Liquor and Wine Testimonial
“When we began looking at new point-of-sale systems, we had demonstrations from many different vendors. NCR CounterPointprovided the best possible outcome for our business,” she says. “It’s user-friendly, safe, secure, and accurate.”
Fourteen years later, they’re still using CounterPoint. “While the system is user-friendly, it still provides all of the security checks we desire. Our inventory is now easily managed, when it used to be quite time consuming, with numerous variances.”
Simplifying inventory management is just one the ways NCR CounterPointhas helped seize complete control of her stores. “In our prior systems, if our inventory was off, we weren’t sure if it was shoplifting, internal theft, or just a flaw in the point-of-sale system. With CounterPoint, our inventory remains extremely accurate, and our loss is well below retail averages.”
While it certainly takes more than a top-of-the-line point-of-sale package to stay in business for seven decades, NCR CounterPoint has been a valuable asset. “CounterPoint has helped us grow our business by allowing us to be more efficient in many aspects. Whether it is taking inventory, placing vendor orders, or in satisfying our customers’ needs, NCR CounterPointhas helped us do it all.”
