Swimming Pool and Spa Point of Sale

Pool store POS systems can range from POS software for small pool and spa shops to inventory management systems for commercial pool and spa distribution centers. To compete, specialty pool and spa retailers need to deliver the expertise and personalized service of a specialty merchant along with a deep selection of merchandise. Given seasonality in the pool and spa business, the smart use of buying, inventory management and easy-to-use pricing tools are essential.
