DeKrafts, an online retail store selling home-made soaps, shampoos and lip balms, started out small. The father and daughter team – with one in Bangalore and another one in Gurgaon had a dedicated client list and managed to handle everything on paper and excels. But soon the business grew. Orders began pouring in from places as remote as high altitude villages in Uttaranchal that it excels became ineffective, often resulting in the situation of under-stocking. Keeping a track of newest purchase orders also became unmanageable for the start-up. Without knowing how much products they were sending out, they found that a majority of buying orders were getting duplicated.
DeKrafts was ready to take a leap forward and invest in a strong Retail POS software system. They were seeking a budged, easy to operate system, and we created this list of leading retail POS systems for them.
RetailCore POS SoftwareDeveloped by SeedCore Group, it is meticulously designed to meet the needs of retail outlets. RetailCore consists of several modules that cover billing, invoicing, inventory control management, multiple barcode scanning, stock keeping and bookkeeping. It also supports the additional feature of ‘exhibition mode’ that tracks stock and sales summary and physical stock reconciliation. The consignment module can be configured to track B2B sales and outstanding payments.
The software’s interactive reporting features allows user to sort, link to customers and follow transactions. It offers extensive range of default reports relating to clients, count sheet, payments, pending invoices, products, sales, stock, taxes, and even the company’s turnover. The admin can limit actions of other users in different sections of the software, giving complete authority on controlling the amount that staff members can discount of and controlling the access to other parts of the software that admin would not want them to view.
RetailCore Software can be installed to totally work offline as desktop application, totally online from cloud server, and even in hybrid mode of offline-online while supporting multiple locations. It is carefully engineered for Indian retailers keeping in mind the daily working scenarios of small to medium size retail and wholesale businesses, and works smoothly with all hardware.
