Seldom will you find anything that can’t be associated with an App. In a world dominated by the ever present App, where the consumer has immediate access to information in the palm of their hand, its imperative that retailers embrace this new form of marketing or risk losing that potential customer to the competing retailer who does.
B2B Soft, a leader in business-to-business software solutions specializing in retail management for the wireless/cellular retail industry, is pleased to announce a new partnership with Retailigence that is fully integrated with B2B Soft’s flagship Point-of-Sale solution, Wireless Standard. The strategic partnership in which the Retailigence Data as a Service platform will enable B2B Soft’s Wireless Standard and Retail Time platform customers to make their inventory data available on web and mobile applications, allowing shoppers to find their products when they need them - right now, in stores nearby.
