Run Your Business, Not Your Technology
Running a retail business is hard work, but we have your technology covered so that you can focus on the products and services you offer. We have experience with all major retail software and hardware platforms and can easily integrate or upgrade new technology reliably and efficiently.
A business of any size can greatly benefit from properly installed and configured Retail management software such as Microsoft RMS, Oracle NetSuite and many other custom solutions that we offer. We often see retail businesses and distributors that only take small advantages of the capabilities their software provides and create more work or cut themselves short of profit margins. Knowing what you have in inventory, and what you pay for it creates advantages that increase profit and productivity.
When considering proper inventory management, consider the following:
- Do you have the product?
- Can you quickly and easily generate purchase orders for re-ordering product?
- Are you properly tracking your expenses and losses?
- Is your tax reporting timely and accurate?
- Can you identify products you are losing on?
- Can you quickly and easily with the press of a button see your most popular selling items?
- Do you know your strongest audience and markets?
People often forget the value of analytics. If we don’t know what we are selling, how much and what our profit margins are we can not successfully project future sales and increase profits while decreasing cost. The tools we can provide can help you better reach your goals and help provide you with lower overhead in product purchase expenses.
We offer several turnkey retail packages that include all of the hardware and software you need to get your retail business up and going or up to date. Whether you are looking for a compact package or full checkout workstation we can offer you a flat rate package that fits your specific business needs. Our packages include all of the hardware and software you need to track sales, manage inventory and provide retail counter checkout quickly and efficiently.
The face of E-commerce has changed, with so many online marketplaces offering services it is now easier than ever to sell online. Existing online sales can be boosted over 25% by aggregating content to 3rd party marketplaces such as eBay, Amazon, and walmart.com, the problem is managing inventory, profit, and losses correctly and efficiently.

Making It All Work Together
Inventory integration and control is one of the hardest aspects of running an online store. You must not only know what you have available, but you also have to track costs and expenses. Moving data between platforms can be a time consuming and cumbersome effort for anyone, but with new technology being developed daily these efforts have become easy and automated. We work with several different solution providers to find t he right connectors that meet your needs to easily integrate and aggregate data between different sources so you can worry more about your customers and less about data entry.
One of the toughest challenges with online marketplaces is managing inventory that is sold on multiple resources. Often times, our customers sell products in one market place location only to have a duplicate order in another leaving them without enough inventory to fulfill orders. This creates angry customers and can potentially have severe negative effects on online marketplaces if products are not delivered (such as negative feedback).
We can provide with you an easy way to manipulate your product and customer data between services so that you can quickly list products from a single source on multiple marketing platforms such as eBay and Amazon. With a simple click of a button, you can create listings, remove listings and manage inventory to provide your customers with a unique and hassle-free buying experience.
