3. Repair and Maintenance
Choose point-of-sale software that offers a repair tracking function if you provide bike repair services to your customers. If you have a bicycle shop, it is likely that some customers will bring back damaged bicycles or equipment. If you offer a repair service or simply manage this service, it is essential to purchase point-of-sale software that offers this functionality natively. Without all-in-one software, you will need two (or more) software to manage your repairs. Thanks to internal notes in Alice POS, you can ensure a rigorous follow-up of the products to be maintained, repaired or given to the customer. This feature can help employees provide quality service and optimize the management of your bicycle store.
4. Management of Used Items
When you own a bicycle store, you most likely manage used items, such as the resale of used bicycles and other related items. With point-of-sale software that offers this functionality, you can manage used inventory with customizable statuses. This can be an excellent new source of revenue for stores looking to offer better service and products than those available on online classified sites and used goods marketplaces.
5. Promotion Management
Managing promotions in point-of-sale software such as Alice POS allows you to control the duration of promotions in a specific time, even if you have several stores (it is important to ask the company you are interested in since not all software offers this option). Indeed, you can plan the precise date and time of a promotion, the type of promotion (balance, percentage), the products or categories concerned, modify it if necessary or delete it. With Alice POS, if you have several stores, it is also possible to set up local promotions, i.e. a promotion in one of your stores, without this one applying in your other bicycle stores. For example, if an item sells less in one store but sells quickly in the others, you can promote, manage and modify it remotely, without it applying elsewhere.
