Here is the theory of how to use point of sale sales data which one of our clients used to increased their turnover by analysising their stock. This is the theory
What I did was write a simulation for such a scenario. If it sounds too hard, don’t worry it is difficult to do but easy to explain. So bear with me. Now what would it do to sales after a five-year period?
As you can see the owner does not have to do much pruning every month to make a dramatic impact. Using their sales data from their pos system if they get rid of 5 products lines a month this would result in a 41% increase in sales. A little more aggressive pruning say 15 lines a month would results in 49% increase in sales. After that it is not worth doing.

As you do need to get permission, it would be advisable if you intend use a company logo to first contact them. I would suggest sending an email as then you get something in writing. Based on our experience this is easy. We just sent them a description of what we wanted to do. All of them replied fine almost all immediately.
I confess that I prefer words but the beauty of posbrowser is you get a choice on how you want the cash register to look.
