iQmetrix and Ingram Micro Mobility Provide Retailers with Real-Time POS and Inventory Visibility
VANCOUVER, BC – Feb. 26, 2015 – As part of a new agreement, Ingram Micro Mobility will integrate with iQmetrix’s industry-leading RQ Retail Management system to provide its retail customers with real-time point-of-sale (POS) and inventory visibility.
Ingram Micro Mobility works with the world’s largest and best known retailers, device manufacturers and network operators, handling one in three mobile devices in the United States. iQmetrix RQ Retail Management enables retail staff to serve customers faster, more efficiently and with greater confidence than ever before. Retailers can integrate a carrier’s activation system, automate payment processing and create an audit trail to determine an item’s exact location at any time.
“Ingram Micro Mobility’s vast product and accessory portfolio makes this relationship ideal for our comprehensive RQ solution,” says Christopher Krywulak, iQmetrix’s President and CEO. “But beyond the products themselves, Ingram Micro Mobility brings a wealth of technology and retail-industry experience to our partner ecosystem. The possibilities for our companies are endless.”
The Ingram Micro Mobility-RQ integration is slated for the upcoming version of RQ (v4.19), and features an automated inventory system that links processes and information from RQ directly to the supplier, which creates an efficient and intelligent inventory system.
“iQmetrix is an important part of the North American mobility industry, as partners and customers use iQmetrix and its technologies on a daily basis,” says Bashar Nejdawi, Executive Vice President, Ingram Micro and President, North America, Ingram Micro Mobility. “We see the successful impact iQmetrix’s key technologies make in the mobility industry.
