Fiverun Showcase is a great example of how a startup idea grows into a product, and then this product becomes a part of a large-scale platform.
It was designed as a digital showroom for retail brands to display goods and services. Today, Showcase is a part of a fully functional SaaS solution that can be used as an online and in-store point of sale in any field.
Showcase, the online catalog, grew up from an idea introduced to Digiteum back in the end of 2011. Then, Digiteum developed an MVP version of Showcase in 2012 and prepared it for demonstration to investors and buyers.
After being endorsed by a number of investors, Fiverun Showcase was acquired by KIBO and became a part of KIBO platform – omnichannel solution for retail and ecommerce.
At MVP stage, Fiverun Showcase already has a number of features and broad functionality.
In the front-end, it is equipped with a product display with smart selection and memory and visual dashboard. As a point of sale, it is integrated with ordering and cashless payment system and social media for better customer engagement. Showcase works both online and offline for in-store sales.
The back-end operates for product and customer data collection and management, inventory and merchandise analytics and order tracking and processing.
Fiverun Showcase prototype was easily adjustable to the needs of different retail and ecommerce verticals, so it could fit any online and offline sales funnel. This is why it was organically merged with a SaaS ecommerce platform.
