In retailing the ability to handle a mix of products, collate sales information in real time, auto-generate supplier purchase orders, print product labels and barcodes and generate barcodes for non barcoded products, customer loyalty schemes and handling of promotions are some of the requirements of an Epos system. Maeko Retail for general retail meets these requirements along with integration to Chip and Pin, electronic footfall counters, biometric fingerprint scans for staff logins and CCTV systems for loss reduction.
In Convenience Stores and Newsagents where the number of transactions is very large yet the transaction value is relatively small, profitability depends on good controls from a stock and staff point of view. Processing customers quickly and efficiently without error is essential. Maeko Retail is designed specifically with this type of environment in mind. Easy stock replenishment with auto purchase order, all standard promotions and more applied at scan, minimum staff training required, 24 hour operations supported with time of day based pricing and specialised reporting such as sold out and time of sell out to manage buying in and stock holding optimisation of perishables such as food and newspapers are some of the specialist features of Maeko Retail.
