Microsoft today announced the latest release of Microsoft Dynamics for Retail with new capabilities designed to help retailers deliver a complete shopping experience through end-to-end, search-based e-commerce; next-generation point of sale (POS); and an omnichannel commerce engine.
Microsoft Dynamics for Retail offers retailers an end-to-end e-commerce solution, based on search technology, with a fully integrated Web storefront, complete catalog and real-time order management.
In addition, custom content, product details and critical customer insight can be pulled from any channel to the fully configurable, touch-optimized Microsoft Dynamics Point of Sale. Windows Phone 8 and tablet devices also support POS, helping retailers better engage with their customers.
Microsoft Dynamics for Retail also offers an omnichannel commerce engine to manage all of a retailer's channels. This means creating a promotion, discount or other strategic initiative just one time and having it light up every relevant customer touch point.
