Centralized Inventory and Information
Sales made at your store reduce the number of goods offered online. You don’t need to maintain inventory in two locations, and you won’t disappoint your customers by offering out-of-stock items. NCR Counterpoint gives you instant inventory visibility, item descriptions, pricing, availability, and quantities across all of your stores.
NCR Smart Alerts scans transaction history and instantly identifies anyone performing activities outside standard daily operating procedures such as excessive discounting, refunds or sales outside of normal business hours, and unusual returns or voided tickets. Be instantly alerted to potentially fraudulent situations, low inventory warnings, daily store operations, and changing sales figures to keep your store running smoothly.
Your business depends on your customers and you need to stay connected to sales activities that affect your customer service. Physical location is no longer a barrier between you, your customers, and your staff. Setup up loyalty programs and customize your marketing outreach to speak directly to your customer’s needs whether they are in the store or checking their email. You can also receive alerts about sales reps’ activity, including opening the store when the rep has logged into the system, a review of pending orders, and notifications of large sales or refunds to keep your sales on target and your customers happy.
NCR Counterpoint includes support for customer loyalty programs, allowing frequent customers to use points as tender. Create multiple loyalty programs, each with different rules for how customers earn and redeem points. Customers can enroll in a single loyalty program, earn points for each dollar spent or item purchased, and then spend those points at the point of sale, just like any other payment type.
