Abenson and its Affiliate Brands Select Veras Retail’s Enterprise-Class, Unified POS Platform
August 18, 2021 – PHOENIX – Veras Retail, a leading global provider of omnichannel technology to deliver enhanced retail experiences, today announced that Abenson will modernize its retail operations with Veras CheckOut omnichannel point-of-sale and Veras Activate for centralized promotions management. Additionally, its affiliate brands with varying retail formats—including Abenson Electroworld and Abenson Home—will also deploy Veras CheckOut in a single, cohesive environment.
The Veras BIR-accredited point-of-sale solution will automate compliance requirements, add omnichannel flexibility, and enable new digital and in-store strategies across more than 500 points of sale across these varied retail chains nationwide. Streamlining several special tax considerations and promotional calculations, Veras CheckOut will dramatically simplify and speed transactions to deliver a superior checkout experience.
“Through Abenson’s experiential flagship store, safe and secure access to carefully selected products, and a highly trained staff delivering the best customer service—our success stems from our vision to deliver a new level of retail experience,” said Mr. Winston Lim, Managing Director of Abenson. “With Veras’ platform, we’ll continue to expand on that with enhanced online and offline shopping experiences that are consistent, personalized, and customer-driven.”
From specialty retail to department stores to grocery, Veras CheckOut’s unmatched flexibility on a single, unified platform delivers:
• Seamless omnichannel and cross-store selling
• PCI out-of-scope payment integrations
• Hardware agnostic and mobile-ready integrations
• Flexible on-premise, cloud or hybrid deployments
• Add-on modules for endless aisle, self-checkout, clienteling, remote selling, and more
Veras’ omnichannel platform will provide Abenson and the affiliate brands with a suite of cross-channel and cross-store selling capabilities, including Veras Activate. With endless discount options available out-of-the-box, Activate’s advanced promotional tools enable central office staff to manage complex promotions accurately and consistently across stores, mobile, and ecommerce. Furthermore, the built-in price simulator module replicates and monitors price events before go-live to avoid any unintended discounts, and ensures shoppers get the expected result at the point of sale, every time.
“Abenson is bringing a world-class retail experience to the emerging Philippine market where a great deal of transformation is taking place,” said Rohit Vir, CEO of Veras Retail. “We’re honored to be selected by the Abenson family of brands as their strategic partner.
