Our Story Veras Retail was founded as Zoftec, LLC by Rohit Vir in 2008. From his prior experience, Rohit was struck by how retail IT teams were often overwhelmed by the pace of requirements coming from their business – as well as the untapped potential for using technology in ways that retailers had not yet considered. He started Zoftec with the dream of building unique and transformative software solutions for retailers.
Zoftec grew steadily, focused initially on customizations and integrations to existing software packages, but growing to build new solutions that streamlined business processes around promotional pricing and taxation, as well as launching a new product line for optimizing direct-to-consumer order fulfillment and inventory location management.
With the acquisition of the JDA Store Systems products and simultaneous rebranding as Veras Retail, we have completed our transformation from a boutique consulting and system integration services provider to a leading provider of holistic in-store software solutions.
Our philosophy is as simple as our tagline – “it starts at the store”. We strive to use technology to create in-store interactions between customers and retailers that are engaging, fun, profitable, and repeatable. While there is no doubting the impact of omnichannel shopping on today’s consumers, we continue to feel that a consumer’s relationship with a retailer (and thus their long-term impact to the retailer’s bottom line) is primarily forged in the in-store interactions with the products, the store staff, and the store’s physical environment.
