Aptos Launches Mobile-Native App to Help Modern Retail Associates Simplify Store Fulfillment
Aptos, Inc., a renowned company in the field of retail technology solutions, recently launched its mobile-native application, Aptos ONE Store Fulfillment. This stand-alone app is built on the retail industry’s most sophisticated microservices-based SaaS platform, Aptos ONE. It integrates seamlessly with the best-of-breed omnichannel software, including the point of sale and order management solutions offered by Aptos. It allows retailers to meet the rising demand for in-store fulfillment, including buy online, pickup in store (BOPIS), ship from store, and store-to-store orders.
There have been numerous reports of almost 70% of consumers making BOPIS purchases, and this has driven retail store teams to look beyond in-store sales and customer engagement, at orders originating outside of their traditional stores. Flexible fulfillment is becoming a must-have for retailers. The recently launched mobile-native application, Aptos ONE Store Fulfillment permits retail associates to precisely and swiftly fulfill orders. This saves up a lot of time for them to engage with shoppers throughout the store. The application offers insightful, visual workflows to help associates simplify tasks and prioritize them. It also features progress indicators and the next steps for them to stay on track.
Vikas Aron, Product Director, Order Management at Aptos said, “Following the successful launch of the Aptos ONE Store Commerce mobile selling application last year, Aptos is excited to bring to market Aptos ONE Store Fulfillment, the second solution offered on the Aptos ONE platform.”
Retailers stand to gain a lot with the launch of this application. The shared microservices architecture offers more rapid and agile innovation and cloud-native technologies take care of both enterprise scalability and local resiliency. Modern published APIs allow for robust integrations to current solutions, while mobile-first, rich client applications offer great user experience.
“Aptos ONE Store Fulfillment will reduce time spent picking orders, increase pick accuracy, and allow associates to achieve an optimal balance between fulfillment and customer engagement activities,” Aron said. “In doing so, Aptos ONE Store Fulfillment supports retailers’ ability to enhance the guest experience, optimize inventory productivity and, ultimately, drive increased sales.”
