Pinnacle EPM™ BI Platform expands support for additional POS systems

ARLINGTON, Texas, May 2, 2012 – The Pinnacle Corporation (Pinnacle) announced today the completion and availability of an interface between its EPM™ business intelligence platform and Gilbarco’s Passport POS.

In use by a majority of Pinnacle Palm POS™ clients as early as 2005, Pinnacle’s EPM (Enterprise Performance Management) business intelligence platform has been providing retailers with a real-time, browser-based, centralized database, enterprise level reporting solution for merchandise, operations, and loss prevention reporting.  EPM offers an array of reporting options and delivery mechanisms to satisfy all user types, whether store managers or executive leadership. Pinnacle completed the development of an interface between EPM and Gilbarco’s Passport POS via the PCATS NAXML standards, expanding the scope of retailers that can now take advantage of Pinnacle’s powerful BI solution.

“We are pleased with this completed work, as it significantly expands the group of potential marketers that can take advantage of EPM,” says Jane Sinn Gabriel, retail solutions manager at The Pinnacle Corporation. “Newer EPM clients are amazed with the flexibility of reporting options EPM provides, and clients that have been on the platform for some time continue to reap new benefits as they harvest its undiscovered horsepower.”

Pinnacle also recently completed the EPM interface to VeriFone’s Sapphire POS earlier this year, which is now in production; Pinnacle will continue to add support for additional POS platforms.
