Kittery Trades Up to a New Reality

NorthgateArinso (Northgate) has announced a long-term partnership with sporting goods powerhouse Kittery Trading Post, providing the Reality solution to Kittery's operating platform. Kittery Trading Post has been a pillar of the sporting goods market since 1938 and specializes in hunting, fishing, camping, canoeing and winter sports - providing a one-stop shop for the outdoors adventurer. It was recently awarded first place by Esquire Magazine in its list of the Great Men's Stores of America.

"I don't have the time to get involved in the operating system," states Kittery's MIS director Jim Cronin. "I need a system that is stable, reliable and recoverable. It didn't take long for me to see that what Reality had to offer was far superior to what I was experiencing."

Kittery's need for a rock-solid system is especially vital in the area of firearms sales, which require government-enforced licensing documentation to be completed online.

"We can now look ahead with confidence that we have a stable and adaptable platform to drive our business forward," says Cronin. "We have had to adapt and change a lot since the company was founded and during my 27 years here. This is definitely a change for the better."

"We have total belief in our product and every new step is reinforcement of that," adds Mark Pick, Northgate's vice president - Reality. "We look forward to a long and successful partnership."
