The tablet system allows for point of sale anywhere in-store.

Software company Pursuit will make its debut at this year’s IJL with its iPad-based Lifestyle point of sale technology and its SmartLinks automated supplier retail product information feed.

The programme, which works on other tablet forms, enables retailers to supply their customers with their full store catalogue giving them information about each product, improving the quality of service in store.


The programme has 32 function options and allows point of sale anywhere in the store. Customers can purchase through the programme, view collections, purchase gift vouchers and view their shopping and browsing history.

The SmartLinks service also streams images and barcodes of products straight to the central system.

Pursuit’s managing director Mike Burns said: “The response to the idea of replacing the tool with a multi-faceted sales tool that runs on an iPad – and other tablet services – has been even stronger than we anticipated.”

The programme is being used across the industry by independent retailers as well as larger more prominent brands and retailers such as Ti Sento and Gecko.
