The Aralco Retail Management Systems is designed to work in a large multi-store network or in a simple single store operation.

Aralco Retail Systems is capable of multiple registers within one location using local area networking (ideal for department stores or multi-lane grocery operations), or single POS registers in each location, communicating via the Internet to the main SQL server located in your head office or in any data center.

 

 

 

In the case of a single store, the entire program can be setup on one machine or separated into a server (holding the main back office functions) and POS terminals on independent computers connected together via local area networking.

Aralco Retail Management and POS Systems is robust and fully scalable without limits on the number of POS or Back office stations, store locations and database sizes.

With its feature-rich and fail-safe software, Aralco POS Systems are successfully installed widely for Apparel, Footwear, Grocery and Specialty Stores in many parts of the world.

DOT is the lifestyle and multi-label chain-store retailer and distributor carrying sportswear, footwear, bags and accessories from international brands such as Adidas, Puma, Hellolulu, Nixon, Herchel, New Balance, Anello etc.

In 2015, Aralco Retail Management and POS Software Systems was successfully rolled out at DOT from Head Office, warehouses to all retail stores to overcome inadequate inventory control and  limited functionalities of their previous pos software. 

DOT's operational efficiency has since increased tremendously with Aralco's real-time data capability and its comprehensive management software from Back Office Systems to the POS.

.

 

Two years later in 2017, DOT needed an online presence to catch on the fast growing Internet shopping trend in Singapore. Predicted by Internet giant Google, the size of Singapore’s E-commerce market will grow more than five times to be worth US$5 over billion within 10 years.

After a long and thorough evaluation process with vendors of E-ccommerce solutions, DOT awarded the development contract to IRMCS in September 2017.

The development of the custom website/E-commerce includes the API integration to their existing Aralco Retail Systems for unifying DOTs' multiple business channels into one platform. 

 

THE RESULT

 

Unifying Commerce

Custom-built with WordPress/Woocommerce, https://dotshoponline.com/ went live in early 2018 with integration to Aralco's centralized inventory, CRM systems, loyalty points program.

This successful integration merges the web store with distribution and retail channels onto a single software platform - empowering DOT with an unified-data environment to be efficient operationally, more customer-centric and customer-friendly.

 

Unified E-commerce

Data synchronization between Aralco and the website/E-commerce takes place every few minutes to update:

  • New and changed product information
  • Inventory status where out of stock SKUs are automatically taken off from E-commerce's brand/product listing

 

Vice versa, web orders and its details are e-sent instantly, with email notifications, by the Web server to Aralco and 3PL (Third Party Logistic) via APIs for immediate:

  • Stock reservation in the Aralco's Inventory Systems
  • Back office order processing for the respective pick-up locations
  • Shipping preparation and packing
  • Scheduling by the courier (3PL) to collect the order from the designated pick-up locations for delivery to the customer 

 

Unified Loyalty Points Program

Loyalty or Frequent Shopper Program is a standard module in Aralco Retail Systems and DOT Management team launched this program in conjunction with the DOT E-commerce to promote Loyalty Membership to both their online and in-store customers. 

The same member can make purchases on DOT E-commerce or at any of their physical stores using the same account number to accumulate loyalty points earned. Customers' points can be redeemed against future purchases on the E-commerce's checkout or at each store's POS station.   

Customers now enjoy a greater shopping experience getting loyalty points reward seamlessly wherever whenever they shop at DOT.  

 

DOT customers can log in to their Ecommerce account to review their Loyalty Points status

 

Hosted Payment Gateways

DOT online checkout payment options includes Wirecard for Master and Visa Card, Paypal and OneCash for 4-equal month instalment plan. 

Prior to selecting any of the payment options at the checkout, customers can choose to redeem any available loyalty points or applicable E-promotion voucher, with validation controls by the Web server.
