Furniture World News on

STORIS Management Systems, a leading supplier of Retail Solutions and Services for Big Ticket retailers, announced the launch of Release 8.7, the latest version of STORIS’ highly successful Windows-based product Vision R8. This dynamic release provides retailers with the ability to run a leaner enterprise, and includes advanced enhancements designed to maximize the customers' shopping experience.

“We are excited to premier R8.7. In addition to our internal research and development efforts, we also consider our client’s direct product feedback and incorporate it accordingly to produce a powerful software release. Our Development Team worked closely with two of our Top 100 retail clients to create some of the enhancements to this release,” stated Doug Culmone, COO of STORIS.

American Furniture Warehouse and Haynes Furniture were both the beta sites for R8.7. Jake Jabs, Owner of American Furniture Warehouse stated, “It was time to make the conversion to R8.7. Business has been really good and our timing was perfect. The idea was to do more, with less overhead and smarter systems.” Jabs continues, “Nothing beats a stable system. When a stable system gets better, it maintains peace of mind while empowering people to find even more efficient ways to do their work.”

R8.7 includes highlights to the powerful eSTORIS product. This fully integrated eCommerce platform offers the following features: Create Product Reviews/Ratings, Auto-Move to Clearance Web Category, and the Icovia Room Planner. Retailers will also benefit from the Credit Application product, which is integrated with STORIS’ credit reporting capabilities to
reference credit reports and scores.

Retailers will be optimizing their purchasing decisions with the new Merchandising features, including the ability to classify merchandise as “marked down” for clearance or promotional purposes, as well as indicating discontinued products and individual markdown prices at specific locations.

Lastly, STORIS received its PCI PA-DSS certification on January 6, 2010. As a result of this certification R8.7 now resides on the List of Validated Payment Applications by the PCI Security Standards Council, LLC. There are numerous additional enhancements included in R8.7. Contact STORIS at 888-4-STORIS for further information.
