Nisa launches Multisite EPOS solution
Nisa has revealed an exciting EPOS development today at its annual Expo which is set to support multisite retailers in simplifying their business operations.
The Evolution Multisite solution, which features an intuitive head office application that communicates with multiple branch sites, has been specifically developed based on retailer feedback and will be launching post-event.
Nisa’s IT Service Delivery Manager, Chris Chadwick said: “We are thrilled to finally be launching the Multisite solution after several years of development as we know this new system will be hugely valuable to Nisa retailers operating more than one store. Multisite enables an entire estate to be managed from one single, easy-to-use platform, revolutionising the way retailers currently operate.”
Key features of Multisite include an intuitive and customisable dashboard which alerts users to areas that require attention and highlights metrics to facilitate quick and simple monitoring, as well as automated pricing strategies to ensure margins are maintained and build logic of how retailers wish to manage their pricing across different commodities and multiple stores.
“Centralised pricing and reporting provides the tools to easily range and manage promotions, minimising administration and freeing up crucial time for busy staff members, which will be extremely beneficial as we move into a busy winter of trade,” added Chadwick.
The system will enable retailers to analyse their business by individual store, group of stores or as a whole, whilst offering automated head office and branch communication and auto-generated range additions such as substitutions, presells and allocations.
Gary Batten who operates three Nisa stores in the South-West of England, has recently trialled the system and said: “Multisite gives me the opportunity to control who can do what in our stores; a vast array of security settings allow me to tailor what my staff can do on different systems and hardware with the ‘Roles and Rights’ feature – simply fantastic.”
As well as the Multisite solution, Nisa will soon be introducing a new ‘Zebra’ device to its customers which will simplify stock management using the latest technology through the Nisa app.
Much like a mobile phone, the small handheld device plays host to a raft of functions including ordering, price checking, reduction label printing, goods receiving and much more. And as the device can be supported and updated remotely via Nisa’s IT team, it provides first-class features yet requires minimal upkeep.
“The team has been taking on board retailer feedback and working hard over the last 12 months to streamline the service it provides to the Evolution estate. We are all extremely proud to be involved in this modernisation and look forward to seeing our retailers reap the rewards,” added Chadwick.
