Spring is Here - Are You Coming Out of Hibernation?

When I’m talking with people from the lower 48, I often use a bear analogy to describe how Alaskan businesses depend on the summer. In spring, we gear up for a big summer, where we try to do as much business as we can; because in the winter times will be much leaner. It seems very similar to the bears we share the state with. At Skurla’s, we see this same cycle every year, and this year we’ve been busier than ever. Our new EdgeServ POS is doing amazingly well for us and our customers. More Alaskans have chosen us as their POS and payment processor provider this year than before the pandemic. Our solutions have enabled Alaskans to make it through the past two years, some customers have even told us they had their best years ever! So far, this year is shaping up to be bigger than others. But success doesn’t come without its challenges.

The Heart of Skurla's - Part 2

Jan 25, 2022 12:11:02 PM / by Thomas Greenman posted in Skurla's customers, Skurla's POS, core values, Mission

0 Comments

Last month we shared that every year around the holidays, the Skurla’s team meets for a day to review the previous year and set a course for “the ship” for the coming year.

 We like to refer to the business as a ship because at Skurla’s, we are an “all hands” type of company, meaning we are all pitching in, doing our part to make sure we are doing the right thing for our company and our customers. It’s an opportunity for the “crew” to be a part of the decision-making process and make sure everyone is “onboard” for the course we’re setting.

Here is Part 2 of the "Heart of Skurla's" -

Credit Card Fee Update - Winter 2021

Dec 2, 2021 3:09:21 PM / by Thomas Greenman posted in Free Point of Sale System, Free POS, Non-Cash Adjustment, Eliminate Credit Card Fees, Local Credit Card Company, No Credit Card Fees

Every year we attend industry educational events to keep Skurla’s current with technology trends and payments, but also to be able share that information on to our customers.  This year, we were able to attend major events, and one of the biggest topics was NCA (Non-Cash Adjustment).  For those that may not be familiar with this, it’s a program where merchants save up to 99% of their credit card processing expenses by passing along a small fee (3.99%) to their customers who pay with credit cards.  It also rewards their customers who pay in cash as they don’t have to pay this fee.   

Why has this been such a big deal?  The pandemic hasn’t been kind to many businesses to say the least.  Labor and inventory shortages, price increases, and cost of doing business have all been major factors that have forced business to look at their bottom line and some are barely getting by.  NCA is a solution that can have a serious positive impact.  The savings calculation is simple - look at the fees on your credit card statement and that’s money that you’ll likely save.  For a small merchant who pays $2,000 a month in fees, that’s a savings $24,000 a year!

Five Mysteries of Managing Inventory

The 5 Questions on Inventory 

(or why is it such mystery how to manage inventory effectively?)

 Hello Alaskans! Another winter is coming, and we’ve had another year of pandemic under our belts.  For those in the retail and grocery realm, maybe you’ve had a chance to regroup and strategize about what you can do to do improve.  I suspect that the word “inventory” has come up a lot - if so you’re not alone.  Retailers across the board have had inventory issues since 2020, and while it’s gotten better in some ways, but it continues to be an issue.
