Our story

We're All About Specialty Retail

Since 1992, Runit Systems has worked hand-in-hand with specialty retailers, first in New York city, and ultimately around the world, to develop and deliver the industry's fastest, most effective and easy-to-use point-of-sale system. Through many evolutions and more than two decades of learning from our merchant users, we continue to deliver a fully integrated retail management system specifically for the independent specialty retailer, whether a single store or sixty. What's more, Runit's RealTime Cloud POS gives you access to the latest advances in technology on a surprisingly affordable subscription basis, so you don't have to choose between managing your business and making your budget.
An early pioneer in cloud POS for specialty retailers, we continue to innovate today.
We were the first in the industry to see the potential of Windows-based point-of-sale software. In 1995, we introduced the touchscreen interface to the specialty retail industry with the release of the Microsoft Windows-based Runit Retail Software Suite.
In January 2001, we took that end-user-friendly approach a step further with the launch of the first hosted POS for specialty retailers -- Runit RealTime. Once again, we charted a course that many in retail technology have now followed, by facilitating centrally-managed data and operations in real-time. Our innovations have allowed independent retailers to reap the rewards of a simple, cost-effective and comprehensive retail system minus traditional upfront investments in software and hardware, as well as maintenance and staffing costs.
Back in 2001, we were only getting started. With our 2013 introductions of full-featured iPad and iPod POS options, and power-packed, gorgeous eReceipts like no other, the creative juices continue to flow. Stay tuned for more exciting developments.
Runit RealTime lets you, the retailer, conduct and control your business from anywhere, so you can make immediate and impactful decisions.
The flexibility afforded the specialty retailer by Runit knows no limits. For example, the days of lugging an entire register to an event, or settling for a calculator and a cash-box are over. Many of our sports merchants, for example, regularly bring Runit RealTime to the sporting events they attend, selling from a laptop, iPad or iPod, as if they are back at the stores. Their records and inventory are kept up-to-date, even though they or their staff may be far from home. And, since Runit RealTime does not place complex hardware requirements on the user, it's easy to run Runit on hardware you already own.
No commitment required, yet 95%+ merchant retention over 5+ years
Having blazed a trail in the "cloud" since 2001, Runit RealTime has become a leading provider of hosted POS to specialty retailers, with more than 5000 retailers globally running their business in the security of the Runit Cloud each day.
Step up to the Runit Cloud, and benefit from the wisdom and ever-expanding knowledge base built from supporting merchants throughout the United States (including Hawaii), Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Australia.
From our headquarters in the heart of New York City's Fashion District, our staffs of Sales, Support, Configuration, Development and Operations professionals are ready to help you every step of the way.
