- This new capability extends the reach of Openbravo for Retail with smaller devices facilitating retailers to go completely mobile, with an even more agile and cost effective solution -
Barcelona (Spain), June 11th, 2013 - Openbravo, the leading web-based open source business management solutions provider, today announced a new compelling capability for its Openbravo for Retail solution. Openbravo’s multi-channel and web native retail management solution with integrated POS can now also be used on mobile devices like tablets and smartphones. With this new capability Openbravo reaffirms its vision to offer a best-in-class retail solution for the business challenges that retailers around the globe are facing today, enabling them to adapt quickly in order to address the constantly changing market needs more effectively.
Leveraging the Openbravo Mobile Platform and thanks to the responsive design concept, Openbravo POS layout now adapts itself automatically depending on the device resolution. In the most common scenario, POS will display a two-column layout. In small screen devices like smartphones (or others, as long as the device has Internet access and a browser), POS automatically switches to a one-column layout. This compelling solution completes the range of mobile devices, complementing the traditional usage of desktops and laptops, resulting in a perfect solution for retailers seeking an agile and cost effective business management application to be able to go mobile.
Almost one year after the launch of its renewed retail solution, Openbravo’s retail software revenues have increased by 125% since 2012.
