Veras Retail to Acquire and Extend JDA Point-of-Sale Solutions
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–JDA Software Group, Inc., and Zoftec LLC, DBA Veras Retail™, a long-time JDA alliance partner, announced that Veras has purchased JDA® Store™ Point of Sale, JDA® Win/DSS™ Point-of-Sale and JDA® CRM™ solutions. Veras Retail will expand its products and services offerings in this area to help retailers maximize profitability and provide a meaningful shopping experience to consumers. JDA brings numerous integrated Store Operations products across workforce management and advanced tasking/intelligent store logistics to the market and will continue to innovate across these solutions, while working with Veras to ensure POS customers are supported moving forward.
The newly acquired JDA solutions will form the foundation for a new suite of applications from Veras. CheckOut, Stock, Extend, and Control will be an enterprise-connected suite of tools for processing point-of-sale transactions (including mobile POS capability on iOS devices), validating returns, managing cross-channel orders, and tracking inventory. Veras Reach will provide retail-focused CRM capabilities including loyalty and targeted marketing based on omni-channel customer purchase history. JDA® Win/DSS continues to be supported, but will not be rebranded or offered to new customers. These products are immediately available from and supported by Veras, assuring uninterrupted service and business continuity for JDA customers.
Based in Phoenix, Arizona and serving JDA customers since 2008, the Veras staff has assembled approximately 200 man-years of experience with JDA software products. Many Veras employees worked for extended periods of time at JDA or have been JDA customers in the past.
“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to expand the heritage of JDA’s proven POS solutions,” said Rohit Vir, founder and CEO of Veras. “We look forward to serving the retailers who depend on these solutions to run their businesses across over 100,000 lanes worldwide, as well as building exciting new capabilities to help retailers connect with their customers.”
“This change is a win-win for our customers,” said Tyler Owen, senior director, solution strategy, JDA. “On one hand we have a long-term partner dedicated to advancing point-of-sale capabilities, while on the other hand, JDA continues advancing its Store Operations solutions in the areas of workforce management, category management, intelligent store logistics and back office operations.”
Veras will continue to provide the same high level of technology innovation, customer service and support customers have come to expect from JDA. Veras will also continue to honor JDA’s Investment Protection policy, allowing existing maintenance-paying customers to upgrade from Win/DSS without having to re-license the product. Veras is a sponsor and exhibitor at JDA FOCUS 2016 this week in Nashville, Tennessee. Customers with questions attending FOCUS can stop by their booth for further information.
