First Hosted Ltd, a United Kingdom-based partner for NetSuite, have launched FirstPOS, a new point-of-sale management NetSuite application for the NetSuite SuiteCloud Computing Platform. The solution helps users manage the entire retail process from point of sale to production of management information. Built using NetSuite’s SuiteCloud development platform, the new SuiteApp can help NetSuite retail customers increase revenues and margins by boosting efficiency of sales transactions.
The announcement was made today at SuiteWorld 2011, NetSuite’s inaugural conference designed for NetSuite customers, solution providers, independent software providers, developers and system integrators. SuiteWorld 2011 is being held in San Francisco.
NetSuite’s SuiteCloud is a comprehensive offering of on-demand products, development tools, and services designed to help customers and commercial software developers take advantage of the significant economic benefits of cloud computing. The complete SuiteCloud offering includes NetSuite’s multi-tenant, always-on SaaS infrastructure; the NetSuite Business Suite of applications for Accounting/ERP, CRM and Ecommerce; and comprehensive development tools to create cloud-based business applications on top of NetSuite.
“FirstPOS provides an unbeatable solution for retailers,” says Andrew Peddie, Managing Director, First Hosted. “From its easy-to-use touch screen interface to its reporting and customer loyalty features, FirstPOS gives retailers total control of their business.”
The solution features an easy-to-use touch-screen interface, barcode and manual product selection, simple multi-buy quantity input, discounting support, cash, check and card payment method acceptance, sales reporting by category, manager end-of-day report printing, customer loyalty scheme support, staff sign-ons, receipt printing with personalised logo, and store information and promotional messages.
Working with NetSuite
The new NetSuite application automatically synchronizes transaction input with NetSuite, and maintains an on-premise local database as a backup in case of network failure. Also, it supports the growth of loyalty schemes by supporting input of customer data using a barcode, swipe card, or other identification method, and can be configured to trigger specific actions upon scanning of the customer’s identification code.
“Even with the growth of online sales, brick-and-mortar stores represent an important sales channel for our retail customers,” says Guido Haarmans, Vice President of Developer Programs and Business Development at NetSuite. “This new SuiteApp synchronizes with other sales channels and makes use of inventory management and other NetSuite features, so it gives NetSuite customers a strong addition to their multi-channel retail management tools.”
