Pet Product News, NCR CounterPoint and Northwest Pets

Pet Product News just featured an article that mentioned one of my mulit-location NCR CounterPoint customer customers.  Before some shout-outs, I noticed that the article mentioned some recent data from the National Retail Federation related to over/under inventory stocking:

"A recent report by the National Retail Federation revealed that U.S. retailers lost more than $224 billion in 2012 due to holding excess inventory and $45 billion from not stocking enough."

In all honesty, that alone is reason enough to have a point of sale system.  Imagine how you could be losing sales by:
  • Not having the product in stock
  • Not being able to set minimum stock levels to make sure that you order products before they sell out
  • Not having reports telling you what your top selling and bottom selling products are 
Not to mention that having too much product, or product that is not selling, in inventory is tying up cash that could be used for business operations.

OK - on the shout outs...

I've had the pleasure of knowing Del and Angie at Northwest Pets for over 8 years now.  They have been great to work with and I highly recommend their stores for all of your pets needs.

We first started them on the Microsoft RMS Store Operations system and then upgraded to NCR CounterPoint as plans came together to open a second store.

Here is a link to the full article in Pet Product News than mentions one of my multi-location NCR CounterPoint users, Northwest Pets:
