Aptos Celebrates One-Year Anniversary of ‘Engaging Customers Differently’

1-aptos logoRetail technology solution provider Aptos is celebrating the one-year anniversary of its spin-off from Epicor Software Corporation. During this time, the company has:

• Increased its cloud capabilities and cloud deployments;

• Increased its staff by 25%; and

• Added a significant number of new customers to its roster of leading retail brands. 


“We set out to forge a new company with a focus on ‘engaging customers differently’ by delivering a Singular Commerce platform in the cloud that supports one view of customers, experiences, inventory, orders and information,” said Noel Goggin, CEO and Culture Leader of Aptos. “ We believe engaging with our customers in a manner that is collaborative, authentic, sincere and transparent is essential to our mutual success, and we have seen powerful outcomes stemming from this approach to partnership.”

The shift in Aptos customers choosing cloud over traditional on-premises deployments has been significant. Overall, the company experienced a year-over-year increase of 283% in sales of its cloud-ready solutions between 2014 and 2015, with 80% of customers to date in 2016 opting for cloud deployments. 

With more than 122,000 stores live on its cloud-based platform, more than 500 retail brands across the globe rely on cloud-ready Aptos solutions to generate more than $523 billion in annual revenues.

An Agent for Positive Change

Aptos continues to be committed to being an agent of positive change in local communities and in impoverished regions around the globe through its partnership with the Retail Orphan Initiative (RetailROI). Aptos’ involvement has included financial support, material resources, business leadership training and hands-on volunteering to support RetailROI’s mission of providing real solutions for vulnerable children worldwide. In May 2016, in partnership with RetailROI, Aptos announced its multiyear commitment to improving the lives of vulnerable children in Haiti. 

Further International Expansion Planned

Over the next year, Aptos will increasingly support retailers in their international expansion efforts to fuel growth. Today the company offers out-of-the-box support for 27 countries and 16 languages, and Aptos will support 40 countries by the end of the year. 

“Our focus will be on global execution across our core products, and the continued execution of cloud across the Aptos retail suite,” said Goggin. “We want to make it easier for our customers to expand to new regions by overcoming the currency, customs, taxation and other challenges that must be addressed to capitalize on new, and often lucrative, revenue opportunities.”
