Epicor introduces Retail Store solution for Windows 8 tablets 

The product’s Windows 8 Tablet Edition enables retailers to run a full point of sale (POS) installation on Windows tablet devices. Its capabilities include check out, access to the back office, inventory management, time and attendance, and dashboard functionality.

“Nearly a decade ago, Epicor created the first mobile shopping experience for handheld devices, personal digital assistants and more recently iPads and iPods — and over time it became clear that businesses desired mobility on a common platform they were accustomed to working with — Windows,” said Ian Rawlins, VP, retail product marketing, Epicor. “To this end, we’re excited to introduce our Epicor Retail Store Windows Tablet Edition to fulfill retailers’ aspirations to deliver a superior shopping experience.”

The product does not benefit just the employer and employees, however; it can also benefit the customer by providing faster, more efficient answers to their product-related questions. And with added mobility, store associates will no longer be tethered to desktops when doing inventory searches – meaning they can assist customers when and where they’re needed.

“Windows 8 can help retailers grow their businesses through better customer experiences and reduced costs,” said Craig Dewar, director, Windows Product Marketing, Microsoft. “Retailers must stay ahead of ever-changing consumer expectations and shopping behaviors, and with today’s mobile world, Windows 8 offers the right components to deliver better customer engagement, enhanced business processes and more flexibility across the board when it comes to store operations.”
