Retail Pro ranked #1 POS

November 28th, 2019 Posted by News & Events 0 thoughts on “Retail Pro ranked #1 POS”

We are honored to announce that the cross-platform, cross-channel POS and retail management software Retail Pro® was ranked number 1 retail mid-market POS in market share, global reach, innovation, and growth in the latest Retail Executive Advisory Program Research Study from IHL Group.

The study evaluated retail technology providers from all over the world based on relative strength, growth, direction, resilience, and market share.

“Over the years we’ve amassed a tremendous amount of primary and secondary-source data in this pursuit to assist retailers in vendor selection and to help understand the trends transforming our industry,” said Jerry Sheldon, Vice President of the IHL Group.  “The study considers primary and secondary source data to evaluate and rank on-premise and SaaS POS for retailers with chains ranging from 1 to 100 locations – representing over 9 million POS locations installed POS units worldwide.”

In this hyper-competitive context, Retail Pro holds 5.9% market share in the midmarket slice for general retail and also ranks as a top performer in IHL’s positioning map which measures vendors by innovation and market strength dimensions.

“We thrive in the highly creative and demanding environments in all major markets worldwide. Striving together with our loyal customers drives us to keep honing our technology to be more efficient, more innovative, and more adaptable to the diverse retail brands using Retail Pro worldwide.”


Kerry Lemos, CEO, Retail Pro International

As retail in emerging markets continues to expand and enterprise retailers are rearchitecting systems for unified commerce, IHL projects the POS software market will grow 53% from $3.2 billion in 2018 to $4.9 billion in 2023, implying further growth opportunity for top POS providers.

“In spite of economic condition setbacks in some markets, retail continues to advance in North America, EMEA and APAC. This presents our retail technology solution providers with an opportunity to move forward and prosper in the era of intentional innovation. These companies, ranked above all others in our study, represent a cohort of movers who push and help organizations drive growth. We congratulate the top-performers who move our industry forward.”


Greg Buzek, IHL

We are humbled at the significance of being ranked top POS at a global scale, and it is not by our efforts alone that this achievement was earned. Thus, we would like to recognize the people who work so hard every day, everywhere in the world, who are the hands, feet, minds, and retailers behind this triumph.

Our brilliant retailers who are always optimizing for more beauty and efficiency in retail experiences – and are using Retail Pro to do it.

Our forward-thinking designers, architects, engineers, and developers who create and support Retail Pro, and our dedicated team of business staff who keep the company on an upward trajectory.

Our skilled Business Partners who labor day and night to serve the 9000 retailers worldwide entrusting their operations to Retail Pro.

Our innovative Strategic and Development Partners who augment Retail Pro with the plugins and integrations they create.

All striving together for opportunities to push beyond what we thought we could do yesterday. All uniting to make retail what it is today.

THANK YOU.

Retail Pro International along with a number of its Business Partners participated in Seamless Retail Middleast 2018 in April, 2018. The 2-day event attracted a large audience of serious retailers from across the Middle East, Africa and South Asian regions.

The event was followed by an exclusive Retail Pro partner meet at RPI office in Dubai. Partners of the region discussed their business plans with Alexandra Frith, Director Marketing and Bevin Manian, VP Middle East & Europe, Retail Pro.

The meet was attended by our CEO, Arsalan Ijaz Anwer and our Head of Sales, Ahmar Taufique. They stressed the need for special pricing and better discounts for the Pakistani market. Retail is a growing market in Pakistan and all retailers struggle with inventory and POS issues as they grow. A few successful case studies of Retail Pro implementations in Pakistan were discussed and showcased.

In closing, Retail Pro appreciated the fact that CSP had won strategic key accounts like Chase Up Shopping City, Chen One and DVAGO in as little as 4 months of its partnership. Although young in its RP partnership, the 2 decades of retail experience that CSP brings to the table is of value to RPI.

“We see CSP as a valuable partner in the Pakistani market. Your efforts in providing Retail Pro as a viable solution to Pakistan’s retailers are highly commendable – and are recognized by RPI” said Mr Bevin Manian, VP Retail Pro while speaking at the event.

“This is what you get when you’ve been hands-on… it shows the effort and dedication of this team towards Retail Pro and its customers”, remarked Ket Venethongkham, Director Retail Pro University while giving our certificates to the team.

It is pertinent to mention here that CSP is one of the only few partners in the region and the ONLY partner in Pakistan to have hands-on implementation experience on the latest version – Retail Pro Prism. At the time of this certification exam, the team had had no prior formal training on this version and yet had successfully implemented some of the most complex and demanding projects in Pakistan such as Pepsi Dining Center, LUMS and HTL Express.
