Aptos enhances Skechers’ retail experience with new technologies


 Aptos, Inc., a recognised market leader in retail technology solutions, today announced that Skechers, a global footwear leader, has selected the Company’s point of sale solutions to modernise its technology footprint in Skechers-owned direct-to-consumer distribution channels.

With Skechers tripling its retail presence in the past five years, it recognised the need to adopt more modern, omnichannel-native solutions that would serve the needs of its business now and in the future. It will deploy Aptos solutions for points of sale and sales audits, and will leverage the Company’s microservices-based SaaS platform, Aptos ONE.

“Skechers is an authentic lifestyle brand that resonates with consumers around the world – and Aptos’ decades of expertise supporting industry-leading footwear retailers make us an ideal catalyst for its growth,” said Noel Goggin, Aptos CEO and culture leader. “It is an honour to support Skechers on their journey to enhance their retail and omnichannel infrastructure.”

“We were impressed with Aptos’ ability to implement software on a global stage with a single master configuration, solutions that are proven at scale and functionally robust, and their investments in innovation, including modern, API-driven architecture,” said Chris Coye, senior vice president of information technology at Skechers. “We believe that Aptos is the right technology partner to support us as we improve the infrastructure and efficiency of our direct-to-consumer operations.” 

Utilising Aptos Store for points of sale, Skechers will achieve a single view of customers, products and orders to enable seamless experiences across channels. And with its feature-rich store system, the solution is designed to empower Skechers personnel to offer informed customer service, faster checkouts and individualised customer engagement.
