Podium Announces Strategic Partnership with PROFITsystems, Strengthens Foothold in Furniture Retail Industry
- Podium's customers will be able to use PROFITsystems to seamlessly integrate with their point of sale (POS) data
- Allows furniture retailers to automatically merge sales data to Podium's online review and messaging products
LEHI, Utah, April 5, 2018 -- Podium, the leading customer communication platform for local businesses, today announced a strategic partnership with PROFITsystems, one of the furniture industry's leading providers of retail software solutions. This partnership will allow furniture retailers the ability to integrate their Point of Sale (POS) data with Podium's unique messaging and online review products.
"Over the past forty years, PROFITsystems has been a trusted partner for furniture retailers," said Joanne Gulnac, General Manager of PROFITsystems. "Over that time, we have been constantly refining how to best use their point of sale systems. Thanks to this partnership with Podium, we are able to better use and automate that POS data, bringing tech solutions in the furniture industry to a whole new level. We are proud that this partnership allows Podium and PROFITsystems clients to be at the forefront of that development."
Through automating online review invitations, customers who have recently completed a transaction are sent an invitation to review the business via text within minutes, when reviews are most accurate and likely to be acted on. This integration will save furniture retailers time as well as increasing the number and quality of their online reviews on Google, Facebook, and other key sites customers use when deciding where to make their furniture purchases.
"PROFITsystems has been one of the leading forces providing tech solutions in the furniture retail industry," said Brad Jenson, VP of Business Development at Podium. "This was a key factor in Podium choosing them as a close, operational partner. Adding PROFITsystems' data integration to Podium's powerful online review and two-way messaging products will supercharge their user's competitive advantage in winning new customers and keeping loyal customers."
