Cloud financial and ERP suite provider NetSuite has acquired multi-channel retail management product provider Retail Anywhere, effectively integrating the Retail Anywhere point-of-sale system with NetSuite’s eCommerce platform.
A NetSuite SuiteCloud developer network partner, Retail Anywhere created the Retail Anywhere POS SuiteApp for NetSuite. The product runs on traditional POS hardware as well as Apple iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch mobile devices to simply and securely conduct transactions from anywhere. This unified commerce platform will allow retailers to enhance commerce experiences with capabilities like “shop-online, pickup in store” and “save the sale” to fulfill in-store customer needs from any inventory location, including eCommerce.
“Up to now traditional retailing has been left behind as the rest of the world has embraced cloud technology. With this acquisition, even brick-and-mortar retailers are able to become part of the rapidly evolving global commerce cloud,” said NetSuite general manager, commerce products Andy Lloyd. “By adding an in-store solution to SuiteCommerce, NetSuite is enabling merchants to meet their customers’ demands for cross-channel shopping integration. NetSuite Retail Anywhere further extends the reach of NetSuite’s full platform of business capabilities to the showroom floor, where most retail business still takes place today.”
The Retail Anywhere technology is available today in the U.S., Canada, U.K. and Australia as a component of the NetSuite SuiteCommerce solution.
