Counter Intelligence POS Software

Taking a fresh new approach to point of sale processing and retail management, counter intelligence is a Microsoft Windows ® based software solution that is simple to operate, rich in features and fast in performance.

Counter Intelligence POS Software is a true multi-store Point of Sale solution for the modern retailing enterprise. It is ideally suited to the fashion and footwear industry as the Counter Intelligence Software utilises a style, colour and size inventory matrix which is uniquely required by this industry. It also incorporates lay-by, customer loyalty, Voucher & Credit Note Matching, multiple pricing levels, inventory control in multiple locations eg. Head office, warehouse, stores, stock / inventory transfers between locations, product and shelf label printing, supplier invoices and purchase history, wholesale selling from back office, online web store integration, comprehensive security over every aspect of the Counter Intelligence Office Software via user security code and of course detailed drill-down reporting via “Counter Intelligence Interrogator”.

Counter Intelligence POS Software is targeted at the multi-store owner who requires head office administrative control with up-to-date sales and inventory information. Although having said that, Counter Intelligence has some very specialised features that especially benefit certain industry types no matter whether they have a single store or a vast enterprise of stores.

Retail stores that commonly benefit from the Counter Intelligence POS System include: Mens, Womens & Childrens / Babywear Fashion Stores, Footwear / Shoe Stores, Clothing / Apparel Stores, Merchandising, Swimwear, Sports Stores, Lingerie, Jewellery Store, Gift, Homewears, Furniture Stores, Garden Centres / Plant Nurseries and more.

Counter Intelligence Software comes in two parts: Counter Intelligence OFFICE (for use at a retail store, branch office, warehouse or head office) and Counter Intelligence POS (for use at the Point of Sale). They may operate together on a single PC or on separate PC's networked via a LAN within a single store, or commonly, for the multi-store owner, Counter Intelligence POS would be installed at each store whilst Counter Intelligence OFFICE would be installed at a branch office, warehouse or head office location. In this case, communication between each CI POS & CI OFFICE is via a secured internet connection.


Multi-Location

Counter Intelligence POS Software is truly multi-locational, meaning that each retail store has an individual entity within the enterprise. Sales data can be retrieved either in batch form, on usually a daily basis, or the system can be setup as "live feed", meaning all POS terminals and office locations are continuously updated enabling for more timely decision making. Stock, Customer enquiries, Lay-by and Customer Loyalty up-to-date information can be viewed at all stores and offices instantly. eg. if a potential customer is standing in, say store "A", and wishes to purchase a $500.00 pair of shoes in-which store "A" has no stock then the POS operator can quickly check stock availability at other stores and sell the shoes on this basis.

Stock Transfers

Stock transfers from the warehouse or branch / regional office's and from store to store are simple with Counter Intelligence Software. A branch enquiry will tell a store operator where the stock is and what is on order in real time. This allows store operators to confidently sell stock that they may not necessarily have at their own store. Management can track the movement of stock between stores and actual stock on hand levels across the enterprise. Warehouse returns are also simple with Counter Intelligence!

Purchases

Rational purchasing decisions are easier to make when based on the past performance of the product or similar products. Counter Intelligence Software provides you with this and other vital information such as how many weeks it will take to clear existing stock based on sales trends and current stock levels. It will even produce a suggested reorder report.

Detailed Reporting

Counter Intelligence Software not only produces standard sales, margin and stock reports, its data / report interrogator produces another whole tier of reports such as stock, supplier, salesperson and store performance reports. Each report is customisable so that you can get the information you want, when you want it. Graphical reports also make getting detailed information at a glance a breeze! These reports set the standard for retail reporting and are the result of 18 years of input from local retailers.

Automated Processes

Counter Intelligence allows you to set certain communication and reporting tasks so as they are automatically performed and printed whilst the Head Office is unattended. This gives peace of mind that daily sales figures are correctly collated and that transfers are performed in your absence. Backing up and other housekeeping procedures can also be scheduled during this process.

Ease of Operation

One of the fears of any retail operator is speed and ease at the point of sale. Counter Intelligence is fast and intuitive with minimal keystrokes required to complete a sale. With detailed search facilities and optional barcode scanning, your staff will find Counter Intelligence a non threatening environment to finalise a transaction. Lay-by's and Credit notes are easy to perform!

Pricing

Counter Intelligence Software gives you total control over your pricing with markdown by group, supplier, season or style. Set prices in advance for a fast clearance of old stock.

Fashion Matrix

Counter Intelligence Software takes a new initiative in dealing with products comprising style, colour and size elements. All stock is maintained at the style level through the use of a dynamic matrix which specifies the colour and sizes unique to the style. This ensures consistency and makes adding a new style to the system quick and easy. This feature is particularly relevant to the footwear / shoe, fashion / apparel industries.

Voucher & Credit Note Matching

A Gift Voucher or Credit Note is money .... Counter Intelligence can inform you how many have been sold and provided respectively. Information about how many are outstanding and how many have been redeemed over any given period is also provided. Did you know that on average, less than 90% of all vouchers are ever redeemed!

Barcode Labeling

Counter Intelligence Software produces price labels which includes a barcode of the product's PLU (Selling number). Other information can include your store logo, colour and size information .... even an encrypted cost price! Labels maybe automatically produced when receiving stock, while ordering or on demand.

Lay-By's

Lay-By's are easily handled with Counter Intelligence Software. From the moment an operator enters the customers details via on-screen prompts, the lay-by is tracked meticulously until it is fully paid. All payments are recorded against the customer with the POS operator always knowing the remaining balance to complete the sale. Lay-By information is also communicated across the enterprise, allowing your customers to either make further payments or complete their lay-by at alternate stores.

Customer lay-by information is then used as a basis for your customer loyalty program. Why not!!

Customer Loyalty

Yes, you know their face, you know they shop regularly, but who are they? What do they buy and when? How much do they spend? What can I do to make my customers come back to my business time and time again? How can I reward my customers for their loyalty to my business? How can I ensure that they remain loyal to my business in face of continuing and ever increasing competition for their business?

Through Counter Intelligence Software, you can capture information about your customers each time a sale is made. From this information, you can build up detailed customer profiles on which to base direct marketing campaigns created using Microsoft Word and or Excel ® for direct mail and or email etc. You can automatically allocate bonus points to customers as they reach pre-arranged spend levels and allow these customers to use these points when next shopping with you. Intelligence is the secret to building customer loyalty and Counter Intelligence provides the platform.

Online Web Store Integration

Having an online web presence is really an essential part of any modern retailers business. This may just consist of a basic website but if you do not have a complete online store supplementing your sales from your “bricks and mortar” store(s) then you are missing out on valuable revenue.

eRetailer is an optional software module to the Counter Intelligence Software. eRetailer is a fully featured online web store that is completely integrated to your Counter Intelligence Office Software. Selected stock items with complete product details eg price, description, images etc can be seamlessly uploaded to your online store. In reverse, sales and customer data are automatically downloaded into the Counter Intelligence Office Software.

Security

Financial information is sensitive information! Counter Intelligence allows you to create access levels for your staff so that each individual function is accessible only to those with appropriate authority.

All of the above are standard features of the Counter Intelligence POS System with the exception of eRetailer (Online Web Store) and EFTPOS Integration.

The Counter Intelligence POS packages below are common configurations that cover a variety of retail stores and are highly discounted when compared to the sum of the individual component price. Please contact Access POS if you require an alternate configuration.
