Akamai Point of Sale Hawaii Furniture Store POS software precisely calculates incentive payments (SPIF's) and manages other compensation plans for sales teams.
When you create an invoice, the salesperson is attached to it for commission or history purposes. Normally, just one salesperson is attached to each invoice, but if required, a switch can be turned on in Akamai Point of Sale Hawaii Furniture Store POS software to allow Split Commissions for multiple sales people. In Industrial Sales, the sales person often "Owns" the customer and gets the commission regardless of which clerk processed the order. If this is the case for your business, then you can attach the salesperson to the customer instead. Both methods are supported in Akamai Point of Sale Hawaii Furniture Store POS software.

Akamai Point of Sale Hawaii Furniture Store POS software also allows the sales rep to quickly access the Sales/Order History of a particular customer or prospect. This information can be viewed, sorted, and organized. The resulting data can then be used in marketing campaigns, cross selling, call lists, and promotional offers.
Akamai Point of Sale Hawaii Furniture Store POS software has a strong Kit System, also known as Assemblies or Bill of Materials. Kits are essentially a collection of items that can be sold at one time by selling just one part number instead of having to enter all the part numbers of all the items being sold. They can be used for small scale manufacturing businesses, to selling groupings of inventory in a store.
It can handle Dynamic Kits to remove all the raw materials as the kit is placed on the invoice, or Static Kits to remove the raw materials when the kits are manufactured and put in stock. There are also many options available on how to display the kit on the invoice and how to price the kit.
Modifiers are used to configure an inventory item so when you sell it you can specify item-specific options (for example, a 2-seat or 3-seat couch, it's color, type of wood trim, etc).
You can have additional costs associated with specific options and specific options can have their own part number. You can link inventory items that have the same modifier options so if you need to change an option you do so once and it applies to all linked items.
There are two types of modifier options within our Furniture Store software:
Integrated Selection - these items are contained within the item on the invoice. The descriptions show as comments and the cost and retail prices are included in the line Price and Retail Price.
Non Integrated Selection - these items show as separate items on the invoice along with any associated charges. There must be actual parts created for these items.
At any point during the sale, you can set the delivery date for your customer. Once you set the delivery date, an appointment is created in the delivery scheduler. Each delivery that is scheduled can be assigned to a specific employee, and will remind them of the delivery date and time.
The Special Orders feature in Akamai Point of Sale Hawaii Furniture Store POS software provides a method of ordering stock for a specific customer. It can be used to bring in items not normally kept in stock or to order items in specific sizes, colors or styles. You can special order any item or part that is not currently in stock or you can enter an ordered quantity on the invoice line and set the quantity to zero, then special order the required size, color or style as required. With Special Orders, If you try to sell an item that is not in stock, the system will prompt you with a pop up window and ask if you need to special order the item.
By placing the item on special order, the system will ensure that you do not forget to order it. And when you do order it, you simply just "drag" it onto the purchase order without needing to retype anything.
When the item arrives and you are adding it to stock, the Akamai Point of Sale Hawaii Furniture Store POS Software will remind you of the special orders to ensure you set them aside and not sell them to other customers in error. In addition, you can print shipping labels during the add stock procedure and attach it to the box right away, before you forget.
Akamai Point of Sale Hawaii Furniture Store POS software will keep track of the quantity of items sold on a month by month basis. This quick summary will give you a quick and easy view of the inventory movement. When printing inventory movement reports, you can ask for the sales for given set of months, or you can print a quarterly or seasonal sales report.
The system also stores the full sales history by linking the inventory item to each and every sale ever made. When printing a sales history, you will be able to view the date of sale, invoice number, customer name, quantity sold, and selling price. Optionally, the system can even print the comments associated with the sale of the item. If there is an item recall from the manufacturer, it will be easy for you to track down all the customers. But even more important, if you have an accessory for the item, you can mail or contact each person and let them know about the item, allow you to better sell to your existing customers.
Have you ever had a customer come into your store with an old item, without a receipt, and insist that it is still under warranty because they only purchased it last July.

Not only that, but all of their previous invoices and purchase history are available at your fingertips. Search for a specific product that they purchased or the invoice that it was purchased on.

When a customer returns to a store, verifying customer satisfaction on former purchases or intelligently suggesting new purchases has great impact. A detailed purchase history is also invaluable for controlling merchandise returns or monitoring discounts.

When accounts receivable invoices are entered, they are immediately posted to the customer account and to the aged accounts receivable list. The Aged Accounts Receivable report shows you who owes you money, how much, and how long it has been outstanding in the current, 30 day, 60 day and 90 day columns.
As an option, you can reprint this report for any time back in history. This is very important as you might start invoicing in the current month, before being finished with the system in the previous month and printing that previous months report. Many of our competitors cannot print the reports for previous months even if they let you enter data for the previous months.
Once you are finished the entry for a month, you can print or email statements to the customer.
Maintain your company's identity by creating your own statements. You can add your logo and specify exactly where you want the fields printed. We recommend using a laser printer because of the speed and quality of the print, but if you are using an old dot matrix printer, Akamai Point of Sale Hawaii POS software has a special setup section so that the statements can be optimized for different printers.
When payments are received, you can specify how much was paid against each invoice. This allows for better control of the system and easier reconciliation with your customers. Of course, Akamai Point of Sale Hawaii offers several shortcut keys to simply pay all the invoices in one fell swoop or to pay invoices up to a given amount.
You can enter invoices into any month in the current year or previous year, and reprint most reports for any given period. This allows you to continue invoicing first thing in the morning of a new month, even if the back office is not finished charging interest, adjusting accounts and printing statements. Many other systems require that you completely finish a month before being able to start a new month or year.
On the customer account, you can specify the credit limit for the customer, in addition to the price schedule to use, charge type, and comments. If you try to create an invoice that will put the customer over their credit limit, the system will warn you. If you do not have the security clearance to override, the invoice can not be completed until the account is paid.
Collections on outstanding debts are never fun, but Akamai Point of Sale Hawaii can make them easier. You can print an aged A/R report, complete with customer name, phone number and a list of all the outstanding invoices. Optionally, this report can be configured to only include customers with balances older than a certain number of days, such as over 60 days or 90 days so that you don't have to manually skip over the current customers.
As you call each customer, you can enter your comments into the appointment scheduler and set a date to review their file and ensure they have paid, and if not, to call them back. By keeping track of all you customer contacts, it's easier to control when to call and remind them of their past promises.
Posting vendor bills is easy. For example, when you receive inventory, the total amount of the purchase is posted to just one ledger number. The inventory being received is listed and detailed in the purchase order module, so there is no need to duplicate this information.
If you negotiate payments in installments such as 3 equal payments, Akamai Point of Sale Hawaii Furniture Store POS software will track those distributed due dates, remind you when you need to pay the bill, and how much to pay.
While entering accounts payable bills, the prices on the original purchase order can easily be cross-referenced to ensure they are correct and that you have received the goods.

If you are entering information from a previously handwritten check, you can do that without having to print them. Incredibly, many other systems force you to print the checks, regardless. After creating a check, you can choose to post-and-pay it, or simply batch for later payment. This lets you spend some time setting up the checks. Once you are ready, you can load the checks into the printer and then print and post the batch at one time.
In some cases, you may get a large shipment of goods from a supplier and be allowed to pay in thirds, one month at a time. Windward System Five will allow you to enter·a time payment plan, with distributed payments. This information is used with the cash requirement report to determine which bills have to be paid.
If you deal with buying groups, then you'll buy the inventory and goods from a supplier but pay the buying group. This is because to get great discounts, the buying groups often pay the bills very quickly or at least guarantee payment.
When you use buying groups, you'll be able to report on all the purchases from a given supplier, even if you don't owe them any money, and be able to look at the buying group from a financial point of view to see what you owe.
You can even use this technology if you purchase goods with your credit card. There, you buy from a supplier but pay Visa, Mastercard or American Express.
Akamai Point of Sale Hawaii business accounting software is fully integrated. That is, when you create an invoice, the general ledger is updated immediately instead of having to run a batch process at some later time.
Batch processing was the old way of handling the ledger transactions and it had many problems. Most notably is the fact that a separate procedure is done to post the invoices, payments, bills and checks into the general ledger with lots of chances for something to go wrong. More importantly, a batch total is posted, making it very difficult to reconcile the accounts at a later date. We have seen many examples of tax auditors having to spend days or weeks looking through the paper batch reports, and nobody wants the tax police hanging around.
With Akamai Point of Sale Hawaii accounting software, each line you see on an invoice is stored as its own record in the database. When viewing the general ledger, the system views the same lines, but from a different point of view and on a different index. The result is simplicity and therefore little chance of problems. If you edit and fix an invoice, the ledger is fixed at the same time because it's the same record. This also saves a huge amount of hard drive space and backup storage requirements. And then, when the Sales Tax Police do arrive, they can view the ledger details and for each line, they will see the date, invoice number, customer name, and amount of sales tax collected. Fast, simple and error free.
