Third-party business applications can be fused into cloud-based OpSuite retail solution, enabling exceptional management of all retail operations

  • Enables precise supply chain management and a seamless omnichannel experience by integrating data and business rules in one place, in real-time
  • Small and mid-sized retailers can take the cost advantages of cloud-based OpSuite solution while still realising full payback on prior investments

Derby, UK – 30 January, 2013Davidson Richards, Microsoft’s leading European RMS development partner, has announced that its low-cost, cloud-based OpSuite retail solution now allows its business rules to be exposed to, and data to be communicated to and from, any third-party supplied business application involved in the retail operations cycle. The development allows small and medium-sized retailers to upgrade to a fully integrated retail system to improve business control and provide customers with a consistent experience across every channel, without the cost and hassle involved in ripping out and replacing existing applications.
By incorporating operational data produced from all existing applications – such as finance systems, e-commerce sites, online marketplaces, warehouses and bricks-and-mortar stores – OpSuite allows retailers to optimise inventory deployment across all channels and manage the supply chain in real-time, with exceptional ease and precision. Retailers can enjoy the cost advantages of the cloud-based OpSuite retail management solution while also achieving full payback on prior investments and having the freedom to add new applications as required.

"The fact that all business applications, including those supplied by third parties, can be fused into the OpSuite retail solution is a ground-breaking development for SMBs," comments Richard Goodley, CEO, Davidson Richards. "No longer will they have to rely on either manually processing data gathered from isolated silos, or have data gathered into one system but lose its value by not doing so in real-time. OpSuite is unique is being designed to be open and ready to fuse with third party applications. It allows retailers to offer an integrated omnichannel experience and to manage their supply chain with incredible precision, without the usual crippling costs of having to 'rip out and replace'. Cost is further kept down due to the cloud-based nature of the solution."
