January 19th, 2023 by the STORIS Marketing Team
STORIS is named an approved Point of Sale provider by Nationwide.
Winston-Salem, NC & Mt. Arlington, NJ – Nationwide Marketing Group and point of sale provider STORIS announced an agreement that solidifies STORIS as an integral part of Nationwide’s “approved Point of Sale provider initiative.” This formalization coincides with the companies marking 25 years of collaboration on behalf of the independent retail channel. Over this time, the partnership has resulted in thriving technology offerings for over 100 Nationwide Members who’ve processed over $3B annually in retail revenue through STORIS. These Members are a part of STORIS’ over 500-member home furnishings and appliance retail community.
“As we formalize our Point of Sale initiatives, solidifying our program with STORIS was a top priority. Having collaborated closely with the STORIS team for decades, we have seen firsthand that their commitment to home furnishings and appliance retailers, level of client services, and industry knowledge are unmatched.”Steve Mahler, Director of Point of Sale for Nationwide
“We are equally excited to begin this next chapter of our partnership. We value the strong network of retailers, service offerings, and education Nationwide Marketing Group delivers to our industry and are pleased to be working even more closely together on joint initiatives.”Doug Culmone, STORIS President & COO
Through this partnership, STORIS and Nationwide will spearhead several new key initiatives. First, Nationwide Members can now choose STORIS’ new mobile, web-based STORIS NextGen platform as part of its solution. “STORIS’ continuous evolution of their STORIS NextGen platform keeps our mutual partners in a strong market position,” commented Mahler. “STORIS is the leader in technology designed for the home furnishings industry. They have a pulse on the needs of furniture, bedding, and appliance retailers along with a proven track record of executing their technology vision.”
Second, the STORIS team worked closely with Nationwide to provide multiple website service levels to meet the varying integration needs of the independent retailer. Together, they offer retailers three levels of e-commerce integration capabilities between the STORIS ERP and Site on Time or Retailer Web Services. This is achieved through Nationwide’s new Centerpoint website integration and STORIS’ APIs. Retailers have the flexibility to start with simple inventory synchronization or execute a fully integrated e-commerce strategy.
Finally, retailers can choose to submit aggregate data from STORIS to Nationwide’s PriMetrix program. This POS data sharing program helps leverage collective scale and gives Members business intelligence that delivers bottom-line results.
“We are excited to offer our Nationwide Members an even more robust partnership with STORIS. “What makes STORIS truly unique is their exceptional team. As a Top Workplace, STORIS retains a top-notch, in-house team across engineering and client services. They bring an unparalleled expertise of the home furnishings and appliance industry to their technology and client relationships that provide a key advantage to our mutual partners. There is consistency and reliability in our STORIS partnership that is a true value to our Members.”Steve Mahler, Director of Point of Sale for Nationwide
