Integrated POS: The Fast Way to Streamline Your Sales
A multichannel sales strategy is instrumental to the success of retailers and trading companies today. However, to ensure smooth business operations, you need end-to-end integration between your points of sale (POS) and your ERP system. Integrated POS solutions support you in both B2C and B2B sales.
Today’s consumers have more opportunities to purchase products than ever before. But with greater opportunities come even greater expectations. Customers everywhere demand the means to order, pay, and receive their products when, where, and how they want. For some, this means doing everything online. But many others still prefer to purchase their products in person or order online and pay and collect in store.
This is the reason why a multichannel sales strategy is so crucial to modern trading companies. However, it also makes it trickier to integrate the entire sales process into your ERP system. And without integrated POS, you can end up with a convoluted arrangement of multiple applications. Wouldn’t it be great if you could track all sales, inventory, and financials in real time?
SAP ERP with Integrated POS – The Key to More Efficient Sales
Surprisingly, there are still many retailers that have not yet integrated POS with their back-office ERP systems. This means that you have to go through the time-consuming and painful process of manually entering all data. Not only is that inefficient, but it also means you might not have a complete or accurate view of sales and stock levels.
With integrated POS, your sales teams have real-time, online access to customer data, products, inventories, and price conditions. That is why NTT DATA Business Solutions developed the it.cash&countersales AddOn for existing and prospective SAP ERP users. This comprehensive solution is directly integrated into your central SAP system and covers all counter sales and POS functions. You can also connect it with all common peripheral devices, such as checkout receipt printers, hand scanners, cash drawers, and payment terminals.
