Hispanic electronics chain switches to Linux

DJ DeFi DJ DeFi writes  |  more than 5 years ago

DJ DeFi writes "La Curacao is a Los Angeles-based chain of Hispanic-focused electronics stores. Its locations are decorated with symbols of ancient Mayan and Aztec civilizations: the chain's motto, "Un Poco De Su Pais," translates to "a little bit of your country."

While La Curacao enjoys strong levels of customer loyalty, its previous operating system sometimes left both customers and sales associates frustrated. Transactions could take a long time to complete, which prompted some sales associates to abort the process and start over... In addition, the system would occasionally crash and remain down for 15 or 20 minutes — usually during the company's busiest sales periods.

Read about how La Curaco took the plunge and switched to Linux."
