FOLSOM, CA – January 10, 2011 – Exactly a year ago, at NRF 2010 Retail Pro achieved a major milestone by launching phase 1 of project "Aruba”. The vision behind Aruba is providing retailers with an ever advancing SaaS solution boasting ease of use, reduced acquisition and maintenance costs, faster deployment and real-time data. This year, Retail Pro took the next step.
To celebrate its 20th brand anniversary, Retail Pro launched a feature that is true to its core value of providing customers with smart retail solutions to give them the winning edge in their business.
Encouraging community and openness, Retail Pro created a Retail Pro App Market. An online market place complete with libraries of customizations available for Retail Pro systems, brings together the developer community talent and its end users. Retail Pro App Market provides customers with instant access to available solutions, instant purchasing capabilities and allows to significantly cut costs of customization. Most apps also include post sale services, such as implementation, maintenance and support, continuing to deliver on the Retail Pro service standards.
It’s not surprising that the idea of utilizing apps is gaining more acceptance among businesses. It gives retailers a chance to get the most coveted features fast, while utilizing something that is already theirs – a solid POS solution.
“We are excited to be the first POS solution provider to enter the app store arena, and give retailers something they all are looking for today – instant service, extensibility and cost controls”, said Kerry Lemos, Retail Pro CEO. “We wanted to empower our customers to utilize the breadth and depth of the Retail Pro product suite by integrating desired new features while leveraging their existing infrastructures. It makes tremendous sense for businesses looking to add preferred features without making a sizable capital investment “
“We are very excited to offer this great resource to our community” summarized Kerry Lemos. Helping customers leverage their technology investments in Spartan economic times once again reinforces Retail Pro’s commitment to the success of their customers.
Retail Pro App Market will be featured at the 2011 NRF Conference in New York’s Javits Center on January 10-11. Visit booth #2064 and experience why retailers worldwide trust their operations to Retail Pro.
