Lightspeed POS has acquired Amsterdam-based eCommerce software company SEOshop. As part of the acquisition, Lightspeed is launching Lightspeed eCom, its new eCommerce platform in the UK.
For retailers who need to compete in an increasingly competitive, global retail environment, Lightspeed eCom offers a localized, multi-lingual, multi-currency eCommerce platform. Lightspeed’s first offering for online-only merchants features predictive analytics, full design customization and the ability to manage complex inventory needs. In the coming months, Lightspeed will integrate Lightspeed eCom with its Lightspeed Retail cloud-based POS solution, bringing multi-channel retailers an even more robust set of tools to run their entire business from one place.
To mark the occasion and demonstrate Lightspeed’s commitment to support the UK’s high street, the company is offering 50 retailers use of the platform for 12 months free of charge.
Lightspeed eCom is the most complete, all-in-one eCommerce solution on the market for independent retailers. UK merchants now have an easy-to-use, yet highly customizable, solution that enables them to launch their online stores quickly and with minimal technical requirements. They can market their products, sell to anyone from anywhere, adapt to international requirements, and analyze customer and store performance data for insights that help drive sales.
More than 26,000 businesses processing over $11 billion in transactions annually use Lightspeed’s mobile POS and commerce platform to manage inventory, customer preferences, sales, and analytics to get a complete view of their entire business in one place.
