Small retailers sell a variety of items from different sources. A POS system helps you organize your inventory and make smart business decisions. We understand that every small retail store has unique needs. That’s why National Retail Solutions designed the POS+ point of sale system to work with many kinds of businesses.
While big chain stores have a one-size-fits-all approach, community businesses understand their unique individual customers. The POS+ lets you meet your customers’ needs with the same technology that major chains have, and it’s much more than just a cash register for a small retail store. Compete with the big box stores by utilizing all of the savvy business tools available on a retail POS system.
Running a discount department store involves plenty of returns. If a customer wants a refund on multiple items, you have to add them all up on a cash register. With POS+, you can use the register’s Refund Mode to handle returns. When you enter Refund Mode, you can scan the returned items or enter their codes to calculate the total. Then, you can choose whether you want to refund money using cash or card.
Make every item you sell scannable using a label printer. That way, even if you sell multiple items together, you can process your returns quickly.
Small electronics stores have plenty of rivals to deal with. You have to sell the most appealing items at a reasonable price, but how can you know which items sell the most if you can’t keep track?
The POS+ tracks sales and inventory numbers for you. Use it to count the inventory left of every item and see how fast different products are selling. The Store Statistics screen tells you which departments earn you the most money. Learn what kinds of electronics your customers buy the most so you can focus on items that are selling, gain an advantage over your competitors, and keep up with bigger electronics retailers.
Retail tobacco stores sell so much more than just cigarettes. They usually have to work with numerous vendors to get the different kinds of products they stock. Fortunately, the Vendors menu in the POS+ helps you record your purchases and suppliers. The POS+ then takes your spending and subtracts it from your earnings to show you your total profit. Our integrated scale lets you weigh loose-leaf tobacco without extra steps. It then works directly with the system to determine the price of the weighed item.
When you specialize in a certain type of product, you have different departments than a general store. However, you still need to see which departments and products sell better than others so that you know what to stock. The POS+ system lets you create your own item categories in the pricebook. When you add a new product to your system, you can choose which of your custom departments to put it in. Once you add your departments to the pricebook, you can see trends on the Store Statistics screen.
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.
