Your retail employee : Sir, we have a problem with our Retail POS System, we need help

You (Proprietor / Owner) : Hmmmm, let me call the salesperson who gave us this retail POS System and see how he can help

(you call the salesperson on his mobile phone and the following could be the responses)

The call generally ends with a pledge and a promise and lacks any assurance of results and resolutions

Retail mix – “Product – Price – Place – Promotion”

The above 4 components are most important for a retailer. Almost every retailer uses permutations and combinations of the above to manage their everyday business. But successful retailers do a little different -

Successful Retail mix – “Product – Price – Place – Promotion – POS – Profit

POS is a very important component and complement to any retail business. It manages all the 4P’s and delivers the much needed P – Profit. Thus, choosing the right POS is very critical as it becomes the fulcrum to controlling all business operations.

‘Try before you Buy’ – Always

Consumer buying behavior is changing and shoppers are coming of age. It is seen with their demand to ‘touch, feel and experience’ any product before they buy

Evidently retailers are investing hugely in delivering the pre-sales experience to their prospects and customers. The demand from shoppers is such overwhelming that even some e-tailers are pulling up their socks and going an extra mile to enable their customers to ‘try before they buy’  and deliver the in-store experience at customers’ door steps

We would like to reciprocate the favor to our beloved retailers, well we have already begun

True D’light – set-up and served in a day

D V Raj Sekhar and his family run 4 retail businesses. D’light Mobiles, a multi-brand mobile store, being one among them.

He had been using an accounting software to run his operations for all these businesses. D’light mobiles was his latest venture and he wanted to run it more efficiently, since his existing software had limitations:

  • It supported only Single-based user
  • The user has to be in the store to access the software
  • Store information was not available to him at an instant
  • Did not have Business Alerts and notifications
