Challenges

  • Different stores have different POS machine and POS software, so it was difficult to manage the inventory of all stores.
  • Each store has multiple item sales support like Retail items, Fuel (Gasoline), ATM and Lottery.
  • There exist various barcode formats for the same product in different POS systems
  • There’s no common mechanism for sales reporting.
  • Time consuming and 100% manual process for physical audit, fuel inventory entries and lottery ticket management.

How Prompt Softech helped to overcome these challenges?

After visiting their store to analyse their system usage and daily work routine, Prompt Softech suggested: “All in one place - Cloud solution” integrated with a couple of hardware, mobile application and desktop utilities to simplify and quicken system usage along with easy storage of records of users and admin users.
