Some retailers using Point of Sale software go overboard in what they measure and how they report – encumbering their business with information overload.

Like all good software, the Tower Systems Point of Sale software allows users to structure data to suit their needs. They can create as m,any departments as they wish. the can create as many categories within departments as they wish. This provides the flexibility retailers want. However it can also make it easier for retailers to overburden their businesses with data.

Tower Systems recommends retailers to keep data structures simple. Track what you can manage, track business performance to your level of focus. With most small business retailers and managers being time poor, our suggestion is to start small and expand the data setup and break out over time, let it evolve with your experience with the business and the software.
