ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill., Oct. 22, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Q4 Mobile, a division of Q4 Systems Corporation (OTCQB:QFOR) ("Q4"), a SMAC (Social/Mobile/Analytics/Cloud) based vertical platform company that develops and implements mission-critical cloud-based solutions, today announced the implementation of its advanced cloud-based Retail platform, RetailSphereTM, with 4G Wireless, a large Verizon Wireless Premium Retailer with over 120 store locations throughout California and Nevada.
Implementation of Q4's RetailSphere platform will enable 4G Wireless to improve internal and external communications among the chain of stores. RetailSphere encompasses a comprehensive set of in-store retail, e-commerce, mobile and social technologies. It will enable 4G Wireless to systematize its backoffice operations through a Corporate Intranet, Content Management System, Customer Relationship Management System, Learning Management System and Loyalty Tracking.

Ed Baryluk, VP of Sales for Q4 commented, "Retailers such as 4G Wireless will benefit from the competitive advantages that can be derived from the cloud-based RetailSphere platform. Savings in terms of Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) can accrue from Day 1, while the system provides the elasticity of the cloud to scale as 4G expands its footprint. Our continuing investment in R&D to innovate and build upon the RetailSphere platform with exciting features will help our retail clients improve key metrics relative to customer satisfaction and financial performance. Gartner predicts the market size for e-commerce and cloud-based retail software such as RetailSphere will be at least $3 billion by 2013. This represents a significant market opportunity for Q4 Mobile."
