|Shoper 9 is designed to manage large volumes of your retail business data. To achieve this, Shoper 9 uses different types of masters/catalogues and appropriate business regulations. Catalogues are defined to store all your reference data.
The catalogues hold all types of your business’ master information. This could include details of products, supply chain network, stores, configurations and data communication schedules. For example, in Shoper 9 POS, you can create master information on item discounts/schemes that you offer, tax details applicable in billing, currencies acceptable at your stores, your vendor and customer details, sales persons working in your stores, etc.
In the case of Shoper 9 HO, you can create and store master information on your retail stores. This could be data on vendors, showrooms, distributors, etc. and their geographical classifications. As in POS, you can catalogue the various sales promotion schemes and discounting rules that your stores will apply uniformly across your business. Similarly, you can catalogue the tax details to be applied and the currencies/legal tenders that are acceptable in the stores. Your HO can then transfer the catalogued information to be applied across the chain of stores. You can define the nature of transaction that each store should carry out with respect to other units (Vendor/Warehouse/Factory/Distributor) of your business. All configurations that your stores adopt are defined by the HO. Other data that you can catalogue and send to your stores include import of data from other applications, the modes of data communication between HO and stores, defining schedules for data synchronisation and defining the parameters for mapping, so as to post transactions to Tally.ERP 9.
