The software many retailers bought to run their retail and business applications 10, 15, even 20 years ago may be reliable but difficult to innovate on. The challenge lies in replacing the old with the new, which can take months or even years.
The seamless digital journey that shoppers crave depends on a suite of integrated technologies functioning well in the background — so the same prices, promotions, and products are available regardless of the channel. And the right software platform, which new apps can be built on, is a critical piece of the equation.
Flooid Solutions, by Flooid, allows retailers to implement new use cases and add new apps — self-checkout or mobile point of sale, for example — independent of the platform itself. Each new app offers different functionality, but their data feeds go through the same back-end system. In this way, the platform provides a base for practically unlimited, and easily deployed, innovation.
