The Fragrance Outlet Accelerates Growth, Omni-Channel Transformation with Aptos Retail Technology in the Cloud

Aptos’ Cloud-Based Singular Commerce Platform Makes Perfect ‘Scents’ for Leading Fragrance Retailer

NRF 2017 – NEW YORK CITY, January 17, 2017 – Aptos, Inc., a recognized market leader in retail technology solutions, today announced The Fragrance Outlet, one of the nation’s largest retailers of genuine designer fragrances and related accessories, has selected the Aptos Singular Commerce™ platform in the cloud to support the retailer’s continued growth and omni-channel transformation.

An Aptos customer since 2011, The Fragrance Outlet has more than doubled its store count in recent years and launched an eCommerce website at https://www.fragranceoutlet.com/. Now with over 100 Fragrance Outlet and Designer Fragrances stores in the United States and Guam, the retailer plans to add an additional 10 to 15 locations in 2017.

To support its accelerated growth, The Fragrance Outlet has extended its partnership with Aptos and continues to leverage the following solutions: Aptos Store for point of sale, Aptos Sales Audit, Aptos CRM and Aptos Merchandising, including Aptos Allocation & Replenishment. With all Aptos solutions deployed in the cloud, The Fragrance Outlet can focus on serving its customers and running its business – not running IT.

The Fragrance Outlet has seen first-hand the value that Aptos solutions – and the cloud – can deliver. The retailer went live with Aptos Allocation & Replenishment in June 2016, already resulting in a 22 percent decrease in inventory levels and reduced warehousing costs while continuing to see positive sales growth.

“Aptos Allocation & Replenishment allowed us to forecast customer demand to identify each store’s unique selling patterns to create the ideal forecast at a SKU level,” said Matthew Ware, director of retail systems at The Fragrance Outlet. “This allowed us to lower inventory levels and increase sales and profitability, while elevating customer satisfaction.”

As The Fragrance Outlet transforms its business for omni-channel retailing, Aptos Store will allow the retailer to integrate its store operations across every channel, location and touchpoint. With Aptos CRM, The Fragrance Outlet will have a 360-degree view of each customer to create personalized interactions across channels that drive sales, enhance loyalty and nurture campaign effectiveness.

“With Aptos solutions in the cloud The Fragrance Outlet is empowering its associates to deliver the highest levels of customer service, while providing the reliability, scalability and robust functionality we need to take our business to the next level,” said Scott Kanter, CEO at The Fragrance Outlet. “We are
energized about our extended partnership with Aptos and the ability to provide seamless omnichannel experiences to our customers.”

“The Fragrance Outlet understands how to leverage the power of the cloud to engage customers differently and fuel growth,” said Noel Goggin, Aptos CEO and culture leader. “Cloud solutions are extremely agile and scalable in their ability to support new stores, channels and markets, and we look forward to supporting The Fragrance Outlet on its singular commerce journey and plans for expansion.”

With over 125,000 stores live on its Singular Commerce platform available in the cloud, more than 500 retail brands across the globe rely on cloud-ready Aptos solutions.

Aptos Reports an Impressive 85% of New Deals Include Cloud-Based Enterprise Order Management to Enable Seamless Customer Journeys

Aptos’ Singular Commerce Platform in the Cloud Continues to Drive Omni-Channel Transformation, Speed-to-Market for Leading Retailers

NRF 2017 – NEW YORK CITY, January 16, 2017 – Aptos, Inc., a recognized market leader in retail technology solutions, today announced its cloud-based Aptos Enterprise Order Management solution continues to gain adoption, with 85 percent of new Aptos customers selecting Aptos Enterprise Order Management to orchestrate complex omni-channel journeys.

As retailers rush to meet shoppers’ omni-channel expectations, they are investing in order management capabilities to provide seamless customer experiences. Aptos Enterprise Order Management functions across all in-store and digital touch points, including complete integration with Aptos Store for point of sale, for a unified view of the online/offline intersection of commerce, while consistently fulfilling customer expectations for order delivery/pick-up flexibility, options and speed.

In recent months, Aptos announced leading retailers such as Gymboree, Tilly’s, Windsor, Yankee Candle and Ron Jon Surf Shop have selected Aptos’ market-leading order management solution to create a single view of customers, inventory, orders, and more.

“Aptos is fast becoming synonymous with omni-channel retailing as we continue to expand our reach, with an ever-growing client base of the world’s most respected retailers,” said Noel Goggin, CEO and culture leader, Aptos. “With our Aptos point of sale solution now deployed in over 130,000 stores, to our Digital Commerce platform powering over 100 websites, to Aptos CRM engaging over 250 million shoppers, Aptos is focused on helping retailers deliver seamlessly integrated and differentiated experiences to its customers.”

To support retailers on their Singular CommerceTM journeys, Aptos’ cloud-based Singular Commerce platform offers 56 fully integrated omni-channel customer scenarios out-of-the box. With its end-to-end platform in the cloud empowering retailers to expedite their omni-channel transformations and speed-to-market, Aptos has seen a significant increase in the number of its customers deploying solutions in the cloud. At the end of Aptos’ Fiscal Year 2016 (September 30, 2016), 75 percent of Aptos’ solution revenue was a result of SaaS deployment, compared to 18 percent of revenue coming from SaaS deployments just two years earlier.

“The Aptos cloud-first approach has been the ‘siren song’ for retailers needing to integrate all aspects of their retail enterprises,” said Goggin. “Our cloud-first approach is the change the retail industry needed to see; it’s been the answer to increasing industry fatigue around bulky, costly and hard-to- integrate on premise software.”

“Over the past two years, the shift to the cloud in the retail sector has been dramatic as the industry looks to become more agile to respond to customers’ needs and requirements and reduce time-to-value for innovative technology initiatives,” said Jeff Roster, vice president of Retail Strategy for IHL Group. “Aptos, with its Singular Commerce platform in the cloud and Enterprise Order Management capabilities, seems well positioned to be a resource to retailers as they continue to refine their physical and digital retail strategies. Aptos’ view and positioning around Enterprise Order Management is consistent with IHL’s view that Enterprise Order Management is at the heart of a successful unified commerce strategy.”

Aptos Invites Retailers to Experience Innovation for In-Store Personalization, Omni-Channel Transformation at NRF 2017

World’s Leading Retailers Are Leveraging Aptos’ Singular Commerce Platform in the Cloud  to Support Seamless, Personalized Customer Journeys

ATLANTA, January 10, 2017 – This month more than 33,000 of the world’s retail elite will gather in New York City at the National Retail Federation’s Retail’s BIG Show, Jan. 15-17, to discuss the newest innovations in the retail sector to help retailers capture the hearts, minds and wallets of today’s discriminating consumers.

The secret to getting and keeping customers revolves around personalized, seamless experiences, says Aptos, Inc., a recognized market leader in retail technology solutions.

To support retailers on this quest, Aptos and its innovation partner, Formula 3 Group (F3G), will showcase several innovations designed to foster persistent personalization throughout the in-store experience during Retail’s BIG Show at Aptos booth #3105:

  • Personalized Digital Signs and Displays – The power of RFID, beacons and CRM come
    together to deliver highly interactive and personalized content to shoppers as they navigate the store, with each display responding to their real-time behaviors as well as their profile and their history with the brand.
  • Interactive Product Kiosks – As shoppers interact with merchandise displays, digital monitors present detailed product information in real time, including size/color options, inventory availability and promotional offers, all tailored to the items the shopper is evaluating.
  • CRM on the Apple® Watch – As a customer walks into the store, sales associates receive alerts on their wrist that tell them who walked in, their purchase history, their preferences and more, empowering associates to offer a customized experience to each shopper.

Collectively, these innovations allow retailers to deploy more persistent personalization throughout the store, whether or not shoppers are assisted by salespeople, using their smartphones or interacting with merchandise displays.

“The in-store experience holds tremendous opportunity to create emotional connections and demonstrate real-time relevance throughout the entire store interaction,” said Noel Goggin, Aptos CEO and culture leader. “We designed our NRF booth experience to showcase how Aptos’ Singular Commerce platform can enhance and personalize the customer journey, inside the store and out, allowing retailers to find new ways to engage differently and differentiate their brands.”

As noted by Goggin, Aptos’ Singular Commerce™ platform — with integrated solutions including Aptos Store for point of sale, Aptos Enterprise Order Management and Aptos CRM — will be on display throughout the booth. Aptos will also highlight its most recent advancements in Mobile POS, Clienteling, Digital Commerce and Analytics.

In addition to this technology innovation showcase, Aptos will offer various networking, philanthropic and educational opportunities to complement the action-packed Retail’s BIG Show agenda. Highlights include:

  • CIO Bar – Libations and lively discussion will flow at the CIO Bar, where some of retail’s preeminent retail technology and digital transformation leaders will be serving up a mix of big ideas and real-world insights with an omni-channel twist.
  • Exclusive Analyst Research – On Tuesday, Jan. 17, at 11 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. ET, RSR Analyst Nikki Baird will present exclusive new research focused on “Are You Ready for What the Future Has in Store…for Your Stores?” During these two sessions, Baird will guide attendees through a store readiness assessment to determine whether their stores have what it takes to survive the omni-channel era.
  • EXPO Tours – The Aptos booth is an official destination for the following BIG Show EXPO Tours: E-commerce & Omni-Channel Tour, The New Retail Customer Journey Tour and Big Data & Customer Insights Tour. For more information on the tours, please visit: http://nrfbigshow.nrf.com/tours.
  • Silent Auction for RetailROI – Aptos will host a silent auction benefiting RetailROI, a charitable group funded by companies in the retail industry, focused on helping vulnerable children worldwide. Show attendees can bid on a broad array of merchandise donated by Aptos customers and showcased in store windows throughout the booth that will be merchandised by each participating retailer.
