Focus on customer experiences and operational efficiency
Retail is a sector undergoing rapid change, and Covid19 has further intensified pressure on the need for innovation. The customers expect seamless and unified interaction between digital and physical channels. Creating this in an efficient and consistent manner can be a challenge with a silo-based technical architecture and processes that are not interrelated. A modern retailer therefore needs solutions that are created with the reality of today and tomorrow in mind.
Traditional POS systems
“We have spent the last four years surveying and evaluating available POS systems in the Nordic market, and quickly came to the conclusion that there was a great potential for new solutions, born in the cloud and developed with omnichannel chain operations in mind,” says Svein Cato Winther, Advisor & Business Development Manager with Embriq. “In GOC Retail and Sitoo we have found partners that will contribute new and interesting opportunities in this area,” Winther says
Digitalisation for retail
“Successful digitalisation of Retail requires good collaboration between the best suppliers, technologies and challenging customers with ambitions to succeed with omnichannel retail,” says Mats Gunnarsson, Co-founder of GOC Retail. “We have leading expertise and solutions for POS solutions, an established partnership with Sitoo in several markets, and in partnership with Embriq we are looking forward to delivering these concepts to the Norwegian market where we see that the scope of opportunity is huge,” Gunnarson says.
“There is a real synergy between these companies, and with our combined knowledge, expertise and experience, we know that we will be able to deliver disruptive solutions that will be highly visible on the Norwegian market,” says Jens Levin, CEO of Sitoo. “With our cloud-native POS and Unified Commerce Platform we have carved out a key position in Sweden, and we are very optimistic in terms of opportunities in Norway,” Levin says.
