Eurostop’s latest office in Asia-Pacific’s shopping mecca supports company growth and provides local sales and support to large retailers
Eurostop, a leading supplier of retail management and EPOS solutions for the Fashion, Footwear and General Merchandise sectors, has opened a new office in Kowloon, Hong Kong to provide sales and support to customers in the locality. Kowloon, on the mainland in the northern part of Hong Kong, is a major shopping, arts and entertainment district. This latest venture supports Eurostop’s growth in China and beyond over the last few years, with offices opened in Shanghai, Xiamen and Singapore that have resulted in the company winning many high-profile customers. Eurostop’s e-retail management solution, developed locally to address the specific needs of very large retailers, is already used by leading retailers in the area including Erke, the international sports brand with over 7,000 outlets, Anta Sports, a major sponsor of the Beijing Winter Olympics with 12,000 outlets and recently Fuanna, with 2,000 stores across China.
Hew Poh Yin, Managing Director, Eurostop China, commented; “Growth in the Asia Pacific region has been significant and is set to continue. This latest office opening underlines our commitment to the area by offering retailers a strong, local support network backed up by the latest technology. We have developed our software for the market and believe that it also important that we provide a localised customer experience. We feel that our understanding of Chinese consumers and local service infrastructure is particularly important in this fast paced and demanding environment and offers us a distinct competitive advantage.”
Eurostop’s e-retail solution has been designed specifically to support the operations of retailers and enables the rollout of the software to be completed remotely, saving time and expense involved in large scale implementations.
The retail system for Fuanna includes Eurostop’s latest innovative solution, v‑shop, which provides integration with the popular Chinese online instant messaging app ‘WeChat’. v-shop supports the latest retail trend – Online to Offline (O2O) – that provides online information, services or discounts to consumers with the aim of enhancing the offline shopping experience and drawing them in store.
Richard Loh, CEO of Eurostop said; “For some years we have been committed to international expansion. Entering the Chinese market required a huge investment which we feel has paid dividends with our ability to deliver easy to use, reliable and powerful retail systems for retailers with large scale operations. The development of our software systems, including integration with popular new shopping trends like WeChat, and the local knowledge and expertise that we have employed to support customers, have been a worthwhile investment.”
