PSS is introducing a Customer Saver Card that has the following functionality:
To take advantage of the many features of Microsoft’s Retail Management System (RMS) Point of Sale retail system PSS have introduced a Saver Card system that will be issued at the till to the customer.
The card will be a “credit card” size and akin to Christmas Saver card. It can be used as a “regular customer card” in conjunction with a loyalty scheme and also it can Utilise existing Deposit / Layaway business logic where a single customer can put aside a nominal amount against the total sale price of one or more products, over a period of time.
What differentiates the Customer Saver Card is that they can load money onto the card which can be used against one or more products the store sells but these items won’t be taken out of stock until the money is taken off the card at the POS.
The card may have an expiry date which suits the business and stock situation.
The card should have an anti-theft feature, perhaps the customers date of birth in dd/mm/yy format so that the POS operator would ask the customer for confirmation.
Use the the information gathered on the system for marketing and customer loyalty schemes to maintain your customer base.
This is an ideal method of facilitating customers who wish to subscribe to a “Christmas Club / Regular Savings Club”
