Retail and Hospitality in focus
Challenges in retail
More complex requirements for the POS and the omnichannel strategies of the retailers demand new, fast and flexible cash register systems. According to various studies POS solutions will use a large share of IT investments in the near future. The demands on hardware and software have steadily increased over recent years. In hardware it is essentially to fullfill higher technical requirements as well as aspects of design and environmental friendliness such as for example low energy consumption. For the POS solutions the connection to the digital channels has become more and more important. Especially the topic of connecting their own online shops becomes highest priority for most retailers.
MS POS – proposals
MS POS takes this development into account and offers a comprehensive solution portfolio. Everything is based on the Microsoft platform which is becoming more and more important in retail as well as in hospitality. Dynamics 365 as a comprehensive ERP solution and Cegid Retail Y2 as an ERP independent POS solution are modern systems that meet these increased requirements. Specifically Cegid was awarded in 2016 by RIS Leaderboard as a top retail provider and solution in several categories. Since October 2016 MS POS became partner of Cegid and is responsible for DE/AT/CH. But also in hospitality the requirements have changed. Higher security, easy deployment, mobile solutions and availability on various platforms are keys to be successful. Here, MS POS offers the point of sale system unTill® and unTill® MODULED as efficient, uncomplicated solutions for classic restaurants, bars and self-services as well as for restaurant chains.
