Planes, trains, and automobiles.  That is how Skurla's POS Solutions has been rolling this busy summer season!  Living and working in Alaska comes with challenges and beautiful opportunities.

Being a local Alaskan point of sale reseller means going to customer sites any way you can get there - planes, trains, automobiles, boats, and ATVs (and we are NOT kidding).  Whether it's driving to Denali, Kenai or Seward; flying a plane to Nunivak Island or Fairbanks; or taking the train to Denali and Talkeetna, Skurla's team goes where needed.

Emergency Supply Kits - Be a Hero This Busy Season!

Apr 1, 2022 3:20:36 PM / by Lynn Skurla Perkins posted in Paper Rolls, Supplies, Emergency Supplies

It's the weekend - your store or restaurant is packed.  Things are humming along nicely and you're thinking - we are busy, life is good!

Then you get the call - we are out of receipt paper at the register - can you bring us a roll?

You look, you panic - oh man - you forgot to reorder last week after they used that last roll!!!!

But you, being a smart manager/owner - know that you have that emergency supply kit tucked away for times just like these!  Viola!  Crack open the kit, and all is good.

Ok, but for those of you that don't have that emergency supply kit, well.....

So here is our advice.  First of all, make your point of sale supply stock is something you inventory and check stock of on a regular basis.  If you purchase your supplies from us, we can even get you accurate sales history of how much you go through on a regular basis.  Preorder for a couple of months or even a season and take advantage of our quantity discounts!

But the unexpected can still happen.  So, for that reason, we suggest you create an emergency point of sale supply kit that only you or your managers know about and have access to.  Make this a part of your disaster plan!

Here are some suggestions of what to keep in that kit:

You Need to Use This in Your Business - Now!

Feb 2, 2022 11:52:06 AM / by Lynn Skurla Perkins posted in Local Point of Sale, QR Code for Menus, QR Codes, QR Codes for Payment, Industry Experts

QR Codes - Yes, you need to start using QR codes for your business, if you haven't already.  

 What is a QR code exactly?  Well, QR stands for Quick Response.  And quick response is what consumers expect these days.  No one wants to type in a link to a website anymore - that is just too much work and they will probably not go to that effort.

But if you provide a QR code  - consumers are way more likely to snap the code and go directly to the site where you want them to order, read a menu, learn more about a product or event, redeem a coupon, or make a payment, etc.

And as we will show you below - QR codes are super easy to create!
