Northern Brewer of Minnesota has implemented Retail Anywhere's end-to-end, cloud-based multi-channel retail software.
The multi-channel retailer with catalog, e-commerce and three brick-and-mortar retail locations wanted to update its former POS solution because it was vulnerable to downtime as it was an Internet-based solution, according to a company press release.
Functionality and downtime were holding the retailer back from achieving good customer service and streamlined efficiencies in the store. With a plan to expand the number of store locations and implement a multi-channel strategy, Northern Brewer called on Retail Anywhere.
"We needed a POS partner with a proven track record in the specialty retail space," Chris Farley, the founder and CEO of Northern Brewer, said in the release. "Retail Anywhere POS with integration to NetSuite will deliver a robust solution along with 360 degrees of visibility throughout our organization, allowing us to improve operations and ultimately satisfy our cross-channel shoppers."
The system runs locally on POS hardware and utilizes Web services to support near real-time, bi-directional integration with NetSuite. The solution delivers an end-to-end, multi-channel retail management system with a single data source that helps midsize retailers unify their business and take advantage of the significant economic benefits of cloud computing.
As a NetSuite Solution Provider, Retail Anywhere provides its customers with NetSuite's ERP platform and required NetSuite retail modules along with Retail Anywhere POS. Retail Anywhere also works with existing NetSuite users, like Northern Brewer, looking to adopt an integrated POS solution.
