Retail Express offers some of the industry’s most powerful yet exceedingly easy to use franchise POS and stock control software.

A wide range of adopters, including franchise retail groups, have reaped massive rewards since making the switch to Retail Express.

POS software for franchises

A franchise is defined as a business model that involves the license of business trademarks and methods to entrepreneurs. There are two forms of franchising:

- Product or trade name franchising, which involves the right to use the trademark or name of an existing business

- Business format franchising, which involves the setup of an arrangement between franchisee and franchiser, and involves an ongoing business relationship between the two

Whether the franchisee and franchiser need frequent meetings and correspondences or not, POS solutions can be extremely helpful for those engaged in either type of franchising business.

In business circles, setting up a franchise business can be an excellent way of striking a balance between wanting to be their own boss and taking on the risk associated with entrepreneurial ventures. Whatever the venture, Retail Express’ POS software can help provide both franchisers and franchisees with the tools they need to succeed and meet their objectives while keeping in mind those of their partners.

1: Retail Express maintains a platform that is tailor-made for the franchise model, most especially the second type of franchising. It respects the needs of both franchisers and franchisees. It can help group head franchisers maintain the information flow between them and their franchisees, while also allowing the franchisee the flexibility it needs to maintain his or her independence from the franchiser.

2: Retail Express POS powerful software solution also gives franchisers the ability to manage product and merchandising should they require this capability. Such maintenance is essential to maintain consistent product information across the board. Franchisers can, for instance, maintain product information at their level, and then make this information available to franchisees in real-time, allowing for easy synchronization and instantaneous flow of key information between these partners.

3: Head offices can obtain and maintain the capacity to acquire live and aggregated reports and other such information from franchisees as they require, via a consolidated group reporting feature.

Despite the fact that franchisees always maintain operational independence, head offices can still easily access this data as they need to. This not only eases flow of information but also helps reduce administration time – in many cases significantly so – for each franchisee, which helps streamline operations. These are just some of the benefits that make Retail Express POS retail solutions the ideal choice for both franchisers and franchisees.
