CRT Service launches partnership with Accessorize retail chain
CRT Service, Russia's largest high-tech service company and part of the MAYKOR Group, has signed a cooperation agreement with Monsoon Accessorize-Russia to provide IT infrastructure maintenance services to Accessorize chain stores.

The contract provides for subscription-based maintenance of automated cash registers and other point of sale (POS) equipment. Subscription maintenance is a new technical service trend for retail businesses. The advantage of this form of client service consists of the fact that the retail chain pays a fixed subscription fee for an unlimited number of service visits. In addition, CRT Service engineers will install CCTV equipment in all new Accessorize stores.

As part of the agreement, CRT Service will provide subscription-based maintenance service to 60 Accessorize stores. Service region: Privolzhsky, Southern, Siberian, Central, Northwestern and Urals federal districts.

"We are enthusiastic about CRT Service's new provision of subscription-based IT maintenance service for our stores. We believe this form of relationship with a service provider to be the most reasonable and effective. The quality of their work and fast response times give us confidence that our POS's will be able to avoid downtime. We at Accessorize believe that our IT infrastructure is in the hands of a reliable service provider and hope to establish effective long-term cooperation," says Andrey Shtender, IT Director of Monsoon Accessorize-Russia.

"Our new partner – the Accessorize chain – is a national client, which offers us the new experience of working with a large network retailer. We offer a form of client service that is still unusual and hope that the Accessorize retail chain will see the true value of this new approach to IT infrastructure service. The conclusion of a single contract with CRT Service will allow our client to save a considerable amount of money, to effectively manage its internal business processes, and to guarantee the same high level of service in all the regions where we are present," says Stanislav Brodyansky, CRT Service’s Vice President for Business Development.
