Seven-Eleven Japan's IT system to keep stores well stocked

Seven-Eleven Japan will upgrade an information system connecting its 19,000 retail outlets with company headquarters.

TOKYO -- Seven-Eleven Japan will upgrade an information system connecting its 19,000 retail outlets with company headquarters to better monitor inventory levels and ensure stores do not run out of top-selling products.

The unit of Seven & i Holdings will spend a record 52 billion yen ($517.6 million) on a system that swiftly reminds stores of imminent product shortages. The replacement of related equipment, including order-placement terminals and computers, will be completed by this fall, with the new system scheduled to be operational in phases from fiscal 2017.
