The way consumers shop is changing and technology is altering the way retailers need to market to their customers. That’s why we’ve partnered with experts to create affordable, integrated business solutions that will help retailers compete with big box stores.
Driving customers into your store is the first hurdle, and enhancing their experience compared to the competition is next. The final step is to retain the customer so that they’ll return. The independent retailer is a symbol of the roots of Phillips. We promise to keep the independent pet channel live.
A good POS system allows you to run your business smoothly.
They track and record sales, manage inventory, place your orders, track promotions, store customer information, manage payroll and allow you to keep track of activity even if you are not at the store. According to the National Retail Federation, U.S. retailers lose $224 billion due to excess inventory and $45 billion from not having inventory in stock. Our partner POS system has been customized for a pet store’s needs. It also comes pre-populated with the Phillips catalog and pricing. Learn More
