It is the last day of summer – 5 things you can still do before the end of the year and make sure that you are stronger going into 2019. Now is the time to adjust, adapt and refocus to ensure you are able to meet your goals and objectives.
1) Focus on the Holidays:
Gift cards are an easy way to help develop loyalty. We offer customized gift cards and can support transitioning from your current supply (if you have any and need to re-order). If you currently process your cards on a stand-alone terminal, you can save money by combining both your merchant services and your gift cards onto the TransAct platform. If you sold through your cards this summer during a Christmas in July, or advanced Cyber Monday sale, now is the time to update your program, order new cards and integrate to one, easy to manage system
2) New Ways of Collecting Revenues:
Using your current hardware, or upgrading to a Chip EMV card reader, you can leverage the additional benefits of working with TransAct. Easily add an online payment portal that allows you to e-mail an invoice and accept payments 24/7 reducing time to collect fees due. You can also include your secure payment link to your quotes for services, allowing a client to put down a deposit, schedule a recurring automatic payment plan or easily pay their invoice when they are ready.
3) Integrate Inventory Management into your POS:
It is becoming more important to have inventory on hand when needed and be able to track your carrying costs, in-stock levels and cost of goods. The latest POS systems have fully integrated inventory that allows you to manage carrying costs and reduce having too much in-stock of the wrong items. Know in an instant how much you have invested in your business and keep it all in balance.
4) Integrate directly with QuickBooks Desktop or QuickBooks Online:
It is easily done and we can help you set this up. Learn more here (or e-mail us to set up a time to review how we can make it work for your business.)
5) Change from a stand alone Credit Card terminal to a POS:
Plan now for the changes, it isn’t complicated and we make it even easier with being on hand to support you and train your staff on everything you need to know.
Whether you want to take advantage of all of these things or just consider doing one of them, we are here to assist you as you transition into your 2019 plans. Schedule a 20-minute one on one free consultation by the end of September and we can help make sure that you have everything in place to end the 2018 year strong.
