IBM Sterling Order Management
In V9.2.1, IBM Sterling Order Management continues to help make enterprises smarter with innovations that they can use to provide their customers with a seamless, omni-channel experience. This release also improves the scalability and performance of the solution to provide companies with the ability to scale to very high transaction volumes during their peak processing days.
This release extends IBM Smarter Commerce capabilities with pricing, payments, and returns enhancements, as well as with prebuilt integration to point-of-sale solutions, such as Toshiba TCxGravity, which will be particularly important to retail clients. IBM Sterling Order Management integration with point of sale gives the store and its customers easy access to transactional information and a consistent view of data from all channels, right at the point of checkout. This consistent view helps associates to execute traditional point-of-sale functions plus a full suite of cross-channel scenarios at checkout to improve consumer satisfaction and wallet share.
Further, IBM Sterling Order Management V9.2.1 offers two new add-on features that enable unparalleled advances in scalability and performance. These add-ons are designed to accommodate the transactional volumes of the largest enterprises in the world both today and in the future as their volumes grow with the continuing expansion of omni-channel commerce.
For retail clients, V9.2.1 introduces new editions of IBM Sterling Store that support a simplified pricing metric for components that are relevant to the store channel: IBM Sterling Store and IBM Sterling Mobile Framework for Internal Users. This per store-based pricing metric allows retail customers flexibility in deploying any mix of these components in their stores.
