Retail overview

Retail demands that people can clearly see the prices they are expected to pay so they can continue to shop and buy more items in one outing.

Idealpos allows you to create labels for shelves and items, along with creating barcodes that can be scanned at the checkout. Other retail features include Gift Vouchers, Credit Notes, Refunds and more.

You can even create signs that utilise images of your products with pricing and description so your customers can see at a glance the items they are looking for and how they will cost.

Laybys

Laybys

Layby’s are used to give the customer a specified time period to pay a purchase off, before taking the goods home. The customer can make a deposit on the item, which will then be held in storage by the retailer until the goods have been totally paid off, or the customer cancels the layby.

Layby’s are most commonly used in the retail sector for goods that do not perish. You have the ability of setting the length of time customers can leave an item on Layby, and also how much deposit is required.

When items are put on Layby, the stock level for that item is reduced, and you can see which items are held in stock for sale, and which items are held in stock on Layby.

Gift Vouchers

Gift Vouchers

Gift Vouchers can be sold through Idealpos and redeemed at a later date which you can decide. Gift vouchers enable you to keep track of purchased vouchers in case of loss or theft. Gift vouchers can be linked to your custom stationary, gift cards or Idealpos can print the voucher out of the receipt printer.

All Gift Vouchers are tracked and monitored through Idealpos, making it easy to replace a lost Gift Voucher.

Each time a Gift Voucher is used, the amount of the sale will be deducted from the original voucher, and a new voucher will be printed with the remaining balance. The expiry date will not change on the voucher unless it is edited by a Clerk.

Barcode Scanning

Barcodes are used in Idealpos for the fast entry of stock items into the sales screen using a barcode scanner, or for stock control using the Stock Manage app. Scanning can also be used on customer accounts for membership cards, bar tabs, accounts and for employees to log onto a sale. Barcodes can also be used when printed on gift vouchers, credit notes, receipts and coupons for faster service.

Barcodes are fast and secure so help you go about your business knowing that mistakes are kept to a minimum. Used in conjunction with label printing and Idealpos' internal barcode creation facility, you can achieve great results very quickly.

Barcode Scanning

Label Printing

Idealpos can create labels that can be printed out onto various mediums for use with barcode scanners. Stock Items, Customers and Promotions can be printed using various label settings. Idealpos can add a scancode to all stock items automatically if required. 

Labels are most useful in being able to add barcodes to items that originally don't come with them as standard. This then allows the stock items to be scanned quickly during a sale, but also to be scanned easily during a stocktake.

When selecting labels to print you are able to select multiple items in one go, saving you time from multiple searches. When selecting items to print you can select lines in blocks or individual lines.

Label Printing

Signs

Signs allow you to print products out including images with prices to advertise throughout your store, helping to promote products. Create and save formats for future use and arrange the components anywhere you wish. Add various elements such as Price, Description, Image & Notes and show details of promotions on the sign for better engagement.

Signs

Credit Note/Exchanges

Credit Notes are used for giving customers who have made a purchase, but instead of giving them a tender refund, they receive a credit note to the value of the returned goods to spend in your store.

Their details are stored in the Idealpos database and can be retrieved at any time if the customer has lost their receipt.

We have been using the Ideal POS system within our Garden Centre since December 2008. With the same system, we can support our Nursery, Gift Shop and Café. The interface is easy to use and modify. Also whenever we have needed onsite technical support it has always been prompt and friendly.
