POS software delivers optimum control
Syspro Point of Sale is the latest addition to the Syspro enterprise resource planning (ERP) system currently deployed in over 14,500 businesses worldwide. Built on a single source code for ease of integration, the POS software is designed to help retailers manage the entire business cycle from critical back-office functions to customer-facing sales, payments and returns.
"Syspro has a large number of smaller and mid-sized companies that, like Syspro, compete against multibillion-dollar competitors, yet grow and thrive because they offer better, specialized and/or unique capabilities," stated Brian Stein, Chief Executive Officer of Syspro USA. "Syspro is delivering a single-code, highly integratable enterprise software solution, versus trying to bolt on extensions like so many other ERP companies.
"It gives us better control of our own operations, and it similarly advantages our customers and partners. This is a great tool for companies who want to reap quality, control and margin benefits resulting from managing their own production through sales cycles."
Syspro stated the product features include a customizable touch-screen interface, off-site access with easy to manage security options, online and offline capabilities, multiple payment and loyalty card options, entry and pricing configurability, and inventory management. End-of-day or -shift processes, supply chain and in-transit stock functions, sales audit trails, inventory and customer balance queries, warranty and stock returns can also be tracked and managed using the web-based software.
According to the company, Syspro Point of Sale is adaptable across multiple channels, including e-commerce, mobile and brick-and-mortar environments. Built-in security includes comprehensive permission security and supervisor override controls. Businesses also have the option of integrating other Syspro ERP functions, including general ledger, accounts payable/receivable, sales and purchase orders, and inventory and contact management.
"This is about empowerment from a visibility, analysis and cost and cash-related decision-making standpoint," Stein said. "A high percentage of Syspro customers are both manufacturers and retailers, like Apple distributor Core Computer Business. We're simplifying the complexities involved in the entire order through sale cycle." Target markets for this and other Syspro products include manufacturers and distributors of electronics, machinery and equipment, food, medical device and other products.
The system was designed for enterprises that choose to independently manage all operations, from manufacturing and distribution down to the retail chain, the company said. Syspro offers a reseller program to sell, implement and support its products.
