OneStore is the "coming soon" news: the retail software which automatically integrates with your hardware, growing your business and taking you towards the future.
The software is still being tested by an important brand belonging to Fashion and Retail in Milan, but OneStore will be available on the market soon: it took 3 years to develop and realize a super-software born from the real needs of retailers, analyzed by Custom Group in these 25 years of work on the field.
OneStore "will be multichannel, multilingual, multidevice (it will work on smartphones, PCS, cash registers)" - as Stradi told. "It will be fully customizable, easy to use (no computer technicians required) and will not require continuous investments of resources in maintenance, updating and security, because it will be hosted on the cloud".
"One Store is the realization of a dream, the dream of the retailers we've spoken with over the years, who told us what they really need for their business. It will represent the Retail 4.0 philosophy, which we arrived at after ten years of experience in the world of fashion, luxury goods and catering. Its user-friendly configuration is the natural expression of our philosophy, which enabled us to achieve our leading position by exploiting the synergies between our various businesses and mixing them together in a simple way".
