Clearwater, Florida – For many years, Smartwerks® has worked closely with jewelry retailers and listened to their needs. Their recent appearance at JCK Las Vegas, the largest jewelry show in North America, comes as no surprise. “The jewelry business is very unique,” said Patrick Kunish, Smartwerks’ Director of Sales. “We feel that our close relationships with many jewelry retailers has a distinct advantage over the other nationally recognized names in point of sale software.”
The jewelry retailer differs from other retailers, especially when customers are putting deposits on gifts and engagement rings for their loved ones. The quality has to be perfect and the payment plans need to be flexible. Choosing a jewelry POS software with an accounting function gives these retailers the ability to operate a paperless business, eliminating the need for paper tickets and receipts.
Deposits and partial payments on layaway sales are placed in a customer account, excluding them from sales tax records. Once final payment and delivery are confirmed, the sales move automatically to the general ledger. The ten minutes spent on entering a single transaction is saved through automation. During the course of a year, the time saved on paper-bound system can add up to more than two weeks.
Taking advantage of this time-saving software means small business owners can enhance the customer’s experience, while managing their inventory and accounts. Because shopping for jewelry is a very personal experience—one that lasts a lifetime.
Mobile computing and cloud based software has changed the retail business. Smartwerks POS has capitalized on this trend, offering jewelry retailers an all-in-one system. “Salespeople can spend more time with their customers,” said Patrick Kunish, Smartwerks’ Director of Sales. “Writing sales orders on the floor without abandoning the customer is a huge advantage we have over other POS systems.” These functions create a better customer experience through reduced time spent on transactions and real-time inventory control.
Smartwerks and sister company TylerNet® have listened to the needs of their customers for over three decades. Through valuable input, Smartwerks has increased the functionality of their POS software to enable jewelry retailers to become more productive. Integration and training are easy to learn. In only a few hours, owners and staff can be trained on the software, versus the hundreds of hours spent buried in paperwork.
In the highly competitive point of sale (POS) market, Smartwerks® ranks in the top ten for retail accounting software, according to Software Advice (http://www.softwareadvice.com/retail/accounting-software-comparison/). More than a simple cash register, today’s point of sale software provides inventory management, sales data, and a centralized accounting of financial data.
