NRF is a wonderful show for multiple reasons – it’s where over 40,000 retail industry professionals gather to share ideas, build partnerships, and experience the year’s latest technology. Speaking of partnerships, one of Star’s favorite reasons for being at Retail’s Big Show is the dedicated time we give to catching up with our many retail software partners.
In today’s blog post, discover how one of Star’s POS software partners, SuiteRetail, is enhancing its retail offerings this year. Learn more about our partnership in the below video interview filmed at NRF 2020 and stay tuned for even more partnership interviews in our upcoming Star Spotlight NRF 2020 Edition blog posts.
What Does SuiteRetail Do?
SuiteRetail's goal is to simplify retail from the store to the back-office.
In-store retail is too complex. Serious challenges with dated hardware, obscurely priced and poor performing payment processing, and outrageous legacy software requirements translates to lost revenue, escalating costs, lines out the door and unhappy shoppers.
With SuitePOS, SuiteRetail has reimagined the point-of-sale and improved the in-store experience and outcomes for retailers. The SuitePOS app was engineered to take away complexity from the store and move it to the back-office; where it belongs. Retailers using SuitePOS benefit from easy and fast deployments, increased shopper satisfaction, and quick, effortless checkout.
The end result is a superior shopping experience, more sales and lower IT costs.
What are Some of SuiteRetail’s Key Products?
- SuitePOS: SuitePOS – a single POS app that works on iPad and iPhone – enhances retail POS by incorporating modern, secure payment processing and out-of-the-box integration with common retail business platforms like NetSuite and Salesforce. The end result? Simplified retail operations, an improved customer experience, and an increased revenue-per-square-foot.
- Fixed-Lane: SuiteRetail’s fixed-lane POS features intuitive software and sleek hardware, meaning retailers will enjoy high-speed, efficient transactions.
- Mobile: Understanding sales can take place anywhere on the sales floor, SuiteRetail’s mobile checkout capabilities allow retailers to quickly complete transactions while chatting naturally with customers.
- Clienteling: Personalization is as easy as can be with SuiteRetail’s in-hand clienteling device. The device allows employees to access a 360-degree view of shopper and product information, and can register customers for future marketing, produce relevant upselling opportunities, and enable workers to place orders for out-of-stock items.
What’s New with SuiteRetail in 2020?
SuiteRetail is doing a lot this year! First, they are proud to announce a new international support offering, with SuitePOS now being supported in Canada, Australia, and the United Kingdom. Also on SuiteRetail’s agenda for this year is deepened support for NetSuite ERP, and introducing support for PayPal Here. These updates will not only enhance brick-and-mortar functions for retailers, but also ecommerce.
