TouchSuite has announced the release of its latest point of sale system, Firefly Retail, an Android-based solution that it says gives small and mid-size retail businesses access to the same industry tools and innovations as major U.S. retailers, and assumes the responsibility of other costly business solutions and outside vendor services.
The tablet-based POS includes capabilities such as drag and drop functionality, automated commissions, exchange processing, customizable inventory, wireless print capabilities for labeling, built-in tax rates, and a marketing suite. As new features are added, operating Firefly Retail systems will automatic receive upgrades at no cost, according to the company.
“With so many changes in the retail industry, from the rise of online retailers, to the invention of mobile coupons and payments, it is critical that today’s store owners are equipped with the operating technology that will allows them to compete and to accommodate today’s consumer experience,” said TouchSuite founder and CEO Sam Zietz. “In Firefly Retail, our team has created a highly-advanced and affordable solution that not only bears in mind all of these industry innovations, but also looks to the future to anticipate client growth and impending needs in a world of ever-changing retail technology.”
Firefly Retail is not only accessible from an Android mobile device, but its cloud-based support also means that information is secure and always backed up, and that updates can be made remotely and sync automatically to the main unit. The system comes equipped with primary peripherals including a barcode scanner, receipt printer, cash drawer, and keyboard.
