Free Up Time and Money with a more Efficient and Innovative Online POS

No matter what type of store you have, administration issues can be time consuming and costly. However, hundreds of companies are cutting down time spent on administration and increasing their returns by using Retail Express’ online POS solutions. This is an intelligent POS system that drives sales growth and helps give unique insights into various sales metrics and business intelligence. Retail Express uses the cloud to offer a number of services that greatly reduces the time required to manage your business by giving users enhanced stock control, 24/7 live access and the security of a single central database. This means that you do not have to worry about backing up servers or installing software either. It is all managed by Retail Express.

Stock Control

The majority of current sales systems are nearly 20 to 30 years old, which can cost a company millions in unrealised profits and excess stock. Smarter stock control allows you to set minimum stock levels for automated stock re-orders and find which products are best sellers for additional re-orders. Other inventory features like fast product searches, historical purchase orders and bar code management allows you to oversee and manage all of these inputs with one screen in real time. This is a huge benefit that will save you both time and money. In comparison, if you are a business without a dedicated POS software solution, you will likely find it difficult to keep track of inventory, identify which products are your best sellers and when and searching for product availability in other stores.

Technology makes a Difference

If you currently have a database housed on location, you probably have issues with data sharing and moving information across computers and staff in other store locations. The old-style sharing technique of syncing daily or weekly is outdated and costs you money. Retail Express provides a solution that utilises a central database hosted at an $85 million Corporate Data Centre in Sydney. This data centre facility offers the benefit of significantly lower running costs, zero data corruption, makes software installation unnecessary and constant data backups. All of this comes with 24/7 server system monitoring services and on-site engineers which guarantee a 99.99% network uptime. With these benefits, can you actually afford not to have an automated retail POS system?

POS Interface

An automated retail POS system incorporates an integrated WebStore that makes selling online easier than ever. Every aspect of the store can be customised to a specific brand and identity, complete with your products and secure shopping cart. Once a sale is made online, order records are kept in a centralised reporting system with no need to manually re-enter customer orders. This easy to use system is designed for local businesses looking to expand online and will help increase total sales, store traffic and geographic reach.

Customers Come First

Retail Express offers a number of great features that will help you retain customers through branded loyalty cards, customer intelligence reporting and more comprehensive communication methods. A proper loyalty system will help improve store profitability through greater customer retention and repeat purchases. Retail Express’s powerful CRM will boost your business ahead of the competition by giving you the insight you need about your store and keeps your customers up to date on the latest news.

Simple Solution

Retail Express has become the popular choice amongst single store businesses because of their quality and easy to use product. This online retail software is hosted in a single location at a secure data facility, therefore no installation is required. With 24/7 monitoring and access to IT support, you do not have to worry about anything breaking down or being lost. Retail Express provides a clean interface that is easy to use and can be taught to sales staff within 15 minutes.
