Retailers paying separate fees for their EPOS, sales support and ecommerce provision could cut their expenditure significantly by switching to an integrated Software plus Service (S+S) solution that delivers all three, claim experts at CTS Retail.
With monthly operating costs continuing to place pressure on cash strapped retailers, the MD of CTS Retail is urging retailers to consider the benefits of switching to an integrated S + S EPOS solution that includes support, upgrades and web-store.
Scott Storey is convinced that the innovative pence per transaction charging model of EPOS software Cervello, combined with the additional support and services from CTS Retail, its exclusive UK distributor, could be a saving grace for many retailers looking to cut monthly outgoings whilst maintaining all their current EPOS provision.
"The feedback we are getting from retailers is that any solution which removes the need for add on monthly costs for support, upgrades and web store costs is certainly worth exploring in more detail. What makes Cervello so unique is that it is a pre-integrated solution with embedded e-commerce software from NitroSell, so links the store and web channels, providing a seamless customer experience, plus all you would expect from a newly released epos system. At the same time it helps reduce shrinkage, transform the supply chain and become more productive," says Scott.
Cervello is currently the industry's only Pay As You Go EPOS solution and operates on a zero license fee model. Costs are only applicable when sales are made through the system and even then it is a nominal pence per transaction fee. Retailers can effectively trial the system for no cost (if they don't run any sales through it).
Scott adds, "It is a tough world for retailers at the present time and so any new developments in software that can help reduce costs, boost productivity and improve the customer experience are certainly going to turn heads."
