LightSpeed Mobile POS already being used by retailers across the county
to complete transactions from anywhere in the store on an iPod touch or
MONTREAL, Jan. 5 /CNW/ - At the 2011 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) later this
week, where mobile payments and smartphone applications are expected to
be a highlight, Xsilva Systems will be showcasing the latest addition to its platform, a fully
integrated mobile Point of Sale (POS) system called LightSpeed Mobile.
With LightSpeed Mobile, Xsilva offers retailers the ability to eliminate
impersonal cash register line-ups and instead complete transactions on
the retail floor using the same hardware as Apple does in its own
retail stores. More than just a mobile payment-processing platform,
LightSpeed Mobile offers barcode scanning and ties into LightSpeed's
business and inventory workflows, making it a viable option for
retailers who require a comprehensive back-end system.
"The incredible popularity of handheld devices has changed the game for
retailers," said Dax Dasilva, CEO and founder of Xsilva Systems, which makes a comprehensive suite of retail tools
tailored to the Mac platform under its LightSpeed brand. "Our
LightSpeed Mobile POS gives retailers, regardless of their size, the
opportunity to deploy the latest in retail technology without it
costing millions of dollars in custom development. Retailers and
consumers alike enjoy being able to complete transactions using iPod
touch or iPhone from anywhere in the store. LightSpeed Mobile makes
that both possible and affordable."
This will be Xsilva's first time at CES, which takes place January 6-9
at the Las Vegas Convention Center. In addition to highlighting
LightSpeed Mobile, the company will be introducing conference visitors
to the full suite of its Mac-based LightSpeed POS tools. LightSpeed
combines a POS for front-counter retail with back-office functions such
as inventory management, purchasing, order processing and reporting.
The latest version of LightSpeed features a Point of Sale user
interface that tightly integrates LightSpeed Mobile workflows, features
for multi-store retailers, and expanded support for Xsilva's e-commerce
solution, Web Store.
Xsilva will be on the exhibition floor in the North Hall, Grand Lobby,
Lower Level Meeting Rooms in booth 3937.
