As of May 28, 2014, a change was made to the requirement for a Retail Supply Dealer(RSD) license. Convenience stores (as defined in Sec 28-401) that previously held an RSD license ONLY will no longer be required to obtain an RSD license. The definition of a convenience store as defined in Sec. 28-401 is any business that is primarily engaged in the retail sale of convenience goods, or both convenience goods and gasoline, and has less than 10,000 square feet of retail floor space. Convenience store does not include any business where there is no retail floor space accessible to the public.

    Bennett Auto Supply – Retail – Industries – IGEL Technology – EN #murrays #auto

    #bennett auto supply

    “With IGEL, I know I’m making a sound investment for my company that will last.”

    Founded in 1946, Bennett Auto Supply is one of the oldest auto parts suppliers in Florida. The family-owned business has a distribution center in Pompano Beach and 25 stores across the state, concentrated on the east coast. At each store location, the company offers a large inventory of products for both retail and wholesale customers, as well as a knowledgeable and professional staff. With over 430 employees and annual sales in excess of $55 Million, Bennett Auto Supply is one of Florida’s foremost suppliers of auto parts.

    Business Solutions from IGEL Technology

    “Four years ago, we knew that it was time to phase dumb terminals out of our IT infrastructure,” said John Thompson, director of information technology for Bennett Auto Supply. “Manufacturers were no longer offering new, updated dumb terminal technology, and we recognized that switching to thin clients would be a cost-effective way to upgrade our IT capabilities.”

    In 2004, Bennett Auto Supply changed its entire IT infrastructure by replacing the dumb terminals in all of its stores with Neoware thin clients, purchasing a total of 230 machines. With the new thin clients, Bennett Auto Supply’s employees would have access to multiple applications on every terminal, enabling them to better serve customers.

    However, the shift to the new thin clients created several unanticipated problems. The company relied on NoMachine’s NX software, which Neoware didn’t officially support. At the time of purchase, the vendor customized the software to the machines, but they were unwilling to address problems that came up later. Employees began to have frequent problems with terminal session issues, in which they were unexpectedly forced to log off the network. While the thin clients continued to be functional, the shutdowns were inconvenient, interrupting the company’s delivery of high quality customer service. Thompson recognized that the hardware wasn’t working as he planned, but the 230 thin clients he had were still relatively new and it didn’t make sense to replace them.

    “We needed a solution that would salvage our existing machines, but we didn’t want to add more Neoware thin clients as we expanded our business,” Thompson explained. “We were opening a new store in Fort Myers, and the time was right to introduce a new thin client model that would better fit our needs moving forward.”

    The Solution: IGEL 3210 LX thin clients

    Thompson consulted Ray Heffron at Computer Products Corporation as he sought a solution. Founded in 1962, Computer Products Corporation (CPC) is one of the nation’s first computer sellers to offer solutions, service and support for their customers. As an IBM business partner, CPC works to incorporate IBM products into solutions for clients. Recognizing that the problem was at its root an NX-compatibility issue, Heffron recommended that Bennett Auto Supply purchase IGEL thin clients for its new store.

    “The key component that IGEL had to offer that the Neoware machines lacked was compatibility with the NX software, which Bennett Auto Supply needed,” Heffron explained.

    “IGEL’s thin clients are the only ones on the market that are embedded with NX-compatible software, and so the choice of IGEL was simple.”

    Support for NoMachine’s NX software is one of the wide range of digital services that IGEL thin clients are capable of. In addition, IGEL thin clients are able to provide RDP, web, terminal emulation, Java and VoIP services. The company’s machines can also be connected to almost any served-based infrastructure, including Citrix-hosted applications, virtual PCs and server-based Linux applications.

    After testing out a demo IGEL thin client, Thompson decided to purchase eleven 3210LX models for the company’s new Fort Myers location. Also at Heffron’s recommendation, Thompson purchased a new IBM server with an Ubuntu operating system that would better support NX software, and he upgraded the NX software the company was using from the free version to the enterprise-level software, which offered greater flexibility.

    Superior Software Capabilities

    “From the beginning, the difference between our new IGEL machines and the slightly older Neoware models was remarkable,” Thompson noted. “We didn’t encounter any of the software problems we were facing with our Neoware models, such as terminal session issues. The next question was how we were going to address the software issues we were having with our older thin clients.“

    For the existing Neoware machines, Heffron had a cost-effective and innovative idea for how to improve their functionality: the company could replace the flash drives inside the Neoware thin clients with the same NX-compatible flash drives that IGEL used. The new memory cards would transform what was externally a Neoware thin client into a machine that functioned like an IGEL thin client. The transformation cost about $120 per terminal, including both the hardware and the cost of labor – an amount that was several hundred dollars less than buying replacement thin clients. Using this method, Bennett Auto Supply was able to update all but 30 of its 230 Neoware machines; the 30 that could not be updated were older models for which the appropriate flash chips were not available. By salvaging most of its initial batch of thin clients, Bennett realized significant cost savings.

    Remote Manageability

    Today Thompson is able to manage the IGEL thin clients in the Fort Myers store from his office on Florida’s east coast, using IGEL’s remote management software. Every IGEL thin client comes bundled with the powerful IGEL Remote Management Suite (RMS), which enables IT administrators to offer support from distant sites.

    “The Remote Management Suite was another important differentiator when we chose IGEL thin clients,” Thompson said. “Our Neoware thin clients didn’t come embedded with any such software, and we haven’t attempted to manage them remotely. From a management perspective, IGEL’s RMS is a huge time-saver, and it allows me to work more efficiently.”


    With IGEL thin clients, Bennett Auto Supply was able to put in place an IT infrastructure for its new west coast store that it hopes will ultimately become the model for the rest of its stores. Using IGEL’s NX-compatible software, Bennett Auto’s new thin clients operate at optimal levels, with no terminal session issues. Over time, the company plans to phase out its Neoware thin clients, replacing them with IGEL models that can easily be managed remotely, helping the IT team to be more efficient.

    “We’ve learned that not all thin clients are the same – our experience with IGEL thin clients has been vastly better than our experience with Neoware’s,” Thompson summarized. “With IGEL, I know I’m making a sound investment for my company that will last.”

    Different Types of Pricing Strategy #retail #pricing #strategy


    Different Types of Pricing Strategy

    by Leigh Richards

    Pricing strategies have a major impact on the marketing effectiveness for companies, large and small.

    carrots with price image by Jo Ann Koch from

    Related Articles

    Pricing is one of the four elements of the marketing mix, along with product, place and promotion. Pricing strategy is important for companies who wish to achieve success by finding the price point where they can maximize sales and profits. Companies may use a variety of pricing strategies, depending on their own unique marketing goals and objectives.

    Premium Pricing

    Premium pricing strategy establishes a price higher than the competitors. It s a strategy that can be effectively used when there is something unique about the product or when the product is first to market and the business has a distinct competitive advantage. Premium pricing can be a good strategy for companies entering the market with a new market and hoping to maximize revenue during the early stages of the product life cycle.

    Penetration Pricing

    A penetration pricing strategy is designed to capture market share by entering the market with a low price relative to the competition to attract buyers. The idea is that the business will be able to raise awareness and get people to try the product. Even though penetration pricing may initially create a loss for the company, the hope is that it will help to generate word-of-mouth and create awareness amid a crowded market category.

    Economy Pricing

    Economy pricing is a familiar pricing strategy for organizations that include Wal-Mart, whose brand is based on this strategy. Aldi, a food store, is another example of economy pricing strategy. Companies take a very basic, low-cost approach to marketing–nothing fancy, just the bare minimum to keep prices low and attract a specific segment of the market that is very price sensitive.

    Price Skimming

    Businesses that have a significant competitive advantage can enter the market with a price skimming strategy designed to gain maximum revenue advantage before other competitors begin offering similar products or product alternatives.

    Psychological Pricing

    Psychological pricing strategy is commonly used by marketers in the prices they establish for their products. For instance, $99 is psychologically less in the minds of consumers than $100. It s a minor distinction that can make a big difference.

    Besides the obvious stuff, like we sell supplies for homebrewing beer and wine. ask yourself these questions: Does your hardware store stock nearly 400 different drill bits? (386 to be exact). Does your hardware store stock welding supplies? Oil burner parts? Snow sleds and snowboards? Does your hardware store stock thirty-six sizes of hole saws? Does your hardware store care enough about you to stock 43 different padlocks? Or metric screws in fine thread? How about over 100 different types of sandpaper?

    Just some examples of what we stock for our customers:
