Today at the NRF
(National Retail Federation) 102nd Annual Convention & EXPO,
America, Inc., a leading supplier of value-added Point of Service
(POS) solutions, and Livelenz
Inc., a provider of real-time, operational and consumer analytics
for the retail and hospitality segments, announced the availability of
its cloud-based data analytics suite on Epson's OmniLink™ smart
solutions family. OmniLink combines an Epson industry-leading POS
printer with PC functionality to deliver cloud-based services, open
platform mobility and flexible web-based printing from any mobile
device. Paired with Epson's OmniLink, Livelenz is the first POS
independent solution to bring real-time data analytics, sales and
consumer data, labor and inventory cost management and loss prevention
to the hospitality and retail segments - without any upgrades or
integration to existing POS systems.
Epson's OmniLink solutions provide the data gateway that enables
delivery of cloud-based services via Ethernet or WiFi connectivity.
Since the Livelenz application resides on the OmniLink printer outside
the POS system, retailers gain the benefits of rapid deployment. The
Livelenz platform gives retailers instant access to trending,
performance results, gap analysis and predictive modeling to drive sales
lift, reduce and manage cost of goods/inventory while minimizing
"We've been up and running at several Moe's Southwest Grill locations
for more than a year now," commented Joel Doherty, CEO at Livelenz.
"With our platform in place, Moe's has realized measurable financial
returns through operational improvements, upsell opportunities and labor
cost reductions. With Eson's OmniLink, retailers gain all the features
and functionality of real-time data analytics - without updating their
current POS systems. Even the oldest legacy systems are supported, and
getting started is fast, easy and cost effective."
"We've been working with Livelenz for a couple of years," commented
Gregg Brunnick, Director of Marketing for Epson's Business Systems
Division. "Our efforts have resulted in retailers gaining access to a
new data gateway for comprehensive web-based data analytics, and we've
seen the results. This solution can truly transform a business."
The Livelenz solution with OmniLink has been deployed throughout notable
tier-one hospitality brands. The solution will be available in the first
quarter of 2013 through the Livelenz designated sales team (888)
407-0501 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
