Mac OS X Lion-ready, LightSpeed version 3.5 to drive creative POS customization while supporting new online retail options
The opening of the API makes LightSpeed a dynamic POS platform that caters to the store owner, developer or IT manager looking to build custom add-ons to the platform, while still remaining an easy-to-use, well-priced and richly functional out-of-the-box system that is attractive to small- to medium-sized retailers.
Using the LightSpeed API, developers can build custom applications such as external loyalty programs, third party eCommerce plug-ins, sales dashboards and integration with back-end ERP systems. Based on web services, the LightSpeed API exploits the power of LightSpeed Server and offers developers access to the same framework used by the POS screen and LightSpeed Mobile, the company’s award-winning mobile POS system.
LightSpeed eCommerce introduces new web store choices
LightSpeed 3.5 also sees the release of LightSpeed Web Store 2.1 with several new features, including promotional codes, tier-based shipping and advanced search. Web Store is now an open-source project, allowing retailers and developers to contribute to the evolution of the product and create more complex customizations.
