Southern Steer Butcher, a leading name in the butcher industry, is excited to announce the implementation of a new point-of-sale (POS) system, ECRS. “This new system will streamline operations and enhance the customer experience at all Southern Steer Butcher locations”, says John O’Brien, Strategic Implementation & Productivity at Southern Steer Franchising Int’l.
As a retail business, a POS system is an essential tool for processing transactions, managing inventory, and tracking customer data. The new ECRS system will provide Southern Steer Butcher with a range of advanced features, including ECRS' CATAPULT POS solution, which powers thousands of food and beverage retail locations across North America.
Benefits of New P.O.S. Technology
With CATAPULT, Southern Steer can easily manage all inventory items and processes from the parent store, providing a turn-key solution for franchisee locations. Each Southern Steer location is also equipped with CATAPULT POS technology as well as ECRS AutoScale, a middleware- free scale solution that runs directly from data in the CATAPULT database. This will allow butchers to increase production and profit and minimize waste.
One of the main benefits of the CATAPULT Retail POS system is its “Unified Transaction Logic®”. This allows for a single platform that updates in real-time and gives users a seamless experience, no matter where or when they shop. Additionally, the system’s enterprise management feature allows retailers to monitor data for all stores and warehouses from one place, reducing technical overhead costs and complexity.
The ECRS system also offers real-time inventory data, efficient inventory tracking, demand forecasting and computer assisted ordering. This can help retailers to automate the ordering process and save on labor costs. Another feature is the customer loyalty & marketing module, which offers customized loyalty programs and email campaigns to incentivize repeat business and increase basket sizes.
The ECRS system is also designed to be user-friendly, with an intuitive interface and comprehensive training resources for employees. This can help to reduce the learning curve for new employees and improve efficiency across the board. In addition to these benefits, the ECRS system is also designed to be flexible and scalable, making it a good fit for businesses of all sizes. This is especially important for Southern Steer Butcher, which is experiencing record growth in the southeast.
P.O.S. system will also enhance customer experience
Southern Steer Butcher’s new ECRS system will help to streamline operations and enhance the customer experience, ensuring that customers can shop at their own pace and convenience. Not only this, but it will also help to reduce waste and improve efficiency, leading to cost savings for the business. “We shopped several P.O.S. systems and believe we have found the unicorn that will provide benefits to both sides of our business”, says Founder Greg Snyder, “Overall, the ECRS system will help Southern Steer Butcher to grow and continue to provide customers with the best possible experience.”
