At this year’s Rural Small Business Conference (February 11th-13th), we will be showing off our new Skurla’s Grocery Point of Sale system! In addition, we’ll also be demonstrating its built-in eWIC integration – a first for our systems and one of a few certified to work in the State of Alaska.We’ll have a demo system setup so you can see exactly how it works. Our software partner for our POS, Auto-Star, will also be in attendance to be able to answer any questions you may have on the software.
We have been keeping in touch with the State of Alaska regarding the new eWIC program and wanted to give you a quick update.
(What is eWIC? EBT stands for Electronic Benefits Transfer. WIC stands for Women/Infant/Children - a program providing nutrition, education and other support. WIC EBT is an electronic process where the food benefits are automatically added onto a card, similar to a debit card. This card, which will be known as the eWIC card, replaces the current paper vouchers/checks.)
Here's a list of roll out dates from the state's WIC website:
