We love these customer and store friendly features :
For the customer
- Product lookup
Create a convenient shopping experience with a self service information kiosk that provides instant product assistance in scanning and looking up an item’s price, colour, size and count availability.
- Multiple methods of payment
Welcome customers to spread their payment and avoid them leaving empty handed, by offering multiple methods of payment such as cash and debit/credit cards, or gift vouchers and store cards; several different payment types can be used in one transaction.
- Shop now, take home later
Your customers can always treat themselves to a purchase in your store if you give them the chance to pay by instalments. They leave a deposit, pay off the item later and then take it home. This is particularly popular across the international retail industry.
- Store cards
Get to know your customers and create a comprehensive database with the well-loved store card that allows customers to purchase items on account and pay later. Not only is this a great way to maintain your customer base, but you can also use captured details for targeted marketing.
- Loyalty scheme
Set up your own customer loyalty scheme and reward your best customers with discounts or vouchers that will keep them coming back and feeling good about your store.
For the store
Improve your staff’s service level and increase sales by displaying on-screen messages of complimentary products while they serve customers.
- Gift vouchers and credit notes
Print vouchers and credit notes in-store; each one is generated with a unique, secure barcode so it can’t be re-used or forged.
- On the spot price adjustments
Re-price a customer’s purchase and record the seller and reason why, all while serving them at the till and without delaying the transaction.
- Orders & reservations
An item not in stock? No worries, on behalf of your customer you can request an item to be specifically sent to your store or you can reserve an item once the next delivery arrives. When the item comes in your system will alert and provide you with the customer’s details.
