Artisan has established long-term, successful relationships with the fine craft industry. Artisan POS Software is used by more of Niche Magazine’s Top Retailers of North American Craft than any other POS solution available today. We started exhibiting at the Buyers Market of American Craft (BMAC) in Feburary 2000, and now have hundreds of craft galleries and high-end gift shops using our software. 

Fine craft retail is in our blood. Our lead programmer and co-founder, Kurt Gollhardt, grew up in the business. His mother, Paula Leighton, jeweler and successful gallery owner for over 30 years, was, at one time, the President of the American Craft Retailers Association (ACRA, the predecessor to C.R.A.F.T.). Inspired by the business and its unique challenges, Kurt worked hard to tailor Artisan POS.

Artisan seamlessly controls and manages inventory, analyzes sales, and helps keep track of your customers. Timely reorders can maximize an opportunity. Timely markdowns can preserve profitability. Artisan has been created to meet your needs.

Whether your craft travels in fairs that change location or you have a stationary location featuring multiple artisans at different times throughout the year, you will find Artisan POS adapts seamlessly. 

From glassware and fine art to jewelry, apparel, and paper products, the artwork in your gallery can easily be inventoried while sales and shipping can be tailored to your client’s needs – whether it is a one-of-a-kind original or available in multiples. Reporting tools provide in-depth feedback on inventory fluctuations.

Spruce up the sales counter with sleek touchscreen computers. Add customer-facing displays with your store branding, custom messaging, and featured products. Artisan will also track which Sales Rep closed a sale. Commission rates are easy to create, and can be adjusted at any time. 

Increase Sales

Artisan helps you elevate your sales by letting you know more about what goes on in your store. This can keep you from running out of your best-selling items. Know what your customers like by measuring how fast different products sell.

Lower Costs

Avoid expensive mistakes by knowing what to buy and when to buy it. With FIFO enabled, you’ll sell your oldest inventory first. Save time and money around the store due to Artisan’s efficient speed and compatibility with various hardware.

Manage Your Customers

Have customer contact info on-hand and ready to export into email programs and other loyalty services. No other software program gives you as much power to pull out a simple or complex list of customers based on all kinds of important demographic criteria.

Reporting Made Easy

Chart your growth with in-depth reports. Easily import info into QuickBooks for employee time and sales breakdowns. Dozens of built-in Artisan reports with numerous options let you analyze sales, inventory, and customer activity. Custom report services are available for a small fee.
