Furniture retailers wear lots of hats – from supply chain manager to merchandiser to designer to salesperson. Having a reliable, simple-to-use point-of-sale system can help. But with so many options and price points, selecting the right POS for your unique needs can be a challenge. That’s where Furniture Wizard can help.
As a Home Furnishings Association Solution Partner, the Furniture Wizard team understands retailers. In fact, many of their leaders were raised in family-run furniture businesses and, together, have more than 150 years of retail furniture experience.
“We know what retailers want in a POS – efficiency and effectiveness,” says President Teresa Fischbein. “Our software provides just that, and it’s simple to use.”
Furniture Wizard eliminates the time-consuming and often tedious tasks of daily store operations. From ordering to inventory to delivery and everything in between, this software helps you streamline every point along the sales journey. It makes everyday tasks like tagging the sales floor and resolving customer service issues hassle-free. And keeping track of special orders? Furniture Wizard’s special-order system is fast and flexible enough for retailers of any size.
New cloud-hosted solution
Now, the company has introduced a new cloud-hosted solution for users, providing access from anywhere. It eliminates the need for users to update and maintain their systems, while offering consistently excellent speed and performance. And the cloud-hosted solution provides additional security and redundancy for peace of mind. With the new option, Furniture Wizard’s customers can now choose to operate their POS in local, server-based or cloud-hosted operation.
“We’re offering our customers the versatility to take their point-of-sale systems to a whole new level,” says Evan Faller, director of operations.
One early adopter of the cloud solution was Berk’s Furniture and Mattress in Northern New Jersey.
“Going to the cloud-hosted solution has increased our processing speed tremendously, even with additional users,” says Justin Berkowitz, a partner at Berk’s. “And having the ability to easily access our information from anywhere has been great – especially during these last few months.”
QuickBooks integration and one-on-one training
While Furniture Wizard uses cutting-edge technology, it relies on simple, cost-effective hardware like wireless Bluetooth hand-held scanners and Dymo label printers. These have become powerful tools used daily by Furniture Wizard customers. And the software provides seamless integration with QuickBooks, one of the most popular accounting programs used by retailers.
Most retailers are up and running with the new software within two to six weeks. Included in each retailer’s contract is a one-on-one, interactive webinar training program. “We record every webinar and give it to the retailer so they can train new staff or provide refreshers to their team,” says Faller. “When our software goes live, we want to ensure that our retailers are confident in their decision.”
