Brightpearl assists small-to-medium sized retailers handle the scale and complexity of growing a multi-channel business, by bringing together orders, inventory, customer data, accounting and reporting in one place.
Today’s launch has seen Brightpearl work with independent app developers to provide retailers with management system they need for their unique businesses which are available to Brightpearl customers through their account.
Henry Morland, head of product at Brightpearl, said: “We’re delighted to introduce the Brightpearl App Store today. Our job is to give retailers the tools they need to successfully manage and grow their businesses. The introduction of the App Store allows developers to create apps which extend Brightpearl’s core capabilities and to promote them to the entire Brightpearl community. The range of apps on offer is growing fast. As a retailer that means you can pick and choose the apps you need to make Brightpearl map perfectly onto the way you want to do business.”
Brightpearl App Store user Graham Harrison, operations director at Audio Visual Commodity, commented: “Through the Brightpearl App Store I am now talking to a company in New Zealand about forecasting, a business in Germany about reporting and a French team about our pricing. It’s invaluable for an SME of our size that we can have access to the best partners worldwide.”
