Pursuit confirms launch date for free software

EPoS software specialist Pursuit will host an online launch of its new software offer on 29 July. The business has confirmed that some facets of its new software will be offered to 300 independent retailers for free on a first-come-first-served basis. It is understood that there are no conditions or time restrictions associated with this offer. Suppliers are also expected to be offered three-months of access to the new cloud-based software and associated app for free. The move towards an online launch comes after various elements of the patented software solution, now understood to be called ‘Sonic’, were disclosed to the trade ahead of time. Pursuit managing director, Mike Burns, said: “Sonic has been in the works for close to three years. It is an innovative new EPoS software concept that will redefine the working relationship between retailers and suppliers, giving both access to a cloud-based system that is designed to encourage more streamlined buying and stock control. “We had intended to keep the software secret a little while longer, but the number of enquiries we have received and the recent impact on the retail sector has encouraged us to move the launch forward. Some elements of the new software will be offered to independent retailers for free, while others will be based on a monthly subscription model. We know there will be a lot of questions around how we can offer this, which is why we hope to see as many interested businesses participate in our webinar as possible.” Independent retailers, suppliers and existing Pursuit customers are now being encouraged to log-in to the online launch webinar to find out how Sonic can support their businesses. During the online launch, Burns will outline the positives of the system while explaining how stakeholders can reduce their monthly subscription fees, increase efficiency and streamline online admin. Burns continued: “We couldn’t have predicted the state of the world back when we started developing Sonic. That being said, our new functionality will be especially useful to maintain successful retailer-brand relationships in the digital space. We don’t expect businesses to just take our word for it either, which is why we’re offering suppliers three-months of free access to Sonic on a first-come-first-served basis so they can see if it works for them.” For more details on the online launch, keep checking the Retail Jeweller website.
