For those of you that were able to attend, wasn't the Rural Small Business Conference fantastic? The education was top notch, and we loved getting to visit with friends from across the state and meet new friends!
What is eWIC (from the State of Alaska):
"Our WIC program is moving from checks to an Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) card we're calling "eWIC." The new eWIC card looks like a debit card and has all of your family’s WIC benefits in one place."
- It's Fast
- Saves time at checkout!
- It's Flexible
- Buy as little or as much of your WIC food at a time!
- It's Simple
- No more paper checks!
Now with eWIC integrated right into the store's POS, it will be easier and more discreet for families to shop. No more separating WIC items at checkout and paying with a paper check.
Watch the video below to see how fast and easy it is to process WIC transactions with integrated eWIC.
At this year’s Rural Small Business Conference (February 11th-13th), we will be showing off our new Skurla’s Grocery Point of Sale system! In addition, we’ll also be demonstrating its built-in eWIC integration – a first for our systems and one of a few certified to work in the State of Alaska.We’ll have a demo system setup so you can see exactly how it works. Our software partner for our POS, Auto-Star, will also be in attendance to be able to answer any questions you may have on the software.
