Competitors & Alternatives

The main competitors for AIMsi are AmberPos and MainRetail.

AmberPos is a point of sale solution that supports single & multi-store operations. Additionally it can also handle retail shopping requirements in-store or via e-commerce web stores. Its features include inventory & customer management along with support for gift cards for frequent buyers to enable them to take advantage of promotional or discounted offers. The product can also manage suppliers along with purchasing to ensure inventory is correctly stocked to meet demand. It is however available only as an on premise solution.

AIMsi on the other hand provides a similar solution with some additional features such as being able to handle rental customers as well. There is also a service module to attend to customer product repairs or defects. The product can also integrate with time & attendance systems to track employees work timings, as well as with payroll to ensure proper compensation.

Then there is MainRetail which has a reporting module to track sales performance as well as the best moving goods in the store. It can handle lay-away schemes and provides a marketing module to handle multi-channel advertising and track its performance. There is also an option to manage sales commissions & incentives for staff to encourage more sales.

While AIMsi provides its own reporting module it does not address marketing at the moment. However it does support product trade-ins and package deals for loyal customers, as well as customization of the product to meet the business’s requirements
