What is BeingIT®’s involvement?
Platinum Solutions has been a client of BeingIT® for many years and has a multitude of technology products and services. One of these products include a Point Of Sale (POS) system which is used to capture daily sales for restaurants, petrol stations and various other businesses. Platinum Solutions approached BeingIT® to create a cloud solution that would allow their clients to view various reports based on the POS system data, specially useful for franchises and branches managing multiple stores in different locations.
BeingIT® created a web portal where the POS information is channelled, along with a service agent application running on-site, that collects and pushes data to the cloud platform.
Platinum Cloud is a web application that had the initial goal to only compile sales reports and has expanded to a large variety of workflow and managing methods. It also allows for inventory management, customer loyalty programs, access rights, and automated connection alerts via email.
The Platinum Cloud product includes a dashboard that supplies the user with a break-down of sales, net sales, total costs, gross profit percentages, voids and more. It has features that allow the user to view the top 5 products or departments, view a detailed sales analysis based on products, department returns, and margins over specific weeks. A key feature is its ability to manage franchise databases - define new franchises, deactivate/retire branches - all the way down to reports for the specific branch.
