PR Log - Nov 08, 2012 - LivePOS Inc, a pioneer in cloud POS solutions, has released the App Center, enabling retailers to instantly connect in-store POS systems with a rapidly growing number of web shopping services.
Consumers increasingly rely on online stores, blogs and social media to research products and prices, before deciding which stores to visit. Retailers who do not provide a unified shopping experience across physical and virtual world are at a strategic disadvantage. Traditional IT approaches for bridging those worlds are no longer viable, given the explosive growth of online retail services.
LivePOS with App Center provides a one-click solution to integrate and synchronize in-store POS solutions with online services. For instance, retailers who use LivePOS in their brick and mortar store and Shopify for their online store can now integrate the two by downloading the Shopify App from the LivePOS App Center. The inventories of the brick and mortar and online store will then link and consumers will be able to determine the product line and inventory levels of the physical store by visiting the online store.
As another example, Perkville provides retailers with an easy and powerful way to setup a customer loyalty program. A retailer who uses the Perkville and LivePOS solutions can now link the two together by downloading the Perkville App from the LivePOS App Center. The POS consumer database will automatically synchronize email information across those systems, providing for more targeted email campaigns.
Customers can access the App Center online, though their POS dashboards. There, they can click on the app they want to add and within minutes, integration is complete. The App Center is easy to use. Customers can even make suggestion on what apps they like to see released next.
Liad Biton, LivePOS’s CEO says “the App Center makes it easier for retailers to compete online. By releasing apps that will connect the physical store with the internet, LivePOS will help retailers in social media, online sales, inventory control, employee management, store security and more. We have gotten positive feedback from our customers for the apps that we have released and are working on adding more integration for our ever growing App Center, which we plan to release soon.”
