Tesco stores will be rebranded as Tesco Express, with all sale software and supply chain technology converting to the supermarket giant's information technology platform. By standardising on its Windows-based platform, Tesco hopes to make stock delivery more efficient and save money. The stores are expected to switch to Microsoft .Net client-server architecture, which Tesco rolled out in 2002 to speed up deployment of applications across the Internet to its 1,900-plus stores and offices.
