Commercial shoe retailers face a unique set of challenges beyond those of a typical shoe store. Safety Shoes retailers have to accommodate commercial clients that subsidize employee shoe purchases and also offer employees the ability to pay for safety equipment via payroll deductions. Servicing commercial clients often includes being able to accommodate a myriad of billing options, consolidated invoicing, customer specific price discounts, and sending the shoe store to the client via “Shoe Mobile”, to name just a few.
SafeShoes Plus from Soft Intelligence extends the capabilities of CounterPoint SQL to handle all of the requirements faced by Commercial and Industrial Safety Shoe retailers.
SafeShoes Plus starts by giving you the ability to identify Commercial customers within your standard CounterPoint SQL database. SafeShoesPlus adds “Parent” customers that will be billed for sales of shoes and safety equipment to their “child” employees.
SafeShoes Plus processes unique sales tickets to individual employees and automatically consolidates the sales tickets , by customer purchase order or voucher, into commercial invoices. Built-in CounterPoint capabilities lets you e-mail, print, or save the invoices. With the SafeShoes Plus add-on module you get a complete “parent/child” accounts receivable solution for your commercial accounts. The client receives one “master” invoice rather than hundreds of sales tickets, you receive one payment, and your accounts receivable personnel only have one cash application to apply.
Commercial shoe retailers typically must identify inventory styles with far greater detail than the traditional footwear retailer. Commercial clients need to be aware of safety ratings, electrical hazard capabilities, insulation, waterproofing and a host of other classifications. The SafeShoes Plus module takes advantage of CounterPoint’s extensive list of user definable item fields and adds all the additional fields that safety shoe retailers need.
