Uniform and Scrub Retailer Point of Sale
The best uniform store POS systems support the needs of specialized retailers selling to employees of hospitals. doctors offices, food services, schools, laboratories and other companies requiring employees to wear uniforms. Uniform retail management systems must be able to track inventory and manage prices. Many uniform retailers sell items not in stock that must be ordered from the vendor – so the ability to manage special orders is critical for the store’s point of sale software. In addition, medical scrubs and uniforms usually come in a variety of sizes and colors – so support of matrix items is important.

Killer POS Feature for Uniform and Scrub Stores: Special Orders
MicroBiz supports the management of Special Orders, such as the sale of scrubs and uniforms not currently in stock.
