Many retailers sell products that is grouped into Matrix. A Matrix is a way of grouping inventory items that share the same basic item information but differ in one or two item characteristics, example size, colour, pattern, etc. A Matrix is a rectangular array of elements (or entries) set out by rows and columns.

For example, a shoe store can have a line of shoe that comes in different colours and sizes. Rather than adding an item for each colour and size, you add one item and define it as a Matrix. Then you can specify its characteristics like in this case colour and size. When viewing your inventory or planning a purchase or issuing an invoice, it can be very helpful to view and work with a Matrix.

Preparing for the CeBIT


CeBIT 2007

I have started making preparations for this year’s edition of the CeBIT show, taking place from March 15—20 in Hanover, Germany.

My company will have a stand in Hall 1, right in the middle of all POS goodness, so I hope I can pick up some new point-of-sale gadgets and find some trends. I am not sure whether I will have the time and the internet access to update this blog live from the show, but will surely browse around and publish news.

Interstore communication



There are various reasons retailers around the world are now migrating to advanced POS systems. For the first time in history, relatively cheap, high bandwidth connections are available to virtually any store location. There also are simply more POS options — more advanced, and affordable hardware, easy-to-use software — that give retailers new capacity to track, speed up and advance store promotions and sales. So instead of antique DOS or mainframe relay systems running across slow dial-up or satellite connections, high-speed connections are allowing retailers to quickly ring up sales and keep customers moving through. Additionally, those high-speed pipes allow information to quickly travel between the POS systems at retail locations and company headquarters. This gives corporations nearly instantaneous feedback and insight into sales trends, and the ability to quickly react to changes in the retail environment.

Some of these advances stem from lessons learned through e-commerce operations. Developed over the past five to 10 years, e-commerce admittedly makes up a small proportion of retail sales, at just 5.5 percent. But for many mainstream retailers, the sheer mass of those sales can in fact equal that of up to 30 individual locations. Retailers realize that the efficiency gains and customer service operations gleaned through e-commerce improvements can have a massive and positive influence on how changes are made at retail locations. POS is at the heart of these changes.
