Spring is in the air!
For those of us here in the Northern Hemisphere, the weather is warming up, the leaves are growing again, and people are heading back out and about. And hopefully, out to your storefront!
The question is, are you ready for them?
Spring is a great time of year to start implementing some changes and cleaning up your operations. And while you may have lots planned for the upcoming summer season, it’s always good to take a close look at the vital aspects of your business like your technology first.
So while you prepare your store for the new summer season, here are a few ways you can “spring clean” your store’s technology.
Clean Up Your CRM
We’ve talked a few times about the importance of a CRM on the blog before, but just as a quick reminder–the Customer Relationship Manager is critical in helping you grow your business and stay in touch with your customers!
Do you have a clean list of the clients in your CRM? Or, are your client lists strewn about across different cash registers and platforms?
Make sure your CRM is in order this spring by either organizing your system manually or migrating over to a commerce solution that’s designed to keep up with everything you need on the CRM side of your business!
Clean Up Your Online Sales
Even if you have a brick-and-mortar business, if you don’t have online sales and eCommerce set up, you’re going to fall behind.
Online sales need to be seamless, fast, and efficient for the customer–who tends to interact with your company in different ways. So, even if you have an online storefront, you need to make sure you aren’t taking in orders for products that aren’t on your shelves!
Our advice? Make sure your eCommerce platform is connected to your point of sale in the store, or use a Franpos solution to never worry about cross-platform synchronization again.
Clean Up Your Technology Stack
Finally, just like with streaming services back at home, too many vendors and services usually mean an endless number of monthly fees to worry about.
That’s called your technology stack–and it adds up when you outsource multiple aspects of your business that may have otherwise been filled by one seamless platform.
So instead of using different software to manage your eCommerce platform, Growth Marketing efforts, point of sale platform, and more, why not use one platform that can combine all of those into one low monthly payment to run your business?
Enter Franpos. We manage all aspects of your commerce needs right from one unified platform.
So, spend a little bit of time cleaning up your in-store technology, and if you’re ready to take your business to the next level, schedule your free demo today to see why thousands of businesses rely on Franpos to help them grow!
