Lightspeed Rolls Out New Features
Lightspeed is adding new features for in-store POS and e-commerce, including Mobile Tap, Digital Wallet and Analytics Core.
The new tools offer increased mobility when processing transactions, more options for viewing business insights and will better support small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) as they continue to adjust to shifting consumer behavior due to COVID-19.
With Mobile Tap, Lightspeed merchants in the U.S. using Lightspeed Payments will now be able to process transactions with just a tap in-store or curbside, offering greater flexibility in situations of social distancing. The Mobile Tap hardware connects through Bluetooth, and payments are processed securely with the integration of end-to-end encryption technology.
Optimized for mobile devices, the Digital Wallet in North America supports faster e-commerce conversion and supports a variety of payment methods globally, including Google Pay and Apple Pay for a one-click e-commerce checkout experience.
Through Analytics Core, users will have access to a variety of business dashboards and insights on sales, inventory and employee performance, enabling retailers to make data-driven decisions about the future. This module will be released globally.
Lightspeed continues to share industry knowledge through an online resource guide that serves to protect SMBs during the pandemic.
“Our priority as we look to the future of retail is to enable our customers to adapt quickly to the dramatic and rapid changes in consumer behaviour over the past few months,” said Dax Dasilva, founder and CEO of Lightspeed. “The SMBs that Lightspeed powers are innovating quickly because they are equipped with tools that help them remain agile, stay connected with their customers, and future-proof their businesses.”
