SkillNet’s rapid Oracle Xstore POS implementation program enabled the store pilot in just a few months.
About the D2C retailer
The client is an online specialty retailer that sells clothing and outdoor recreation gear for hiking, camping, road biking, mountain biking, rock climbing, winter sports, fly fishing, kayaking, rafting, road and trail running, and more. Since 1996, the DTC retailer has been connecting people to their passions by offering the best selection of outdoor products, backed by knowledgeable, responsive customer service and rapid fulfillment.
After focusing on its online presence for over two decades, the client decided to continue their retail journey by opening three brick-and-mortar stores. This was to be followed by a more rapid expansion across the US.
Given their focus on customer service online, the client wanted to enable their store associates with more information & capabilities so that shoppers would continue to receive the same in-store experience. They were looking to replace their homegrown POS solution with a more modern one without any integration challenges. Additionally, they were looking at managed hosted services, as well as ongoing infrastructure and application-level support (Level 2 and Level 3).
They partnered with SkillNet, a leader in-store solutions, for Oracle Xstore POS implementation.
