Furniture World News on

GERS Retail Systems, a leading provider of enterprise software solutions for consumer-centric retailing, today announced that three of their new retail customers – Furniture Warehouse, H. D. Buttercup, and Seasonal Concepts – have implemented GERS’ Store Operations & POS solution to speed customer transactions. The easy-to-use solution is significantly reducing the retailers’ training time and costs, leveraging built-in workflow capability while enhancing add-on related sales. Furniture Warehouse, a Texas home furnishings retailer with same- or next-day delivery, has replaced their manual system with GERS Store Operations & POS, giving their employees a point-of-service solution that’s easy to learn and use. GERS’ POS solution provides immediate inventory lookup and reservation with faster checkout for their customers. Furniture Warehouse operates six stores in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area. “We selected GERS because of their people, solutions, and partnership mindset,” said Robert Garrett, COO of Furniture Warehouse. “They took the time to learn our business challenges and system requirements which made us feel comfortable to invest in the partnership. The GERS’ services team was great to work with. Their deep knowledge in retail and the GERS solutions enabled us to have a quick and successful go-live.” H.D. Buttercup operates an outlet for home furnishings manufacturers in Culver City, Calif. They have implemented GERS Store Operations & POS to help them more easily manage multiple vendor inventories. Seasonal Concepts operates 20 stores in the Midwest specializing in patio furniture and Christmas accessories. GERS Store Operations & POS is making it easier for them to manage their inventories. They have also implemented GERS Radio Frequency Warehousing for improved inventory control. All three retailers now have the ability to manage delayed delivery and customer pickups as well as cash-and-carry items with fully integrated merchandising and inventory management. GERS Store Operations & POS solutions deliver the full spectrum of store management options - from real-time, point-of-service solutions that process complex sales orders and connect customers, orders, and inventory to powerful POS transaction management applications designed to facilitate efficient, accurate checkout. Supporting all store-level activities, the solution enables timely sales and inventory decisions for faster turns, higher margins, and improved GMROI. “Retailers that implement solutions like GERS Store Operations & POS, see an immediate increase in customer satisfaction, higher productivity from their employees, and more repeat customers,” said Stewart M. Bloom, President and CEO of GERS Retail Systems. “We are delighted to be partnering with Furniture Warehouse, H.D.
