In case your system is down, you can make sales by using your smartphone or tablet. It supports both Android and iOS.
4. Leveraging Your Inventory
One of the fundamental hurdles faced by retailers is the maintenance of their inventory. Using traditional methods to keep check of the stock causes a severe financial drain on your resources that could be better spent elsewhere. Using QuickBooks POS Multi-Store allows you to leverage your inventory and utilize resources efficiently.
You can do it by tracking packages using the shipping manager, track UPC codes, serial numbers, layaways, and sales orders.
Another key feature is real-time stock management. Every sale or purchase transaction gets reflected in your system instantly. You can pre-set your inventory levels; whenever an item is about to run short, you will get notified. This will allow you to generate a purchase order and replenish your stocks beforehand.
It also helps you analyze your sales data to create a predictive inventory and stock up precisely what your customers need—something that Walmart had already done, a move that earned them enormous profits.
5. Enhanced Customer Experience
QB POS Multi-Store integrates your customer’s information into the system at the time of purchase. This way, you can create personalized discount offers for your customers on their birthdays and other special occasions, offer loyalty discounts, and many more.
Flexible methods of payments, lesser time at checkouts, and always having what they want in stock and up to date – these are some other benefits that your customers enjoy when you go for retailing experience with QB POS Multi-Store.
6. QuickBooks Desktop Integration
With every transaction you make (sale or purchase), QB POS Multi-Store updates your books and keeps track of the financial data. This will allow you to eliminate errors, save time, manage your finances, and be better prepared while filing taxes. But at the end of the day, you need this data in your accounting software as well.
