Aptos, Inc., the retail technology solutions provider, has announced significant updates, integrations and innovations across its Singular Retail suite, the end-to-end portfolio of software applications designed exclusively for retailers.
With its latest release, Aptos introduced major updates and functional enhancements across all solutions, including its systems for point of sale, retail planning and order management.
According to Mike Verdeyen, Aptos’ Chief Product Officer, Aptos has materially increased its research and development investment to accelerate development at scale, globalisation across products and disruptive innovation.
As part of this commitment, notable updates from Aptos’ latest product release include:
- Aptos Merchandising and Aptos Analytics are now fully integrated with Aptos’ planning and supply chain applications that were acquired from TXT Retail in late 2017. These integrations allow retailers to break down silos inherent within the merchandise, customer and order lifecycles to better anticipate demand and ensure inventory is placed in the most profitable locations.
- Aptos Store for point of sale now offers out-of-the-box support for 38 countries, with an additional four countries in 2019, to support retailers’ international expansion efforts. Aptos Store also introduced several enhancements focused on omnichannel associate and customer experiences and now offers standard integration with leading payment solution providers Aurus and Adyen.
- Aptos Enterprise Order Management’s latest release, available to customers in late January 2019, will introduce a new, modern architecture that offers superior application scalability and performance. An enhanced routing and inventory publishing engine will leverage the new architecture to help retailers maximise sales across channels and minimise shipping costs while increasing inventory turns. The new architecture provides unsurpassed reliability and scale for large-volume retailers and during peak sales periods. Also featured in the release, Aptos Enterprise Order Management will be fully integrated with Aptos Analytics, offering retailers a single enterprise view and actionable insight across omnichannel operations, from planning to orders to transactions.
In addition to major developments across its solutions, Aptos continues to advance Aptos ONE, its microservices-based SaaS platform. The platform extends across the entire Aptos suite, offering one set of universal capabilities designed to enable retailers to compete in the complex world of constant disruption.
“Aptos is entering 2019 with extreme energy, investment and momentum for its products and the Aptos ONE Platform,” said Noel Goggin, Aptos CEO and culture leader. “With consumer behaviour fundamentally changed, growth paths for retailers constantly shifting and technology disruption at an all-time high, retailers need technology partners that will go ‘all-in’ on retail and invest accordingly.
“Since day one, Aptos has been 100 percent focused on the needs of retailers and their customers; we offer the most proven and robust end-to-end omnichannel retail solutions, and with Aptos ONE, we have pioneered a path to the future, enabling retailers to create modern and flexible technology infrastructures that will allow their organisations to continuously adapt to change.”
