INVENTORY ITEM SEARCH

The Xena system has a comprehensive inventory search allowing for anyone using the system to find a particular item quickly and easily. There are many search parameters that can be used as well as eight categories to refine the search.

PDA USES - STOCK TAKE AND MORE


Stock take is every retailers nightmare, from deciding if its best to close the store and do a full stock take to the sheer time it takes to run one of them.

Xena helps with this in the form of PDA stock takes. This allows you to run through a stock take with ease and can even be done while the store is open and selling.

Take the pain out of your Stock Takes with Xena

There are other uses for the PDA that make this a invaluable addition to your store. Scan a price and tell at a glance if the ticket is showing correctly, also you can have staff in larger stores scan items for customers saves on having to make a trip to the counter.

With the PDA in hand receipting stock is reduced to a simple scan, imput the quantity and your done, this no fuss approach will get you through your stock orders in no time.

PURCHASE ORDER CREATION


All retail systems need robust processes in place to bring in goods to sell. Like all Xena systems creating a Purchase Order is handled efficiently.

PURCHASE ORDER RECEIPT


The Payments system details how payments can be made against either Account or Lay-by sales within the Xena system.

There is also another method for making Account Payments from the Back Office area of the software.

TICKETING


Unlike most retail software with very basic ticketing systems, Xena outshines them all with comprehensive array of ticketing options from simple shelf labels to full A3 posters and beyond. You are only limited by the printer that is in use.

As well as the standard interface detailed above the ticketing system also works directly from the receipting of Purchase Orders as part of the final step you can print out the labels you need when you bring in the goods.

It really could not be any easier.

PROMOTIONAL ANALYSIS

This tool gives the retailer the ability to compare advertised products with the same product on a non-advertised week. The benefit of this is it can be seen at a glance if the advertising is working or not.

Also of note is the ability to look at historical data in the same way, go back 12 months to see an old advertising period and if a product did not sell then there is no point advertising it in the new period.

TOP/BOTTOM ITEMS

This reporting tool is a integral part of our Retail Intelligence system. It allows the retailer to generate a report that gives them their best selling items by a number of factors and filters such as GP% (Gross Profit), Units Sold, Where they were sold and many others.

With this information in hand it is easy to create a advertising campaign targetting these products and it will also greatly help with any stocking decisions to be made.
