It's a group thing

Welcome to the Group. We are Swan Retail, Swan Origination and Touchretail, collectively known as ClearCourse Retail Ltd.

We have more than 25 years’ experience in the retail software industry, developing and delivering retail applications for hundreds of businesses. Through our innovation and investment, we continue to shape the future of retailing.

We know there is power in numbers and partnerships. So, in 2018, Swan Retail acquired award-winning digital agency STANDOUT (now known as Swan Origination), giving us the capacity to offer eCommerce sites and marketing services. In 2019 we continued to grow, acquiring Touchretail – a force of nature in themselves, already making dynamic advancements within the retail system business. We’re proud of these partnerships, they’ve opened the doors to a more diverse client base and have given us the capacity to offer a complete end-to-end service.

You’ll find us right across the UK, in our offices in Waterlooville, Newcastle-under-Lyme and Hull, with our digital agency based in Leicester. We also have a dedicated team of industry experts operating in the USA.


What we offer

We make retailing easier. It is our mission to enable retailers to thrive without making retail complicated.

We offer a complete end-to-end, in-house service from the development of advanced retail solutions software to website design and marketing – with every function in between. We prioritise seamless integration, the ability to influence customer behaviour and making day-to-day retailing more efficient.

Our software applications are created by our team of experienced developers who truly understand the needs of retailers. Working in-house allows us to stay at the forefront of retail trends, functionality requirements and advances in technology, which we go to great measures to do.

We offer comprehensive solutions covering EPoS, stock management, accounts, customer ordering, warehousing, CRM, eCommerce and customer loyalty for the smallest businesses to the largest multi-nationals. We specialise in furniture and homeware stores, garden centres, sports stadiums and department stores, but our applications can be fitted to any retail operation.

We also provide specialised hospitality applications used within the catering sector, including the NHS.
