Precise Point of Sale is a very comprehensive general hard and soft goods retail, spare parts and counter sales extension of your Epicor ERP platform. It is highly modular, designed to allow you to select the components appropriate for your business today and extend over time if needed.
There are two styles of User Interface, one oriented more towards a hard core, fast sales order entry environment, and the other being more touch screen-friendly, more “typical retail” if you will. Again, you can pick and choose as to which of these is most appropriate to your people and type of trading. Indeed you can even mix and match them depending on what your needs are – such as perhaps having touch screen tills for counter sales and service, and a fast order entry layout in your call center.
Either way, the full power of Precise POS is at your disposal.
- Retail Promotions – Manage bundled, BOGOF, promotional code, time-based and other pricing models beyond the standard pricing functions of your Epicor ERP system.
- Loyalty and Payment Programs – Define loyalty point earning and redemption calculations and methods, support gift cards with monitored balances, and gift voucher sales and processing.
- POS Layby (Layaway) – Provide your customers with an ability to lay down a deposit on their purchase and then make regular payments, only being able to collect the goods after the last instalment is completed.
- Multi-Currency Processing – Accept payments in multiple currencies at the retail counter using exchange calculations rates as defined and maintained in Epicor, as well as support for both enterprise-wide and local store pricing in currencies other than the ‘base’.
- Inventory Management Suite – Extend POS to support Inventory stock count functions, entering adjustments, working with Inventory Transfer requests/shipments/receipts and receiving Purchase Orders at the store.
- Mobile Productivity Suite – Enable the use of POS Inventory Management Suite operations via a browser-based, barcode-enabled mobile device.
- POS Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) – Interface Precise POS to credit/debit card pinpad terminals (note: may require some professional services to enable connectivity to devices and payment processors).
- POS Retail Pharmacy – Extensive functionality for managing the data and business process integration relating to third party prescription management solutions in both standard customer-facing retail and bulk transactions such as a hospital account or Webster Pack.
