San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) June 03, 2014
Pose, an entire, cloud-based point-of-service (POS) solution for small-to-medium size retailers, announced native QuickBooks integration to its affordable, easy-to-use offering. With Pose’s latest product, every transaction now automatically feeds into a merchant’s QuickBooks system. Pose’s new offering gives SMBs peace-of-mind as they no longer have to worry about the propensity for errors that is often introduced in the importing and exporting of accounting data from POS systems unable to seamlessly connect to QuickBooks. With the time-savings gained, merchants can focus resources and energy on what they do best: engaging customers with new product offerings and services to grow their business. The first and only company in its space to offer native QuickBooks integration, Pose provides a striking alternative to SMBs that have been burdened with complicated, costly and disconnected systems. This announcement comes only a few months after Pose emerged from beta with thousands of SMB customers around the world.
“Pose was designed specifically to unshackle retailers from inefficient, rigid and expensive systems. We understand that the cash register is their livelihood, but also know there has got to be a better way -- and that’s where Pose comes in,” said Dror Liwer, CEO of Pose. “Our new QuickBooks integration saves time, streamlines operations, and ensures accurate reporting. Instead of being stuck in the weeds with accounting, businesses can focus on ways to grow their business. Pose helps small retailers out-maneuver and outgun giant retailers with better customer service and engagement.”
Pose targets small, brick-and-mortar retailers. According to 2011 census data, there are almost 13 million small businesses (under 100 employees) in the U.S. alone, with the Small Business Administration attributing 54% of all U.S. sales to SMBs. Domestically, small businesses represent a huge but highly underserved technology market, with the number of small retailers worldwide likely reaching the tens of millions.
End-to-End Solution -- a Vital Guerrilla Strategy for Small Businesses
Pose is a SaaS solution that allows small retailers to keep real-time tabs on their business from anywhere, at any time and from any device. This is highly appealing to many merchants who want or may need to view reports, track inventory, and manage employees remotely while on-the-go.
Easy-on-the-eyes and super friendly, Pose requires nothing extra in the way of equipment -- just a Web browser and Internet connection. Setup is a snap and there is little to no training needed. The company’s straightforward, pay-as-you-go subscription pricing model is also well within reach of SMBs. What’s more, Pose doesn’t come with any strings attached. It is totally flexible to work around a merchant’s needs. SMBs can easily scale up or down with seasonal business. Unlike other competing alternatives, Pose isn’t high maintenance either and won’t try to tie merchants down with unnecessary, long-term relationships (i.e., contracts).
Pose enables SMBs to manage inventory, employees, and customer relationships through a fully integrated, online cash register, which also lets users maintain their existing workflow. According to a recent Nilson Report, payment registers at retail stores are the focal point in processing U.S. credit and debit card volume, which amounted to $4 trillion in 2013 alone.
With Pose, merchants can integrate baseline features directly into core POS services such as CRM and then just upload data only once to access an entire rich ecosystem of functionality.
