ENFIELD, N.H., July 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Retail Control Systems (RCS), a leading point-of-sale solutions provider for retailers, is pleased to announce that Goodwill Industries of Chattanooga located in Chattanooga, TN has successfully automated 14 stores with its NCR Counterpoint complete retail management solution.
Prior to implementing RCS's NCR Counterpoint solution, Goodwill used electronic cash registers and credit card machines, managed cash drawer counting and deposits on Excel spreadsheets, and manually entered data into their accounting software. Looking to update their retail management process, RCS was recommended to the Goodwill Industries of Chattanooga by other stores that had implemented the same NCR Counterpoint solution successfully.
NCR Counterpoint provides the Goodwill Industries of Chattanooga 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. The custom enhancements developed by RCS have given Goodwill tools tailored specifically for their business such as a donation kiosk, donation roundup, color rotation, KPI tracking, and specialized reporting features that support Goodwill's mission of obtaining donations. Additionally, Goodwill hosts all of their stores through the RCS data center.
"The category management has been exceptional for managing inventory based on sales," states Tim Ward, director of information technology for Goodwill Industries of Chattanooga. "We believe we have increased productivity and saved time by at least 50 percent. RCS has been there for us every step of the way, providing an exceptional level of service. They are great leaders in their field and the guides that got us up and running, giving us the support to get the job done."
"We work with several Goodwill organizations with locations all over the country," states Darlene McQueen, sales and marketing manager for Retail Control Systems. "It has been a creative challenge to integrate a retail management solution that would flawlessly support the point-of-sale needs for Goodwill's unique retail landscape. We look forward to our continued partnership and the integration of NCR Counterpoint into other Goodwill locations."
