  Point-of-Sale

The ECRS CATAPULT point-of-sale solution is the starting gate for complete retail enterprise automation.  CATAPULT's class-leading touchscreen technology, combined with hundreds of customizable display options, make both the cashier and customer checkout experience simple, fast, secure, and accurate. The data processed through the point-of-sale provides information that fuels hundreds of reports and state-of-the-art analytic tools available with CATAPULT Back Office functionality. This data, collected from real-time sales activity, provides the visibility you need to run your business effectively on a daily basis. You can plan staff schedules based on sales data from previous years and shopping patterns, create promotions based on sales trends, track customer membership, gain insight into vital financial information, and automate your inventory management. Not only does this means countless hours saved from tedious manual labor, but it also means bottom line growth by maximizing store resources, enhancing customer service, and preventing loss from inventory and pricing errors. CATAPULT also links with other ECRS solutions, such as Supplier Gateway™, using LogicSync™ business logic technology to improve overall enterprise performance.

 

REGISTERGUARD™

CATAPULT Keeps Your Business Up & Running
 

CATAPULT is the one software solution you can trust to keep your store checking out customers quickly and efficiently hour after hour, day after day. After many years of design and development, ECRS has perfected true POS data redundancy. RegisterGuard™ was designed with you, the retailer, in mind. If the local network stops working, each CATAPULT POS terminal continues to operate independently without relying on the network to process transactions. Unlike competing systems, RegisterGuard insures that mission-critical POS functionality continues to operate as normal, even when your network has stopped functioning. Price promotions will start and end as scheduled. Item lookups, customer lookups, house charges, house payments and even credit, debit, and EBT continue to function with little or no restrictions. Once the network and POS terminals are restored the system automatically updates the system server. RegisterGuard is fully automatic, requiring no scheduled item file preparation.

 

 

 

 

SIMPLIFIED STAFF TRAINING

Because of the consistent and intuitive User Interface (UI) found with all CATAPUL T applications and because each POS terminal screen is completely customizable to fit specific store, department, or cashier needs – training can be completed in a matter of minutes. This is a great benefit during peak times, such as Holiday seasons, when you need to hire additional help for a short period of time. You can even set POS screens for certain times of day to facilitate speedy checkouts and cashier ease-of-use. For example, you can create a screen for the morning hours with a pre-built menu key for coffee and a different screen for after-school hours with soda pre-set as a menu key. The possibilities are essentially endless, making both staff and customers happy. 

 

OUT-OF-THE-BOX CUSTOMIZATION...WITH ROOM TO GROW 

CATAPULT's flexibility is the key advantage to enhancing, expanding, and streamlining your retail operation. CATAPULT's interface is powered by our exclusive Function Generator technology to help you facilitate unlimited tenders, tax tables, discounts, preset item keys, menu keys, and a variety of other functions tailored to fit your operation. This exclusive feature provides you with the solutions your business needs today with the built-in adaptability you need to expand in the future.

 

 

 

 

ITEM PRICE AND SCAN ACCURACY

Accurate POS item scans and correct inventory pricing are critical to your bottom-line and to customer satisfaction. In fact, nothing can turn a customer away faster than pricing errors. If store inventory prices are not being properly updated in accordance with supplier costs, then you are not only leaving profits on the table but actually losing money. ECRS works with you to ensure your CATAPULT database is accurate across the entire enterprise to avoid incorrect item scans, manual price or item entry at the POS, and pricing errors. This attention to detail will have a big impact on your bottom line.
