The deployment of Openbravo's point-of-sale system has been completed across the 280 branch locations of Norauto's French network. Norauto is the European leader in automotive repair and maintenance services. Franchisees are now being deployed.
Norauto, being a part of the Mobivia group, has been supporting motorists for nearly 50 years and currently has a total of 656 centers. Out of 656 centers, 407 are in France and the rest in Spain, Portugal, Belgium and Italy.
Norauto's major market, France, is the first in Europe to use Openbravo POS as the technological platform for omnichannel commerce.
The project's second phase will see the deployment of Openbravo in all Norauto centers outside of France, progressively expanding to include Spain, Portugal, Italy, and Belgium by 2022.
Norauto desired to replace its aging point-of-sale system, which was out of date and unable to satisfy the demands of omnichannel commerce.
Openbravo POS, a critical component of the Openbravo Commerce Cloud platform, was chosen by the firm for its entirely web-based point-of-sale solution. There was no need for additional hardware in the stores, as the platform is now operating on fixed terminals. Due to its adaptability, it is well-suited to Norauto's service-oriented business strategy.
Openbravo's open design facilitated interaction with the specialized software utilized in its workshops.
Additionally, Norauto noted how easily the Openbravo POS user interface could be customized to meet its company's unique design and usability needs.
"We chose Openbravo for its flexible POS solution that includes comprehensive functionality to move us towards omnichannel commerce and can be easily adapted to our business requirements. In addition, Openbravo has the resources and expertise to support our ambitious deployment."
