Master Merchant Systems, based out of Halifax, Canada, and The Retail Outsource Companies, based out of Miami, have – as leaders in the wireless industry – entered into a strategic partnership intended to provide their respective clients with a unique value proposition, allowing new and existing clientele from both companies to benefit from a partnership that further enhances and innovates the wireless retail industry.
Founded in 1987, Master Merchant Systems has continually been recognized as being a world-class leader for producing POS software for the wireless industry. With thousands of clients in multiple countries worldwide, and with a depth and completeness of service like no other, MMS continues to integrate for their specific clients’ needs and to continually innovate in order to remain what is often recognized as being the most practical POS tool available on the market. With cutting edge offerings like V-DOCS (paperless contracts let clients cut costs instead of trees), MMS continues to look for opportunities and initiatives that ultimately benefit wireless retailers.
The Retail Outsource Companies specialize in helping retailers, carriers and manufacturers improve sales and efficiency in their channels. The companies include The Retail Outsource, one of the nation’s leading outsource agencies specializing in sales performance programs, turnkey store opening, and retail staffing, training and management; Mobile Insight, a wireless application developer that provides mobile workforce automation for companies who deploy field teams; and SYMBITS, an IT managed services firm that provides outsourced IT and help desk support to SMBs and the retail channel. The Retail Outsource was ranked #187 on the 2010 Inc. 500 list of fastest-growing private companies.
“MMS is ecstatic about the partnership with TRO,” said Matt Brannon, VP Sales for MMS. “TRO brings a new dimension to our company and customers by offering retail management outsourcing, IT managed services for SMBs and outside sales/field team management through mobile devices. Besides being a company with terrific products and services, TRO aligns with our company philosophy around strategic partnerships; like us they value the customer above all else and are committed to continuing to innovate retail. 2011 is going to be an exciting year for both companies as we continue to work together on multiple projects.”
“We always seek partners who are a natural complement to our companies, both in culture and in their offerings, and MMS is a perfect fit on all counts,” said Brett Beveridge, CEO of The Retail Outsource Companies. “Our ability to collaborate in our sales process and build a compelling, unique and unmatched offering for our collective clients and prospects is a definite case of the whole being greater than the sum of its parts. MMS has elegant solutions for retailers, and with our common positioning, such as V-DOCS’ and Mobile Insight’s positioning as green productivity resources for retailers, the opportunities from this partnership can be limitless. We look forward to many years of mutual success.”
