How can a modern POS system help paint dealers grow their business?
A modern POS system can help paint dealers grow their business, lower expenses and increase profits. For example, with a modern POS system you can utilize reorder point calculations and vendor integrations to carry only the inventory you need at that time of year, special orders to capture and track additional sales and contractor pricing to closely manage your margins and sales forecasting. In addition, you can automate pricing levels, schedule sales/discounts and email invoices/statements – all to improve efficiency, increase customer service and reduce mistakes at the POS. Older systems do not offer the level of management needed to improve (and personalize) the experience for retail customers and contractors.
