App Store for Retail

App Store for Retail

Sparkle CS Ltd


Sparkle connects legacy and online retail solutions into a real-time cloud ecosystem to enable Big Data, connected store marketing and a true omni-channel customer experience.  Using Sparkle’s technology, retailers from independents to major chains have been able to rapidly and cost-effectively deploy integrated digital technology to drive customer engagement and increase sales.

Extensible Framework, an app store for your POS: Our framework allows the digital world to interact seamlessly with tills.  Want your till to do something we haven’t thought of? Add another app.

Making Coupons Work, Example App: Redemption Validation (RV): Our RV POS App allows digital and paper coupons to be accepted by the POS with controls against mis-redemption, reuse and fraud.

Driving Out Costs, Example App: Electronic Clearing (EC): No more need for expensive clearing houses! With EC, you know who owes you what within hours. Settle via trade accounts or let us manage it for you.

Cloud-based Management, Take control of your tills: Our cloud-based solution will get you up and running in no time. Change how your tills behave from your tablet in real-time.

Bridging the Gap, bringing tills online: We provide a range of patented technologies that allows legacy tills, from corner shops to mainline grocers, to join the App Store for Retail.

Future Proof, avoiding strategic paralysis: NFC, RFiD or QR Codes? You don’t need to guess. The App Store for Retail allows new interfaces to be plugged in at low cost.


  • Delivering Control: Retailers and issuers can distribute coupons knowing that they will be redeemed only once and for the right goods. By driving out fraud, we unlock the latent market.
  • Delivering Affordable Loyalty: By recognising your customers based on whatever identifiers they already have or by using uniquely coded offers to link together transactions, Sparkle provides high-precision targeting without the costly commitment of a loyalty programme.
  • Delivering Real-time Targeting: "Coupon on Demand" delivers the right offer to the right customer at the right time via the right channel, fully personalised and controlled
