Providing More Value

The other day, someone asked me about our labor rates.  If I were to try to give you our rates right off the top of my head, it’d be a vague recollection of a rate from a few years ago.  Why?  Most of our customers are on PaaS (Point of Sale as a Service) agreements, where service is included for most issues. It’s a rare occasion that they get billed.

How Much $ Can Surcharging/NCA Save You? Funny You Should Ask…

May 14, 2021 3:29:11 PM / by Thomas Greenman posted in Surcharging, EdgeServ POS, Non-Cash Adjustment

0 Comments

Finding ways to save money in your business can be a real challenge.

One of the methods Skurla’s has in it’s toolbox is surcharging or non-cash adjustment (NCA for short). It is a simple way of passing on (or sharing) the costs of credit card processing to customers  who don’t want to pay cash. Our point of sale system can automatically add a fee of  up to 3.99% to all card based transactions. The end result is that a majority of your credit card fees are eliminated or drastically reduced.

Well then, you ask, how much can surcharging/NCA save me?

The answer: Take your current monthly credit card fees - multiply that by 12. That’s your yearly savings! 🤣

But seriously, while NCA can’t always remove ALL of your fees, it can reduce the majority of them.  Even more if you are a business that doesn’t take tips. Couple that with a free or heavily subsidized, feature rich POS, and you may just be laughing all the way to bank.

Auto-Star and Skurla’s POS Offer Integrated eWIC Solution for Retailers

Sep 30, 2020 9:56:55 AM / by Thomas Greenman posted in eWIC, State of Alaska eWIC, Independent Grocer

0 Comments

MEDICINE HAT, AB and ANCHORAGE, AK – Auto-Star Compusystems Inc., an innovative developer of grocery software, and Skurla’s POS Solutions, Alaska’s premier POS and IT solution provider, are excited to announce an integration with the Star-Plus point of sale and Alaska eWIC program. 

The solution provides retailers an efficient method of accepting eWIC cards, while offering WIC participants a number of benefits including:

  • A quick and convenient checkout experience
  • Increased privacy and security
  • Improved customer service
  • Fewer errors and loss due to unsigned or expired checks
  • The ability to purchase items over multiple visits

 The Alaska eWIC card looks like a debit card and can be used to purchase WIC approved foods. With eWIC integrated directly into the retailers point of sale, the system will automatically check the balance on the customer's card and verify that the purchases are WIC eligible.

The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) provides federal grants to states for supplemental foods, health care referrals and nutrition education for low-income pregnant, breastfeeding, and non-breastfeeding postpartum women, infants, and children up to age five. The USDA requires that all states implement electronic benefit transfer (EBT) for WIC program benefits by October 1st, 2020. For more information on the Alaska eWIC program, please visit http://dhss.alaska.gov/dpa/Pages/nutri/wic/eWIC.aspx.
