LONDON, July 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
A single integrated solution for in-store and online commerce needs
Lightspeed, the world's most powerful cloud-based point of sale system for retailers and restaurateurs is today announcing the availability of its omnichannel product. This solution allows small and medium sized retailers in the UK and Europe to deliver a cohesive, efficient and effortless shopping experience in-store and online.
Dax Dasilva, Founder and CEO said:
"Consumer expectations have never been higher. They want their purchasing experiences to be convenient, intuitive, and customised, whether they're finding products on the web or in-store. This is why omnichannel is so revolutionary for these independent retailers."
Lightspeed's groundbreaking omnichannel solution allows SME's to easily launch an online store and sync it with its in-store point of sale system, putting them in the fast lane of modern retailing.
Lightspeed helps independent retailers to become global players by:
- Saving time and improving efficiency in a rapidly changing retail environment
- Centralizing operations, products, inventory and customer data
- Obtaining a single view of sales data and reporting
- Reaching a broader audience by going international (multi-currency, multi-language)
- "Getting social:" creating unique content, engaging new customers and building a community
- Offering a consistent brand experience across any channel and device while building brand loyalty
- Increasing revenue and running a profitable business
In order to compete in the UK's ever changing retail industry, independent retailers need to be flexible in accommodating their customers as they shift from in-store, to mobile to online and back again. Customers now expect to be able to shop at their convenience instead of being restricted by opening hours, geography or in-store stock levels.
Dasilva continues, "Embracing omnichannel is the most effective way these retailers can thrive and compete, so we decided to do the heavy lifting by creating a simple and intuitive solution. We believe everyone benefits when independent businesses are given the opportunity and tools to compete on a level playing field."
