Monmouth County Vocational School Career Center worked with STCR Business Systems to install a 2 lane IBM scanning system to run in the store. These systems were such a success that Monmouth recently installed 6 more lanes of IBM registers, Datalogic Scanner/scales, Pentium server and IBM POS software. They are now running 8 full lanes of the IBM POS system.
