Cybertill has unveiled a brand new tailored EPoS system for independent bike retailers that it promises will help free up valuable cash flow for IBD’s businesses.
The new system – branded ‘Retail Store’ – is pitched as providing all the tools needed for independents to manage every aspect of their business and has been designed following feedback from its target audience. Retailers will be able to access and manage their store from any location over the internet, meaning store managers won’t have to be tied to their store before and after opening.
Cybertill predicts that IBDs will be able to reduce stock holding by anything between 15 to 40 per cent, freeing up valuable cash flow for business. Retail Store will also provide retailers with access to reports providing up to the minute information on their retail trade.
“Cybertill has specifically developed this system for single store retailers,” enthused Cybertill chairman Ian Tomlinson. “As a business we have listened to what many independents have told us about their experience of EPoS systems. Two of the most common factors have been excessive costs and unsuitable software, which is too often designed for multiple retailers. “Hence Cybertill has developed an EPoS system that focuses solely on what a single store retailer requires, and there are no superfluous features. What’s more, it is positioned at an affordable price. The whole system, including software, hardware, installation and training is available at £3,499.”
Unlike traditional EPoS offerings, Retail Store doesn’t run locally in store and is a ‘cloud based’ solution, meaning retailers can access the software over broadband, via their POS hardware, says Cybertill. The firm also manages upgrades and back ups for the retailer.
“This means independent store owners do not have to become IT experts overnight and do not face the headache of having to manage an EPoS system, as well as run their business,” said Tomlinson.
“Nor do independent stores need to invest in additional back office hardware, such as servers, just so they are able to access the back office system and reports. Retailers are able to access Cybertill from any location with an internet connection, so back office reporting can be done anywhere, at home, on the road, at a suppliers or just wherever and whenever it is convenient.”
