Summary
  • K mart is connecting 2,204 stores in the US via a $50 million satellite-based data and video telecommunications network. Each store presently has an IBM Series I minicomputer and at least three AT-class processors. The company expects to have about 20,000 processors in stores within five years. Symbol scanning cash registers make it possible for inventory personnel and buyers to obtain daily updates of merchandise available in each store. Satellite communications reduce time necessary to run credit authorizations. Small local area networks (LANs) are being developed for each store so that several processors can share files.
