" Merlin Software has provided us with a solution which enables us to capture higher volumes of accurate and up-to-date management information which can be used by a range of business functions to support our growth strategy. "
Merlin is a powerful, versatile software system offering complete stock management and sales functionality. The in-store programme centres upon a quick and easy-to-use Electronic Point of Sale (EPOS) package, which integrates seamlessly into a comprehensive suite of back-office store management applications.
Sitting on the shop counter, the stylish, touch-screen based, front-of-house system is the main point of sales centre for customer-facing operations. Here, all types of sales can be processed including trade and retail; account or cash-on-delivery, as required. User-specified hot-pages allow for the easy sale of an infinite number of non-barcode items. Temporary stock code creation at the point of sale allows for scan-now-update-later functions; with this function, a product can be put on sale immediately, even when there is no time for a stock code to be created in the back office system.
All EPOS functions are supported by a fully-featured stock control system, catering for a wide variety of multiple pack-size and price break options which allow items to be sold by units, length, volume and area.
Comprehensive stock search options are available in both the back-office and at the point of sale, with multi-level product type structuring allowing stock to be indexed by code, description, brand, price, supplier or manufacturer code, main and sub-category.
Powerful yet easy-to-use customer accounts cater for loyalty schemes, special discount rates, credit control (including aged debt analysis), sales daybooks and a fully integrated sales ledger for invoice processing and management (featuring invoice reprinting facilities and instant invoice despatch via email); customer statements and auto-allocation of payments are also included.
Non-destructive close down facilities allow for trial balance output at any time of the month; giving an accurate, up-to-the-minute snapshot of your business any time you want it.
Fully integrated purchase ledger functions allow for supplier invoice entry, aged invoice analysis, payment allocation facilities and purchase order daybooks with full VAT breakdowns.
