Smart & Final Inc. Selects Trintech’s Solutions for Data Delivery and Transaction Reconciliation


US-based Smart & Final Inc. to Optimize Transaction Processing with Trintech’s ReconNET Software and DataFlow Transaction Network Services

Dallas, Texas/Dublin, Ireland - 8 August, 2006 - Trintech Group Plc (NASDAQ: TTPA), a leading provider of transaction reconciliation and payment infrastructure solutions, today announced that Smart & Final Inc. has selected ReconNET to automate the verification and reconciliation of its cash banking and credit card transactions, and the DataFlow Transaction Network to provide electronic bank data delivery.

Smart & Final, through various subsidiaries, sells food, foodservice products and culinary equipment through non-membership warehouse stores and wholesale stores. The 130-year old company operates over 250 non-membership warehouse grocery stores in the western United States and northwestern Mexico.

“We were using a homegrown automated reconciliation solution that still required significant manual effort. It also wasn’t compatible with our new general ledger system,” said Wayne Geffen, VP and Controller for Smart & Final Stores. “It was time for us to find a fully automated and scaleable solution – one that can handle our present needs while providing functionality such as gift card and NSF reconciliation that can be adopted in the future.”

The installation of ReconNET will help Smart & Final to streamline its cash management processes, and provide effective risk management and reporting across all its stores. The DataFlow Transaction Network will provide standardized, validated daily electronic bank data for the company’s regional banks. The DataFlow Transaction Network is designed to save Smart & Final valuable time, eliminating the daily effort of retrieving data in various formats from multiple banks, and converting the data for their financial systems.

“Smart & Final’s replacement of its homegrown reconciliation solution with Trintech’s solutions demonstrates its confidence in our ability to optimize performance,” said John Harte, General Manager of Trintech’s Funds Management Systems Division. “Smart & Final joins a growing number of leading warehouse stores and grocery chains that have selected ReconNET to streamline reconciliation processes and shorten end-of-month balancing, and DataFlow to simplify bank and account data collection.”
