Management Dashboard with Key Metrics

Bulk Import of Customer and Product Records via CVS Files
To speed the process of starting up with MicroBiz, you have the ability to quickly and easily upload vendor catalogs or data export from your prior POS system. The Product Import tools allow you to import data entered into our preset import templates, including map and import cost, price, UPC and other data fields to update existing SKUs. The Customer Import tools allow you to import new customers and update existing customers.
Enforceable Business Rules
The advanced settings in MicroBiz allow you to establish business rules for your store employees. These settings prevent or place restrictions on certain types of transactions – automatically enforcing store policies for across all employees.
|– Allow negative inventory||– Returns limited only to store credit|
|– Restrict discounts on certain items||– Auto SKU generator|
|– Lock register after sale||– Minimum order deposits|
|– Allow unreferenced returns||– Printed policies on receipts|
|– Prompt for out-of-stock items||and more…|
You can use our receipt template settings to modify certain elements of your receipt design to suit the needs of your business. Use our receipt wizard to create templates with different titles, line items and store messages. You can insert your store logo to help reinforce your brand. There are controls on how to display customer data and the line format of receipt items. You decide whether to display discounts, line item notes, payments, signature line and a receipt barcode. There is also a section for store policies.
Flexible Tax Rules
MicroBiz allows you to set-up virtually any type of sales tax. MicroBiz supports both general sales tax (GST) as well as value added taxes (VAT). You can build up sales tax by state, county and municipality and have different sales tax rates for different store locations (critical if your stores operate in different tax jurisdictions). You can assign tax rules for products and customers. We even handle luxury sales tax rules in NY and MA and tax rounding rules in FL and MD.
Configurable Employee Roles and Restrictions
MicroBiz Cloud allows you to create customizable employee roles that can be assigned to employees. When you assign a role to an employee, the employee is limited to screens, functionality and record edit rights included with the customized assigned role. For example, employees assigned to the junior cashier role can only ring up sales and add/edit customer/product records from the front register while the employees assigned to the administrator role have unfettered access to the entire MicroBiz application.
You can decide which payment methods are displayed on the tender screen (cash, payment card, gift cards, store credit, etc) and add custom tender types. You can also customize the payment card display to track only the payment cards which you would like to accept.
Modifiable Currency, Receipt and Field Labels
MicroBiz’s flexible design enables you to change the currency displayed on the register screen and reports. In addition, many of the titles and labels for the fields on the receipt and register screens can be modified to reflect terminology in your country or local market.
