3. Promotion Management
Creating network-wide promotions is an effective strategy to attract consumers. However, once the promotion is created at Head Office, each store must enter the promotion into their system. This can be extremely time-consuming. With Alice POS, managing multi-store promotions will make it easier to broadcast your promotions to each store.
Alice POS allows you to create your promotions in the master account and distribute them to your network of stores. This can save a franchise or other types of store networks a lot of time as each manager in each store does not need to enter the promotions in their software. The master account only has to create a promotion and distribute this promotion to its stores. The whole network receives the same information and the risk of errors is greatly reduced.
Stores can create promotions to attract local customers. Also, the master account can ask franchisees to provide data from their stores to know their promotional activities. This allows the Head Office to control its stores to keep them running smoothly.
4. Standardized Pricing
Making network-wide price changes can be time-consuming, especially if you have several shops that have to adapt prices to their local customers and market.
Alice POS can help simplify price changes with multi-store standard pricing. With your master account, you can set product prices and distribute them to the stores that are part of the network. You can always change your prices if you wish. Also, this function works very well to help manage multi-store promotions.
By centralizing product price changes, you can distribute the same prices to all your stores. This avoids errors since all the branches that are part of the network receive the same information and do not have to manually enter the changes made.
5. Local Product and Price Management
It is important to consider and respond to the demands of your customers to satisfy them and build loyalty. Each store may receive specific requests for products and services. This is why some establishments will want to offer products and services that are exclusive to their store.
With Alice POS, managing local products and prices will be easy. Once the master account has made its list of products and prices, sub-master accounts and stores can modify them to adapt them to their clientele.
On the product side, the sub-master account can add, delete, and modify items. These modifications may be necessary to respond to local demands as well as possible.
As for prices, the sub-master account can only add and modify prices. When adding new products, the manager has to set a price for each item added. When changing prices, the manager may need to adjust prices to attract customers to their store.
With this function, you will save time to better manage your store’s local products and prices and optimize your sales.
6. Role Management
By having a network of stores, it is important to assign roles (limited access to data) to your staff to keep your business running smoothly. Each individual is crucial to the success of your company and data protection is key.
With Alice POS, it will be easy to assign roles to your employees. Role management allows you to assign specific responsibilities to employees and give them access according to their status. For example, inventory manager, accountant, clerk, etc. This functionality allows you to have better control of your employees’ access and those who can consult the company’s data.
Role management provides more secure access to your company data by limiting access among staff.
