Transforming Brick and Mortar Stores with Digital Technologies
Sparkle creates business value by making independently designed systems work together. Our focus is on:
Helping accelerate retailers’ adoption of digital APIs by as much as 3 to 4 years.
Saving retailers and 3rd Party API providers $ millions in system integration and ongoing maintenance costs.
Delivering ROI’s for the retailer up to 45x.
A Problem Solved
Retail markets still rely on independently designed systems which were not designed to use modern automation processes or digital APIs.
Modifying or updating these can be expensive, time consuming and either not successful or limited in capabilities.
This is because these systems each have their own proprietary way of creating a transactional data event, such as building a shopping basket, inserting a coupon discount and/or accepting an alternative payment like a gift card.
Sparkle’s iPaaS solves the problem by creating a low code/no code common interface between the independently designed systems that enable different APIs (Fintech, loyalty, coupons, eReceipts etc) to be deployed quickly and easily.
