The article presents information on 7-Eleven Inc.'s plans to go mobile and the secrets of its success. The convenience store industry is finally gaining ground when it comes to technology adoption, and many chains continue to catch up to other industries in the sophistication of their systems. 7-Eleven began to introduce new technology into its stores in the mid-1990s, starting with scanning, back-office systems and daily ordering from the stores. Today, 7-Eleven continues to test and roll out innovative technology to meet the needs of the business, employees and customers, whether that means implementing applications from various vendors or creating a proprietary program to meet the company's needs.
