Appriss Retail Makes Aspect, APIS, and LPMS Available in the Microsoft Azure Cloud

Newly Acquired Solutions to Benefit from Unlimited Capacity for Growth and Scalability

Appriss Retail, the industry leader in retail performance improvement solutions, today will make several of its retail loss prevention solutions – Aspect EliteLP™, APIS (Asset Protection Information System), and LPMS (Loss Prevention Management System) – available in Microsoft Azure for the first time. This will offer users of these solutions greater accessibility, availability, and innovation.

“Aspect, APIS, and LPMS are very important to Appriss Retail and are key components of our platform,” said Steve Prebble, president of Appriss Retail. “The move to the Microsoft Azure cloud is one step of many activities in our platform roadmap. Combining the knowledge and enthusiasm of the product teams with Appriss Retail’s data science, we plan to accelerate innovation and build a pathway that brings all solutions into alignment with Appriss’s offerings.”

Aspect, APIS, and LPMS will be hosted on the Microsoft Azure cloud, which also gives businesses increased computing horsepower and storage resources. This means the technology can quickly and seamlessly scale up or down, on demand, as client needs change. Additionally, Microsoft Azure introduces an additional layer of security and reliability, which is incredibly important for critical technology solutions like Aspect, APIS, and LPMS.

Through acquisition and organic growth, Appriss Retail’s footprint is expanding globally from its roots in the US and UK; its solutions are in use in 45 countries and on six continents. The Appriss Retail Performance Platform of solutions incorporates analytics and artificial intelligence to create real-time automated decisions, post-transaction insights, and recommended user actions.
