eBOSS Customer-Information Management

eBOSS Transfer Management
eBOSS automatically informs all stores of distributions and/or transfers from a central location as part of each day's polling process. By comparing "days of supply" for items in several stores, eBOSS can recommend those transfers that will optimize sales.

eBOSS Sales-Reporting Management
Managing sales reporting has never been easier. eBOSS gives you the flexibility to report sales by employee, register, department, time of day, merchandise SKU, or Category. Sales Team commissions can be automatically computed based on selected SKUs sales volume or a user- customized formula.
