Touchretail’s customer portfolio ranges from retailers with over 1,000 employees to the independent family business, and they bring the same ethic and attitude to every customer – supplying first class retail solutions, renowned software support and incredible value.

Touchretail are using Sharp-Shooter for Silverlight to develop a new Reporting Module, which is being marketed to both new and existing customers.


The Reporting Module has been developed to be able to run on data from our existing retail systems, and also to work with the new Inventory System that Touchretail are developing for 2012 release. The advantage for their customers is that it provides a latest generation reporting tool that can be used with their existing system and also with the next generation system.

Touchretail were looking for a reputable product that would work well with Silverlight, enable fast report design, and work well for browser-based reports. Product reviews by other developers, and the fact that Sharp-Shooter was developed specifically for Silverlight were also important in their decision making.


Touchretail were able to develop their new Reporting Module in a short space of time, and they liked the straightforward report designer. Stu Francis, Technical Development Director at Touchretail comments: "The existing systems have several types of data and reports and the new Sharp-Shooter Reporting Module enables us to consolidate all the information and have a single unified reporting schema."

"The Perpetuum product has enabled our customers to extend the life of their existing Touchretail system, while planning for their next generation reporting systems – which will also use Perpetuum’s SharpShooter Reports.Silverlight."
