How many different roles do you have to play to keep your clothing store running? There’s facetime with customers, leading and educating staff, curating your online presence, keeping up with the latest trends, and then a world of back of house tasks like purchase orders, inventory management, and tracking sales.
Digital technology can help you blend all these roles into a single workflow that makes you feel like you have overall control of your business rather than being pulled in half a dozen different directions at once.
The platform for this new approach is already in the heart of your store. It’s your clothing store point of sale hardware and software. Here’s what it can do for you:
What Can a Clothing Store Point of Sale System Do?
A digital POS system can “do” just about any task you need to complete to keep your retail outlet going, and growing. More impressive, however, is that fact you can do all these tasks within a single platform, and access that platform from a range of personal and professional devices. That’s because the leading POS systems are now hosted in the Cloud. This creates a seamless sync between your phone, iPad, laptop, home computer, and in-store registers. You, and anyone else who needs to, can access anything and everything whenever and wherever they want.
Those tasks you’ll want to access while experiencing a lull on the floor or a long lunch, include:
Automate Your Purchase Orders – Computers are experts at following patterns and creating and executing complex algorithms based on your input. It all sounds very dramatic, but basically means you can set inventory levels and priority orders into your POS system and leave the tech to watch over your inventory and automatically make orders when stock gets low.
Analyze Your Sales Figures – By linking your register with your inventory you can track every sale that goes out your door, or gets mailed out online. You can use this information to understand customer behavior, track trends, and plan ahead for seasonal and cultural changes.
Display Your Entire Catalog – By using a common iPad as the screen on your POS equipment you can let customers browse through your entire catalog of clothes. They can investigate all the possible colours, alterations, styles, and future product—but you don’t have to crowd your floor with every potential variation. Effectively you’re combining the real world and the online world at a single point. Your tablets all become alephs.
Be a Better Boss – If you link your business elements into a single platform you can accommodate all your staff management requirements into the same space you use to order more name tags. A comprehensive system can accommodate:
- Permissions and approvals
- Clock-in and timesheets
- Allocation of staff sales
- Staff training progress and potential
All of these features are designed to bring the competing roles of a retail outlet owner or manager into a single workflow. Your time is worth more than having to access different machines, remember different passwords, or handle things with paper forms and in-person meetings. A digital solution lets you do it all how and when works best for you and your business.
All-in-One Clothing Store Point of Sale
You can do more when you can do everything from the same platform. Running a retail outlet is a constant flux between creating an engaging customer experience and working behind the scenes, after hours, from home, and during family time to set the stage for that experience. With a digital POS system you can reduce that burden by automating the hard work, picking of tasks whenever and wherever you find down time, and empowering customer and staff to help themselves.
Every retail outlet has to have a point of sale device where customer complete their transactions (and hopefully find a little extra value). So you may as well extend yours into the latest digital realm and create an all-in-one solution that covers just about every problem you’re going to face.
