Your End of Year To-Do List
As we approach November, it’s time to dust off your end of year to-do lists. Here are 4 things to add.
- Prepare for your holiday sale: Make sure to use the On Sale function in Ascend to set your sale prices. Also check to see that you have enough gift cards on hand and that your staff knows how to use them.
- Get ready to count everything: Counting everything in your store is an expensive exercise. When you get to counting day, you want to make sure it’s a productive exercise too. Start planning and training now at our Inventory Training page. If you want hands on training, sign-up for Inventory Fantasy Camp.
- Set your 2013 budget: The budget feature in Ascend Analytics is an outstanding way to set targets for your staff and to keep you on pace to reach your goals. It’s very simple to use as well. Go to our Analytics Help Page for step-by-step instructions on creating a new financial budget.
- Inspect your hardware: Take a look at all of your PC’s, bar code scanners, receipt printers and label printers. Decide which ones are good for another year and which need to be replaced. If you’re not sure they’re up to spec, check out our approved hardware page.
