iVend Deployment

iVend Deployment

In an On-Premise set-up, iVend Retail offers complete back-end functionality both at the Head Office and at the store. In-Store transactions are replicated at the Head Office, allowing quick decision-making, without delays. Every iVend Retail deployment has the following minimum of three components:

iVend Enterprise - is the central repository from where master data is disseminated across the chain and all transactions get consolidated. iVend Enterprise is configured at the head office and used to define organization-wide policies. Master data like products, product groups, categories, customers, customer groups, price lists, special price lists, promotions, gift cards, coupons, taxes, etc. are all defined here and get replicated across the entire retail chain.

iVend Store Manager Console - A typical store setup will have the iVend Store Server running iVend Store Manager Console. This application is used by the store back office users to carry out their day-to-day business functions like receiving of goods, requesting stock transfers, raising purchase orders, managing till operations, stock counting, inventory management, generating different reports, managing user rights, etc.

iVend POS - iVend POS is configured at the store and is used by the cashiers to transact with the customers. iVend POS is the execution point for all retail configurations done for the store where it is installed. iVend Terminal POS’ intuitive user interface can be operated utilizing a touch screen and/or keyboard can mouse or a combination of all three interface methods.

iVend Retail now has a Cloud offering, empowering retailers to focus on their business and not on technology. iVend Retail on Cloud ensures faster business expansion and a speedier Go-To Market without the cost and complexity of deploying an on-premise solution. With iVend Retail on Cloud, back-office functions like management of inventory, promotions, gift cards, coupons, stock take, cash reconciliations, user rights, end-of-day, etc. are executed on the store manager’s console on the Cloud - giving the store manager and the head office users an ‘anytime, anywhere’ accessibility into store operations.

The users at the Head Office get a real-time view into the store operations. Retailers only have to deploy Mobile POS and/or terminal POS at their stores, with all back-office business processes getting executed from the Cloud.

iVend Cloud has been designed in a manner where a retailer can have a mix of traditional in-store and on-premise operations running off a store server AND Cloud-based stores where the store’s back-office is configured in the Cloud. Day-to-day sales transactions are carried out in-store on Mobile or Terminal POS devices.

Large Enterprise retailers now have the unique opportunity to let their traditional brick-and-mortar stores co-exist with stores on the Cloud. It allows them to expand their retail footprint while ensuring ease of use & deployment, streamlined operations, cost optimizations, and unparalleled agility for effective and faster response to transient market dynamics.

Retailers looking for faster and effective expansion only need to deploy Mobile POS at their stores. With the iVend Retail on Cloud offering, it becomes elementary to have all the store back-office and Enterprise functions on the Cloud.
