CitiXsys has unveiled the iVend Optical Retail platform, a solution designed to enable optical retailers to efficiently operate a business that provides vision prescriptions, fashion frames, prescription lenses, contacts and plano (non-prescription) sunglasses.
With iVend Optical Retail, retailers can:
Enable tracking of both prescription and non-prescription sales;
Manage technical data related to frames, lenses and contact lenses and link them to prescriptions;
Aid with stocking the right style, color and size assortments;
Track sales and trends to optimize inventory with analytics capabilities; and
Include interoperable APIs to allow additional integrations and ability to scale.
Additionally, retailers can use the platform to focus on customer service to differentiate themselves from growing online and discount department store competition.
iVend Optical Retail includes seven integrated software modules: iVend Enterprise, iVend POS, iVend Mobile POS, iVend eCommerce, iVendLoyalty, iVend Passes, and iVend Reporting and Analytics. The application integrates in-store retail with back office processes and an online storefront. Its data synchronization feature permits up-to-date reports including lab orders, stock status, sales, delivery and open orders.
