Typical life cycle in the running of a shop
1. The supplier comes with stock
2. The stock is kept in the store or warehouse depending on
the shop is
how big
3. From time to time, stock is moved from the store/warehouse shelf
4. Customers take items from the shelf to the checkout counter
5. Item is sold to the customer on the till
6. The shop then re-orders for more stock from the supplier
… And the circle continues

EPOS system monitors all the processes in the shop
Typical problems in most shops
•
Manual record keeping of the date, stock and supplier every
time is tedious
•
Manual stock taking in the store and on the shelf is tedious
•
Customers not finding items they came to purchase is bad
for business
•
Overstocking or under-stocking of items is bad for business
•
How do you control theft – both on the stock and money?
•
How do you know how much was sold and by whom?
•
You should be able to sell items on promotions e.g. “Any 3
cans of Fanta, Coke, Sprite for the price of 2”
•
Selling items at the right prices.
•
Warning attendants about selling age restricted items –
Government regulation
•
Printing item prices on the shelf especially when there is a
promotion is tedious
•
… and many more
To solve these problems, we need to introduce the EPOS system.
EPOS (Electronic Point Of Sale) system uses computers to manage
the day to day activities of the shop
The EPOS System
Our EPOS system allows you
to put everything in your shop
“into the computer”. Thus,
every stage in the shop life is
recorded.
The EPOS system is divided
into 2 parts
–
Till Operation
–
BackOffice Operations
The Till Operation allows the
till attendant to sell to the
customers, while the
BackOffice Operation is used
by the manager or shop owner
to monitor sales, items,
suppliers and staff

Why we are unique
Many EPOS systems have features that have become like
a standard among them
At times, they have too many features that are never
used and lack some basic features that may be needed
perhaps unique to the buyer.
Thus, our system is different based on these points:
• We will put any feature(s) you need at no extra cost
• Perfect for retail and wholesale use
• Perfect for weighing items as well as scanning barcodes
• Colour-coded images used for items that have no
barcode (e.g. plantain)
• Selling items that have no fixed price (e.g. paypoint)
• Purchase history of all items in the shop available
• Suppliers dealings with the shop available
• Excellent simplicity with ease of use
• You are warned on goods about to be expired
We have the best value for money on the epos system in
the market
What we look for in shops
Your shop still uses the cash register
•
You have to know or stick the prices on the items
•
Anyone that serves the customer must know the prices.
There are possibilities of price mix up
•
No accountability of items sold and even by whom
•
No proper stock / inventory control
Running foul of government regulations
•
Can you easily make price labels on the shelves
•
You must not sell age restricted items (Alcohol cigarettes) to
minors
Do you know the sales history of each item you sell?
e.g.
History of packets of biscuits
30 bought on 04/02/2007 for £30.00 from WANIS
10 bought on 12/02/2007 for £8.00 from Cash & Carry
44 bought on 23/03/2007 for £37.00 from Cash & Carry
24 bought on 24/10/2007 for £22.50 from WANIS
Can you easily retrieve your suppliers’ invoices
e.g.
Invoice from WANIS from 12/01/2007 to 21/10/2007
20 hair extension bought on 12/01/2007 for £20.00
10 hair extension bought on 15/01/2007 for £11.00
2 Bags of rice
bought on 17/10/2007 for £38.00
56 Packs of pens bought on 21/10/2007 for £50.00
Total amount £119.00
Finally, ask yourself this question: “Are you labouring too much
on your shop and wished things could be done simpler?”
