Adding Convenience Store Inventory Software
The most critical aspect of an effective inventory system is the Electronic Price Book. EPB’s are a centralized listing of all active products in your store and hold easily sortable data points relative to every item sold through your POS system.
Price Book Creation
We understand that one of the biggest obstacles for independent retailers in implementing a back-office system is the price book creation. Every aspect of a successful back-office is dependent on the accuracy of the price book. That’s why we work with you on-site to create your price book and guarantee its accuracy.
What to Expect
- We’ll Conduct a pre-installation site survey.
- During the survey, we’ll scan all items in your store and assign a shelf price, product description, UPC/SKU code.
- We provide a guaranteed scan rate of better than 95%
- We’ll insert your current vendor cost, package sizes, and order numbers
