Long Beach, Calif., September 15, 2015– Epson America, Inc., a leading supplier of value-added Point of Sale (POS) solutions, today announced a strategic alliance with Nimble Software Systems, Inc., a leading provider of cloud-based workforce optimization software.
As part of the alliance, Nimble Software’s NimbleSchedule, which provides food service and retail establishments with a powerful and cost effective application to manage predictive staff schedules, track attendance and analyze profitability, will be leveraging the Epson Cloud and OmniLink® smart printers, which provide a suite of cloud-based software solutions for retail and hospitality markets. Nimble Software Systems is the newest member of the Epson Cloud, which offers easy access to a global network of tools, best practices, business data and expertise.
The Epson Cloud leverages Epson’s OmniLink smart solutions, which address the fundamental market challenge of disparate POS solutions that lack a common data language. These solutions provide a gateway that gives users the flexibility and availability to manage inventory, staffing, loss/prevention, merchandising, logistics, analytics and more without having to worry about costly POS integration. The Epson Cloud gives users in hospitality and retail the option to share their POS data with cloud-based service providers in a way previously not possible.
“Business owners and managers are constantly looking for more innovative ways to best optimize their staffing without compromising service,” said Sasha Poljak, CEO of Nimble Software Systems. “The combination of Epson’s OmniLink and NimbleSchedule offers them an opportunity to view real time sales data along with their staffing costs, making it really easy to manage and adjust according to business dynamics they face in their daily operations.”
“Customers are drawn to our new generation of OmniLink intelligent printers because they provide great, time tested hardware along with the best in class software applications such as NimbleSchedule to manage their employee schedules and track attendance,” commented Joel Doherty, head of global strategy – Epson Cloud. “Our integration with NimbleSchedule allows our customers to no longer have to depend on their legacy POS systems to manage their staffing and analyze costs and profits. We bring our mutual clients’ businesses a significant combined value.”
