Get to Know Our POS & Inventory Management Software
Catalog of Products
Gift shops have a wide range of inventory coming from a high number of vendors, making it essential that products stay organized. Visual Retail Plus offers a POS software that provides a catalog of products and UPC codes so you can easily see what’s on hand and what needs to be ordered.
Give your customers the best shopping experience and the opportunity to save some money with product prices dependent on the shopper, whether it’s child prices, adults, seniors, or students.
Quickly and efficiently print barcoded tickets so that the checkout process is smooth, on-shelf inventory can be managed easily, and more.
Business owners need to understand how discounts affect their sales. Our POS system tracks discount programs on top of the VIP loyalty points so that it’s clear what items were given a discount and if the item was on sale before the discount. Visual Retail Plus wants business owners to be able to make informed decisions, so we offer a variety of features and functions in our software.
Mix and Match Items
Customers love feeling like they are getting a good deal, and business owners love being able to offer discounts while also increasing sales. Our software allows you to mix and match items or group items together in bundles to promote sales. Bundles will be tracked as a part of the inventory, as well as each item individually.
Our POS software records and keeps track of past customer orders, deposits on special orders, and they also receive a notification when a custom order has arrived. This feature is perfect for gift shops who offer engraving or create custom products such as frames.
Gift registries can sometimes create a headache for everyone involved. With VRP, our gift registry feature can easily be managed by the customer and the store. Create a registry for a person or an event and the software will track what has been purchased and what items are still available.
Employees can create a list of favorite items for a customer who frequently purchases a specific product. Create a smooth and efficient shopping and check-out process for everyone.
For special events, holidays, or a promotion, quickly create coupons that are a certain percentage off, a dollar amount, and more. Stores can also utilize our auto-discount system, perfect for weekend sales events that run for a specific amount of time.
When one store location is out of an item, it’s easy to quickly search through the inventory to find a nearby location that does carry that item. The customer can choose between placing the item on hold and going to that store to purchase the item, or it can be delivered to a location that is convenient for them. Save time, and give your customers the service they want.
Ensure that your store is as efficient as possible with seasonal planning. Our point of sale system will give recommendations for new orders and also track existing inventory and offer recommendations for sales vs. storage.
Keep your inventory organized by creating groups, subgroups, and tertiary groups. Then, add products to a specific group based on the type of product, color, size, material, and many other attributes.
When products are delivered to your store, a feature of our software allows you to attach a picture of the item at the POS. When an employee is searching for a product, but unsure what it is, this feature makes it faster and easier.
Employees can also search the POS for a product by vendor, color, size, style, type of product, and more. When a customer wants to purchase a product without a tag on it, this feature makes checking out a breeze.
Layaway or Hold Options
For larger purchases, or when a customer wants to come back and purchase an item later, our software allows you to add items or orders to either a layaway or hold category. The retailer can set an expiration date, manage payments, or switch the item from layaway to hold.
Time and Attendance
An essential part of a successful business is its employees. Easily track and manage their working hours, overtime pay, commission, and more. The software can easily be integrated with third parties such as ADP so that reports can be generated for efficient time and attendance tracking.
Possibly the most important part of a successful business is its customers! Create and maintain relationships by setting up email lists and sending emails, track customer information, previous purchases, coupons based on shopping history, loyalty points/cards, and more.
