JDS Solutions is to announce that Soft Surroundings has selected JDS Solutions' POS and Retail Management System.

Soft Surroundings, based in St. Louis, MO, is a multi-channel retailer dedicated to providing stylish and comfortable casual apparel, home décor, luxury bedding, skincare, cosmetics and fragrance to women of all ages. Soft Surroundings' catalog and e-Commerce channels are thriving, and now the company is planning for aggressive growth in retail.

“JDS Solutions will allow us to be both competitive and successful as we expand our commitment to store growth,” said Tom Slone, Director of IT at Soft Surroundings. “The ease of integration with our existing systems as well as the robust functionality provided by JDS Solutions are two big factors leading to this partnership. We are very impressed with the retail knowledge JDS brings to this partnership as well as their commitment to our success.”

JDS Solutions offers powerful end-to-end flexible retail solutions to manage and drive retail growth. WinRetail, JDS' flagship Point of Sale and Retail Enterprise Management System, is uniquely designed for mid-size retailers. “Soft Surroundings is a great fit with our retail system; our experience with multi-channel retailers will allow easy integration to all the different Soft Surroundings systems,” said Dan Friedman, Founder and President of JDS Solutions. “We're very pleased Soft Surroundings has selected JDS Solutions to support their retail growth plans,” added Friedman.

Retailers need to maintain constant insight into their inventory to satisfy a demanding marketplace; timely access to inventory reports is critical for store managers to access what's selling, what's hot and what's not, and all by style color, size and width.

WinRetail makes it easier for retailers to:

• Predict what customers will buy
• Manage inventory across warehouses, locations and e-Commerce business
• Manage inventory to match demand
• Improve customers' shopping experience with mobile POS
• Streamline transaction processing
• Expedite checkouts and target customer preferences
• Automate purchase order management
• Scale to meet business growth

WinRetail is designed so retailers have easy access to information and can therefore gain better insight and control over their business. “JDS was one of the most easily understood systems from the user's perspective,” said Laura Barrett, Vice President of Soft Surroundings. “I am confident that all users will be able to improve their knowledge of what is selling and what needs to be in the stores based on historical analysis. Soft Surroundings is very report driven in our catalog/internet business, and we now feel we can be as knowledgeable in our retail business. We feel very fortunate to have found JDS Solutions.”
