Datascan Announces a Fulltime Presence in the UK

Twenty Year Retail Industry Veteran Who Has Worked Exclusively to Assist Retailers With Software and Hardware Solutions Joins Datascan to Lead the Company's UK Business Development Team

CARROLLTON, TX--(Marketwired - June 12, 2013) - Datascan, the leader in Self-Scanning Inventory (stock count) Solutions, today announced the appointment of Frazer Watson as Datascan's Head of Business Development UK effective May 13, 2013. Mr. Watson brings more than 20 years of relevant industry experience to his new role having previously helped establish a UK presence as Head of Retail Sales for Retail Directions. The Datascan office based in Derby, East Midlands will serve as a hub for retailers in the UK and Europe.

Datascan has been working with major retail clients in the UK and throughout Europe since 2004 and is thrilled to officially launch a permanent UK office that will focus on developing new business partnerships with retailers throughout Europe. In preparation for this launch, and in partnership with larger EU retailers, Datascan has increased the capacity of its existing London based datacenter, and streamlined the distribution of its dedicated scanner fleet from the Netherlands.

Datascan offers retailers a full range of Self-Scan inventory solutions through a simple, comprehensive on-demand rental model, Solution-as-a-Service. Many of Datascan's US-based clients have implemented Datascan throughout the world and have experienced increased stock count accuracy and decreased cost through the seamless transition to Self-Scanning. In 2012 Datascan's solution was used to conduct stock counts in more than 3,000 shops throughout Europe. 

"We believe that UK retailers are well placed to take advantage of state of the art Self Scanning solutions, reap the benefits of the increased accuracy, greater control and reduced cost they bring, all while meeting the requirements of a statutory audit stock count. The UK is underserved with solution providers offering this type of solution, and by appointing Frazer Watson in his role, we are excited about the prospects to work with key names in the UK retail industry," said Adrian Thomas, President of Datascan. 

"Frazer's understanding of a retailer's need for system integration and their desire to work with business partners that bring value to their shops but help reduce operating costs will greatly benefit Datascan. Our solution is based on fully understanding our retailer client needs and developing long-term relationships that provide systems that evolve and grow with them each year as their business changes. This results in a continuous improvement in a retailer's stock count efficiency. Frazer has accomplished this throughout his career and has proven success with complex software implementations when working with Epos and solutions providers such as CBE and Barron McCann," said Jennifer Cusano, Vice President of Business Development.
