Octopus’ technology is now powering Asus locations in 16 cities across China, driving omnichannel sales and providing seamless shopping experiences

SINGAPORE (20 June, 2019) – Octopus Retail Management (Octopus), the retail technology provider used by leading businesses to make retail smart and personal, today announced that its cutting-edge point-of-sale (POS) suite of solutions has been successfully implemented in Asus locations across China. Octopus was recently in the news with an announcement of their partnership with JD.com and is aggressively pursuing growth in the Asia Pacific (APAC) region.

Octopus’ solutions have been rolled out for Asus stores across 16 cities in China – including Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Hangzhou, among others – creating a connected infrastructure and eliminating the complexity of managing its network of stores. Octopus’ smart retail technology gives Asus real-time visibility over the cloud to monitor sales, run promotions and manage inventory more efficiently.

Importantly, Octopus’ customizable solutions have been integrated with the Alibaba iStore system, including Customer Relationship Management (CRM) integration and payment integration. This seamless integration allows Asus to drive omnichannel sales and enhance the customer experience both in store and online.

The retail space is transforming rapidly. We wanted a retail software solution that would integrate with Alibaba CRM and allow seamless promotions and inventory management across our network of stores in China. Partnering with Octopus will enable us to achieve that and deliver an enhanced shopping experience for our customers Wu Rui, Project Director at Asus.

"We are proud to be selected by Asus to deliver our software solutions to drive their retail business forward,” said Ong Whee Shiong, Managing Director of Octopus. “Octopus’ smart retail technology will enable Asus to manage their store network across China to enhance their business productivity and drive store experiences that exceed their customers’ expectations.
