Features and Benefits of Our EPOS Systems

Adding products

New EPOS systems are loaded with 50,000 recent and popular products. For existing systems, you can add products through the front till system, by scanning the product barcode. New items delivered from your supplier come with an invoice which enables you to add all products automatically. Prior to the pallet arrival of new products, you will have a purchase order via the EPOS system and the supplier gives the barcode, if the barcode is already in your system.

Efficient Inventory Stock Management

Our EPOS systems will help you to control and manage your inventory and save you time. Stock levels are automatically calculated, replacing the need for manual stock-taking. When a product item is scanned at checkout, that item is automatically taken from the stock levels, so at any time you can see and access the accurate, real-time stock levels by looking at the system. The software will inform you if you are low on stock and need to purchase from your supplier.

Automatic Stock Reordering

The software can be set to automatically reorder from suppliers when you reach a specified stock level. When you set up and reach a minimum stock level, the EPOS system raises a purchase order automatically which you can email to the supplier. Or purchase orders can be generated for you to take to the supplier.

Price Changes

With some suppliers, new products and price changes can be downloaded automatically into your local system, e.g. Bookers, Nisa, Costcutters.

Checkout

At checkout, each product is scanned with a barcode scanner. With alcohol,  the EPOS system flags to ask the customer for ID. When a product is scanned, the product information is displayed on screen. If the product is on offer, it is displayed to the cashier and customer. The customer can see the last item scanned and a running total. On the latest modern EPOS systems, the customer can see the same information as the cashier. When all items are scanned, the subtotal is displayed and the customer can pay by card or cash. For cash, all money note denominations are shown as icons on the cashier’s touchscreen, or they can enter an exact amount with the keypad. The EPOS system will show the change that the cashier needs to give to the customer. A receipt is then printed. The receipt will show items, cost and VAT breakdown.

Credit Card Terminals and Payment Systems

​Techcube uses leading UK card payment systems and has expertise in integrating EPOS systems with payment gateways for fast and secure payments.

Payments are made easier with card payment systems and credit card machines that are secure, fast and offer flexible payment options. We guarantee a cheaper % commission rate, so you save money immediately.

Payment gateways integrate with any UK bank. The payment systems accept all major cards and other payment methods including mobile wallets, chip and PIN, contactless payments and QR codes. Allows split payments across cards and cash. Choose from integrated Verifone terminals or countertop, mobile and portable card terminals. Payment systems can also be integrated with E-commerce if you already sell online or plan to in the future.

Special Offers and Discounts

This EPOS module is called Promotions and there are three types of offer: multibuy, buy one get one free type offers, and price reduction. For example, 3 types of wine, any 3 for £10. You can define in the software when to start and end promotion so you do not have to manually end the offer. Suppliers run offers from time to time and this can be reflected in your business. More promotions equates to higher footfall and profit. E.g. Black Friday deals bring in more footfall. Offers on one product, will bring customers into the store and  they will also buy other items.

Detailed reports

Comprehensive reporting is available to help you manage and control your business. Reports include:

  • Profit and loss can be viewed by time period, department, e.g. alcohol or by individual product.
  • Profitable lines and products.
  • Stock reports.
  • Customer returns, damaged items and expired product reports.
  • User clock in and clock out.
  • Voided products and reasons for the void.
  • Purchase history down to the item level and products can be tracked from purchase from supplier until sold or missing.
  • Individual invoices.
  • Hourly sales report – analyse this on a monthly basis to see busy times of day so you can allocate more or fewer staff. In quiet periods you can reduce the number of staff, saving on wages.

 

Documentation

A purchase order once confirmed becomes a goods received note (GRN). With the GRN you can check the supplier’s delivery and cross check all items are correct. You can then convert the GRN into a purchase invoice. When the purchase invoice is finalised, stock will be updated in the EPOS system, as well as updates to the product retail price.

Hardware and Accessories

EPOS terminal touchscreen.

Back Office Software

Management software can be used on both laptops and desktop computers, and used with an A4 laser printer and a single line barcode scanner. Management can access everything. and run reports. Connected to local area network (LAN).

Head Office Software

The EPOS Head Office software is for businesses with multiple branches. Everything can be controlled and monitored for every branch from your head office. For example price changes will be reflected at the end user till.

System Requirements

Windows 7 or later, minimum 2GB RAM, minimum 80GB hard disk space and decent processor.

CCTV Integration

For security and to prevent theft, EPOS systems can be integrated with CCTV installation, so at any time you can view transactions. Each till will have a CCTV camera and all scanned products will be recorded and tracked. On the left side of the CCTV footage there is the image, while on the right is the product name and price. Our Artificial Intelligence (AI) facial recognition CCTV systems and cameras capture real-time images of faces which quickly identifies individuals, even in crowded areas, to offer the highest form of security for your business.

Other Benefits of EPOS Systems

Speed of Transactions and Loyal Customers

A smooth and fast checkout transaction results in a pleasant experience for customers, bringing them back again. Accuracy, (see below), ensures that you give the correct change and don’t inadvertently overcharge customers. Faster transactions equate to fewer people queuing and this helps encourage repeat customers and higher profits.

Transaction Accuracy

With a supermarket, for example, all the products are added to the system with prices, so when the customer checks out, the products are scanned and there is complete accuracy. With Avery Scales, products like meat are weighed and a label is printed and scanned at checkout. When the customer pays, there are buttons on the touch screen monitor for money note denominations, e.g. £20, that are pressed and the change to be given is automatically calculated.

Staff Transparency

Electronic point of sale systems allow monitoring of staff and each transaction that they process at the tills. Access detailed reports and have visibility of staff sales figures, who sold the most and highlighting staff whose performance needs improvement.

Less Paperwork

Product and sales data is stored on a computer and this means less reliability on manual paperwork to keep track of things, increasing accuracy and reducing impact on the environment.
