The retail POS imperative

You can’t achieve retail success unless you’re consistently meeting or exceeding customer expectations at the point of sale (POS). But as more retail competitors pop up, customers feel empowered to demand greater and greater value for their money. That’s why POS systems for retail must deliver the features you need to keep raising the bar—and must do so at a price you can afford.

FusionPOS for in-store sales and orders

Acumatica ERP has a pre-built integration to Fusion Point of Sale (FusionPOS™). FusionPOS is part of the Fusion Retail Management System (FusionRMS™), a full-featured retail POS system for centralized management in highly distributed retail and wholesale environments.

With FusionPOS, you can:

  • Eliminate duplicate data entry by using multiple CRM levels to maintain individual customers’ transaction history.
  • Update the POS without manual intervention. All items, customers, and pricing data in Acumatica ERP are automatically synchronized between the POS and the back office.
  • Streamline your operations. All transactions from the POS are automatically returned to Acumatica Sales Order Processing for final processing.
  • Reduce downtime by transacting business even when your internet connection is temporarily lost.
  • Support Phantom items – groups of items that are not physically grouped are entered as a single line item or kit, but tracked within the system individually.
  • Handle “cash and carry.”
  • Fulfill from any store or warehouse.
  • Add new customers to Acumatica CRM automatically from POS.
  • Use a configurable POS user interface.
Omni-channel distribution

With Acumatica, you can pick up or ship eCommerce orders from any store as well as a corporate location. The results are lower freight costs, a superior customer experience, and better inventory coverage. And because all of this happens within the retail POS software, you can minimize the amount of end-user training required.
