The huge product database is crowd sourced and kept up to date at all times, showing all products ready for sale together with detailed information and product images for all products. All retailers have all products in their POS systems straightaway, without having to enter them themselves. The system does not only show the selected product, it also shows which accessories match the selected item, giving retailers the opportunity to boost their turnover thanks to cross selling.
The multinational nature of the software means that all products can be shown in a wide range of languages and with the corresponding currencies and rates of VAT. The product catalogue does not only give a comprehensive overview of the complete product range, it also shows current stocks on hand and lets new products be entered easily. Your own product catalogue can be brought up date as often as you need or want thanks to automatic product imports. This lets you change prices, special offers or stock levels several times a day if so required. In addition, the system offers special functions for certain branches such as, e.g. a tariff calculator for the mobile telecommunications sector which can be used to compare contracts, making it easier for customers to select the best tariff and product.
As the only online ERP system, brodos.net is in a position to offer a wide range of virtual products - prepaid cards, activation codes for games like World of Warcraft and the Xbox, updates for navigation systems etc - which can be sold and activated directly at the POS.
In the customer management function, the retailer can view all customer data and use the integrated ticket system to document and process all customer incidents successfully. All customer data is readily available quickly, clearly and in full at all times, and is stored and backed up daily on the virtual drive in the data processing centre. This allows retailers to adopt an active selling strategy, generating automatic SMS campaigns, emails or circulars regarding, e.g., product highlights, special offers or contract upgrades. The customer management function of brodos.net makes CRM easier and allows campaigns to be tailored to meet the needs of various customers.
If required, brodos.net can also offer professional POS hardware. All components - receipt printer, scanner, customer display and cash drawer - are synchronised, making the payment collection process very straightforward. The POS hardware is of a high quality, technically advanced, user friendly, reliable and yet still reasonably priced. If any of the equipment should prove to be faulty, brodos.net is quick to help by replacing the faulty device immediately at no extra charge.
A further highlight offered by brodos.net are the analyses - in particular planning and controlling on the basis of the gross profit overview. Users always have an overview of current takings, daily revenue and turnover in each of their stores. Detailed analyses show them whether the planned targets are being reached, which locations are doing well and which sales staff are contributing particularly well to profits. They can see exactly which product was sold and purchased when and by whom. On the basis of these figures, retailers can optimally manage their stores and shops, monitor sales staff and introduce commission payments as an incentive to making more sales. In addition, the closing cash balance function gives retailers an overview of current daily takings.
The accounting interface can be used to import all records such as e.g. invoices, credit notes and receipts into the retailer’s accounts automatically on a daily or monthly basis. From there the records can be sent directly to the tax consultant via the financial accounting interface. This saves time and money and guarantees that your books are always up to date.
brodos.net is not only user friendly and available anytime from anywhere, it also offers the highest degree of security and protection from hackers and viruses. Data is saved centrally and backed up on a daily basis. In addition to the extensive employee rights administration function, retailers have the option of using the brodos.net security token. This security token works on the basis of a unique number code such as those commonly used in large concerns, making password theft impossible.
