This article presents information on methods used by Irving Oil Corp., in its Canada and U.S. stores to improve customer service. When Irving Oil Corp. wanted to upgrade its operations, it started by choosing Retalix's POS system to implement scanning. But Irving, a division of Irving Oil Limited in Canada with a U.S. headquarters in Portsmith, New Hampshire, didn't stop there. The PDI system provides the company with accounts payable, accounts receivable, franchise, general ledger and payroll applications, and has allowed store managers to spend less time in the back office.
