Lightspeed's game-changing innovations

1. Lightspeed Retail and NuORDER integration

Lightspeed has introduced an integration with NuORDER, a significant leap forward in optimizing the purchasing experience for retailers. This integration allows retailers to directly order from thousands of brands, streamlining the inventory management process. 

Notably, it facilitates the import of purchase orders into Lightspeed Retail, saving substantial time in product creation and inventory management.

2. Instant payouts for retailers

Understanding the importance of cash flow in retail, Lightspeed introduces “Instant Payouts.” With it, eligible merchants can now access transaction funds immediately, enhancing their ability to manage daily expenses and invest in growth opportunities.

3. Enhanced payments and reconciliation

Lightspeed Retail has enhanced its embedded payment system. This improvement streamlines the reconciliation process with popular accounting software like QuickBooks Online and Xero, simplifying financial management for retailers.

Finally, with “Standalone Mode”, retailers can process payments independently of their Lightspeed POS system, ensuring sales are never missed due to system constraints.
