In addition to being positive, we believe in the spirit of small business. Retailers are passionate about their business, their products, and their brand – so why shouldn’t their technology partner be just as passionate in helping them achieve retail success?
Empowering Independent Retailers Through Technology
National Merchant Alliance was founded by brothers Scott and Shannon Maher in 2005 as a technology-focused payments company. NMA’s third party partnership model focused on non-proprietary technology, that gave merchants a choice of electronic payment provider while generating revenue for NMA’s developer partners. Through these many partnerships, NMA was able to gain valuable insight into the retail industry and point-of-sale systems. The company’s focus on transparent, win-win partnerships allowed it to grow in a competitive market, later becoming Retail Success.
In 2011, Retail Success was formed during the acquisition of POSIM Software, a point-of-sale and inventory management software system built for small and medium sized businesses. Located near Salt Lake City, Utah, POSIM was a point-of-sale pioneer, tracing its roots to 1986 when the technology was in its infancy. For years POSIM claimed status as the only point-of-sale system available on the Apple platform. Today, POSIM is a cross-platform solution that supports both Mac and Windows users. POSIM has capitalized on 31 years of point-of-sale development knowledge and continues to evolve into an even more feature-rich and robust solution. Today, POSIM supports over 6000 users ranging from franchise organizations to omni-retailers, multiple store operations, and small owner operated retail establishments.
In 2014 Retail Success acquired the rights to Boutique Window from Kiplie, LLC. Boutique Window is a social media and email marketing platform for retailers that is a great fit in the Retail Success family of products. Boutique Window focuses on helping retailers engage their customers through a variety of means to stay top of mind. Boutique Window provides retailers with fresh, custom designed content and the capability for retailers to create professional social posts, emails, and other content. With Boutique Window users can easily schedule and manage their social presence and use social media and email marketing to drive business to their establishments.
The future is bright for Retail Success and our family of companies. Most notably, a great new vertically integrated product that utilizes expertise and services from all of our companies is being deployed to a national user base of over 75,000 independent retailers. And, soon the companies will move to new headquarters in Overland Park, Kansas.
