In Ginesys Store Management System Software it is required to allocate item master (the item details) to a store before any transactions can be done in the store. Item master means important information like name, product type, price, brand, color, category, size, material, SKU etc. Ginesys retail store POS software now makes it possible for stores to search item details even when it’s not available in the POS system through allocation or goods receipt. The mechanism allows searching the item detail entered in the head office inventory management software. If item is found in HO, the item details can be downloaded. If allowed sales could also be made with zero inventory at store since item data is already available. After making the sale at the store POS, physical stock could be procured from the warehouse to complete the transaction.

Credit note was already available in Ginesys Retail ERP but the option to redeem that credit note at any of the retail store of the Retail chain was not available which was hampering the flexibility, control and subsequently the customer experience. Ginesys now equipped with Centralized Credit Note feature which enables the customer to redeem the credit note in any of the retail stores of the retail chain in which it has been issued. This will not only enhance the customer experience but will make the process of credit note issue/redemption flexible, more centrally controlled , hassle free and less prone to pilferage & errors.
A credit note is a commercial document issued by a retailer to the customer in case of return of an item/product to them. The retailer usually issues a credit note for the same or lower amount than the invoice, and then sets it off against a balance due from other transactions done by the customer at the store. There may some other cases as well where credit note is issued, such as in case of an advance against a product, but predominantly it happens in case of items returned.
Use of credit note is advantageous to Retailer in comparison to hard cash or account credit to the customer as
- It will help in avoiding unreasonable returns
- It will also ensure that sales once done won’t be reversed.
- It may also pursue the customer to visit the store again which may result in some extra purchase and eventually results in additional sales.
- It will also result in hassle free returns and thus will help in maintaining healthy relationship with the customer
- It is easy to manage and has negligible loop holes
All in all a win win situation for Retailer and customer.
Normally, these policies affect all the transactions in a financial year. A robust Retail ERP should be able to handle such exceptions for the transactions at the point-of-sale level.
Ginesys Retail ERP now has built the option of easy tax re-calculation for already settled dates at the store, even if the Government applies a taxation policy applicable from a previous date.
Such significant enhancement not only save the precious time of employees but also prevents the risk of manual error. Prior to this enhancement, all such processing was done manually. But now, all tax re-calculations and sync with the HO data will be done automatically.
