Working Principle of RetaDesk
RetaDesk is an ERP software used for managing retail business in a smart and easiest way. The software is web based and multi user mode. The main admin or vendor, who is the owner of the business is capable of handling and controlling each and every activity going through the business. He has the ability to create new roles like salesman, manager, accountant etc. and set access permission to various features for them. The software follows a standard retail business workflow. First of all, vendor or user of the software should create the categories, brands and groups of the products they have or they may have in future. Then each product they have in their store should be created from the product setup menu. The user will be able to define if the product is Serial Product or not. After that the vendor will be able to purchase supply for the products. They will create supplier accounts first and then each supply or purchase should be created from the Purchase menu. When a purchase is done, the purchased products goes to the inventory and are ready for sale.
From the sales menu the salesman will be able to create new invoice. He needs to enter the customers mobile number. If the customer is not an existing customer then fields will appear to give customers information to create the customer account. Salesman will select products and their serials (if any) and add them to the invoice. The invoice is editable until the payment processing is done. Vendor will be able to keep a invoice as pending and will be able to edit it as much as the want until the payment processing and this will bring a huge benefit for them in practical. After all the products are added, the invoice will be created. The cash/accounts manager will get a notification that a new invoice is created. He will process the payment of the invoice. The payment processing is very important section of our software. Payment can be both cash or cashless. For each type of payment possibilities there will be options to process the payment and keep tracking of them. Vendors will be able to sell products on due. The due processing is one of the major features of our software which is currently not available in any other software in our country. The software will also have the option to return item both from the customer and to the supplier. Any items can be returned from supplier’s invoice or customer’s invoice. For sales return appropriate payment processing is also important and it is another important feature of our software as we will deal with due payment processing. The payment collection of dues can be processed from the collection menu. There will be a complete implementation of accountings on the whole process. Both customer’s an supplier’s ledger will be available. There will be a smart customer rating system for each transaction. Based on the customer’s rating the vendor will be able to know the nature of each individual customer and will be able to deal with then accordingly. Sometimes is necessary to take advanced payment from the customers and it is another interesting feature of our software. The advanced paid amount will be adjusted to the customer’s balance and invoiced amount during the payment processing. Cheque treatment will also be developed so that payment through cheque can be controlled using the software.
For the inventory there will be some smart reporting available so that vendors will be able to keep track of their stock and inventory in different ways. Any serial can be tracked from the software and a brief report will be showed. For larger scale business it is very important to track and control each and every items/product using barcodes. Our software will be completely barcode compatible. There will be a system available for generating and printing barcodes for each product.
