WinRetail’s main competitors include Lightspeed and Shopify POS.

Lightspeed is a retail management solution that works on the Apple platform and supports both fixed and mobile POS stations. It is provided as a web-enabled application and can handle multi-store retail operations as well. The product’s main features include quotations & orders, invoicing and inventory management. For financial management it can be integrated to Quickbooks, but it also has an API which allows connectivity with a number of other third party applications. There is also support for customer management & loyalty programs.

WinRetail on the other hand can be bundled with POS hardware, or alternatively it can be integrated with existing customer POS infrastructure. While it does support mobile POS stations, it also includes procurement & warehouse management, replenishment & re-ordering, as well as business intelligence tools to evaluate performance. Additionally the product can handle multi-channel retailing with merchandise planning to address customer demand.

Then there is Shopify POS which is cloud based but offers offline mode operations when there is no internet connectivity. The product is designed to work with IPads unlike WinRetail, and these devices can be used as both fixed and mobile POS units. Additionally the product provides e-commerce enabled web stores to handle online shopping requirements, with customer management & loyalty programs to reward frequent buyers.

WinRetail however is hardware independent and is available only as an on premise solution. However it does provide its own CRM system to handle customers as well a rewards program, along with pricing optimization for sales & promotions based on historical buying & sales performance.
