Why Your Sporting Goods Store Needs a Comprehensive Point-of-Sale System
by Casey Albert
Retail Control Systems offers NCR Counterpoint, a comprehensive and robust point-of-sale system that allows sporting goods retailers to run their businesses more easily and efficiently. Here are just 5 reasons you should consider making the switch to a comprehensive point-of-sale system, like NCR Counterpoint:
Reason Number 1
NCR’s purchasing and inventory control capabilities allow your store to seamlessly manage a huge range of inventory—from roller skates and hockey sticks to basketballs and golf clubs—so you have all the information you need to maximize your sales and stock.
The 2nd Reason
Serial number tracking provides an all-inclusive record of each product so that you and your staff can easily check which items are in-stock, which items are on backorder, and when an item’s warranty will expire. This detailed product information enables store personnel to make informed recommendations to customers—meaning your customers will have a quicker and more-improved shopping experience.
Here comes #3
NCR Counterpoint also easily allows merchants to monitor customer buying preferences so that they can create tailored customer loyalty programs and e-mail promotions to strengthen customer relationships and boost sales.
With NCR Counterpoint, integrating your store’s brick-and-mortar activities with your online sales is a breeze. Customers or in-store personnel can quickly and easily place an order online, while your store’s inventory is instantly adjusted to reflect the sale. In short, you will know exactly what your inventory looks like at any point in time—both in-store and online.
…and Number 5
NCR Counterpoint enables managers to monitor the productivity of store employees and departments by items- and dollars-sold, which means calculating sales commissions is no longer a tedious task for management.
