  • An order management system that strategically routes cross-channel orders according to the retailer’s predefined rules and most optimal supply source;
  • Extensive mobile solutions with features for pop-up stores to sell and capture customer profiles anywhere as well as locate products anywhere; and
  • A white-label app that connects to a POS, order management system or CRM, providing a 360-degree view of customer interactions.
