Retailers Can Reach More Local Shoppers by Showing them their Inventory Online
MEDICNE HAT, AB – Auto-Star Compusystems, Inc., a leading provider of point of sale and retail management solutions for retailers, today announced the launch of a new integration with Pointy from Google. Pointy from Google helps local stores to reach more customers by showing them what the store sells.
Auto-Star retailers can download Pointy from Google for free to their Star-Plus point of sale. Then when they scan their products, they are uploaded to an online catalog for their store and in turn are displayed on their Business Profile on Google. Their products also have a better chance of showing up in relevant product-related searches on Google.
In a global survey, 74% of in-store shoppers who searched online before going to the store to shop, said they searched for something in-store related such as the closest store near them, locations, in stock near them, hours, directions, wait times, and contact information.
Auto-Star’s Star-Plus software provides grocery, pharmacy and natural health retailers a flexible point of sale and back office solution with customized features including customer loyalty, inventory control, reporting, ecommerce and mobile delivery. By integrating Pointy with the Star-Plus point of sale, retailers can expand the reach of their business and connect with local shoppers.
“Pointy from Google is perfectly aligned with Auto-Star’s commitment to helping retailers grow through innovative customer-centric solutions,” said Josh Wintoniak, Sales Manager of Auto-Star. “By embedding the sign-up process in our application and eliminating the need for any specialized hardware, we make it easier than ever for retailers to get products online and more customers to their store.”
The Pointy from Google and Auto-Star Star-Plus integration will provide Auto-Star users a seamless opportunity to get their products online and to reach more local shoppers. To learn more about the Pointy and Star-Plus integration, please visit www.auto-star.com/pointy.
