Do you run an electronics store? If you handle things like computer and mobile device hardware and accessories, chances are you’ve been struggling with the POS system you’re currently using. The average point of sale system will keep track of some inventory and maybe help you get a general idea of what’s going on with your sales, but they tend to be too basic for the incredibly varied and specific items that electronic stores deal with and usually have little to no ability to handle services like computer and cell phone repairs or sales consults.
PHP POS is different from the average point of sale system and contains features specific to the needs of computer shops and cell phone stores. Through our work with customers, we’ve identified the features they really need in order to keep their electronic store thriving and growing:
PHP POS allows you to create inventory for every part your electronic store may carry with fields for unique serial numbers as well as custom fields based on the parts you carry. This means you can easily keep track of cell phones, cell phone batteries, cell phone cases, tablets and tablet cases and more without getting confused with all the different versions and specs for each. You can also combine items into item kits if you have sets of items you market together!
Inventory tracking with PHP POS is a breeze and notifications can be set up for reorder points and low inventory so that you never find yourself without what your customers need!
Many electronic shops have a service component of repairs to their business. A customer has cracked another cell phone screen, needs their laptop fixed, or can’t figure out why the computer they bought won’t turn on.
All of this can be monitored and recorded in PHP POS’s work order feature. This will let you know what sale and item a work order is related to, who’s working on it and what has been done with the repair.
With a simple all in one place dashboard to find and work with repairs, your employees will immediately be able to help a customer calling for an update on their devices.
Few businesses are entirely in store these days, which is why PHP POS offers easy ecommerce integrations. PHP POS integrates seamlessly with Shopify and WooCommerce to allow you to keep your inventory and analytics in one easy to use place!
PHP POS has partnered with coreCLEAR to offer seamless credit card processing integration at an amazing discount to you. You can easily sign up for coreCLEAR here, and then we’ll contact you about getting your store set up with minimum fuss.
If you don’t want to take advantage of coreCLEAR’s amazing rates, PHP POS does integrate with several other credit card processors such as: Stripe, Square, cardconnect, First Data, Braintree, Heartland, and Worldpay. For more information on credit card processing see the information here.
If you’re an electronic shop you may have to book appointments to repair things for customers, to help customers pick out the right gadget for them, or even just to teach customers about your products. PHP POS allows you to easily create appointments in the store calendar so that you can at a glance see what your employees are doing and be prepared to offer great service to your customers.
Sales tax can be tricky, especially for businesses with stores in multiple locations. PHP POS allows you to customize sales taxes for different groups and types of items so that you can fine tune what things show up as requiring tax or not during checkout. PHP POS also offers full integration with Taxjar for US customers, an application that will help you set up the correct tax rules for all your products and services.
The features above aren’t the end of what PHP POS offers. PHP POS is a dynamic software that can grow with your business.
