Jardin Majorelle, Marrakech, Morocco was only one of six selected customers to run our special?uniCenta oPOS v4.0 release, and went live April 2015
They upgraded to pre-release uniCenta oPOS v4.1 in the following October.
Jardin Majorelle comprises a two and a half acre garden hosting a collection of cacti, exotic plants and trees.
It also features Morocco?s Berber Museum and was the home of the world renowned fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent.
Open 365 days a year it is one of the most visited sites in Morocco welcoming more than 800,000 visitors per year.
Jardin Majorelle chose to implement uniCenta oPOS to replace an existing Point Of Sale system in their Boutique Majorelle and Museum bookshop as part of a phased approach to extending their commercial offline and online strategy.
Boutique Majorelle has over 1000 product lines. with images, ranging from clothing to household artefacts. Quick, accurate product lookup with on-screen product identification at the sales desk was an essential requirement which meant great care and time was taken cataloguing all products prior to their inclusion. Also required was auto-creation and printing of Jardin Majorelle?s own GS1 assigned EAN barcodes along with scheduled auto-reports all from within uniCenta oPOS.
The Museum bookshop offers a less extensive product range than Boutique Majorelle, but the daily volume of sales transactions is much higher so speed from scan to cash-off in readiness for the next customer was an essential requirement.
Both Boutique Majorelle and the Museum bookshop share a central remote database located some way away across the complex.
Back Office functions such as accounts, product management and reporting are accessed by various departments using Apple Mac?s.
In addition; bespoke development to automatically push End-of-Day reports at a pre-scheduled time for the Foundation?s Head Office in Paris was put in place.
They are also the first user of Web Reporting hosted on their own internal server.
