Zynstra enables retailers to deliver superior customer and employee experiences through faster innovation and radically reduces cost to serve in-store. Purpose built for the edge, our powerful software optimizes existing store technology and enables digital transformation. Zynstra virtualizes back and front office store technology, with intelligent automation to deliver software defined stores.

Retail stores have a complex collection of legacy IT systems that have built up over time. With each device running its own software across multiple stores downtime is common and maintenance becomes expensive, not to mention a barrier to innovation. By decoupling your EXISTING hardware from the software, Zynstra frees up the ability to run multiple workloads across any device in store – delivering maximum flexibility and enabling digital transformation of your store.

  • Zynstra Virtualized Store
    Zynstra virtualizes back and front office store technology, with intelligent automation to deliver software defined stores. It simplifies what would otherwise be complex IT tasks, while ensuring a consistent, secure IT environment in every store....

  • Retailers with legacy systems in-store running separate hardware, software and peripherals make it almost impossible to upgrade existing systems to meet the demands of today’s consumers. To solve this issue and help retailers drive a modernization path towards operational efficiency and innovation, Zynstra virtualizes back and front office store technology, with intelligent automation to deliver software defined stores.

    Our technology enables a controlled migration to a virtualized, thin client environment at a moderated pace dictated by the business, allowing retailers to choose which server, terminal, or workloads they need to move to a virtualized environment. And for store associates, the change is often invisible, avoiding expensive staff training costs.

  • Zynstra Virtualized POS
    Virtualized POS virtualizes your existing POS application onto a centrally managed server. By removing the POS application from the register retailers can run the latest software on old POS hardware, ensuring they get maximum ROI from store technology....

  • Virtualize your existing POS application onto a centrally managed store server - an existing one, or a new server of your choice. Your POS registers will run a lightweight 'in memory' operating system that is fully supported, PCI compliant and presents the POS application exactly as it appears and operates today.

    With the POS application operating on modern local, secure and resilient infrastructure, management and maintenance becomes quicker, easier and more cost effective. Transactional performance of the POS registers improves by up to 30% with Zynstra's POS virtualization solution, and the disks - the most common point of failure on the register - are no longer required, reducing maintenance costs and downtime.

    As an additional operations benefit, instead of managing and updating individual registers, IT can update them and apply patches from the centre, with validation, automation and rollback - ensuring the most important patches are applied with a 100% success rate.

  • Virtualized POS Tablet
    Deliver a virtualized, PCI compliant mobile POS tablet in-store. Reduce lines, increase sales and improve customer experience....

  • Zynstra’s Virtualized POS Tablet solution virtualizes the combination of POS application software and operating system on a standard server. Virtualization removes the POS application from the edge device and peripheral interaction is no longer possible. A Linux operating system is run on a POS tablet with sufficient software to re-connect all required peripherals to the new virtualized POS application. The software interacts with the user through the screen of the tablet, presenting the POS application as it appears on fixed POS terminals, adjusted for form factor considerations. This means that retailers do not have to buy dedicated POS tablet software, but can virtualize existing software and utilize it through tablet implementations. This maximizes the ROI from past POS investments, reduces the IT bill of materials, and minimizes staff training costs.
  • Zynstra Virtualized Self-Checkout
    Virtualized Self-Checkout (SCO) virtualizes the SCO software and operating system onto a centrally managed server. By removing the POS application from the SCO machine retailers can run the latest software on old SCO hardware, ensuring maximum ROI.
    ...

  • With the self-checkout (SCO) application operating on modern local, secure and resilient infrastructure, Zynstra Virtualized Self-Checkout provides a flexible infrastructure for the optimization of SCO investment. Management and maintenance becomes quicker, easier and more cost effective and enhanced security is applied.

    Zynstra’s Virtualized Self-Checkout solution virtualizes the combination of SCO application software and operating system on a standard server. Virtualization removes the SCO application from the edge device and peripheral interaction is no longer possible. A Linux operating system is run on a SCO with sufficient software to re-connect all required peripherals to the new virtualized POS application. The software interacts with the user through the screen of the SCO, presenting the application as it appeared before virtualization. This maximizes the ROI from past SCO investments, reduces the IT bill of materials, and minimizes staff training costs.
