XpertMart Releases New Retail
Enterprise Management Software for Mac
April 11, 2008
NM - XpertMart announced today the release of a new version of its
Retail Enterprise Management software for Mac with an expanded suite of
features to help retailers optimize sales across multiple channels and
The new version of XpertMart's POS & Inventory Control software
allows users to run a chain of retail stores, manage wholesale accounts
as well as sell online. New features include the ability to setup
multiple price lists, customer discount groups, credit limits and
fulfill large orders from several different inventory locations.
"Retailers looking to grow their business have often had to resort to
non-Mac solutions because the available POS software didn't cover their
needs," says XpertMart CEO Steve Searfoss. "The new version of
XpertMart gives growing retailers the same kind of sophisticated tools
their larger competitors are using."
The new version includes an integrated Accounts Receivable module where
users can set credit limits for individual customers, apply payments to
specific invoices or the balance as a whole, add credits and charges,
generate Balance Statements and run Aging Reports.
Multiple price lists can be created in XpertMart so that different
stores, regions or store types can have their own price for the same
item. Customers can be assigned to special discount groups to
automatically receive discounts at the point of sale. These discounts
can be defined by department, line of merchandise or apply across the
board to all items.
"Even as more independent retailers have begun using Macs, larger
retail chains are predominantly still relying on other platforms like
Windows and Linux," says Searfoss. "We intend to change that by
offering a complete retail management system that runs on Mac."
XpertMart's new Corporate Sales Order module acts as a clearinghouse
for large orders of merchandise from the web or wholesale accounts.
Users can specify which stores and warehouses will be used to fulfill
the order and prioritize the locations from which the stock will be
pulled. A Purchase Order can be automatically generated for any
merchandise not available at any inventory location in the chain.
XpertMart also includes inventory optimization tools to set model
inventory levels for each SKU/store combination based on historic sales
trends. Using real data, users can set Min/Max parameters and have the
system automatically suggest transfer orders to move merchandise from
locations where it is not selling to locations where it is
understocked. XpertMart also generates Purchase Orders to automatically
replenish merchandise falling below its optimal inventory level.
"Retailers with private labels who manufacture or source their
merchandise directly will find the new version of XpertMart helps them
stay ahead of their demand," says Searfoss.
The new version of XpertMart also includes a new set of features to
more effectively manage web store orders including emailing a copy of
the invoice to a customer directly from the invoicing screen,
generating a packing slip which can be emailed to a remote warehouse
and specifying an insured amount for shipping different than the
XpertMart has its own integrated ecommerce application and also has a
standard order import format that can be used to plug in web stores
created by third party developers, particularly if they run on an SQL
database. XpertMart also has a real-time interface with the popular
Yahoo Stores ecommerce platform.
"We give our users tremendous flexibility to find the ecommerce
platform that works best for them while still using XpertMart as the
inventory back-end they've come to rely on," says Searfoss.
XpertMart runs on Leopard and runs natively on both PowerPC and Intel
