EPOS solution for independent retailers
What is Oscar?
Oscar is the perfect EPOS solution for independent retailers in the music/book industry looking for a reliable system yet one that can offer a wide range of functionality.
Oscar is designed to use industry-wide bibliographies. Information is king in modern business and nowhere more so than in retailing of books and music, where customers expect encyclopedic knowledge to be combined fast service and low prices. Most Epos systems are designed to provide better business efficiency by cost control, ensuring that all sales are accurately recorded, stock levels maintained and prices pre-set. Oscar provides all of these features by default, with yet much more functionality.
Oscar is unique in the world of retail automation because it is designed from the outset as a source, rather than a sink, for information. It is designed for information-rich environments where much more information flows to the user (catalogue information, product sales histories and so on) than that which flows from him or her (sales price, quantity and other trading data).
For the music industry, Oscar provides the Official UK Music Catalogue, which is automatically updated daily, and in the book trade it integrates bibliographies from Neilsen Bookdata, giving it access to literally millions of titles. Retailers in information-rich sectors like music and books can benefit from vast amounts of product information right at the point of sale, boosting customer orders and confidence and producing a widening expertise gap between independent retailers and mass market super-stores.
To summarize Oscar helps improve business performance, not just by controlling costs, but by expanding sales horizons by empowering staff with information at their fingertips. This truly is a revolution in retailing.
