Provides an Authorized Payment Foundation to simplify and consolidate payment authorisation
Oracle introduced new version of Oracle Retail Point-of-Service that would help retailers increase operational efficiency, enhance the customer experience and simplify the payment process across global markets.
With the latest version of Oracle Retail Point-of-Service, retailers are offered with greater international functionality and security by providing a common and open interface that can be localised for different markets, providing integration for multiple international payment partners and using tokenisation to further secure customer card data.
Oracle Retail Point-of-Service also simplifies deployments through expanded integrations with Oracle and third-party offerings and it provides an Authorized Payment Foundation to simplify and consolidate payment authorisation.
The Authorized Payment Foundation is a secure and flexible application programming interface that isolates the authorisation process from the Point-of-Service and enables integration with payment processing solutions from industry leaders such as ACI Worldwide and Servebase.
With the integrated biometrics from DigitalPersona, the latest release of Oracle Retail Point-of-Service simplifies and strengthens compliance with PCI security standards by allowing operators to login using their fingerprint.
Oracle Retail Point-of-Service now includes image-based quick reference screens that allow a cashier to quickly view pictures or icons to easily add an item to the transaction and to further improve checkout.
The new version extends integration with Oracle Retail Price Management to improve the configurability of threshold-based promotions.
In addition, Oracle Retail Point-of-Service also now enables store managers to preview point-of-service reports at anytime, without sending the entire report to print and also delivers user interface improvements such as more visible status and transaction totals and highlights where input is needed from the store associate.
Oracle Retail senior vice-president and general manager Mike Webster said globalisation is one of the primary sources of growth for retailers, and Oracle Retail Point-of-Service is focused on helping retailers swiflty serve new markets while localising offerings and providing a key component for cross-channel retailing.
"This release of Oracle Retail Stores demonstrates our ongoing commitment to lead the industry in meeting the needs of retailers now and in the future," said Webster.
