The integrated system went live at more than 230 Love's locations in 2009, including the rapid installation of 60 stores in 20 business days.

"Over the past few years, we saw a growing need for more integration and control over our technology systems. So we searched for a solution that would provide the features and benefits we [image-nocss] needed to improve efficiency and grow our company," said Jim Xenos, chief information officer for Oklahoma City-based Love's. "Retalix offered the most comprehensive solution to meet our broad and diverse requirements. Specifically, the ability to enhance our control over commercial fuel functions and the capability to process multiple payment methods on a single system are some of the most important features."
