Paso Robles, CA (PRWEB) December 22, 2011
Retail Anywhere, a leading provider of point of sale and retail management systems for midsize retailers, today announced that Mahamosa, LLC, DBA Mahamosa Gourmet Teas, Spices & Herbs, of Atlanta, Georgia selected and implemented Retail Anywhere’s POS and Retail Management System to support growth plans for its socially and environmentally responsible gourmet tea and spice company.
Mahamosa launched an eCommerce site in May of 2011, selling gourmet loose leaf teas, spices, herbs, and tea-related wares with plans to donate 50% of after-tax net profits to support a variety of charitable causes such as hunger, poverty, environment, clean water, and animal/natural life welfare through the charitable aspect of its business, “Being in the World®.” With the success of its eCommerce site, Mahamosa was ready to start selling through other channels and recently opened kiosk retail ocations at Perimeter and Cumberland Malls in Atlanta, Georgia.
“As a brand new small business, our POS system represents one of our largest upfront and ongoing investments,” said Raghu R. Raju, owner of Mahamosa. “After thorough research, we selected Retail Anywhere because its SaaS solution model allowed us to reduce our up-front costs in addition to delivering a robust and real-time retail POS that we could learn quickly and grow with. The user interface is friendly as well as customizable, so we can express and represent our company and company’s logo via the POS screen. Additionally, the POS software is an on-premise solution, so our retail locations can continue to operate when the Internet in the mall goes down.”
Ease-of-use was another key factor for Mahamosa in selecting a retail management system. Along with Retail Anywhere’s POS software, the retailer selected IBM SurePOS 500 hardware for its durability, easy-to-use touchscreen platform, and Microsoft Windows Embedded POSReady operating system. Together, this gave Mahamosa a proven solution that is flexible, easy-to-use, and extremely cost effective. Mahamosa donates 50% of their after-tax net profits to charity, making a cost effective solution vital to their business model.
The retail SaaS delivery model from Retail Anywhere includes a hybrid of on-demand and on-premise software along with professional services, upgrades, maintenance and support; all with minimal upfront costs and low monthly fees. The retail SaaS solution also reduces the requirements for IT resources and time required to have retailers up and running on the new system.
“Retail Anywhere is thrilled to be working with and helping Mahamosa achieve their business goals,” said Branden Jenkins, CEO of Retail Anywhere. “I’m confident that our solutions and services will make a positive impact on their business enabling Mahamosa to further support their non-profit organizations.”
