Molton Brown in cloud-based PoS upgrade

Luxury beauty product brand Molton Brown is migrating its point of sale (PoS) and IT infrastructure to the cloud, as part of a move to improve its in-store customer experience.

The bath, body, and beauty products retailer, which was acquired by Japanese cosmetics giant Kao Corporation in 2005, is now working with OneView Commerce to refresh its systems in stores across the globe.

Tanay Taank, director of digital marketing, omni-commerce and sales applications at Molton Brown, said: "Replacing our legacy applications with OneView's hosted solution makes our journey toward digital transformation most efficient and economical.

"We'll be able to focus on delivering the best features for the business and not be distracted by IT infrastructure, software upgrades, and issue resolution, leaving the project team free to focus on our vision for retail."

The hosting agreement also provides application management and IT infrastructure support for Molton Brown, supporting the business's stores across the UK, Germany, Japan, Ireland, Jersey and the US.
