SQUARE FOR MULTI-STORE RETAIL
Multi-store Retail POS system for smooth selling
Your POS (Point of Sale) system is an integral part of your business’s operations. In particular, it plays a vital role in managing inventory and the staff who access and sell it.
The more you grow, the more demands that will be placed on your POS system. This means that it’s vital that you choose a robust multi-store POS system.
Managing multiple stores made easy
Solutions that scale quickly and easily with your business.
- Quick and simple to set up both the software and hardware for multiple stores.
- Designed to help businesses manage as few as one or two stores to hundreds across various locations.
- Access and user permissions can be set based on each employee’s role in the business.
- Track sales per employee, store and vendor enabling you to make data-driven decisions.
Centralised inventory management system
A range of inventory management features to benefit multi-store retailers.
Automated optimal stock forecasting
Keep track of your sales and recommend what you should be ordering and when to keep your stock at optimal levels.
Inventory velocity and performance
Gain a deeper understanding of which products aren’t selling well, easily implement re pricing or marketing campaigns to keep stock moving throughout your business.
Cross-location stock transfers
Use surpluses at one store to replenish shortages in another. Record the reason why the stock needed to be transferred to see if any changes need to be made in the future.
Automatic purchase orders
Automatic purchase orders are generated for review when levels start to run low. These will be sent to you for approval before they are sent to vendors.
Keep all your vendors’ contact details safely in one place to make reordering easy, along with reports to track which vendors you sell the most products with.
Inventory by category reports
Organising different items into categories to make them much easier to manage.
Manage inventory on your phone
Make inventory updates, cycle counts, or full stocktakes, on the go with an app on your iPhone or iPad
“We sourced a Square Terminal when we first opened our business and loved how simple it was to set up. We process our retail sales and clothing hire fees and find the screen interface easy to use for all cards, phone taps and Afterpay too.”
