Aralco software is intuitive and very easy to operate - the Aralco POS for book, music, and stationery stores provide retailers with a way to control inventory, manage customers, track sales, and all in real-time.
These types of stores have massive inventories that are hard to keep track of and that need to be organized by publisher/author/artist, album or book title, ISBN, and editions, categories, or genres. The system must also be agile and robust enough to manage other areas accurately and quickly such as a high volume of purchase orders issued (to their suppliers each month), a long scalable list of SKUs, loyal customers and debtors, and voluminous sales transactions across locations.
Aralco’s POS systems' powerful features improve and drive up your productivity and profitability at every location, and the centralized back-office systems with strong software functionality give you total control of your business.

LENGTHY PRODUCT NAMES
Another essential feature is Aralco Retail systems' capability to support more than 300 characters to describe lengthy product names making it easy and quick to search for titles of books, songs, or pieces of music.
Product names are printed in full on sales receipts and invoices without abbreviation and truncation, or you can set up another set of user-definable descriptions in the product setup for:
Receipting or Invoicing
Customer Pole Display
Cashier and Customer-facing Display Screen
Even the shelf or barcoded labels generated by Aralco provides options to have multiple lines for printing long product names regardless of the label size.
INVENTORY LOOKUP WITH REAL-TIME DATA
Inventory Lookup with real-time data is available at the POS or at any BOS workstations showing stock units at hand for any SKU and its movement by location.
Hence your employees and cashiers are able to engage customers with current stock information, and at the same time managers have access to real-time stock status at every store to ensure optimal stock level.
