Best POS Solution for Meat Markets & Fish Markets

 

Tender Kobe beef braised in butter with parsley, sage, rosemary, thyme, and lemon pepper. Perfectly-cooked pork chops braised in onion gravy. Lean and nutritious wild-caught salmon cooked in honey garlic sauce. A tasty New England-style seafood boil with lobster, clams, and potatoes. Butchers and fish markets like you give customers that satisfied, warm feeling of having a great dinner with friends and loved ones. As a small grocer, you work hard every day to satisfy your customers. They’re often your friends and neighbors, and you want them to have the best meal they can afford. You also want to keep your staff paid and stay in the black every month. You’re a valuable part of the community, and you love what you do. But the job facing independent grocers is getting harder all the time. With massive agribusinesses outpricing America’s butchers and fish markets, it can be difficult to keep your business afloat.

IT Retail is here to change that. Just because you own a small grocery doesn’t mean you have to think small or think in the past. You have a future. IT Retail’s automated point-of-sale (POS) products offer you an integrated, seamless, and simple tech solution that can save your business time, energy, and thousands of dollars every month. Our technology also gives your customers –the same friends and neighbors we brought up– a quicker, more satisfying shopping experience. As a company built by and for independent grocers, we want our quarter-century experience helping people like you continue being that small grocer your community depends on for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Because we care so much about making that a reality, we are going to show you three innovations IT Retail offers to butchers and fish markets. We’ll explain why our POS analysis software will help you get a better view of how your business is doing. We’ll tell you about how we’ve made creating a customer loyalty program simple and dependable And we’ll present our best-in-class scanner/scale hardware, a favorite for having hassle-free sales at your business. By the end of this article, you’ll see why IT Retail is the company that will keep your butcher shop or fish market the one your neighbors love.

“Why do I need a POS system?”

POS systems are an integral part of any successful retail business. What cuts sell and which don’t? Is the prime rib special still too expensive for your area’s main demographic? Are customers buying more haddock or cod? What days are you doing the most business? These are the kinds of details our POS system can give you. For example, with our ‘top performers’ tool, you can see exactly what your customers are purchasing. Movers and non-movers are clear to see, so you can see whether you need to order less sirloin or more crab cakes. And our reporting is simple and clear. Our POS software renders checkout data graphs in order to help you visualize sales, filter products by department. Seeing daily and weekly sales reports as visualizations also makes you and your management team more effective at seeing a broader view of what changes need to be made over time. 

You can see historical trends emerging, helping you plan not only for next week but next year. For convenience, this data can be exported to QuickBooks to help your accounting department with billing and invoices. But what truly sets IT Retail’s grocery POS system apart is its intuitive, cloud-based design. 

Our world is constantly on the move. Imagine you have a meeting with a potential new supplier in the morning and won’t be able to make it back to your office until late. You may be a businessperson, but you have a personal life as well. What makes our cloud-based system so helpful is that you can access the data we mentioned on your laptop, or even your iPhone or Android device!

And speaking of high technology, let’s introduce one of our favorite pieces of hardware: IT Retail’s scanner/scale…

Our POS-integrated Scanner/Scale

When your customer selects their meat or fish and is ready to check out, they don’t want to wait for your cashier to take a long time. They’re not interested in watching them weigh their product, fiddle with it to get the right amount, wrap it, and label it. They may want to exchange some pleasantries, but they really want their meat or fish. That’s why our scanner/scale is such a valuable addition to your store. IT expedites checkouts and is more ergonomic for cashiers, saving your business vital minutes in the business day. IT Retail’s scanner/scale is also integrated with our POS system, which keeps important information stored in the cloud. And if you want to save on energy costs, our scanner/scale consumes 60% less energy than our competitors. The scanner/scale has a simple design, a minimum of parts, and is built to last for the long haul.  

But of course, a transaction shouldn’t be the end of the relationship between you and your client. Building a base of reliable customers is what gives your company a baseline. Keeping a dependable list of regulars is what really keeps a butcher or fish market afloat. That’s why you should also consider our automated customer loyalty software as part of your POS system.

 Customizable Loyalty Programs

Customer retention is incredibly important when running a small grocer. Customer rewards programs are a superb way to build a personal connection with your store’s brand. By partnering with Inmar, we’ve created an electronic method for creating your own customized loyalty program integrated with our POS software. This rewards system is based on points––after setting a point requirement, you’re able to set what kinds of discounts the customers receive. You can even make certain discounts only work on specific days of the week, or on holidays! 

While a general rewards program is a great way to keep customers loyal to your brand, automated customization allows you to make deeper connections with the customer. AppCard’s AI helps send tailored marketing to your clients based on their shopping habits. This helps funnel people back into your shop, maintaining a reliable base of support. With our POS system, scanner/scale, and automated customer loyalty program, you can set your independent butcher shop or fish market up for a future of success.

Keep Track of Every Employee

Speaking of employee management, we at IT Retail have created innovative software to help you with that as well.

You can check how employees are performing in risky situations, such as voids and override, and compare performance averages of your fish or meat market with those of other fish or meat markets. You can also compare employee performance across any date range and possibly discover work patterns in those employees.

If you’re still worried these statistics aren’t accurate representations of your employees’ performances, then you should know that they are captured through the POS and therefore all come from the same source.

Just like with our other reporting software, the employee management portal is straightforward yet effective, so you can manage employees as quickly as possible without sacrificing the quality of your fish or meat market.

These tracking tools can also help you dictate specific actions to specific employees. For example, you can choose when an employee signs off for the day. This portal even lets you keep certain managers from seeing every store sale.

We’re also working to address employee theft that often occurs in a POS. This illegal practice often involves an employee issuing fake refunds or voiding a legitimate transaction to steal the money. That’s why we’re developing artificial intelligence to deal with this threat.

Online Shopping

No matter how big or small your meat or fish market is, IT Retail’s POS system allows your store to sell its items online.

With our full POS integration, customers can order millions of specialty, fresh, branded goods from their personal computer or smartphone. Your store can offer a wide range of pickup and delivery options including in-store pickup, delivery, and curbside pickup. This is all thanks to many drivers and couriers we have access to from over eleven thousand zip codes and counting.

We understand how competitive the grocery industry is, so we partnered with several online shopping/delivery platforms such as Mercato, Freshop, and Instacart to help grow your fish or fish, or meat market into a successful business. While you take care of the store, these platforms will take care of payments and refunds that come in and out of the store. They even cover your store’s marketing–whether it’s online or in person.

Bottom Line: IT Retail POS for Meat Markets and Fish Markets Can Make a Difference

At the beginning of this article, we listed off just a few of the delicious foods that your customers make with your products. They depend on you for fresh, high-quality meat and fish that can make or break everything from their lunch break to game-day tailgating. In order to better serve them––and your bottom line––contact IT Retail so that we can give you a quick, fair quote. We’re in the business of making sure independent grocers as you succeed. So let’s make that connection. Your neighbors will thank you with more years of business, community, and smiles around the table.
