Communicates with Other Devices
eHopper is a device agnostic POS System, meaning it works on multiple platforms, all of which can communicate with each other. eHopper works on several All-in-One devices, Android tablets, iPads, and Windows PC. For instance, you can take and save an order on one device and then open and process that same order on another device, allowing for seamless business operations.
Business Management Tools
eHopper has many tools that allow you to effectively manage your business and smoothly run operations. One is an inventory management tool that allows you to track the stock of all your products in real-time. Knowing exactly what you have on hand at all times provides you with critical knowledge of when to restock items and which items are the best or worse sellers.
Reporting in eHopper is a powerful tool that provides you with the insight necessary to make intelligent business decisions. Analyze your sales and better understand your margins to have a true picture of the status of your business. Sales reports showing the varying levels of customer traffic allow you to staff accordingly.
The employee management tool allows you to manage how much access each staff member is allowed to have within the system. Set roles and permissions, such as disabling certain employees cannot process refunds or open the cash drawer, to ensure your data is protected and to prevent theft. You can also easily keep track of employee hours with the Time Clock and Clock In/Clock Out feature, as well as seamlessly track employee tips.
You can also provide customers with incentive to come back for more business by setting up a loyalty program within the eHopper POS Poynt app. Choose to either reward customers with loyalty points each time they visit your business or per a certain amount they spend. Then, once they reach a specified number of points, they will be notified that they are due to receive a reward discount. Customers can choose to either use loyalty cards or simply enter their mobile number.
You can also build a customer database, tracking each of your customers’ transactions and buying habits. Learn who your most loyal customers are and gear towards their specific preferences. This will make them only more likely to come back and spread the word about your establishment.
Design for Small Business Owners
Giving your customers more payment options will increase your sales, as more and more customers choose to use their mobile wallet and secure chip-and-pin cards. As a small business owner you need tools to stay competitive. You need to keep track of your sales and inventory, serve your customers and reward them for their loyalty. You need to process their orders efficiently to provide the best customer service.
The right software can help you manage your employees, develop a clear understanding of your key performance indicators and forecast the future. This tool must be paired with the latest and most secure payment processing hardware so you can provide your customers with whatever payment option they prefer.
Both Poynt and eHopper were designed for small business owners. With the eHopper Poynt app you can provide better service to your customers, develop a greater awareness of your business, streamline your processes and increase your profits.
