Paladin Simplifies Tax Holidays, Inventory Tracking
Paladin is all about streamlining retail and our upcoming release – 2021C – has features that will make keeping track of sales tax discounts much easier.
Tax holidays are becoming popular as states look to boost their economies by reducing tax rates for consumers. This year, Florida, for example, is offering Disaster Preparedness, Freedom Week (July 1-7) and Back to School tax holidays.
Paladin is now able to assist stores during tax holidays by calculating tax discounts. The Tax Holiday feature is an accessible from the quick access (right-click) menu during checkout. The cashier simply enters the tax-exempt amount for a line item and the sales tax is automatically adjusted. This feature also helps stores track tax holiday amounts via the Comparative Revenue Reports and Sales Tax Details Reports.
A new feature that enhances inventory tracking and improves customer checkout is an Insufficient Stock on Hand alert.
If customers ask to purchase a higher quantity of an item than a store has in stock, a message appears on the checkout terminal alerting the clerk that there is not enough stock on hand to complete the sale. This is especially handy when selling lumberyard or garden center items via barcode catalogs at the checkout counter when clerks can’t see what stock is on hand.
Another new Paladin feature makes it easier for stores to participate in Benjamin Moore’s Outside Sales Rep and Contractor and Commercial Pricing Programs. It gives stores the ability to track Benjamin Moore product sales and more easily send reports to the paint manufacturer.
The OSR report assigns credit to store staff that have been designated as Benjamin Moore onsite sales reps and provides tracking through Excel sheets. The CCP report comps stores for selling Benjamin Moore products.
These are just three examples of how Paladin’s latest release streamlines retail and helps stores run more efficiently.
