The platform is flexibily designed in order to make new integrations, embedding inside other apps and extending with new features easy.
The platform's ability to grow and interface with other systems is why we call it FutureProof. Built on a modern cloud architecture and offering flexible APIs the platform can be connected to a variety of external systems, including point of sale, loyalty, back office, analytics and marketing software. The shopper and staff apps can also be extended with custom features which can be developed using standard web technologies by a retailer's own team.
Retailers who have existing apps have three choices when deploying a FutureProof white-label:
Many new features can be added by retailers or third parties via the custom screen API. New features will appear as side menu options in the shopper application and are implemented via mobile web technologies. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for a technical discussion.
The FutureProof platform arranges direct payment between customer and merchant via a growing list of payment partners that currently includes Stripe, Braintree and WorldPay. All our payment partners provide PCI Level 1 security and, through tokenization, keep both the merchant and FutureProof outside of PCI scope.
Merchants can pick the payment partner they prefer, and FutureProof integrates new partners in response to merchants' requests. FutureProof never takes a spif or other incentive from payment partners.
FutureProof is compatible with any POS and back office system that allows for the exporting of product information and the importing of transaction data (pretty much all). A retailer's IT can provide the product information in any format and FutureProof will handle the translation. Similarly, FutureProof will provide transaction data back to a retailer's IT group in the format of their choice - so unless a retailer has lost control over their core data their system will be compatible with FutureProof.
