For Immediate Release: 3rd January 2020
Compulynx recently concluded rolling out of NEXX, its state-of-the-art Next Generation Retail Suite, for One Vasco, a Visa services global organization, headquartered in Dubai, UAE. The Cloud-based ERP retail solution will enable One Vasco’s retail operations across 120 locations in over 30 countries globally to work coherently as one integral solution for the business.
Using NEXX Retail ERP accessible on the cloud, retail business of all sizes such as One Vasco will now access affordable technology, significantly reduce costs of managing and maintaining IT systems as well as increase data security, efficiency and agility to scale business operations as a competitive advantage. One Vasco has been using Compulynx’s previous generation Retail Solution namely CORE for its Retail operations. CORE was designed and deployed on the older Client Server technology and has served the business requirements of over 400 retailers across the globe, including One Vasco, who have been using CORE for over 5 years.
Globally, technology advancements have prompted software developers and users to reinvent their product architectures and deployment models. Compulynx is no exception to this pressure, as the urge came from its most advanced and forward looking customers. To this end, One Vasco challenged Compulynx to migrate its platform from Client-Server to Cloud. Compulynx took up the challenge and took on the task of redesigning and re-engineering its Retail Suite on the Cloud architecture which gave birth to NEXX, which is now being offered on the cloud, by Compulynx to its customers.
One Vasco being one of the key inspirations behind NEXX solution was naturally the first choice for Compulynx to deploy its cloud ERP, which was set up at over 120 locations in a record time of under 90 days. “It was a major project for us as this entailed completely overhauling the IT systems for our Retail operations. We had to make sure that the migration happens with minimum, if not zero, disruption to our business and service to our customers. Both One Vasco and Compulynx teams meticulously planned the migration with attention to utmost detail and the end result was that we migrated with no business disruption,” said Mr Jaishankar, Head of IT at OneVasco, speaking at the Project Handover ceremony held at One Vasco offices in Dubai. Also present at the ceremony was Mr Siddesh Narkar, the Head of Retail Practice and NEXX Product Owner at Compulynx. “It has been a fulfilling journey for us to travel this distance with One Vasco where we deployed CORE about 5 years ago, and how we took on their challenge and ended up with our cloud ready Retail Suite, NEXX, and then went on to complete the deployment in record time. Both teams have worked very hard to make sure this becomes a model deployment of its kind”, said Mr Narkar.
With this successful migration and roll out of NEXX at over 120 locations, Compulynx now looks forward to migrating its existing customer base of CORE to NEXX over the next 12 to 18 months, while looking for new customers who will reap business benefits of accessing secure and affordable technology without investing in costly IT infrastructure by deploying NEXX for their retail businesses.
