Intuitive, advanced and complete control for Department Stores

We work with many of the top independent department stores in the UK, so we understand that stock management is a top priority. Our software easily manages mixed merchandise ranging from pay-and-take items such as clothing and gifts to large, special order items such as furniture with all relevant options and the ability to handle back order processing.

What our clients say about our Department Store solution

“We are much more advanced with Swan’s Retail System and their Shopify integration, and we are going further than we ever could with our previous provider. Upgrading our old system would have been extremely expensive, whereas moving to Swan gave us everything we wanted in an easier-to-use way and at a fraction of the cost. It’s also more straightforward and much cheaper to scale up compared to other system providers.

“We’ve had some great feedback from our staff. Cygnus EPoS is fantastic; its user-friendly, does what it says on the tin and just works.”
