Asda has announced that it has selected Fujitsu UK and Ireland as its IT partner, as the supermarket chain embarks on a project to rebrand the 147 Netto stores that it acquired last year.
As part of the deal, Fujitsu will decommission old Netto systems and conduct a full in-store IT refresh, including servers, tills, point-of-sales terminals and self-service checkouts, in line with infrastructure in Asda's other 370 stores nationwide.
Each Netto store will be closed for two weeks while the rebrand takes place.
The rebrand is scheduled to start this month and will be completed by the end of the year.
It follows a ruling by the Office of Fair Trading in March that Asda's £778m takeover of the budget retailer will not be referred to the Competition Commission.
