Montreal, QC, Canada, Oct. 30, 2019 -- Lightspeed, a provider of point of sale software, solutions and support systems to independent retail and restaurant locations worldwide, announced the availability of its Omnichannel product in Switzerland. Retailers across this country can now offer their customers a cohesive and efficient shopping experience both in-store and online.
Following the July 2019 acquisition of iKentoo, a Switzerland-based POS solutions provider, Lightspeed increases its presence in Switzerland with this Omnichannel offering for retailers in both German (coming this November) and French (available now) languages. With the iKentoo acquisition, 40 staff joined Lightspeed's global team as it enters new markets worldwide.
"As we grow in Switzerland following the acquisition of iKentoo, we are now able to provide retail solutions and help merchants make the transition to the cloud while driving forward a more efficient business," said Dax Dasilva, Founder and CEO of Lightspeed. "This expansion of Omnichannel in Switzerland will give consumers greater flexibility to shop how they like with a personal and streamlined system."
In addition to Lightspeed's growth in Switzerland, it has also recently announced the pending acquisition of Australia-based POS solutions provider Kounta.
