Veras Retail Releases CheckOut Point-of-Sale Version 9.0

More than $1M invested in R&D since acquiring the product in May 2016

PHOENIX--()--Zoftec LLC dba Veras Retail today announced the latest release of Veras CheckOut point-of-sale software, Version 9.0. Over six developer years and over $1 million in investment have been applied to Veras CheckOut 9.0, reflecting Veras’ commitment to innovate and compete in the dynamic point-of-sale technology market. The enhanced capabilities in CheckOut, and its bundled complementary products Veras Stock back office and Veras Control central administration, include:

  • Payment Integrations. Veras CheckOut relies on leading payment providers to keep pace with payment security and keep the point-of-sale insulated from sensitive data. In addition to upgrading existing integrations, Veras is proud to announce the certification of Veras CheckOut 9.0 with the Cayan® Genius® platform on both traditional and mobile payment devices, allowing our mutual customers to achieve Cayan’s best-in-class EMV transaction speed, while maintaining a secure and reliable payment environment.
  • Additional Hardware Choices. In addition to the wide variety of presently supported Unified POS-compliant hardware platforms, Veras CheckOut 9.0 adds support for the Elo PayPoint for Windows and Elo I-Series for Windows touchscreen platforms, providing modern, sleek options to power customer transactions in-store.
  • APIs for Mobility and More. Veras CheckOut 9.0 now includes RESTful web services-based APIs for transaction processing, product and customer lookups, and more. These services enable real-time communications with e-commerce and other applications, as well as forming the backbone of the integration with Veras Extend mobile POS on iOS and Android. These APIs also support simulation of promotional scenarios by Veras Activate promotions management.
  • Speedier Implementations. CheckOut 9.0 adds an array of configuration, deployment, integration, and monitoring utilities to allow retailers to more quickly and easily take advantage of the power of Veras CheckOut. An updated software stack and new security features give peace of mind when deploying Veras CheckOut in a variety of retail formats.

“When Veras acquired the point-of-sale software products from JDA Software in May, our commitment to our customers was to continue to innovate and invest in these products,” said Rohit Vir, founder and CEO of Veras Retail. “The release of CheckOut 9.0, with over 30 enhancements, proves our level of investment and ability to innovate.”

“We are proud of the work that we’ve done to bring CheckOut 9.0 to market, and thrilled to be working with our new alliance partners at Cayan and Elo,” said Bruce Herrier, Vice President at Veras Retail. “Alongside the new versions of Veras Locate inventory management, Activate promotions management and Extend mobile POS, CheckOut 9.0 is a great application for retailers to connect with their customers and optimize the in-store shopping experience.”

Veras CheckOut 9.0 will be made available to current customers on January 30, 2017. Veras will showcase the new release at its booth 700 at the National Retail Federation Expo, January 15-17.
