EPOS software to reduce your administration time

Are you in disbelief that we are already nearly half way through September?

Time is going so quickly and we are approaching 2019 at a rapid rate. You don’t want to spend the remainder of the year inputting all of your sales figures into a computer and writing sales orders by hand, its tedious and can be avoided.

Our EPOS system can dramatically reduce your business administration with our automatic polling software. The software will upload all of your sales figures, from the till into your accounts package. If you do not have your own accounts software, we provide our Back Office Accounts Solutions, which can act as your accounts package to hold all of your financial data. Sales figures can be sent to poll into your accounts package at the end of each trading day, or if you prefer, they can poll at regular intervals, so your accounts system is reflecting accurate data.

Uploading sales data is not the only function of the link software. Any changes made in the back end programmes, including adding new stock or a customer account, will be sent down to the till automatically. The software will make sure to push all changes down to the till to make sure that everything is up to date for the till users.

Time saving is just one of the features of our EPOS software, there are many other features to help improve the daily operations in your business. Find out more about our EPOS software solutions here or contact us on 01794 323 297.


Smart Stock Updates

Smart Stock Updates

There are a few updates being made to Smart Stock that are set to be released very soon. We thought we would take you through a few of the updates, in a bit more detail, to give you an idea of what you can expect.

  • Barcode/ Label Printing – The design of barcode labels can now be configured within Smart Stock. This will therefore make the design of labels a lot more flexible, as you will easily be able to move elements whenever you require. Labels will also pick up location specific pricing, depending on where they are being printed from, to make sure that they always display the most accurate information.
  • Purchase Order Creation – When creating a purchase order, you will have the ability to hide the cost price, or alternatively just show zero price of each stock item. This feature will be dependent on user permissions, so only the staff that you wish to see this information will be able to.
  • Accounts on Stop – Once a customer account has been placed on stop, a warning will be shown when a sales order is being created. This will therefore give your staff the warning and knowledge that the account has been stopped, before deciding whether to go ahead with the sales order.
  • Stock Reorder – Smart Stock will now include the stock reorder module. The reorder feature will suggest purchase order quantities, based upon minimum and maximum figures, to ensure that you never run too low on stock.

Due to the EPOS software being able to be implemented in different sectors of a business, it does therefore mean that all reporting can be completely consolidated. End of day figures will all be reported back to the same software thus reducing staff a significant amount of administration time. The software can then integrate with your accounts package so the figures will transfer automatically across. Reporting however can be kept separate if this is desired allowing you to report separately on individual areas of the company.

SBS EPOS are pleased to have been supporting The Joe Glover Trust since 2015, a children’s cancer charity working with families and specialist children’s cancer units across; Hampshire, Dorset, Wiltshire, West Sussex, the Isle of Wight and the Channel Islands.

Jane, from The Joe Glover Trust, came into the office to spend a morning with the team at SBS EPOS. The morning was spent discussing the great work The Joe Glover Trust do as well as hear about all the ways their grants have helped families. The grants mean so much to all of the families and can help cover costs such as household bills or even travel costs to hospital.

We hope to continue raising and donating money to The Joe Glover Trust as well as raise awareness for a charity that offers such support to families in an immensely difficult time.
