Optimise stock control
Monitor the sales and stock level of every line at the touch of a button and use the information to maximise profit. Reorder the products that are moving fast and avoid wasting money in products that gather dust.
Organising the shopfloor
Visual merchandising with so many products on the shopfloor can be a challenge. A pharmacy POS system that enables you to create your own shelf edge labels is a great way to keep everything ordered so items can be easily located, saving time and hassle for staff and customers.
Integrate seamlessly with C+D data and access the latest product information for more than 90,000 products. This includes key industry news, product descriptions and monthly price updates so you can be sure you’re selling at a competitive price and can benchmark against other businesses.
Marketing and customer communication
An EPOS system that enables you to record customer details is crucial. This means you can monitor the buying habits of your customers and also alert customers when their prescription is ready to collect via an SMS message. This personal approach to your customers can be a game-changer when it comes to repeat business and brand loyalty.
Loyalty schemes and discounts
It’s well known that promotional offers increase sales; an EPOS system makes this even simpler to implement pricing strategies like BOGOF and limited time offers. Many EPOS programmes will also enable you to set up loyalty schemes which assign customers points when they make purchases.
Dispensing medicines and providing health advice to customers is an important responsibility. A pharmacy POS system will record and monitor all staff activities via individual clock in / out IDs. This enables you to track hours worked and possibly even calculate wages directly using this information. You can also tailor what certain staff members are able to do in the system such as price changes, refunds or sell restricted items.
Detailed and insightful reporting
One of the key benefits of an EPOS system is the sales insight it provides. The information you gather can help you to increase profit margins, improve stock management and streamline efficiency. All of this ultimately results in better customer service which in turn leads to repeat business. Reports can range from headline figures right down to hour by hour sales trends. Statistics can be gathered across multiple stores to view from a head office or even your home if the system is Cloud based.
