Boston – April 21, 2015 – Springboard Retail, a Cloud POS and retail management platform to help retailers sell more, and sell smarter, today announced that XCVI, a casual chic lifestyle brand, chose Springboard Retail to accelerate sales, profits and customer engagement as they continue to expand stores throughout the Western U.S
When XCVI launched its pop-up shop project in 2012, executives searched for an easy-to-use but powerful POS solution. They didn’t want to have to pack, unpack and travel with a cumbersome legacy POS as they managed the mobile store. They initially chose Square, which was good for processing payments but little else. After a few months they moved to ShopKeep, which allowed them to better track inventory. However, as the project grew, and XCVI opened several more shops, they found they needed deeper functionality and outgrew ShopKeep – which also lacked a central control, requiring them to manage inventory, customers and transactions at each store separately. They sought a powerful, feature-rich Cloud POS system that supported inventory management across multiple stores and provided robust end-to-end functionality. Executives chose Springboard Retail and have been very pleased by not only its deep functionality but also its ease of use. According to XCVI, Springboard Retail’s impact on their business has been “profound.”
“We initially trialed Springboard Retail in just one store in August of 2014 but recently expanded it to all six of our stores because of its strong capabilities to meet our needs,” said Daniela Zeltzer, Marketing Director, XCVI. “Springboard Retail provides us with greater inventory control and data that we can rely on to make smarter business decisions. Its impact has been profound, giving us the ability to track merchandise from corporate to stores, manage changes in real time and simply be more productive in all aspects.”
XCVI runs six stores throughout California and Arizona, in which they utilize Springboard Retail’s mobile POS, custom dashboards and robust reporting - making real time actionable data available on store performance, customers and inventory. Springboard Retail gives corporate headquarters better insight and more control, and also allows store associates to make more intelligent product recommendations for customers on the sales floor – increasing profitability and customer satisfaction.
“We’re particularly thrilled that we could meet XCVI’s needs for a robust POS solution where others could not,” said Gordon Russell, Springboard Retail CEO. “Our powerful yet easy-to-use platform keeps both management and store associates informed, more productive and successful. Springboard Retail looks forward to continuing to partner with XCVI as they continue to expand.”
