Michael Kors tests out Aptos ONE platform
Michael Kors has announced a pilot project involving the Aptos One platform, which will enable it to process customer transactions anywhere on locally resilient mobile devices, without the need for store servers.
“While the initial pilot deployment is focused on making the sale anytime and anywhere with a mobile device, ultimately we will be looking at how the Aptos ONE platform can create a foundation to innovate faster, unify and streamline core commerce and customer enablement capabilities, and differentiate the Michael Kors shopping experience in a way that is unique to our brand,” says Dave Kardesh, CIO at Michael Kors.
“When Michael Kors is evaluating technology investments, we ask ourselves if the potential innovations will improve the experience for our customers and our associates, and if it will empower our business to better adapt to change,” adds Kardesh. “When evaluating Aptos ONE, the answer to these questions was a resounding yes. We were impressed at how the platform sits alongside and augments our current Aptos Store Point of Sale system to create a flexible, extensive and scalable technology ecosystem with a cloud-native, API-driven approach to deploying enterprise class software.”
