Checklist of Features for Candela Retail Point-of-Sale (POS) and Inventory Management

Explore Retail POS and Inventory Management Features that Enhance Efficiency in Your Retail Business

Centralized Retail Management

Having all sales and inventory data centralized helps making well-informed decisions. Sales and inventory information from various retail outlets and warehouses are accessible at the main office.

Product Variants

Businesses that require size and color variations in their products, such as apparel and footwear, can effortlessly generate variants for size, design, and color for a single product. Matrix-format reports for Goods Received Notes (GRN) and Purchase Orders (PO) can be generated and filtered based on a specific variant.

User Access Security Managemen

Users are grouped and granted rights in respect to their groups. Only authorized users can operate and view specific screens. All user actions that are logged and screen-specific actions are viewable by the administrator.

Barcode Enabled Software

Candela supports barcode readers and handheld scanners throughout the entire retail process, ensuring data integrity and minimizing manual errors. Manual data entry is also an option.

Barcode Designer

Candela offers a visual interface for designing barcodes, allowing users to select prices, data fonts, sizes, logos, and more. Users can choose the necessary data fields and adjust their placement for printing on barcodes.

Nested Barcodes

Multiple barcodes can be linked to a single master barcode, with each "slave" barcode representing different packaging and pricing. Invoices display both codes, and stock management is handled for the master barcode.

Multi-Currency Functionality

Candela's multi-currency feature enables retailers to expand their operations into various countries with different currencies. Prices in different currencies can be configured for each store, and currency-specific prices can be printed on barcodes.

Communication Module

Report schedules can be configured, with reports automatically emailed to system users based on the schedule. The system can also generate SMS messages for customers, suppliers, and various activities and transactions ensuring smooth communications.

Product Assembly Creation

Users can define product assemblies and their recipes or Bill of Materials (BOM). Assemblies can be automatically created based on sales quantities, allowing for accurate recording of raw material consumption. Users can also assemble or disassemble product assemblies.

Integration with Retail Hardware

Candela seamlessly integrates with various retail hardware components including printers, scanners, customer pole displays, cash drawers, and weighing scales. Selected hardware devices are integrated to ensure smooth retail operations. Barcode printers are connected for printing different barcode types, and invoices can be printed using retail POS printers or laser printers. Different tills can have unique hardware configurations.

Invoice Generation and Point of Sales

The POS interface is customizable to accommodate different business requirements. Invoices for sales, exchanges, and returns to customers can be generated, and multiple Point of Sale terminals can be used at any retail outlet.

Touch Screen Facility for POS

Candela offers touch screens that can be toggled on or off for each POS terminal. Numeric entries can be made through a touch keypad, and multiple item groups and products can be configured.

Override Login Feature

Candela provides an override login option for POS operations, allowing supervisors to perform authorized operations that cashiers are not permitted to. When the supervisor logs out, the previous login is automatically restored.

Tax Management & Reporting

The system includes comprehensive tax management functionality, recording input tax during purchases and output tax from sales. Tax can be configured for all transactions within a shop or for each product individually.

Discounts & Promotions Management

Candela features strong discount management, automatically applying discounts during invoice creation. Various types of discounts can be applied to selected or all products and to specific or all shops.

Supplier Management Module

An integrated vendor module enables users to manage vendors and their accounts, including provisions for direct purchases and consignment purchases. Vendor ledgers and supplier performance reporting are available.

Non-Payment & Offline POS Terminals

Candela includes non-payment terminals for generating bills or delivery chalans, which are automatically converted to invoices when scanned at payment counters. Re-scanning of bills can be blocked, and POS terminals can be configured as offline, operating independently from the server to ensure uninterrupted POS operations.

Employee Attendance Management

An attendance module, which can be managed via barcode or RFID, is available for shop employees in single-location and multi-location stores. Attendance data from all shops is centralized at the head office.

Customer and Supplier Ledgers

Candela allows maintenance of customer and supplier ledgers, updating supplier ledgers when stock is received on credit or returned, and maintaining ledgers for credit customers.

Physical Audits and Stock Takes

Candela facilitates stock take of individual “racks” or “cabinets”, allowing manual or barcode reader-assisted processes without requiring mandatory freezing of operations.

Manual & Automated Purchase Order Generation

The system supports manual or automated generation of purchase orders for suppliers, with the option to make purchase orders mandatory or optional.

Goods Receipt Note (GRN)

Multiple GRNs can be created against one PO if stock is received in parts, and barcodes for received stock can be printed directly. GRNs can also be loaded through text files or data collectors.

Comprehensive Reports for Business Analysis

Candela offers a variety of reports to analyze sales, stocks, and inventory movements, with flexible criteria for specific data viewing. Reports can be exported to Excel or CSV formats.
