LightSpeed is a point-of-sale system for retailers. It offers interactive solutions and management of retail concerns. Single or multi-store operations can be viewed from a streamlined interface. Inventory, purchasing, and other backend operations can be handled through LightSpeed as well. Developers must pay to register for API access and documentation.
The LightSpeed API allows developers to build on LightSpeed's retail platform, one designed to mimic the experience of walking into an Apple bricks and mortar store. The platform also helps stores sell online. Developers can add loyalty programs, integration with enterprise-resource-planning systems, and build mobile sales dashboards. More information is available through its LDX, the LightSpeed Developer Exchange, that opens up the program and website.
