In this section, we have a collection of posts on retail management and POS software and queue management systems (QMS), hardware and subjects relating to IT technologies on retail and queue industries.





Apparel Retail SoftwareMany POS systems do not have adequate inventory features needed to manage merchandise that comes in sizes and colors (referred to here as dimensions).


Some merchandise may require more than two dimensions for fast access to inventory data, for example, the stock availability of this shirt's sizes and colors, and lengths of the shirt.


While typical retail businesses do not need such features, it is a must-have for apparel and footwear retailers to enable easy tracking of inventory and sales by dimensions.


Otherwise, countless hours will be wasted creating additional SKU numbers for each dimension perpetually. By doing so, collating stock and sales data by SKU numbers representing each dimension of style numbers would be cumbersome. Furthermore, it slows down the speed performance of your entire retail system significantly as it consumes more database storage unnecessarily.



Aralco POS for Apparel


Aralco's apparel POS software supports an unlimited number of dimension tables such as a table for COLOR or BLOUSE SIZE (Large, Medium, Small), or DENIM SIZE (24,26,28,30...).


The values in each dimension table are user-definable hence you can name them according to your requirement.


A product can be set up with one dimension table for COLOR only, while another can have two dimension tables (or more), for example with a COLOR and SHIRT SIZE table.


Aralco's apparel POS software supports up to 4 dimension tables per product or style.
