This end-to-end retail, omnichannel-ready management application allows integration of in-store retail with back office processes and an online storefront. Its data synchronization feature permits up-to-date, accurate reports including lab orders, stock status, sales, delivery, and open orders.

Interoperable APIs facilitate integration with enterprise resource planning (ERP) and other financial applications, and the software’s extensibility kit (SDK) enables retailers to incorporate their unique processes into the application without impacting upgrades or updates.
