Winston-Salem, N.C. - Nationwide Marketing Group (NMG) has partnered with ePass Enterprise, Tyler, STORIS and Reliable Softworks to provide its member dealers with the latest and most effective point-of-sale (POS) software.
The new POS providers will ensure that members have access to the latest technologies to help them effectively manage their businesses, the buying and marketing organization said.
"Finding a reliable POS software provider is an essential part of any retail business," noted NMG COO Les Kirk. "The need to integrate new technologies like smartphones and tablets with POS, dealer web initiatives and consumer financing makes it crucial for our group to partner with the leaders in the POS channel."
The benefits of a computerized POS system include accurate accounting, better management of service and delivery, reduced inventory shrinkage, in-depth reports, faster checkouts and the ability to easily collect contact information from their customers, the group said.
According owner Nick Faiola, his ePASS program can provide dealers with a simple base system to a fully automated sales and service environment with integrated finance features. The system was purposely written as a Windows application to give it a "unique yet user-friendly feel that is compatible with any PC environment," he said.
Tyler has similarly delivered state-of-the-art POS inventory control solutions to the specialty dealer channel for 30 years. The tools help companies make better buying and selling decisions that can improve their bottom lines, said national accounts manager Rick Albert.
STORIS is a fully integrated POS and supply chain management solution that connects all aspects of retail operations in a real time, Windows-based intuitive platform. According to new business development director Mark Van Winkle, the system electronically delivers new features monthly and major revisions annually at no additional charge.
Mike Baron, owner of Reliable Softworks, is himself an independent dealer and NMG member with over 60 years of retail sales and service experience. In 2006 his team developed and began using Reliable Softworks in their own stores and in 2008 made it available to other dealers.
"Many of our clients are appreciative of how much we understand their business and what they go through every day," said Baron. "Our POS system is proven to cut costs, increase cash flow, and improve management control."
