First Data™ Retail Solution helps single-store retailers streamline and better manage operations. It's an all-in-one solution that combines hardware, software, payment processing and support in one easy-to-use bundle. And with an integrated system, you can better manage inventory, track customers and process transactions. In the end, it's big-box capabilities at a small-business price.
Key benefits include:
Greater payment flexibility
Accept all major payment types, including rental and layaway programs.
Enhanced transaction processing
Bar code scanning, custom POS buttons and an easy-to-use cashier touch screen allow quicker transactions and shorter lines at checkout. Personalization is simple with easy-to-add quick cash tenders and shortcut keys. Best of all, the intuitive design significantly reduce cashier training time.
Automated inventory management
A robust array of inventory management features are designed to eliminate paper tracking and reduce mistakes. For instance, use automatic purchase orders to avoid "out of stock" situations. Easily manage all styles, each with several size and color combinations. And maintain knowledge and PO status of case and carton inventory items (i.e., carton vs. pack). Even remove multiple items from stock when selling one SKU (gift baskets, for example).
Customer marketing opportunities
Capture and use customer data to create effective marketing campaigns that target customers' preferences based on purchase histories (plus, fast customer look-up by last name, phone or membership card). Create loyalty programs and gift registries to generate more business, and utilize the solution to send newsletters, coupons, sales and new product announcements.
Enter markdowns and discounts to improve accuracy and ease of checkout, and put select or all items on sale or run special promotions.
Simplify every aspect of employee management with everything from a time-clock feature that tracks time and assists with scheduling to multiple theft prevention features that restrict employees' ability to perform discounts, no-sales, voids and price changes. You can also reward and retain employees by implementing commission plans and tracking top salespeople. Extensive management reporting includes 75 standard reports.
Easy to use technology
The solution is designed to be up and running quickly. Over-the-phone training allows you to ask questions as you become familiar with the system.
The built-tough hardware is retail tested for optimal performance in demanding locations.
