In-store solution on a monthly rental basis results in flexibility for store location expansion

Detego with SaaS Model for Fashion Retailers

Detego, software vendor, providing article transparency in fashion retail, is now also offering its software products as software as a service (SaaS) as part of its managed services. There is a fixed monthly price per store location and a rental term of 36, 48 or 60 months including a combination of hardware and service components, including software updates. This means that companies with a preference for OPEX (operational expenditures) rather than CAPEX (capital expenditures) are specifically being addressed. Based on a pilot store location test using previously defined KPIs (key performance indicators), an upscaling covering the entire store network takes place. Fashion retailers thus get the rapid flexibility of a complete in-store solution in the event of a new store opening, quickly bringing the system online, or likewise taking the system offline with the closure of a business. As they are no longer bound to a provider via the purchase of software licenses, Detego users have the possibility to rapidly adjust the IT infrastructure to the requirements of their business. The Detego Suite is specifically tailored to the clothing retailers – new stores can be set up in just a few days. In terms of software components, there is an option to select one or more Detego products. The same is true for the hardware: the number and type of scanners for the identification of articles can be chosen flexibly. During the lifetime of the agreement, an exchange of older devices for newer devices is possible so that users in the store are always using the most up-to-date technology. In this way, the IT infrastructure is adaptable for store locations and their changing omni-channel requirements thanks to a flexible rental model.

“One of the global players in sports clothing retail is already making use of the flexibility of our SaaS rental model and has successfully implemented the rollout in their store location expansion. If a new store location is added, we equip it with the identical store system within a few days. For the customers, that equates to a routine procedure that does not involve a complicated internal investment proposition,” remarks Jürgen Reisinger, CFO of Enso Detego GmbH.
