Software Support for Retail – Even the Best can Fail Without it!


support1Software support for an organization implementing a new retail ERP system is always a major point of concern. Even with a mature, installed retail ERP, support is essential as time lost in chasing support issues is costly. The experience can be further ruined if there is downtime at the shop or warehouse. Retail depends on selling and moving things quickly and during a festive season the rush of deliveries can trip up even a strong software or process. At this time, support is critical.

Issues faced like barcode is not scanning, server crashed, problem in data syncing, billing stops, etc. This is where instant and smart software support comes into play.  

Each retail ERP vendor have its own support models for its retail software systems. Some have their in-house support team and some have it outsourced to third party affiliates. These affiliates are the first-line in support and represent the vendor. Benefit of an in-house teams lies in faster comprehension of the issues and in affiliate, business users have to communicate details, due to which knowledge gaps may persist. Hence, response time could be much faster for OEM supported products than reseller supported products.   

Thus, the companies depend not only on the software, but also on the experience of the team supporting those solutions.

Credit days Check and new Credit Rules: Useful feature for Wholesalers


credit2Wholesalers and distributors raise a sale invoice for the retailers with a certain credit amount and credit days limit. With a large customer base it becomes important to track violations of this limit and in some cases restrict further invoicing to a customer. Ginesys has introduced 3 credit rules which can be configured for the customer invoicing:

  1. Check only credit amount / credit limit
  2. Check only overdue bills
  3. Check both limit and overdue bills
  4. No checks

Rule 1 was the default configuration where further invoicing could be blocked or a warning displayed if the total balance amount was exceeding the limit defined for the customer.

In Rule 2 if the wholesaler configures N days as overdue limit then software will check if there are bills more than N days old which are not fully paid before allowing further invoicing/ dispatch.

For Rule 3 bot limit and overdue days of the customer will be tested before allowing further billing.

Another great point is that we have added a tolerance to the amount which is configurable per customer. So if the limit is exceeded by only an insignificant amount then you can still allow billing to proceed. This is relevant for rule 1 and 3.

Wait there is more, you can import this configuration from an Excel file for your entire list of customers in one-shot! Isn’t that awesome?

Credit note becomes more secured with Ginesys OTP


Creditnote update GinesysMany retailers and brands issue credit notes against returned items to shoppers but do not have an idea of genuine redemption or use of the credit note. Making it mandatory to tag a genuine mobile number when generating a credit note so that a one-time password (OTP) can be sent to the same when redeeming. 

Another policy setting allows a single OTP to be generated for multiple redemption’s like loyalty points, gift voucher and credit note when being used together in the same invoice. This makes it very easy for shoppers to use multiple modes of payment at the POS.

This is just one of the ways Ginesys retail management system makes the point of sale (POS) operations less susceptible to fraud.
