Computer Repair Store Point of Sale
Computer repair store POS systems support the sale of products and services relating to the computer industry. To compete with online and big box discount retailers, specialty computer repair stores usually offer a variety of related services alongside product sales, such as repairs, installation, training and implementation, customization, web design, consulting, and more. Given the high cost and rapid turnover of technologies, inventory management is critical. Top computer services shops are able to keep a low level of inventories of computers, peripherals, parts, and accessories – or use ‘just in time’ operations with little or no inventory at all. The best POS systems for computer repair stores manage repairs and alterations using work orders and the sale of items not in stock using special orders.
Computer Repair Store POS specific features in MicroBiz Cloud include:
- Service department management – allows you to efficiently manage a service department – you can bill by hour or by job, as well as bill for parts.
- Layaways – collect deposits while holding the item out of inventory.
- Check-in multiple customer items – provides ability to check in and manage multiple customer-owned items (such as computers) within a single work order record – so you can separately track multiple computers owned by an individual or family on a single work order.
- Editable product description on receipts – ability to edit from the front register the short product description which appears on a receipt. Helpful when selling unique or customizable items.
- Restrictions on discounts and returns – management settings allow restrictions to be placed on discounts and returns of products.
- Phone order support – ability to manage phone orders for pick-up, shipment or delivery through the Orders in Progress module.
- Accounts receivable – to manage large customers that pay on account, including customer statements.
- Special orders/back orders – Allows you to track special order items (such as a computer model not carried in inventory), from the customer order to receiving, to inventory to the POS transaction.
- Quotes and Invoices – with the invoice in progress functionality, you can quote a customer, print the quote, then when the customer comes in to purchase, simply recall the on hold invoice and process the sale.
- Email marketing – deliver targeted campaigns by querying and downloading customer data for use with popular email marketing applications.
- Minimum deposit requirements – Enforce management rules such as minimum deposits on orders at the store level.
