CRT Service expanding cooperation with the Sportmaster Group store chain
CRT Service, the largest Russian high-tech service company and part of the MAYKOR Group, announces a broader cooperation with Sportmaster Group, which unites the same name retail chain and O’STIN stores.

Earlier CRT Service provided maintenance for the Group's cash register equipment in Siberian, Southern and North Caucasian federal districts. Now the service mix and covered territory have become much broader. Now CRT Service engineers will provide integrated maintenance of the Sportmaster Group cash register equipment in eight constituent entities of the North-Western and three constituent entities of the Far Eastern federal districts. In addition to that, the maintenance plan will include air conditioning systems installed in the Sportmaster and O’STIN stores in three regions of the Privolzhsky federal district.

In addition to keeping the equipment up and running, CRT Service offers user advice on operation-related issues.

"Our cooperation with the Sportmaster Group is both an important project and one of the examples of successful implementation of service projects in such a dynamic industry as the retail sector. Integrated maintenance programs offered by CRT Service in Russian regions on one-stop-shop (i.e. single contractor) basis, allow our partner to optimize its business processes involving operation of cash register and other equipment, and maintenance/servicing of the large inventory of equipment operated by the Sportmaster Group. For us the expansion of our cooperation is demonstrates the high quality of our services, and the demand for outsourced maintenance of various equipment, which exists between retailers," says Vladimir Volkov, CRT Service Vice President for Key Account Management.
