LightSpeed Mobile puts Sales at your Fingertips

New mobile retail extension of POS platform

LightSpeed Mobile by Xsilva Systems Inc. is a dynamic and personal new way for retailers to engage with their customers and make the sales process more efficient. A mobile retail extension of LightSpeed, Xsilva's Point of Sale platform for Mac that blends innovative functionality with a stylish and intuitive look and feel, LightSpeed Mobile transforms the way retailers sell to their customers, providing a sharp competitive advantage over traditional retail systems and long line-ups at the register.

Retail sales staff can use LightSpeed Mobile to connect to a LightSpeed database and process sales from anywhere in the store with an iPod Touch and a Linea Pro "sled" – the same mobile hardware employed by Apple in its retail stores – which adds the ability to scan bar codes and swipe credit cards. This provides customers with an efficient, personalized shopping experience. Once the payment is approved, customers simply sign on-screen and receive their receipt instantly by email.

"Before LightSpeed Mobile, integration between mobile retail and the POS and inventory systems was limited to big-box players with high-priced custom systems," said   Dax Dasilva, founder and CEO of Xsilva Systems. "LightSpeed Mobile brings personal retailing to all retailers at a price that's affordable. Store staff can capture the moment when interest in the purchase is at its peak with one-to-one service that builds customer rapport and loyalty."

The LightSpeed Mobile app can be downloaded from the iTunes App Store.
