Consistent Time Tracking 

Over fifty-years ago, Day-Timers invented a system to manage your time and stay organized. One important element of their methods is consistency; their customers choose the planning pages that will work for them, and usually re-order the same one year after year. Using a computerized cash register has helped Day-Timers be sure they are providing the same customer with the same planner. Cash Register Express keeps track of what each customer purchases, which can be easily recalled when the customer returns to your store. According to store manager Janet Zambo, "We are glad for the customer profiles that we have set up for each customer. This enables us to keep track of what the customers purchase for future reference. CRE shows us what the person selected the last time they were here, and we can make sure to find them the same if they request it."

Accurate Inventory 

As with any store, the Day-Timers outlet runs sales on their products. Cash Register Express provides dozens of different sale options that can be pre-set, so no manual intervention is necessary by the cashier at the point of sale. Janet notes that, "With our old system, running a sale wasn't very easy. We had to create a second item that sold at the sale price, and rely on the cashiers to ring up the sale item instead of the original. CRE makes it much easier, allowing us to set up sale prices that automatically turn on and off within a date range. In CRE, The inventory listing is very creative and we have been able to change pricing and promotions without creating a new product number. This helps to eliminate duplication of inventory and mislabeling." To ensure accuracy at check-out, Day-Timers prints their labels from Bar Code Express.

We use the software program daily and when we have a concern, having the computer down is not an option. It is refreshing to be able to call and get the help needed at the time of the problem." The world is fast changing, and as new challenges arise in the economy, retailers are devising new ways to keep customers interested in shopping in their stores. Cash Register Express is constantly being updated to provide new features that automate these ideas. "When we have called for support on new features, they have been very patient and walked us through every step to ensure that we were doing things correctly."
