WooPOS: Fast and Easy Retail POS for Ultimate Customer Experience

CIO VendorBenny Zhu, Founder & CEO
Ever imagined the disappointment of discovering the unavailability of a product after reaching the store? Sure, online shopping makes purchasing a product seem easy, but the additional $50 shipping charges incurred induce a vast majority of the retailers to stick to offline stores. This frustrating episode highlights the plight of numerous retailers who struggle with inventory management to deliver a seamless and integrated multi-store experience.

As a veteran of retail POS industry for over 20 years and rich expertise in software development, Benny Zhu, Founder & CEO of WooPOS, points out that retailers need apt POS software to manage their inventory and sales distribution across both, brick-and-mortar and online stores, from one central location in real-time. This is exactly what WooPOS brings to the table.

WooPOS proffers first-rate, versatile and customizable POS, inventory and customer management system, integrated with a popular self-hosting online shopping cart—WooCommerce, to simplify retail business and enhance profits. WooPOS is a robust, highly customizable software platform that leverages Entity Attribute Value (EAV) data model that provides retailers with unparalleled flexibility for data attributes and an assortment of customization options for dynamic operation. WooPOS’ powerful inventory management streamlines tracking, maintaining and visibility of stock levels across multiple sales channels and web stores in real-time. This empowers retailers to effectively handle inventories and transactions such as sales, purchase orders, transfers, and adjustments while managing trending sales distribution across multiple locations. “WooPOS takes in product inputs from multiple locations and automatically synchronizes that data between retail brick-and-mortar stores and online WooCommerce store,” states Zhu.

The firm also offers SooPOS, integrated with a popular hosted shopping cart—Shopify, as a quick and easy retail solution for business owners. WooPOS enables retailers to efficiently manage loyalty programs such as points, memberships, gift certificates, and gift cards, to expand customer relationships and maximize omnichannel effectiveness.

“With over 500 reports and options, and a spectrum of variables and query filters to identify trends, our software helps retailers collect and analyze customer data to drive intelligent business decisions. This provides complete visibility of sales and inventory, store performance, sales force and the products that bring in revenue,” Zhu adds. WooPOS guarantees unlimited installation of its enterprise-level POS software and backup on personal computers and laptops with full offline functionality for business owners, either working at home, traveling or on a trade show.

WooPOS graces its clientele with a simplified software installation process and connectivity to WooCommerce, to synchronize products, customers and order data while leveraging WooPOS’ cloud database to synchronize multiple local databases without additional costs. Recently, one of WooPOS’ clients, Vacuums R Us—a full-service vacuum store in Colorado offering a diverse selection of new and refurbished vacuum cleaners, had the repairs and maintenance performed onsite by seasoned technicians. However, Vacuum R Us needed a robust POS system to track their customers and special orders. The client was faced with a challenge of frequently creating new work orders, adding special ordered parts to the work order, and retaining customer’s machine at the store with an attached work order for service. After implementing WooPOS in their infrastructure, the client was able to effectively track customer order with a simplified and efficient workflow.

With over 30 years of experience in retail POS software development and having released its Android application on Google Play Store, WooPOS launched its first integrated payment page with WorldPay for the US merchants earlier this year. Upon recently joining the Retail Solutions Providers Association (RSPA), WooPOS strives to leverage its in-depth expertise in the field of retail software to develop a new web-based hybrid POS system that enables simultaneous operations of both online-based and offline Windows-based systems. “We will increase payment integrations and add more shopping carts to provide flexibility, and a wide variety of choices for users,” Zhu concludes.
