Why move to V16?

Along with all the pre-existing benefits of the Oracle suite, the new version comes with enhanced features such as smart cash management, rolling close concept applied to cash registers, faster real time promotions with real time promotional cache refresh, Xstore punch out, which is a framework to support third party mobile applications linking it to the stores etc. to enhance the business.

Migrate faster with the right integration solution

Implementing a POS system is a very business critical application. Not only does it cause downtime but also the transformation of huge amount of existing data to be suitable for the new system. The challenging part is to mitigate risk, ensure less downtime and better return on investment while migrating to the new POS. A predefined, flexible accelerator will get your business up and running fast with reduced implementation risk, defined outcome and lower overall total cost of implementation.

The right integration solution provides the following:

Configure: Customize and configure the POS solution in time and according to business needs.

Integrate: Provides seamless integration with your other business modules.

Migrate: Migrate all existing data in the older system to the new one.

Test: Provides automated testing for lesser human error and lesser time for successful implementation.

Introducing X-integrator

Aspire’s integration solution “X-integrator” bridges the gap between the older Oracle MOM module and the latest xStore POS system. This is a scalable, tailored solution based on the Oracle unified methodology that is best suited for the retail business. This integration solution plays a major role in different aspects of the implementation. It’s a pre-built solution that works with your existing mPOS suite and the new Oracle V16 suite with reduced overall implementation time (development & testing). The X-integrator is built on the existing architecture of Oracle solutions to make the post production support simple.
