G7 and Swan Retail, two leading systems specialists with a strong track record of partnership on implementations have merged. The merger brings together Swan’s Retail Management system and G7’s POS system, enabling retailers to benefit from a seamless, fully integrated POS and Retail Management solution for the independent sector

According to Swan Retail Managing Director David Thompson, Swan and G7 have been working together successfully since the beginning of 2013, delivering their solutions to destination retailers such as furniture retailers, garden centres and department stores. During this time they have welcomed 23 new customers.

Thompson says “The merger is the natural next step in light of our already strong and highly successful working relationship with G7. By using G7Swan’s comprehensive and cost-effective business applications, independents will no longer have to license a third-party applications to achieve their integration and multi-channel aims. What’s more, we not only offer the technology but also a  partnership approach, with the personal service, long-term road map and the 7-day support teams that independents need.”

G7 Managing Director Neil Biltcliffe adds: “Progressive independent retailers know they have to invest appropriately in integrated systems and processes if they are to compete and be profitable. This merger makes a fully integrated, end-to-end, multi-channel retail solution, which support both small and big ticket merchandise, available to retailers at a cost that makes sense.”

Thompson concludes: “At Swan Retail we are building our business with a very clear aim – to further help independent retailers build their businesses, their service and their profit.”
