It is entirely possible to just use the basic functions on your inventory and POS software in order to run your business, but if you have the right kind of system, like PROFITsystems, a HighJump product, then you can mine all of that freely available data and put it into a model that will help you grow your company exponentially. To be honest, the fact that more people aren’t taking advantage of the significant amount of information available to them is positively baffling.
Depending on your retail POS software, you may have a wealth of data about your customers that you are not necessarily getting unless you know to look for it. That’s why many modern retail POS systems can track that data for you and put it into reports.
For example, isn’t it important to know what items are selling the best at a given time? How about what sort of demographics your primary customers fit into? How about what kinds of items might be enjoyed by the person in front of you so that you’re better able to make recommendations and increase the value of every sale? With PROFITsystems, all of this is possible.
That is on top of being able to store marketing information, see up-to-date reports on sales, and even keep track of your business’s sales history, so that it is easier to process returns and exchanges as well as keep track of layaways and installment accounts as necessary. The right inventory and POS software makes all of this easy to do.
Other than the obvious benefits above, another way that the right POS software can proffer positive results is by making it simpler for employees to enter information, and to ensure that the data being entered is correct, leading to less loss as a result of human error and higher efficiency among staff.
And if that still wasn’t enough, PROFITsystems features a robust security system that can reduce shrink and increase the safety of important customer data that might otherwise be compromised by any number of methods left open in other software.Finally, a guided sales process, one-screen customer data entry, and the ability to quickly and accurately generate sales quotes means that you can be sure to reduce the incidence of human error and improve the performance of both current and new employees.
It is possible to use only the basic functions of any business system, but when you employ the full range of options given to you by our inventory and POS software, you’ll be able to make the choices that will help your business soar.
