Intermix and Shopatron team on order management solution
San Luis Obispo, Calif. — Shopatron said Wednesday that women’s specialty retailer Intermix is using Shopatron’s order management solution to integrate its retail locations into the company’s e-commerce sales strategy.
Using Shopatron’s distributed order management system, Intermix can now fulfill online orders with available inventory from either a distribution center or a retail store.
Upon receiving a web order, Intermix assigns the orders to a location based on available inventory, proximity to the consumer, and other inventory turn logic. Sourcing the order closer to the customer optimizes the shipment for both the company and the customer, providing shorter shipping times.
"We chose Shopatron as our e-commerce solution because it easily integrated with our online store and helped us streamline order processing," said Jeremy Levine, Intermix’s VP of e-commerce. "With Shopatron’s in-store interface, our sales associates are led step-by-step through the process of picking, packing and sending out an online order, making them more efficient and accurate. It also allows customers to choose the most convenient method for returning items; they can walk into any of our stores or ship it back to our distribution center."
Shopatron’s full-service order management solution, called Shopatron Retailer, also provides Intermix with payment processing, consumer support, complete fraud protection and management of returns.

Casio enhances POS offering
DOVER, N.J. — Casio America has joined with Registroid LLC — an independent software vendor located in Mobile, Alabama — to offer a comprehensive retail point of sale system called the Registroid Cloud to its Android VX-100 all in one POS unit.
"Teaming up with Registroid allows us to expand our reach within the retail industry and offers users a feature-rich point of sale solution that will stimulate business growth," said Larry Sampey, general manager of Casio’s system products division. "The addition of the Registroid Cloud system to Casio’s VX-100 provides another level of speed, flexibility and ease of use for thousands of different users."
Casio’s VX-100, the first Android-based open platform POS product in the industry, now provides a general retail system with the Registroid Cloud based software to enhance productivity for a variety of businesses including food trucks, bakeries, coffee shops and counter service restaurants. Registroid can control multiple VX-100 units by synchronizing data to their secure cloud database, and since the Android cash register is a native app, running locally, the data updates are instantaneous for fast-paced business transactions, whether on-line or off-line. The system also includes a complete back office, which can be accessed from any Internet browser. The back office includes comprehensive data maintenance, reporting and charts, and being cloud based, eliminates software installations, updates and backups, while maintaining secure communication from the Android operating systems to cloud storage.
