Doesn’t your most critical system deserve the most advanced automation solution?
As a retailer your point of sales (POS) is your most critical system. It is the point of service for customers and in effect where your business takes place. The role of POS systems today has advanced to handle your inventory, stock, vendor record, membership and recording modules. Many also handle purchase ordering, stock transferal, quotation and barcode issuing and even accounting services.
Therefore, the ability to update thousands of POS end-points as fast as possible is critical as it affects the most important elements of your business such as stock levels, customer satisfaction, compliance and profitability. In short, it determines your business agility.
As POS systems advance in functionality (mobile end-points, built in scanner capabilities etc.) more updates and maintenance is also required, updates that can vary from new pricing data to software upgrade to the POS itself updating it to the latest release. With many organizations managing thousands and even tens of thousands points of sale end-point devices and local servers, the need for governed and orchestrated management of these updates is essential for the security and performance of your organization.
This is where Release Automation can help, Release Automation lets you assemble “pipelines” to deliver all your updates to all of your endpoints from a central application that gives you complete control, visibility and compliance assurance for the entire process – everyday across all of your organization.
