To respond to the specific business needs of Jumbo, RBC team implemented a complete POS solution and tax advisory services regarding the compatibility of the Greek sales application with the Romanian tax law. With extensive experience in approving applications, RBC specialists have modified the client application, tested and validated the application with the Ministry of Finance.

Details about RBC solution
All Jumbo stores are equipped with Wincor-Nixorf equipment. The successful collaboration with Wincor as well as the high quality RBC services were key factors in choosing RBC as a trusted partner in this project. Jumbo owns a sales application in Greece, which was certified in Romania with the Wincor-Nixdorf printer. Although the time allocated to the approval of the application was ambitious, thanks to the efforts of both parties and the professionalism of RBC consultants, the opening of the first store in Bucharest was achieved earlier than the initial date. The shop has an area of 14,500 sqm and it is developed on two levels.
"We were delighted with the quality of RBC services, the professionalism and promptness of their consultants, good communication and analysis skills, as well as the and eagerness in supporting us in our activities," said Ana Maria Kotsis, Jumbo Manager.

RBC consultants demonstrated professionalism in addressing our needs, and the POS solution implemented is the solution we needed - hardware performance, very intuitive and reliable, "said Ana Maria Kotsis, Jumbo Manager.
