The technology landscape for POS continues to change as retailers look for new ways to engage with their connected customers.

“Our research provides a comprehensive look at the point-of-sale software vendor landscape in the apparel and softlines retail sector. With consumers’ expectations for their customer experiences evolving so rapidly, retailers are under pressure to respond with omni-channel commerce services and capabilities. The point of sale continues to be a crucial component for delivering an exceptional customer experience,” said Robert Eastman, research manager, Worldwide Retail Technology Strategies for IDC Retail Insights. “In this research, we offer a fresh look at the new omni-channel capabilities that POS software vendors are delivering, and which POS software vendors are leading in their innovation.”
“The Mi9 POS solution is modern, mobile and built on a foundation of clienteling and customer engagement,” said Neil Moses, CEO of Mi9 Retail. “We are proud to be recognized as a ‘Leader’ in the IDC MarketScape team’s evaluation of the point-of-sale market.”
