How does POS software enable businesses to provide their customers with better service in a variety of ways? Updating your business and software is easy enough to do, plus it enhances your productivity. But first, why should you upgrade from outdated electric registers and calculators, to a new and computerized method of doing business?
Price management across several stores is a challenge for small retailers. Customers often get frustrated when they find the same item at differing prices in different locations of the same company. Keeping your prices consistent across many stores is but one benefit. Additionally, identifying slow moving product makes it simple to implement price reductions. Markdowns and clearance sales are easy to update to your system and show across multiple locations at once.
From receiving product, to recording what has been sold at day's end, POS software tracks your products efficiently. Identifying shrink, tracking inventory, and pinpointing top selling items for one or multiple shops is easy to do when you don't have to rely on human memory. Automating these processes allows employees to assist the customer quickly, providing excellent customer service. Locating an item in another shop is a snap if inventories are kept in a centralized database. POS software can also notify you to generate orders based on any variety of factors, thus enabling associates to spend more time with customers. Giving inventory controls to your POS software lets your employees spend more time interacting with customers rather than hunting elusive products.
With the proper POS software, your customers will never realize that they had to wait at all. Bar code scanning ability speeds up your checkout times significantly, in addition to helping maintain accurate inventory levels. Automated credit or debit card processing, with security compliance integrated, creates confidence in your business. Customer management systems such as direct mailing databases, customer loyalty, coupons or preferred email notifications are easily handled and give a boost to your bottom line with repeat sales.
Appropriate POS software can help you discover who your top selling associates are, and determine exactly what is trending in which location. You can also process sales numbers based on factors that influence your business, and create reports that sync with your accounting software. Customizable POS software applications give you the control you seek over your business.
A good retail EPoS software system can save money in the long run, by automating many of the recurring processes that occur daily in business, thus freeing employees to focus more on the needs of the customer rather than on inventory tasks. Let your people focus on people, instead of tasks. It has been designed to provide fast, reliable, resilient processing and ensures store efficiency is optimised.
