Two Aussie companies are partnering in creating a fully integrated PS solution for retailers — one of them being Telstra-owned e-commerce platform Neto, and POS'99, a reseller of popular POS hardware.
The POS solutions are a way of combining online and offline storefronts in one centralised platform — the way Neto describes it, small online stores can now move easily into an offline presence, and offline storefronts can bring their businesses online in a way that combines perfectly with their store POS systems.
"We’re seeing a lot of smaller online retailers have a desire to set up a physical store, but previously they have struggled to unify their online and offline presence, which has made running both sides of the business challenging," said Neto COO, Jason Titman. "Through the Neto platform, and backed by POS'99's hardware, this is no longer an issue. We're making it easy and seamless for retailers to sell across all of their channels."
Instead of using custom hardware, Neto and POS'99 are selling POS packages that are compatible with common hardware — such as PCs, iPads and Mac — with offerings from POS'99 including cash drawers, stands, receipt printers and scanners. These are all sold either separately or in easy bundles.
The in-store POS system will still work even if there is an internet outage, with a cloud-based system automatically syncing as soon as you're online again. The tech is scalable for any sized business, with Neto being able to service anywhere from one to 100 outlets.
