POS Software That Makes Good Decisions About Your Clientele
You hear so much miserable news about the economy that you just look for a hole to hide in. It has been a long time since America’s small retailers had to face this economic pressure. As a small retailer, there are steps to take that will ease the pain of a recession and that is good inventory control. After reading most of the retail journals, it sounds like most of the purchasing decisions are going to be so basic that if it isn’t black or white, it won’t be carried. Now is not the time to bring in assortments that don’t fit your base business model. Do your department/class comparatives and make sure the dollar value of each department is in line with the revenue contribution. The pressure is also on your vendors to perform well and now is a good time to make sure they are doing their best to help you promote their products, give you good terms and better margins. Your POS software should give you all the information needed to make the good, tough and informed decisions you need to help weather the recession storm.
There isn’t anything new in retail store technology that is so innovative that it guarantees you retail success in 2008. Most retail systems are last year’s model with a different ribbon and a new name. I feel good about where ProphetLine is and where we are going. ProphetLine POS Software is so fully integrated and feature inclusive, you can run a specialty retail store and never need another product. I know our product development this year is in line with what retailers need to get through this tough period and stay strong until the economy is back on the upswing. If you are in the market for POS software tools to help you improve your business processes, now is the time to start.
