Austin, Texas -- Acumera announced today that Meridian, Idaho-based Jacksons Food Stores, Inc. has selected Acumera to build, monitor and manage a secure network, interconnecting the convenience store chain’s more than 200 retail locations with more than 1,900 store systems.
Using the Acumera Merchant Gateway, AcuVigil Dashboard and Machine-to-Cloud Integration Engine, Jacksons will experience enhanced information security, connectivity and visibility across the company’s enterprise.
Consistent attention to connectivity, security and visibility of all aspects of retail technology, as well as strong carrier relationships are items, which led Jacksons to the selection of Acumera, according to Patrick Abernathy, Jacksons’ director of information technology.
“From visibility of individual devices and alerts on potential issues before they have an operational impact, to discreet network segmentation at the switch level and management of broadband carriers, Acumera is now our one source company for our network integration and management,” Abernathy said. “Acumera provides sophisticated network services, which enable us to provide better remote support for our stores and freeing up staff time to focus on other systems and projects. We believe that enlisting Acumera not only satisfies our functional requirements, but also enhances our ability to conduct better support for our locations.”
