Software Development

With close to 30 years of experience implementing, enhancing and supporting market-leading point of sale systems for major UK retailers, the team at MWC Partners are experts in POS software development.

Our development team undertake software development projects to help retailers enhance and extend POS, store and central retail systems, thereby extending the functional capabilities of their software estate and the breadth of their retail offer.

Examples of the types of projects we take on include application development to augment turnkey POS, store and head office systems, the development of new point solutions where functionality sits more naturally outside core applications, and development to build and expand omnichannel retail capabilities.

This approach – designing software that extends or is integrated with existing systems – offers retailers a flexible and cost-effective way to introduce new features faster and for less cost. It also lets retailers introduce and test functionality without compromising core applications, allowing performance of the change to be reviewed and modified if required, with minimal disruption to the business.

Examples range from simple data analysis and operational reporting, to discrete point applications, through to more complex solutions that bridge the gap between the centralised components of the POS solution and the retailer’s eCommerce systems. Recent projects include:

  • Loss prevention reports, accessible via central systems
  • A simple loyalty application, interfaced with Retail-J
  • Omni-channel capabilities such as click and collect and ordering from website instore
  • Stock Patrol, a retail mobile stock counting application for stock control and goods-in and goods-out procedures in stores
  • PED Patrol, an easy-to-use PED device management solution for tracking, monitoring and auditing retail estates of Chip & PIN devices

With a long track record of successfully integrating both point solutions and leading turnkey systems for major retailers, we are also specialists in retail systems integration. You can find out more here.

    “Anya Hindmarch appointed MWC Partners a couple of years ago to help support our Retail-J POS solution. During that time MWC Partners have proved themselves to be absolutely invaluable. Though we continue to use the software author to provide third and fourth line support, we use MWC Partners for all Retail-J technical training, project work and configuration changes.

    Their professionalism and obsession with providing the very highest levels of customer service come as a welcome contrast to that of some of our other suppliers. They have a good, pragmatic and cost effective approach to problem solving that ensures projects are completed on time and within budget, with minimal disruption to the business. They are a “safe pair of hands” who are making a significant contribution to the improvement of our retail systems.”
