The fastest way to bring innovation into your stores

Minimizing time-to-store in five steps

 

Customization

STEP — 01

Basic Customization through Parameters

Even the most complex corporate structures can be managed efficiently with a small footprint. The OmniPOS® multi-client capability allows you to run different business areas or sales lines in parallel on one database installation. This lays the foundation for running the solution on a software-as-a-service basis or even in the cloud.

 

Process Modeling

STEP — 02

Process Modeling

A Domain-Specific Language (DSL) defines the internal workflow and operation procedures of the checkout. Retailers can directly adapt, transfer and activate the generated process descriptions in real time, without a software update or separate rollout.

 

User Interfaces

STEP — 03

Implementation of User Interfaces in HTML5

Implementing the immediate user environment is achieved by customizing the structure and design of the graphical user interface. It is based on HTML5 and CSS, which makes it extremely flexible and easy to adapt to the needs of different device classes.

 

App-Enablement

STEP — 04

App-Enablement

App-enablement for OmniPOS® is a revolutionary expansion concept. It allows retailers to integrate external apps directly into the POS interface. They are able to communicate with the checkout and access external web services via an API. As a result, functional extensions can be carried out very quickly, without interference with the core system. The apps provide additional features for the user or useful end-user applications right at the POS. Examples include customer- and context-specific product recommendations, detailed product information, or the process-oriented integration of third-party systems.

Extension by Programming

STEP — 05

Extension by Programming

OmniPOS® provides a complete software development kit (SDK) that enables release-compatible extensions at all levels of the system. Rigorous development patterns ensure that customer-specific adjustments and extensions do not alter the standard product. Documented APIs, a clear layer architecture, and technologies such as Inversion of Control and Dependency Injection prevent changes to the product core and reduce migration complexity.
