My customers can inspire me

POS SOFTWARE

Sometimes, I get inspired when I talk to my clients about what they do in their shop.

Frequently, I hear from newsagents that their traditional markets are down and how it is affecting their businesses. Well, Nextra Sunbury is a newsagency, one of many nextra shops.

Ten years ago if you had gone into it, you would think that it is big but other then that, nothing extraordinary different to other newsagencies out there.  Like many newsagencies, it has experienced dramatic declines in its newspaper and magazine trade, but unlike many others today, its profitability is way up.

Why?

Because it has changed its product mix, they made the changes away from the products that were declined and switched to products that sell well and had high margins. They now sell gifts, clothing, jewellery and stunned me, shoes. They now trade between one and two million dollars annually of products with excellent margins. These products are growing now in their shop by about 28% a year.  

What is the secret?

If you talk to them, they will tell you that the secret is to use our software profitability reports. That way, they keep track of all stock movements, including sales so that they can easily rank their products by best sellers, location, revenue, profitability, margins, seasonal sales, and much more. Then they use the information.

Taking your reporting to the next level works. 

Here are some points to consider 

  • Identify your slow-moving stock, then make an action plan, eg reduce your reliance on these products, move to a different location or maybe get rid of it.

  • Identify your fast-moving stock, then make an action plan, eg increase your reliance on these products and/or move to a better location and look to leverage it with companion stock.

  • Find your best areas in the shop. You may be surprised. 

  • Work your VIP club, Sunbury Newsagency now has a huge VIP club. This is an excellent source of repeat business.

  • Use free services like Facebook and email marketing to inform customers of new products. Check out their facebook page here you will see that they are writing many posts and putting up pictures every day on Facebook.

  • Help structure your seasonal inventory through analysing past years’ sales.

  • Examine your stock levels and costs. You may be stunned, I heard of a small shop that depending on the greeting card companies to look after their cards, finding out that they had way over what they required in cards. The owner told me afterwards that he was shocked as they had way over what they needed, and the card company was suggesting that they buy more.

Take Advantage of Your Retail POS System

There are many other ways once you get into it that you can analyse retail sales trends in a meaningful way. You have, though posbrowser the most powerful POS system, I know. Play around with the software yourself, and learn the retail reporting and data analysis that it has to offer. Then use it. At least once a month, set up a formal review of your shop.

Our survey for 2018 is now closed

POS SOFTWARE

Survey

I want to thank all the people that took part in our annual survey in 2018. 

Every year for the past 20 years we have been surveying our clients to see how we have been going forward. Its purpose is to see how they feel we performed. What I find very useful is that using it, I can see how we went compared to previous years, 

It is going to take me some time to process it, but so far we look overall pretty good in 2018. For those that know something about measuring customer satisfaction, I am pleased to report that our NPS is up slightly up this year and is now just over 40 which puts us well in the high group. That is pretty amazing as the average for an IT company in Australia is about -7.

So our customers are happy at least those that filled the survey are overall very happy with us 

Now I need to go through the details, and hopefully, this study can help us to find specific areas and technologies that we need to focus on in 2019 so that we can bring you more of what you need.

Another cheap attack on us

POS SOFTWARE

A competitor made another nasty attack on us, the last attack on us readers here may recall was to attack us as our prices were too low. Their solution was interesting, they raised their prices. 

Now they made some new claims against us. My first reply was ignored, so I made a second reply with this and took a screenshot here.

Reply to a complaint

When this was not published then I complained and asked that this attack be removed. Failing that if they wish to stand by this attack that my reply be published. It is after all natural justice that if you are attacked somewhere that you be given a chance to respond back at the place that you are attacked. Afterall we do have a Right of reply that "generally means the right to defend oneself against public criticism in the same venue where it was published" in a site that claims to be open.   

Both of these rights were denied bluntly.  So giving the readers the wrong impression that these claims are true. They are not, for example, I estimate that the savings in our XchangeIT could save a typical user of ours compared to a user of their system on XChangeIT, about $400/year in transport costs plus give our users a considerable saving in time and cash flow every month. These figures would be much higher if they are in the country. 

I ask that either this attack is removed or that my reply is published or that the site put up a notice that it is not open or fair.

How is it possible for you to have more newsagency clients, now then a few years ago? There were over 5000 then and now there are about 3500, where do your numbers come from?

If I add the number of systems you claim and the number that tower systems have and then add a few more systems, I get over 3500 which is impossible even if every newsagent has a computer system which is certainly not true.

> How is it possible for you to have more newsagency clients, now than a few years ago? There were over 5000 then and now there are about 3500, where do your numbers come from?

We have not released our numbers for quite a while for legal reasons so we are not making any claims up or down. When we did quote figures we did offer a mutual offer to a competitor for a  confidential audit of both our systems of the numbers to resolve this issue by a third independent party. This offer was rejected. Then we signed an agreement with them which included a clause that we would not quote comparisons so we stopped quoting figures at all.

>If I add the number of systems you claim and the number that tower systems have and then add a few more systems, I get over 3500 which is impossible even if every newsagent has a computer system which is certainly not true.

Yeah, this has been stated many times. You do not need to be Einstein to see the figures do not add up. They do not even make sense.

Let me say this, I know X the number of newsagents, I know Y the number newsagents I have and the figures some are claiming and in no way does it match X-Y.

Best wishes for a wonderful 2019 New Year!  

POS SOFTWARE

2018 to 2019

It is hard to believe that 2018 is now almost behind us.  

While in my current role of director today, I spend more time behind the scenes then I used too, I can assure you that my dedication and drive to deliver the highest value product for our clients has continued and I would like to take a quick moment to share my thanks and gratitude to everyone I have had the honour and privilege to meet, work with, and interact with this year.

In 2018, we did over 220 major upgrades to our system, it is faster and more powerful then it is ever been. If you have not seen it recently you probably will not recognise it. Here are some of the notable changes we have done this year.

Software upgrades in 2018

We did over 17,000 support calls seven days a week, 24 hours a day. We never stopped working.

A customer satisfaction score (NPS) has continued to improve. Obviously what we are doing our clients like.

Personally, it has been a great pleasure to work with you.

On behalf of myself and from all of us at POS Solutions we extend our best wishes for the coming New Year and it is our sincere hope that 2019 will bring you joy and prosperity for you, your friends, family, and loved ones everywhere.

 

Bernard Zimmermann

I am going to say that I really like to read stuff like this. I decided that I will read about this more after coming back from my coach tours from vancouver

Howdy! I could have sworn I've visited this site before but after browsing through many of the posts I
realized it's new to me. Regardless, I'm certainly happy I
came across it and I'll be book-marking it and checking back regularly!
