Besides products, there are accessories with which you need to track. Ari pet store point of sale system has exclusive features for handling products and accessories.

At a pet store, you will always find customers who are looking for different products and accessories. Showing them all the products one by one could be time-consuming. However, if the information is available to the salesperson, he can directly deliver it to customers as per the demand. We allow storing data on the pet store POS system for this reason.

Our pet store POS system can accommodate all the information about supplies and accessories. When the salesperson needs to find out a particular product, he can filter it as per the characteristics of the product.

The characteristics are the details regarding the item you add to the inventory. For instance, there are different food supplies; every food supply has a brand. Thus, the brand becomes a characteristic of the product.

This information is added on the back-office, which is Ari’s web-based retail management software, from where the entire configuration takes place. The back-office has a dedicated section for inventory management. In that section, you can add the products and their information.

Besides inventory management, the back office offers features related to promotions, discounts, a loyalty program, reports, analytics, registers, and all the business aspects.

First, you need to set your organization through Ari’s back office, and then input the items on inventory. Further, you can set promotions and discounts on the products whose sales you wish to increase. Lastly, to earn loyal customers, a loyalty program can be established in the Ari Pet Store POS System.

The functioning of different retail business aspects can be tracked using reports and analytics. You can generate reports for your different stores and then compare them.

The analytical dashboard showcases the sales, purchase, top items, etc. in a graphical presentation. It can also be used for comparison of sales at various stores and even the performance of a store in different years. This will let you know how the stores are performing. Based on the data, you can take decisions for the improvement of sales and profit.

One way to improve sales with Ari pet store POS system is to run different discounts and promotions. These options help a lot in engaging customers with your retail business.

The customer reaches a higher level as they earn more points. By reaching on a higher level, you can offer them more benefits such as more points, accessibility to exclusive supplies and accessories, etc.

Managing Supplies, and Accessories

Inventory in the case of pet shop is a bit different. Besides the products, there are accessories which you need to take into consideration. It is necessary to provide complete information about the products to the customers. Moreover, you need to keep track of the movement of products.

Ari pet shop POS system has kept all such requirements into consideration. Whenever any new product arrives at the store, you need to add the characteristics of that product. In the case of products such as food supply, it is convenient to add the information. All a user needs to do is to add characteristics such as quantity, ingredients, etc.

However, in the case of a pet house, the information could be comprehensive such as dimensions, material, etc. Therefore, we have allowed users to generate user-defined fields for adding characteristics. You can create a field where you can add the dimensions of the pet house. This additional information will be visible on the pet shop point of sale system. The salesperson can deliver this information to the customers using Ari pet shop POS Software.

Manage multiple stores of your company

There are retail management systems that claim to handle multi-stores single-handedly. However, when it comes to tracking the movement of products, these applications fail. It is because they are designed to track products placed at one location.

Ari’s multi-store management not only allows you to track products efficiently but also lets you have a well-defined visual representation of your business. After you start using Ari, you first need to create a company headquarter.

Headquarter is considered to be the topmost level of your company. Under headquarter comes the zones divided as per the geographical locations. Under the zones, comes the store. Further, you can add additional places, such as accessory manufacturing plants, warehouses, etc. When the products are moved from one location to another, it can be tracked through the back-office or even with the Ari pet shop point of sale software.

When the items are received, the cashier needs to approve the items. Only after the approval, they are added to the store’s stock.

Multi-store management also helps in improving the functionality of promotions. When you need to run a promotion on all stores of a zone, you can create a promotion and implement it in the whole zone. It will automatically be executed in all stores in that zone. This is only possible because all the stores are interlinked.

Similarly, in case of a loyalty program, you can choose whether you wish consumers to redeem the points from any of your pet shop point of sale or only from the store where they have made the purchase.

Ari’s pet store POS system interlinks the stores, and further links them to upper-level bodies, delivering efficient management.
