Challenge

1. Purchasing and cashing are handwritten. This delays the purchasing process and in turn discourages customers reducing sales. This causes a financial loss for local artists and crafters. 2.There is no point of sale system. In order to manage stock the Centre has to close for 3-4 days which takes business away from local artists and crafters. Hence stocktake is done once a year which increases the risk of loss of stock. This again creates a financial loss for local artists and crafters

Solution

To solve the loss of sales the Centre needs an electronic sales and point of sales system. POS system is a combination of software and hardware that allows merchants to take transactions and simplify key day-to-day business operations. A professional, more efficient system will increase income generation for local artists and crafters.

Long-Term Impact

With the help of the POS system, staff will be able to focus most of their energy on trade shows, exhibitions and new innovative ways of showcasing African Art. The system will also speed up customer checkout, easily track inventory, view detailed POS reports, reduce stock loss and increase profitability. This attract more customers to the Centre and ensure increase economic benefit to artists and crafters.
