Run a Customized Loyalty Program

Our footwear store POS software even facilitates a customer rewards program where customers can be benefitted by points, discounts, priority benefits, etc. The reward program can be set through the back office. The loyalty program can be set up using a step-by-step process, which makes it easier for the user to implement it.

You are allowed to set up as many loyalty programs as you want. However, you can only run one loyalty program at a time. For running a loyalty program proficiently, you can generate loyalty cards, all having unique serial numbers.
Moreover, you can set different levels for your customers. At the time of the first purchase, the customers are at the initial level. When they conduct more purchases, the level, as well as points, will increase.

There are two types of systems according to which you can define customer level: total available points and total awarded points. In the former case, the level increases as the points increase. However, the level again goes down as the person uses the points. But, it’s not the same in the latter case. The level keeps on increasing based on the total points he has earned by making the purchase.

For configuring a level, you need to define the customers for whom you are running the loyalty program. You also need to set the minimum points required to attain the level. For each level, you need to set a reward point currency conversion factor. It is the value that each point holds in terms of currency.

What more Ari Retail Management Software has for you is the ability to provide specific plans for specific customers. The reward point currency conversion factor can differ with different currencies. It can even be changed as per the geographic locations. Besides that, you can decide whether you wish to allow your customers to redeem the points from any of your stores or only from the store from where the purchase was made.

Multiple Stores managed using one Application

When there is only one shoe store, the management is facile. As the number of stores increases, the handling of stores becomes challenging. Keeping that into consideration, we have specially designed the Ari shoe store POS system to make the multi-store handling effortless.

Linking of the stores delivers high functionality to gift cards, promotions, and loyalty programs. For instance, a person receives a gift card from one of your shoe stores and tries to redeem it from any of your other stores. As the gift card will be generated from POS system, its information can not be provided to the other stores if they are not linked.

Similarly, you can create a single promotion and run it at two or more stores. It is only possible as the stores are linked with headquarter.
