Multipost Retail Systems, (http://www.multipost.ca) a leader in point of sale (POS) and inventory management and control systems for small- to mid-sized retailers, is pleased to announce “eStore ‘360,” a powerful e-commerce software module that allows retailers to publish inventory items from their “Smart Vendor” POS software directly to their online store on Shopify.
According to Multipost Retail Systems, today’s retailers are looking for a POS system to integrate with e-commerce and inventory management. The eStore ‘360 program pulls it all together with remarkable simplicity, eliminating the need to spend time and money on manually maintaining product prices, descriptions, images, quantities, and more in both the Smart Vendor retail store and their online store.
“Shopify is one of the few ‘hosted’ e-commerce platforms that provides a rich enough API [application programming interface] and the scalability we need,” says Greg Smith, sales manager at Multipost Retail Systems. “Without this automation, a retailer would need to take some form of data exported from Smart Vendor and develop a module that would populate whatever cart they decided to go with—a complex and expensive undertaking that requires expertise on both sides.”
In addition, Shopify also provides all its customers with a world-class content delivery network (CDN), run by Akamai Technologies at no additional charge. This means that retailers, no matter where they are located, will perform at optimal speeds, according to Multipost Retail Systems. Faster load times are shown to generate more sales. All stores powered by Shopify include Level 1 PCI compliant web hosting and shopping cart software.
“Publishing a new product to your online store is also easy with eStore ‘360. Further, eStore ‘360 makes processing web orders just as easy as transacting with a customer in-store. With eStore ‘360, the retailer also has the ability to share real-time inventory with the webstore and/or warehouse and set up store pickups or home shipments,” Smith adds. “This practically eliminates stockout situations, thereby enhancing the customers’ satisfaction and increasing sales. Best of all, eStore ‘360 is extremely affordable, and allows the small- to mid-size retailer another channel to market to potential customers outside their brick-and-mortar location.”
eStore ‘360 for Shopify will be launched at the Canadian Gift and Tableware Association Show at the Toronto International Centre and Toronto Congress Centre on August 11th–14th, 2013.
