APP Group’s brands Mackage and SOIA & KYO have adopted the NewStore mPOS and OMS to modernize their retail operations
BOSTON and MONTREAL, Aug. 16, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — NewStore, a modular, mobile-first omnichannel cloud platform for retail brands worldwide, today announced APP Group has rolled out its technology in its Mackage and SOIA & KYO stores. By replacing its legacy POS with a complete mobile POS, the company has transformed the in-store experience for associates and shoppers. Additionally, the APP Group brands now use the NewStore OMS, which will enable core omnichannel capabilities such as endless aisle, store fulfillment, and inventory management.
"Omnichannel is a game changer for our APP Group brands. We are already seeing the benefits of the NewStore platform through new features, like buy-online-ship-from-store, which are driving incremental sales and increasing revenue," said Patrick C. Elfassy, Executive Chairman, APP Group. "Our associates have also found NewStore to be extremely intuitive and they can get up and running in a few hours. In fact, spinning up a whole new store is so easy that we will be opening new locations in Europe earlier than expected."

Across the two brands, the NewStore platform is now live in 16 stores and three countries, including Canada, the United States, and the United Kingdom, with plans to scale in the months ahead.
"APP Group is the latest example of Canadian-born brands that are raising the bar for retail innovation," said Stephan Schambach, Founder and CEO, NewStore.
