1. Alternative or Multiple SKU’s
The software provides you the ability to assign alternative or multiple SKU’s for any inventory item. You can track and pull reports for up to 120 alternative SKU’s for any individual inventory item. This provides you flexibility and allows precise tracking, management and reordering of your entire inventory no matter which vendor you purchased from or are restocking with the inventory item from.
2. Quantity based discounting
Quantity based discounting is only one of the many sophisticated software functions you are provided to market and sell your goods on sale. For Example:
- Buy two packs get a $1 off
- Buy 2 Get 1 Free
- Buy 3 cigars from the humidor get a free lighter
- Buy 2 pipes get a free cleaning kit
- Save 10 % off with purchase of 5 or 10 qualifying items
These are just a few ways to promote and market your inventory.
3. Prints, Reads, Scans Bar Codes Out-of-the-Box
Create your own SKU’s and print barcodes to track your entire inventory, (like the butterfly labels used in jewelry stores) to tag and track even your smallest items or cigars. Create and print bar code labels for any items without a UPC code and read bar codes for all inventory items. Print corresponding shelf tags with UPC codes for any items.
4. Optionally Set Gross Profit
Set your gross profit on any item or department to a Fixed Percentage over cost, Fixed Dollar over cost, or set to Calculated. If cost goes up and the item is set on Fixed % or Fixed Dollar gross profit, then the prices will automatically change as well allowing the merchant to maintain margins.
5. Price Override at the Register
The software allows for customer based discounts at the register if the employee security profile allows it. There are extensive security levels with every Smoke Shop POS Software System sold. If you choose to allow the Price Override feature, then adjustments can be made on-the-fly by any security level authorized employee at the register. As with all changes made by any employee logged into the system, you can review the logs and run reports on the discounts provided for any employee or shift.
6. Create your own SKU’s
For any inventory items that come to you without bar codes, you can quickly and easily create, print, and apply barcodes to track and manage all your inventory items. Products may be purchased overseas, or from manufacturers that do not label the individual items. If you are breaking down cigar boxes for singles or weighing and bagging your own bulk tobacco for customers, anything can be easily tracked and managed by creating and applying your own bar codes for that product. You can even preprint labels for yet to arrive Purchase Orders so employees know the labels have to be applied before displaying the new inventory in the store. All these in-house SKU’s/Barcodes are integrated into all reports for profit and loss, movement, reordering and quantity on hand.
