|ECRS Releases Catapult v.5.2||| Print ||
The latest release of the point-of-sale software from ECRS includes over 25 new features. Among these is an e-coupon feature that allows stores to create special promotions that can be assigned to specific customers and set to activate automatically when the promotion requirements have been met.
Other new features are digital receipts, an in-aisle consumer price checker, and roundup for charity.
Customers can opt-in to receive digital receipts via email that are viewable on mobile devices within seconds of a purchase. This option is for stores looking for a "greener" method of doing business by reducing paper.
The in-aisle price checker lets customers scan items to receive real-time prices, including discounts. The ECRS price checker is compact and can be mounted anywhere with a standard VESA wall mount.
Roundup for charity allows customers to round up any transaction to the nearest dollar to donate the extra amount to a charitable cause. With Catapult 5.2 the cashier has no extra work or math to do - the system automatically does the rounding and distributes the funds.
"There has been much excitement generated over the release of Catapult 5.2, and we have received very positive feedback from customers," says Mark Noble, VP of development for the company.
