SaaS, Cloud, Mobile Commerce Solution integrates with existing Retail POS
Alpha Bay, LLC announced today that it has launched its Enterprise Class Point of Sale product “AIRS”™ (Adaptive Integrated Retail Solution) with enhanced mobile and cloud capabilities. AIRS™ solution offers performance, scalability, manageability and accessibility to any retailer rather than a product suite with legacy point solutions loosely integrated. AIRS provides a true enterprise services architecture (ESA) offering distributed, multi-tier design developed in Java, supporting both large, mainframe-class, multiprocessor Linux based servers and scalable databases. This architecture provides a rich, Web Services client experience for everything from complex data analysis and planning or vendor and distributor collaboration, to lightweight, graphic, easy-to-use, point-of-sale terminals, mobile devices and direct consumer web stores. Michael Kelly, President of Alpha Bay stated,
AIRS™ is a comprehensive, state-of-the-art retail system solution that will support Enterprise Class Retailers growth and increase profits. AIRS™ will replace or integrate with existing technology, including but not limited to POS, Merchandising, Store Inventory Management, Business Intelligence, Database, Data Warehouse and more. AIRS™ provides a full-service turn-key Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution. The AIRS retail system reduces IT and inventory costs while introducing new features and benefits to both customers and employees while increasing profits. The solution includes Merchandising, Inventory Management, Loss Prevention, Accounting, HR, Payroll, Business Intelligence, POS, Store Operations, and Item Management. AIRS™ simplifies the creation and integration of retail business applications using a service-oriented architecture (SOA). This makes it easy to integrate with the extended functions of any business enterprise system (CRM, ERP, HR, etc.). The full SOA implementation exposes business logic as discreet web services, providing well-defined accessible application interfaces. AIRS™ is fully ARTS compliant, fully SOA compliant, and is designed with the SaaS model in mind.”
Alpha Bay’s technology includes:
An integrated business intelligence (BI) engine providing a real-time analysis of a retailer’s complete business, including a portal-based dashboard, and all without programming SQL statements.
A true DDSC architecture which allows inventory management to be real-time, driven by consumer sales rather than annual or quarterly forecasting, thus reducing or even eliminating costly OOS, and freeing up massive capital currently tied up in overstocking inventory.
AIRS is a flexible, scalable, customizable solution and can be installed and configured to support the unique needs of a Fortune 100, worldwide retail chain, while at the same time supporting the requirements of individual retail stores through SaaS.
Alpha Bay intends to leverage extensive technology and introduce a complete suite of mobile, cloud-based multi-tenant solutions to support emerging entrepreneurs, small and medium size businesses later this year.
