Intelligent Retail Announces eBay Integration with Its Multichannel EPoS System via New "Drag and Drop"

Intelligent Retail is preparing the launch of the new and improved Connect Multichannel Centre; a simple way to link together sales channels including shop, mail order, website(s) and eBay all in one, easy to use system.

Newbury, United Kingdom, April 07, 2011 --( eBay has recently announced it's focusing on new, fixed price items and bringing in more brand-name fashion merchandise, so this is particularly exciting for retail sectors such as Fashion retail. Fashion is likely to become an even stronger part of eBay, meaning now there is an even greater opportunity for independent fashion retailers to sell via this huge eCommerce shopping centre. Connect tackles the key problems that retailers face in selling on Ebay; adding items and stock control.

With more than 94 million active users, eBay is one of the most visited ecommerce sites in the world. It offers a fantastic opportunity for retailers to bring their products straight to a place where millions of people are searching for items with a high intent to buy.

One of the sectors likely to benefit hugely from selling on eBay is Sports retail. Intelligent Retail's multichannel EPoS system has already vastly benefitted smaller independent sports retailers across the UK, through efficient stock control between multiple channels.

Whilst eBay now offers an exciting route to market for independents, part of the difficulty in selling on eBay is the administration. Adding and managing items can be very time consuming. Now, the new Connect Multichannel Centre makes it very easy, putting the retailer in control. Just drag and drop products into a eBay and Connect EPoS System will list them on that channel and manage the stock. It will inform the retailer when products have been sold, bringing the order back to the Connect Fulfilment Centre. Connect now brings eBay stock control in easy reach of UK retailers.

David Mackley, MD of Intelligent Retail said, "Drag & Drop is the easiest and most visual way to manage large quantities of stock. It's an exciting feature to be able to integrate in to our EPoS systems, and we look forward to seeing retailers benefitting from automatic stock control between their shop, website and eBay."

Intelligent Retail was established in 2004, and now helps hundreds of retailers across the UK reap the rewards of improved profitability from increased revenue and reduced costs. The Connect Epos System has won many awards over the years including innovation awards over several years, and Best Multichannel EPoS System in 2009.
