Furniture and Accessories Retailer Modernizes to Prepare for Growth with Analytics, eCommerce, Enterprise Order Management, CRM, Merchandising and Point of Sale
ATLANTA, November 9, 2015 – Aptos, Inc., (formerly Epicor Retail Solutions), today announced Z Gallerie has selected the full suite of Aptos retail solutions in a full-service Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model to help the retailer streamline, optimize and integrate its omni-channel retail operations, while supporting new means of engaging with its customers.
Headquartered in Los Angeles, Z Gallerie is a fashion forward lifestyle brand focused on the home. Since 1979, the brand has inspired interior decorators and stylish influencers with cutting edge design and sophisticated, accessible furnishings. Each season, Z Gallerie offers the latest ideas in furniture, art, home decor and entertaining tailored to each individual’s personal style aesthetic. A catalog, a full online presence at zgallerie.com and stores nationwide keep the iconic Z Gallerie name in the fashion home space.
To modernize its retail technology to support future growth, Z Gallerie sought an end-to-end omni-channel retailing solution that offered strong CRM and eCommerce functionality and solid financial reporting capabilities.
The company selected Aptos, a recognized market leader in retail technology solutions with over 122,000 stores live on its platform. More than 500 retail brands across the globe rely on Aptos solutions to generate over $523 billion in annual revenues.
The Aptos solution suite will enable Z Gallerie to better understand customers’ wants, needs and buying behavior, improve in-store engagement for both customers and associates, and allow the company to expand and enrich its digital commerce footprint.
Z Gallerie will leverage the full suite of Aptos solutions including: Aptos Store (for Point of Sale), Aptos Merchandising, Planning and Resourcing, Aptos Retail Analytics and Sales Audit, Aptos CRM and Clienteling, Aptos Digital Commerce and Aptos Enterprise Order Management. All Aptos solutions will be deployed in the cloud, providing scalability, reduced risk, improved speed-to-value, and freeing up information technology resources to focus on additional projects focused on growth and innovation.
Aptos’ ability to support ‘Singular Commerce’ on an integrated platform with enterprise-wide views of inventory and orders is key to supporting today’s top business objectives of omni-channel retailing and business growth. Aptos also provides retailers with key insights on business health and performance as well as support for day-to-day decision making through analytics and financial reporting, while Aptos CRM, Point of Sale and Clienteling provide next-gen tools to support greater customer intimacy.
“Our decision to leverage Aptos in the Cloud via a SaaS model will minimize our focus on IT administration and make way for Z Gallerie to leverage technology to get the retail experience right for each and every one of our customers,” Gary Zorko, vice president of Technology and CIO, Z Gallerie. “Our decision to partner with Aptos went well beyond technology; we were impressed by the Aptos team who we found to be ‘real’, transparent, and genuine – attributes that we value and feel are essential for successful engagement.”
“Z Gallerie is a brilliant retail success story that demonstrates the power of what can be built when you combine entrepreneurism, innovation and passion,” said Noel Goggin, chief executive officer for Aptos. “Aptos is bringing an exciting new energy to the retail technology space and we are pleased to partner with Z Gallerie to help the company retool to support its next wave of growth and engage differently.”
