ASPOS ORDER MANAGEMENT
The backoffice process of ordering and (re)stocking is to a high degree decisive for the financial results of your business. ASPOS generates intelligent ordering suggestions, taking account of sales history, delivery frequency, customer orders, DC stocks and inter-branch inventory. Customer orders and web orders are fully integrated into your purchase orders, according to the setting of the ordering profile. Received goods are entered into the stock, preferably by means of the electronic packing sheets of suppliers. Automatic replenishment based on your shelf plan is also supported. ASPOS stock management is totally focused on the elimination of missed sales and the optimisation of turnover rates.
ASPOS PRODUCT INFORMATION MANAGEMENT
You manage all product data in one place for stores, DC, webshop, app and kiosk! The information is managed by means of an extensive product information card within ASPOS. As well as the scanning code, product group, supplier, price, size, color and description (among others) it includes illustrations, web texts and web buttons. Mutations are available directly and in realtime through all channels. In this way, ASPOS organises your item management efficiently and effectively. Item management is taken care of centrally for the formula, but local articles can also be created at store level. You can subscribe to the product data from any of your suppliers included in our JDS product database. Valk Solutions collects, checks and marshals the product data of more than 1.000 suppliers. Article data are made available electronically, without any manual intervention whatsoever.

ASPOS MOBILE APP
Consumers are constantly on the move and online. Smartphones are part of everyone’s standard equipment and are used intensively. That is why the ASPOS webshop automatically adjusts its user interface for smart phones. The mobile app has been optimized even further for mobile use. This opens up a wide range of possibilities for mobile interaction with your customers. You can distribute flyers by means of QR codes or put-up eye-catching posters in crowded locations such as bus stops or railway stations. Unique is that the QR reader is integrated into the app which opens directly in your webshop. Scanning codes immediately linked through to product information. Another application is that customers coming within a certain range of the store will receive a message about their order or a special offer.
Your omnichannel success is only complete with a fully integrated webshop. Consumers expect one experience, whether mobile, on the web or in-store. Therefore the ASPOS webshop is fully integrated with your store(s) on the ASPOS platform. Customers can order products in the webshop and collect them in-store, or order in the store and have the goods delivered to their home. The orders for stores and webshop are processed within one single logistic flow to safe costs and spare the environment. Reward points are valid for both the webshop and stores. Store stocks are visible in the webshop. Weborders arrive at the POS to pick and ship from store. The benefits and possibilities are countless. With ASPOS your webshop will generate traffic, turnover and improved margins in-store!
The ASPOS in-store kiosk is designed to avoid non-sales due to out of stock. Also, retailers can create a long tail digital shop window using the kiosk. On the kiosk customers can search for articles, request information, view videos and place orders. The kiosk is fully integrated with the POS. Together with other purchases a kiosk order is to be paid for at the cash register and then released for home delivery or collection in the store. The kiosk moves the long tail from the internet into your store. The virtual stock in the store can reach almost infinite proportions. The kiosk is an excellent in-store eye-catcher, enhancing the experience and fun of shopping. A fine example of clicks in bricks.
