New Point of Sale Solution Unifies In-Store and Online Brand Experiences, Enabling Omnichannel Commerce from a Single Cloud Commerce Platform
NetSuite Inc. (NYSE: N), the industry's leading provider of cloud-based financials / ERP and omnichannel commerce software suites, today announced SuiteCommerce InStore, the first system that integrates comprehensive omnichannel capabilities into an enterprise-class, mobile-first, point-of-sale (POS) solution and seamlessly unifies the online and in-store customer journey. SuiteCommerce InStore is designed to empower the sales associate and elevate the shopper’s brand experience. For the first time, retailers will be able to equip sales associates with complete inventory and customer information to engage shoppers more effectively, drive more sales and provide a satisfying shopping experience.
NetSuite’s SuiteCommerce InStore brings the full omnichannel commerce experience into the retail storefront to provide consumers with the highest level of customer service, product knowledge and personalization today’s shoppers expect from retailers. Store associates are better able to free themselves from the cash-wrap and engage shoppers from anywhere in the store. Built on NetSuite’s powerful order and inventory management system, SuiteCommerce InStore provides visibility into inventory anywhere in the business, including the ability to combine different fulfillment models such as cash-and-carry and ship-to-home in a single transaction. And with full POS capabilities for conducting complex transactions such as discounting, multi-tender, override, gift receipts, suspend/resume transactions and more, SuiteCommerce InStore handles them all with ease.
Further, SuiteCommerce InStore helps to unify the online and in-store experiences. Customers are able to access products they have added to their ecommerce shopping carts or wish lists at the point-of-sale and add them to an in-store transaction with a few clicks. Products that shoppers would like to save for later can be added back to their ecommerce wish lists. And the full capabilities of NetSuite’s omnichannel CRM provide a retail associate access to a comprehensive 360-degree customer history from the store floor. A visual timeline shows all purchases, returns, exchanges, store visits and service requests regardless of channel, with the ability to drill into any transaction.
