Intelligent Retail EPoS Systems from Intelligent Retail
The Pack Lane Wool website relies on an EPoS system suplied by Intelligent Retail. This UK based software development company creates EPoS and Ecommerce software which go together with hardware to create a state of the art EPoS system for small, independent retailers.
So what is an EPoS system?
An EPoS system (Electronic Point of Sale System) is the marriage of hardware with software to create an electronic shop till system which offers a large array of benefits to retail shop owners. A modern EPoS system offers multichannel selling capabilities, which means that sales can be made not only through the shop till but also through an ecommerce enabled website and other selling channels such as Ebay, Amazon and Google Products.
The Connect EPoS system from Intelligent Retail takes the idea of a modern multichannels EPoS system even further. Connect has an integrated stock control system which feeds all available channels, this means that all sales come back to the shop till and each sale decrements the stock tree - no more duplicate sales because you have the same product for sale on your website and in the shop... sell something on one channel and it is automatically removed from all others so you never get into that embarrasing situation where you can't supply that product you thought you had just sold!
The Connect EPoS system also allows 'drag and drop' integration into Ebay and Amazon (currently in testing 10/05/2011), which means listing on these external selling channels is as easy as possible. Infact once products are set up in the system they can be sold on all integrated channels at once - a great way to sell redundant stock!
The Intelligent Retail Connect EPoS software system also offers direct integration into a number of accounting packages, which means end of year accounting becomes a breeze. Together with the patented 'black box' system used to populate products for certain retail types (like greetings cards) this means that actually running the business online becomes simplicity itself.
