Gift shop software from Tower Systems helps gift shops thrive in a changing marketplace


Gift shops need gift shop software, not just any POS software. They need softer tuned to the needs of their type of business because they are different to other retailers. Everyday POS software, generalist POS software does not cut it.

Running a gift shop is a dream for many who own a gift shop – sourcing wonderful gifts and helping customers find the perfect present. But behind the charming facade lies the day-to-day operations that can make or break your business.

Good gift shop software will help you run an efficient business with fewer mistakes, a business attracting new shoppers and reaching shoppers who do not live nearby. Good gift shop software will help you made decisions based on evidence more so than on gut feel. It will also help you detect and cut theft and find opportunities that you may have otherwise ignored.

Today in 2024, gift shops are changing, they are selling a more diverse range of products. This is where smart specialty gift shop software can help you attract new shoppers. For example, we see gift shops moving into clothing. being able to manage inventory buy colour, size and style can help you make more money from fashion products. Others are moving into offering products sold by length. Not all POS software can track sales to fractions. And other gift shops are in the collectible space and not all POS software can track inventory by serial numbers, with each product having a unique number.
