Of course, everyone is fully aware that software for your business is not cheap. But at the same time, the prices that you are paying for much of your inventory may not be so cheap either. Just as you will not sacrifice items that sell well in your store due to costs, you should not sacrifice software that will allow you ultimate control just because of costs. There are plenty of ways to save money, which can all be discovered with the use of retail EPOS software. The money you save just in a single month with the use of the software can easily cover the expense.
Tracking Price Changes
Using the benefits of retail EPOS software you can quickly and easily start looking at the larger picture. What you might not readily realize is using this software you can easily see any price changes that are performed, track who does the changes, and also track how often this is done. Additionally it can allow you to see the average number of refunds that are conducted and all information pertaining to the refunds. While this might seem like trivial information, it can be quite helpful in working with you to control the actual amounts of money that you are losing due to price changes as well as refunds.
Selling vs. Shrinkage
Other information that you will be able to find is how much merchandise you are really selling. This can allow you to track your inventory compared to the inventory that is listed in the EPOS software. This is quite helpful for determining if you have a theft problem of some sort, and if you do just how extensive it really is. This can be a huge help in businesses that tend to have high rates of theft, whether from shoplifting or employee theft. Just imagine the savings that you can get from reducing this category.
The ability to easily determine the exact amount of stock shrinkage is absolutely critical to success. Many experienced business owners will all agree that stock shrinkage is a huge problem; other business owners may discount the importance of ensuring that stock levels are proper. However, if you start to see the actual amount of money you are losing this way, especially when combined to unauthorized price reductions, and even excessive refunds you may see hundreds of dollars each month wasted.
Taking Money to the Bank
The average business owner is always looking for ways to save money in their business and increase profits. If you have the opportunity to increase your profits, you are much more likely to take advantage of it, rather than allowing the money to still be wasted. Take control over all of your financial aspects and start making your profits rise as you regain complete control over all aspects of your finances.
