All we had to do was purchase the software and several licenses and see how we liked it. We could do the implementation ourselves, at our pace. Overall, xTuple gave us alternatives that no other vendor could.
DFW-based Pleiades Solutions Launches Mobile Retail App for iPhone® and iPod Touch®
Iconic™ System Unleashes Retail POS Process with App Store’s First Cloud-based Database with Cross-Platform Back Office Client
IRVING, TX – May 23, 2013 – Pleiades Solutions, LLC, the Dallas-Fort Worth-based software development company, announces the general availability of the Iconic™ Mobile Retail System — the first mobile retail system that links an Apple® iPhone® or iPod Touch® with a fully-integrated, cross-platform back office solution and cloud-based backend database. The Iconic™ app is now available for free download in the Apple App Store, while the backend retail system is available for trial use or for license through Iconic™ for Retail.
The Iconic™ mobile point-of-sale (POS) system is powered by PostBooks by xTuple®, the global leader in open source enterprise resource planning (ERP) software. The Iconic™ system was developed for Pleiades Solutions, LLC, by Irving-based Software Company and xTuple Gold Level and Elite Partner, Paladin Logic, Limited.
"We congratulate our friends at Pleiades Solutions on this fantastic app," said xTuple CEO Ned Lilly. "Iconic™ combines the power and flexibility of xTuple PostBooks with the elegance and ease of use for which Apple and the iPhone are known worldwide."
Dr. Will Bralick, President of Paladin Logic, noted, "Future releases of Iconic will be guided by the demands of the Iconic and iPhone user communities. Iconic's flexible, database-driven design makes creating new capabilities relatively simple."
Pleiades Solutions, LLC, recognized the potential for the Iconic™ application to fill a growing market need — combining the efficiency, flexibility and customer service of a mobile retail app with a complete back-end retail system. With Iconic™ there is no need to manage data backups or synchronize sales history with a separate inventory database or use external accounting software.
The Iconic™ mobile app allows retailers to connect easily and securely with their company's Iconic database. Iconic integrates the mobile device with the Linea Pro or Honeywell Captuvo scanners, allowing completely mobile barcode scanning, credit card and gift card processing, and more. All sales made with the mobile device are immediately available to the Mac-, Linux-, or Windows-based back office client providing retailers immediate access to their up-to-the-minute enterprise data stored securely and maintained effortlessly in the Amazon Cloud. Because it is powered by xTuple PostBooks, Iconic™ provides all the data a retailer needs to increase sales and profits: inventory, sales and accounting, customer information — including sales history — all synchronized across the entire business management software system.
