ENFIELD, N.H., July 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Retail Control Systems (RCS), a leading point-of-sale solutions provider for retailers, is pleased to announce that The Cupboard located in Fort Collins, CO has successfully automated its store with its NCR Counterpoint complete retail management solution.
Carey and Jim Hewitt are the co-owners and father and son team of The Cupboard, a kitchen specialty merchandise store. Prior to selecting Retail Control Systems to integrate their new point-of-sale (POS) system, Carey and Jim conducted extensive research to narrow their selection down to NCR Counterpoint. The Cupboard has been in business for 42 years and was operating a manual POS system before RCS helped them transition to a fully integrated, digital system that would meet all of their current and future needs.
NCR Counterpoint provides The Cupboard with an easy-to-use touchscreen interface, 2-second payment processing, loss prevention tools, advanced reporting, staffing solutions, and a suite of built-in marketing tools to help minimize shrinkage, ensure accurate and secure transactions, improve inventory management, and increase customer loyalty.
"NCR Counterpoint met all of our current and future needs in a point-of-sale system," states Jim Hewitt, co-owner of The Cupboard. "It is intuitive and allows us to expand into ecommerce and bridal registry, and enhance our customer connections. We chose RCS because of the advanced service they offer and their ability to provide local support."
"We are very pleased with the end result for The Cupboard," states Casey Albert, regional account manager for the RCS Colorado territory. "RCS was able to take them from a completely manual system to NCR Counterpoint, which provides them with an unmatched point-of-sale system that will enhance their business and ease of efficiency."
