Headquartered in both Sydney and Melbourne, Australia, SoleMate has specialized in developing and distributing point-of-sale software solutions for the retail fashion industry since 1991. The Windows-compatible version of this company’s self-named retail management software product has been available since 2003 and, through numerous upgrades and technological advances, has grown to become the number one choice of those in the Australian retail apparel and shoe market through the years, operating in hundreds of retail stores across the country.
SoleMate POS software is designed specifically to suit the needs of those in the fashion and footwear industries, from independent small businesses to large, multi-store retail chains. Ease of use is emphasized in this retail POS software package, and each user is assigned a unique ID number to allow SoleMate clients to identify what was sold and when by any employee for any time period. Additionally, SoleMate tracks employee sales and productivity, customer conversion rates and employee in and out times. Customer details can be captured at the time of sale, allowing retailers to build a customer database and view sales histories, as well as establish and keep track of customer loyalties programs and rewards. Store inventory functions, overall sales and refunds tracking and merchandise exchanges are all supported as well, and the system can handle a number of different kinds of payments, including EFTPOS, gift cards and vouchers. SoleMate offers instant access to over 80 types of reports and can be integrated with MYOB and QuickBooks. The company’s databases have the capacity to store more than 20 years of client data history.
