Our core focus as a POS software company is to create software and provide services that help our retail partners improve the profit of their businesses.
Without profit, any business is dead. This is especially true in small and independent retail businesses where the hours can be long and the challenges considerable. Profit is the marker of success, the pay off if you will.
Small and independent retail business owners need to focus on profit. Our software helps them do this through smart reports, helpful guidance tools and in other ways. We help them drive gross profit per item sold, cut the labour cost of every dollar of sales revenue and guide their decisions based on facts rather than feelings.
Any POS software can transact sales and tell you what you did, who did it and when … smart POS software will tell you this and offer insights beyond these simple measures. It will guide a business to make more money. This is what makes a retail business more valuable. It helps the owner get a better price when they sell the business. It makes the business more appealing to a lender.
While some retail business owners look at a POS software purchase decision as a technical decision, the reality is that it is a business management decision. It is best to approach it as you would selecting a new partner for your business.
Software companies that are accessible to you, that offer live in-store training, that understand your unique business and that engage with you in a non technical way … these are the software companies more likely to be of use to you as you seek to make your retail business more profitable.
Tower Systems serves close to 3,000 small and independent retailers in Australia.
