Benefits

Promotions are the mechanism for clearing these slow movers and it is better to recover the funds at low margin or even cost and buy faster movers. The promotional offers allow all sorts of marketing possibilities that would be hard to administer on a conventional till, and again their effectiveness can be monitored, did they sell more or did they clear stock, or was I just giving away more money. Multibuys , mix and match, and other promotions are carried out automatically Due to the changing ranges offered by suppliers it is important to clear the old ranges before the end of the season, which we can now identify these items for price reductions or promotions, else we are left storing old stock until next year. The promotion features and the customer information collected mean we can set up more suitable deals but also monitor their performance whilst still active.

Faqs

ARE MY PROMOTIONS WORKING OR JUST SELLING FOR NO BENEFIT? Promotions have numbered schemes and therefore all sales that relate to them can be collected and accumulated against them. This is good because they can be involving more than one product. Promotional vouchers can be taken as product price or tender reductions and counted accordingly. Products can be set to record say post code details for later analysis too. All promotions are recorded in against groups and readings.

ARE MY DISCOUNTS GIVEN WORKING OR JUST SELLING FOR NO BENEFIT? Discounts are given at line or tender level and as such get recorded on the sale line. When a discount is given on total sale it will be apportioned across the lines sold proportional to the sales value. All discounts are recorded in total in groups reports and readings
