Barneys New York is going mobile this holiday season with MICROS-Retail's miStore mobile point-of-sale in its flagship Manhattan store.
The mobile system allows more freedom for employees to navigate throughout the store while conducting sales and locating inventory via portable Apple products, predominately the iPod Touch, Sean O'Reilly, vice president of information technology of Barneys New York, Inc., said in a press release.
"The mobile POS will help Barneys New York to manage the high volume of expected shoppers and allow quick checkout, not only for typical holiday shopping traffic, but for the increased traffic for the reopening of our transformed CO-OP space," he said.
Barneys New York is using the holiday season to launch miStore but has plans to expand it to stores across the country.
