Ponderosa Point-of-Sale (POS) Solutions
As an LBM retailer, you know the importance of providing fast, first-class customer service. A friendly and helpful store clerk can create a positive experience that can turn a first-time shopper into a regular customer that will recommend your business to friends and family. Nevertheless, it also takes an efficient POS system that will provide the clerk with valuable information and make the checkout quick and easy.
Powerful Retail Management Solution
Ponderosa POS is a powerful, flexible retail management solution designed to let retailers integrate POS to back office, improve visibility and margins and efficiently run their business. Ponderosa POS software gives you the ability to manage your retail systems on a real-time basis with the speed, agility and functionality retailers need to streamline retail processes, access and analyze critical information, handle unpredictable consumer spending behavior and manage your business more profitably.
Support All Payment Types
Ponderosa provides complete control at the register for cash, checks, and all major credit cards, including EMV (chip) cards and the new PCI Data Security Standard. You get real-time transaction posting, deposit and quote tracking, scheduled deliveries, credit issues and payment processing on account and, most important of all, rapid checkouts – all from one simple menu.
Convenience and Ease of Use
When you hire a new employee, you need them to begin using your POS system correctly, as soon as possible. The Ponderosa POS module is designed for simple, intuitive actions that any user – storeowners, managers and clerks – can master right away. New hires will be perfectly comfortable using Ponderosa in a matter of minutes.
Increase Sales and Up-Sells
Studies have shown that it costs five times more to attract a new customer compared to selling an existing customer. With this in mind, Ponderosa POS tracks all the vital information about your customers – information you can use to generate targeted marketing campaigns to keep your customers coming back. Just enter your customer’s name and address at the POS and Ponderosa presents complete historical transaction details, total purchases to date and more. This information is also useful for verifying payments on previous purchases, controlling product returns and monitoring pricing discounts.
Versatile Hardware & POS Component Support
Ponderosa supports a complete POS hardware solution that works with a range of touch-screen PCs (cash registers), keyboard and mouse, cash drawer, card reader, barcode scanner and receipt printer. The solution can be easily customized to your specific requirements.
