Appliance Store Point of Sale

Appliance store POS systems need to manage a diverse range of inventory, including many large and high priced items. Given the high cost of inventory, it is important to manage tight inventory control as well as efficiently implement mark-downs and promotions. Appliance stores compete against larger general retailers by offering an extensive range of products, professional-grade items, unique and hard to find merchandise and high levels of service and expertise focused specifically on the needs of appliance buyers.

Appliance Store POS specific features in MicroBiz Cloud include:

  • Accounts receivable – to manage large customers that pay for appliances on account, including customer statements.
  • Customer deposits – accept and track customer deposits on appliances.
  • Layaways – collect deposits on items sold while holding the item out of inventory for pick-up at a later date.
  • Markdown management – easily manage group markdowns, quantity pricing, multi-buy items, promotional pricing and bulk discounting on all types of appliances.
  • Sales commissions – can be calculated for each item on the sales amount or the gross profit or track commissions by employee to measure productivity.
  • Special orders/Backorders – allows you to track special order items (such as appliances sold that were not in stock), from the customer order to receiving, to inventory to the POS transaction.
  • Separate customer shipping and billing addresses – Helpful when items shipped to different address – with deliveries and shipments taxed on customer’s address.
  • Service department management – to manage warranties and repairs on appliances.
  • House Accounts – authorized employees can charge purchases to a credit account.
  • Group pricing or discounts – special prices based on customer level or group – such a contractors or wholesale customers.
  • Flexible tax and fee tracking – allows for virtually any taxing or special fee scenario such as disposal fees on televisions.

Killer POS Feature for Appliance Stores: Special Orders

MicroBiz supports the management of Special Orders, or the sale of items not currently in stock.  You can mark an item as a special order item at the time its sold, which places it on a list of special order items in the purchasing module.  When the item is received from the vendor, MicroBiz alerts the user that the item is attached to a customer order, so that the customer can be contacted and the item can be set aside for pick-up or shipment.
