices may share access to a common server. A Client Device may have some processing capability or be programmable to allow a user to do work. Examples include, but are not limited to, actuators, appliances, automated teller machines, automatic meter readers, cash registers, disk drives, desktop computers, kiosks, notebook computers, personal digital assistants, point-of-sale terminals, sensors, smart meters, tape drives, and technical workstations. Licensee must obtain entitlements for every Client Device that runs, provides data to, uses services provided by, or otherwise accesses the program and for every other computer or server on which the program is installed.

The Product Identification (PID) number for the new initial base license of IBM SI V3.3 is 5639-P71. The following is a description of each of the new feature codes:

  • Feature 0001 - SI V3.3 Per Terminal/Virtual Session with 1 Year SW Maintenance:

    This feature must be selected to order a base license for each terminal or virtual session that SI V3.3 will be loaded into and running on in each store. SI V3.3 includes all the components of SI. The quantity of the feature code ordered, must be equal to the number of terminal or virtual sessions in the store.

  • Feature 0002 - Trade up from SI GUI to SI:

    This feature must be selected if you want to upgrade each SI GUI terminal license to the full SI license which includes all the components of SI. The quantity of the feature code ordered, must be equal to the number of SI GUI licenses that need to be upgraded.

  • Feature 0004 - SI GUI for 4690 Terminal:

    This feature must be selected for each terminal that the SI GUI will be loaded into and running on in each store. The quantity of the feature code ordered must be equal to the number of terminals in the store running the SI GUI.

Below represents how to order an initial base license for SI V3.3. The econfig tool is available to help you create an SI V3.3 order. If for some reason econfig is not available, you can place an basic order as follows:

Software Maintenance for SI and SI GUI

There are two options for Software Maintenance (SWMA) for SI. You can choose either a 1-year or a 3-year option.

You must order Software Maintenance Registration with the initial order. It entitles the user or customer to receive new versions or releases, as well as support, during the initial 12-month period. It also registers them in the entitlement database, allowing them to open and report problems. If you do not include the Software Maintenance Registration PID with the initial order, it will not update the entitlement system to allow the user or customer to get support.

Also, you must ensure that the number of base SI and SI GUI licenses ordered matches the number of SI and SI GUI software maintenance licenses. There should be a one-for-one match.

You do not need to order the SWMA Renewal the first year since it is already included in the base license price of the package. This needs to be ordered once the registration period is up (after the first 12 months). It starts with year number two through the life of the installation.

Ensure you always order the latest announced Software Maintenance PID for SI and SI GUI. The SI and SI GUI Software Maintenance PID number will always be the same PID number for the life of SI and SI GUI.

The following are the Software Maintenance Product Identification (PID) numbers for SI V3.3:

  • 5639-P72 IBM Store Integrator One Year Software Maintenance Registration/Renewal
  • 5639-P73 IBM Store Integrator One Year Software Maintenance After License
  • 5639-P74 IBM Store Integrator Three Year Software Maintenance Registration
  • 5639-P75 IBM Store Integrator Three Year Software Maintenance Renewal
  • 5639-P76 IBM Store Integrator Three Year Software Maintenance After License

The following is a description of each of the feature codes for SI One Year Software Maintenance Registration/Renewal (5639-P72):

  • Feature SI Per Terminal/Virtual Session SWM No Charge Registration:

    This feature must be selected when initially ordering the SI base license code. It is a no-charge feature that registers the user or customer so they are entitled to their 12 months of software maintenance on the SI base code. The total number of the quantity of the SI terminal or virtual session software maintenance feature codes ordered must be equal to the total number of the quantity of the SI Terminal/Virtual Session base license feature codes ordered. It should be a one-for-one match.

  • Feature SI Per Terminal/Virtual Session SWM One Year Renewal:

    This feature must be selected for each SI terminal or virtual session that needs to be renewed before their 12-month no-charge software maintenance for the SI base code is up for renewal. The quantity of the SI terminal or virtual session renewal feature codes ordered must be equal to the number of SI terminal or virtual session base license feature codes ordered. It should be a one-for-one match.
