How EPoS Can Help You Reduce Your Surplus Stock

As a retailer do you find using promotions to be over complicated? Well it doesn’t have to be.  With the right EPoS software, promotions can be easy to manage. By setting up promotions retailers can dispose of surplus stock at pre-determined times of the year that would usually not sell through.

Holding large volumes of stock that aren’t selling can incur greater costs such as storage fees – storage facilities require workers to categorise, organise and transport items from one place to another. Furthermore, high levels of inventory can lead to higher insurance costs. Additionally retailers can be left with large quantities of stock that are no longer desired by consumers if items become obsolete or customer demands begin to shift.
