Benefits of our Trader ePOS software
Significantly reduce the time spent processing new sales
Electronic point of sale software removes the manual, often handwritten elements of your sales and ordering processes by automatically bringing together information relating to your products and customers at the point of a customer purchasing goods from you.
How much time do you spend manually writing out sales order dockets or pricing up the total of orders on a calculator. ePOS software like Trader takes away all of those processes into one easy to use screen.
Once all items have been added to an order, the software moves through to take payment from your customer, providing the necessary receipts and invoices along the way.
Instant access to customer, product and pricing information at the counter
For many merchants, customer and product pricing information is sat on shelves in catalogues or folders.
One of the key benefits of ePOS software like Trader, is that all information relating to your customers, products and pricing is stored centrally in one place, which can be viewed at the counter when it is needed the most.
Agreed customer discounts, credit limits, product margins and associated products can therefore be viewed as a sale is being made, providing you with more control and upsell opportunities.
Better visibility of sales performance and control of sales margins
Trader allows you to quickly report on sales performance by customer, product or staff member at any point in time.
The increase in information provided by a point of sale system ultimately allows you to proactively protect your sales margins. Take decisions on discounts offered and restrict limits to users on the amount of discount which can be offered to customers.
Sales can be accredited to credit or cash customers. This additional level of control provided by ePOS software allows you to check the current status of a credit account before handing over more goods. For example what is their credit limit? Did they honour the last agreement you made with them?
Manage special customer promotions
Trader ePOS software contains a dedicated Promotions module which allows you to easily create and manage special timebound promotions for certain products.
Promotions such as 'Buy One, Get One Free' or discounts on multiple product purchases can be setup and automatically applied at the counter when the relevant criteria has been met.
Not only does this save the time and effort of manually calculating discounts but it allows you to measure and compare the popularity of one promotion to another.
