Boerewors and Beans for Braai Day
Issued by Caro Communications - Sep 18th, 15:32
On 24 September, we celebrate National Heritage Day in South Africa. It is a day where we can get together and celebrate our rich heritage by uniting around fires and enjoying some delicious food. For this reason, it was declared a public holiday. With the 24th falling on a Sunday this year and the public holiday being moved to the Monday, what better way is there to enjoy the long weekend than with beans and boerewors and a braai with friends and family? As South Africans, we all know that fires and good food mean celebrations.

Retailers of a certain age will be able to cast their minds back to the 1990s when they didn’t need to look much further than the trusted combo of a ‘POS’ and supply chain management tool. A lot has changed in the decades that have passed since an ever-increasing amount of functions are running in the back end, so a typical retailer now uses a multitude of systems, including marketing systems, communications, RFID, ECMS, ESS, IMS, ICMS, DSS, WMS and many others. There’s been talk of Big Data across multiple business sectors in recent years, and retail is clearly an area where vast amounts of it have been created.
