Purpose built for the edge, Zynstra’s powerful software virtualizes back and front office store technology, with intelligent automation to deliver software defined stores. Specific virtualization solutions include Store, POS, mobile POS Tablet, Kiosk, Self-Checkout and Enhanced PCI-DSS Compliance.


The Software Suite

The retail battleground has moved to the edge – in the physical store. There is a growing need for the digitization of the store to deliver the shopping experiences of tomorrow while driving greater operational efficiencies. Retailers require a secure in-store technology platform that can cope with constant change, is less expensive to setup, can be rolled out easily across new stores and avoids costly hardware refresh cycles. Zynstra have built an end to end software suite for retail, designed for today’s challenges and leveraging the latest developments in edge technology.

Our powerful software suite comprises of three integrated components: Intelligent Edge software, as a platform for reduced cost to serve in store, Intelligent Control Plane for management, control and innovation, and the Intelligent Edge Client that provides secure connectivity for users and peripherals to virtualized applications be they Point of Sale, customer-facing or back-office workloads running on a Zynstra Intelligent Edge.

It reduces the in-store IT bill of materials and operating costs significantly, while delivering a platform for continuous innovation. All of this is provided with PCI-DSS conformance built in.

The Channel Islands Co-operative Society is building for the future, and by deploying Zynstra’s powerful retail edge technology, we are solving today’s operational challenges and providing a platform for powerful new in-store applications.
