How Artisan POS Improves Your Business


Increase Sales

Artisan can actually help you increase your sales…

  • Know more about what sells in your store and when to help you prevent sales loss.
  • Product & customer pop-up notes for upsell suggestions and special treatment.
  • Build Customer profiles with contact info such as phone and email. Quickly capture customer information by scanning a driver’s license (in most states) from our 2-D bar code scanner. Once you have a customer profile you can create targeted campaigns based on sales history, geography, and more to increase sales.
  • You can build even stronger customer relationships and entice customers with loyalty programs.
  • Create an Integrated Web Store using Zoey or Magento CE and excite your customers into either buying online or coming back to the store to check out what else is new.

Lower Costs

You can truly lower your operating expenses…

  • Accurately price and ring up items. Increase speed & accuracy with bar codes.
  • Enter Special Orders, Layaways, and other special sales accurately and efficiently. Save time ordering and tracking requested inventory.
  • Save time with Purchase Orders. With proper ordering techniques, go from loading dock to sales floor in record time.
  • Save time with customer service issues with information at your finger tips.
  • Accurately track purchase costs and keep up with inventory levels to help you buy smarter and prevent expensive overbuying mistakes and lower inventory investment.
  • Computer-printed price tags save time and are easier to read.
  • Issue (and track) store credit for returned merchandise instead of paying out cash.
  • Track inventory changes to help prevent and identify theft.
  • Faster physical inventory counting and utilization of existing hardware such as your cash register scanner which can save time and money.



Make your difficult tasks easier

  • Trouble-free consignment inventory with ready-to-mail Pay-Out Statements
  • Easy-to-use Layaways, Special Orders, one-of-a-kind items, and Store Credits
  • Option to use full-sheet or half-sheet custom receipts with your logo (or use a receipt printer)
  • We can help you create an Online Store with product info managed entirely in Artisan
  • Sales Rep Commission Reports
  • Save a tree & save yourself a lot of hassle:

No more hand-written sales slips! With today’s slick black flat-panel screens, you can maintain the elegant look of your store while using a computer (under the counter) or laptop to quickly & easily ring up sales.

Control and manage your business

Each transaction is recorded, deducted from inventory and noted on the customer account.This allows you to track sales by product and by customer.

You can track customers trends by product, sales by day and by hour and plan staff shifts with Sales By Hour report.


Reporting made easy

Dozens of built-in reports with numerous options let you analyze sales, inventory and customer activity. There’s even a built-in report writer for advanced users. Copy existing reports to get exactly what you want or hire CerTek to assist for a small fee. Additional reporting is available from QuickBooks, integrated with Artisan POS to collect Sales & inventory figures and Cost of Goods Sold data.

Manage and market to current customers

You can manage customer relationships because you’ll know what they bought, when they bought it and how much they paid. Your customer data can be easily exported to files for use with email programs and other loyalty services, or print mailing labels directly. 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.market_to_people


Track trends

Easily identify your best & worst selling items, set automatic reorder levels for stock items, and discontinue slow sellers.

Inventory control/merchandise tags:
Artisan can print small unobtrusive price tags—with or w/o bar codes—with removable adhesive to protect valuable artwork. You can also get just about any size label you desire with your logo, special fonts, custom layouts and more. We even have “string tag” & barbell jewelry tags. Some customizations are done as a service for a small fee.

Inventory control/merchandise tags

Print labels, jewelry tags, and cardboard hang tags with or without bar codes. Include almost any field or custom formula from the database including SKU, description, price(s), size, color & more. There’s a built-in label layout editor and custom layout services are available for a small fee.

Labels and tags print out on popular professional grade label printers from TSC, Cognitive, Zebra, and more. Alternatively print on sheets of labels.



Artisan works with your existing hardware

Supports receipt printers, electronic cash drawers, bar code readers, label & sheet printers, pole displays and weight scales. We support multiple terminals and simultaneous sales per terminal.
