Better yet, do that all on the cloud so that it doesn’t clog up your computer and is easily accessible anytime, anywhere. Become a better store manager by analysing your sales, products, and staff performance by store, allowing you to pre-emptively identify problem areas and patch them up quickly.
Cloud Payment Terminal
Cloud Point-of-Sale (POS) isn’t the only convenience of the cloud. Through a feature called mPOS, you can even accept payments via debit or credit cards on the spot, wherever your customers are. This service is made available to you with low credit card transaction fees.
SMS isn’t dead yet! Even if Facebook and WhatsApp are more wide-spread nowadays, SMS remains one of the most cost-effective was to reach your mobile customers. In fact, keeping track of SMSes is going to be way easier than on those social media platforms precisely because there aren’t that many SMSes coming in anymore. If you have no idea how to start crafting a character-limited pitch through SMS (hey, WhatsApp is unlimited, after all!), Maxis ONERetail also comes with ready-made templates in English, Malay, and Chinese for you to start with.
