Features of the ECS5 Media Suite
The ECS5 Media Suite POS software is a complete retail solution that manages the information that flows from the head office to the customer. This system combines all of the media your business uses for communication and integrates seamlessly into your existing infrastructure.
Our POS software systems guarantee consistency of messaging and accuracy of information delivered in a timely and efficient manner.
The following are the main features of our ECS5 retail POS system:
- Create labels, tags, and signage in one place: Within the ECS5 system, you can manage the creation of shelf tags, labels, promotional signage, and other similar labels and signs that reflect current pricing and promotions. When a price changes within the system, you can use the software to quickly design and print new tags and signage. Digital signage and electronic shelf-edge tags are updated automatically.
- Manage planograms: The ECS5 system integrates the planogram for your store which allows for efficient and accurate price tag printing. You can also design your planogram, manage inventory, and identify areas of your planogram with less sold items so you can attract more foot traffic to these areas.
- Automate printing of signage and labels: The technology within our retail software solutions can automatically print signage and tags for items in stock and suppress the production of signage and tags for items that are not in stock. This is an intuitive element of the system that takes care of itself.
- Manage digital media: The ECS5 system includes an integrated Media Manager that allows you to create digital signs and video content using various types of media including jpegs, image files, and videos. The design suite within the Media Manager makes it possible for you to create content quickly and easily and automatically distribute it to TV screens and digital signs within your store.
- Integrate other devices: The ECS5 system harnesses mobile technology that can be used on Android and iOS mobile operating systems. You or your employees can access the system from any device or computer, and you can also integrate devices like handheld scanners, printers, PCs, and kiosks into the system. Your staff no longer has to go to a central office location to access the system and do things like print signs and labels.
