NPOS Corp & Microsoft Store initiative sees Microsoft consumer and B2B Retail products sold side

02-Jul-2015

A great initiative by NPOS Corporation and the Microsoft Store in the Aventura Mall, Florida brings Microsoft consumer products and the tech giant’s latest B2B offering for Retail together under one roof.

A stroke of genius has made familiar Microsoft consumer products (like the Microsoft Surface – the tablet with a cover that doubles as a keyboard, - Xbox, Windows Phones, Windows 8 PCs, Microsoft Office software, accessories etc…) and Microsoft’s latest B2B offering for the retail sector, “Retail Realm Essentials® powered by Microsoft Dynamics” accessible under the same roof; at the Microsoft Store in the upscale Aventura Mall in the city of Aventura, Florida.

After gaining certified “Retail Realm Essentials®” Reseller status earlier this year (upon successful completion of the Retail Realm run training course and exams in Fort Lauderdale), Jose Serna and his wife Diane (who jointly run NPOS Corporation out of North Miami Beach) sat down to a brainstorming session with the goal of coming up with novel approaches to marketing the new addition to their business. (NPOS Corp has been involved in supplying Retail Point Of Sale software since 1991). It wasn’t long before the enterprising duo, already Resellers of Microsoft Dynamics RMS, hit upon the idea of approaching the Manager of the Microsoft Store in the Aventura Mall. “It made perfect sense to take the solution direct to the Retailer … in a Mall which houses 300+ stores”, Diane Serna explained, “and even more sense to bring greater visibility to the Retail business segment that Microsoft has so successfully catered to over the years.” Here Jose chipped in describing how the Microsoft Store layout lent itself well to their idea of providing demos of and showcasing “Retail Realm Essentials®” in an environment where you “see and breathe” Microsoft given that there is a well-defined conference/meeting area with seating and a screen (which would ordinarily be used for new consumer product launches, tutorials etc. from Microsoft). “And it doesn’t end there”, Jose added, “The Aventura Mall is well known as a destination for business owners from the Miami area and further afield, including tourists and business visitors from abroad. In fact, we recently conducted a Retail Realm Essentials demo for clients from the Bahamas.”

“Retail Realm Essentials® powered by Microsoft Dynamics” is a retail management solution based on the powerful Microsoft Dynamics AX platform. It boasts an entirely retail-centric configuration providing all the functionality required to run retail operations with those aspects of AX which are not required by retailers “switched off”. It is, however, scalable to embrace the needs of any expanding retail business; and has the option to eventually activate the full Microsoft Dynamics AX capabilities once an organization’s expansion and development requires it. Retail Realm Essentials® is suitable for deployment in a number of retail verticals and Jose and Diane Serna will be happy to supply further information and demo the system.

Last but by no means least, Retailers visiting NPOS Corp at the Microsoft Store in the Aventura Mall may well attract discounts on other Microsoft products they need for their businesses.
