Your butcher shop or meat market gives the community a place to buy important ingredients. You might even have meats unique to your culture that can’t be found anywhere else in the neighborhood. To keep on providing your neighbors with their favorite meats, you need to keep up with the technology used at big grocery stores. National Retail Solutions’ point of sale (POS) system gives meat markets an all-in-one cash register and store management tools, so you can stay authentic while still providing customers with a modern shopping experience.
You probably get your meat and supplies from a variety of sources. When you buy from so many vendors, it can be hard to see where you spend your money. Our system lets you record the items you buy from vendors so you can see how much you are spending with each vendor over time. The POS+ does all the math for you so you can have accurate records. You can see which vendors work with you the most so you can understand how to prioritize relationships, and when it may be time to negotiate!
When you only have a cash register, you have to use multiple machines to count meat prices. If you sell your meat by weight, you have to go back and forth from the register to the scale. You can add a scale or belt scanner/scale combo to our POS+ equipment bundle so you can weigh and price your meat during check-out. Once you set a price per pound, the scale will do the math for you and add the cost to the sale total. The system can also read labels from a label-printing scale you already own. This way, you can weigh your products wherever it makes the most sense and then ring them up quickly at the POS.
Your customers want the freshest meat they can get. The software features that come with the POS+ will help you understand your customers’ preferences so you can always make sure to have the freshest, best meats available. The inventory and store statistics features on the POS+ show you when you need to buy more product, and tell you which product categories sell the best.
Customers on a budget sometimes feel like they have to shop at bigger stores to get discounts. The POS+ lets you create your own in-store promotions and automatically adds discounted amounts during checkouts. If you sell packaged grocery items in addition to meat, you can offer sales through the BR Club loyalty program, which comes free with every POS+ system. When a customer saves money, we pay it back to you within 24 hours. BR Club looks just as professional as the loyalty programs at big stores, so you can make your items more affordable for your community without losing money.
Studies show that 80% of consumers prefer to use card payments for everyday purchases. Our credit card processing machine accepts ALL forms of card payments and integrates seamlessly with the NRS POS+. The credit card reader also accepts EBT payments for items that you select in the POS as being eligible for EBT. This cohesive interaction between the POS+ and the credit card processors’ EBT capabilities is not offered by most POS companies.
