Jewellery business sales and stock systems specialist, Pursuit Software, reported an enthusiastic response to the new cloud-computing options it debuted at IJL.
Its two new products for retailers – Pursuit Entry Level and Personal EPoS – were shown at IJL and Mike Burns, managing director of the company, was delighted with the number of enquiries and interest in their latest innovations.
“Although our systems are widely used by retailers, our new Wholesale App sales aid has had the effect of drawing attention to our manufacturer-focussed systems. They have been in our portfolio for as long as the retail sales, stock monitoring back-office systems we pioneered well over a decade ago,” he added.
Burns explained that the new entry level product is a sales and stock records system designed for fashion jewellers and owners of smaller shops that, until now, may have considered technology-based sales tools to be out of their reach.
He said: “The system comprises three inter-connected modules. The first handles till functions, the second records sales, the third contains stock listings. Each sale is automatically communicated to the stock module, which means the retailer always has an accurate number of items of any one type currently in stock. In short, it gives a moving picture of sales and the item-by-item inventory position – a live, rolling stock-take, if you like.
“It is best explained as a downscaled Lifestyle derivative. It combines essential till functions with itemised stock listings and the current stock level. Like our iPad-based Lifestyle till and stock records sales tool, it is designed to help change the dynamics of the selling process,” Burns commented.
According to Pursuit, the advantage of their products is that they operate in real time, meaning that all records are automatically as up to the minute as the most recent transaction.
