Download sales receipt images and obtain sales insights, with a brand new service from Sophatar for retailers using Star printers!
- Are you a retailer looking for an easy web-based sales receipt re-print solution?
- Or find out at which time of day, or day of the week you consistently generate more sales so you can plan employee shifts effectively?
- Or find out when your first and last sales of the day happen?
- And be able to do this from anywhere, not just while at your store, without extra software to install or change your POS?
Then we have THE solution for you!
Sophatar is improving the sales IQ of retail locations with a Sales Receipt Viewer and Analytics dashboard that is targeted to customers of Star Micronics.
No software to install. No need to change your point-of-sale software.
It is a web-based service with downloadable images of your sales receipts showing in a browser and downloadable for re-print or email.
The service also includes extracting the data from your sales receipt images and turning that into actionable information via an interactive graphical sales analytics tool so you can explore sales trends.
It only costs $20 USD per month after an initial free 3-month period. No credit card is required during the trial period. This extended-time trial period is only offered for a limited time, during the introduction of this brand new service.
What Do I Need for This to Work?
Most Star Micronics printer installations have the unique capability that they can upload receipt images from your printer to the Star Micronics Cloud Dashboard each time a receipt prints. Check with your Star sales rep to find out if your install can. Once your image is uploaded and you sign up for this service, your receipt images will automatically be parsed in the cloud, and both the receipt images and parsed data is made available to you via a web dashboard and an interactive sales exploration graphics tool.
Multi-Dimensional Sales Analytics in the Cloud
Explore your sales receipts to uncover trends and actionable insights in a variety of ways. Simply click on the interactive graph in the browser and select one or more dimensions to turn your sales data into insights. Graphs update automatically to filter and analyze your data:
- by calendar date range
- by day of week
- by time of day
- by payment method
- by employee
- by sales receipt total $
Furthermore, you can filter to only see those receipts with discounts applied, or detect duplicate receipts. Use this to uncover ‘sweat-hearting’ by employees (discounts given to friends) or print receipt fraud (multiple prints of same receipt given to different customers from a single transaction on the POS, mostly seen in environments with a limited number of SKUs, such as QSR).
As retail stores must compete in today’s world with e-commerce and online shopping, physical retailers are increasingly in need of more data and analytics. Sophatar’s partnership with Star Micronics means receipt data at the POS can deliver new insights for retailers to improve their marketing strategy to boost sales at key times.
Besides this receipt viewer and analytics tool, Sophatar also offers other services based on sales receipt data from Star printers, such as its POS-transaction driven digital signage.
