Aptos Recognized as No. 2 Worldwide Leader in Order Management for General Retail

Global research and advisory firm IHL Group shines a spotlight on Aptos’ tier-1 ready OMS and POS solutions, market leadership in unified commerce

ATLANTA — June 24, 2019 — Aptos, Inc., a recognized market leader in retail technology solutions, today announced its inclusion in an independent study of the order management market by IHL Group, a global research and advisory firm specializing in technologies for the retail and hospitality industries.

The report, “Enterprise Order Management — The Foundation of Unified Commerce,” reviews the trends and barriers around reaching the goal of a single order management system (OMS), the process of removing silos, and the goal of using stores as a competitive advantage. The study examines the leading vendors in the OMS space, the size of the market and the differentiators of each vendor across key criteria, including software architecture, global reach and speed of installation.

Based on IHL’s in-depth analysis, Aptos was recognized as the second-leading OMS vendor worldwide in general retail by revenue. Aptos was ranked No. 4 worldwide in OMS revenue across all segments and geographies, and was listed as a leading commerce provider for general retail across OMS, POS/mPOS and e-commerce solutions.

“Based on our review of the unified commerce landscape, Aptos has one of the most complete unified commerce technology stacks servicing the specialty enterprise space,” said Jerry Sheldon, vice president of technology at IHL. “Aptos’ strong OMS product anchors its comprehensive suite of solutions for all core retail functions.
