Minimarket

Are you thinking of opening a self service minimarket? Below you will find the recipe for this kind of store.

This type of solution is suitable for rather small or average spaces of approximately 80 to 150 m2. Because of their reduced size this type of stores rarely have more than one point of sale. Most of these shops sell groceries and other basic goods. That is why they are also referred to as convenience stores.

In order for this type of store to achieve success featuring a large array of basic goods is mandatory. Because of reduced space that only allows small quantities of goods to be displayed, supplying needs to be done frequently and regularly. This is why, in order for the business to succeed, employing a complete supply and cash management system is vital.

Considering these specific needs we recommend you a solution consisting of POS terminals for the front office and a central server that also acts as a back office work station.

In the following graphic you will see the necessary elements for this solution:

Because of the high flow of goods that normally have a producer bar code small quantities supplied by few back office operators we recommend a highly automatic data collection. The investment in a mobile data collecting terminal to be used in goods reception and inventory will rapidly be recuperated.

We also recommend using a POS touchscreen terminal. This will be easier to use and selling various services with the touch of a button or easily selecting types of coupons will be possible.

If the general store keeps fresh produce like fruit or vegetable, having a basic scale that is connected to the POS terminal will allow weighing this type of products at the till.
