Cegid is a highly respected company with a loyal client base that includes some of the largest, most recognizable high-end retailers in the world.

Developed in collaboration with sales associates, the Cegid product, called Shopping, is: intuitive, ergonomic, and customizable; available on both fixed and mobile POS devices; and functional on-premises or in the cloud via an SaaS subscription model.
Omni-channel inventory ensures that customers never find conflicting information or make a store visit that leaves them empty-handed and disappointed. An item that is ordered or purchased in any channel is immediately removed from available inventory across the channel. Cegid further enables and supports this omni-channel retail experience by allowing:
- Customers to shop the store’s website and have it shipped to store
- Customers to use the store’s app to indicate whether the items are in-store; the customer can then reserve them and buy on arrival
- An associate to let the customer know that another store has stock and notify that location to reserve, pick, pack and/or ship
- The customer to shop the store and have an associate send browsed items to the customer’s online account
- The associate to find and order online any items that are out-of-stock in store
The Cegid Shopping platform allows retailers to provide all omni-channel customer services in-store. Features include:
- Connected services: e-reservation, click and collect, increased assortment, omni-channel order taking, etc.
- Cataloging: retailers can display stock status in stores, warehouses and networks in real-time, and access an extensive digital catalog.
- Clienteling: provides retailers with a 360-degree view of their customers’ shopping journey (offline-online-social), purchase history, and RFM (recency, frequency, and monetary value) score.
