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.
Supply chain issues are still rampant, and industry experts from across the country expect it to continue next year. With the most recent lockdowns happening in the technology chip-producing area in China (that affects everything from cars and computers, all the way to phones and payment terminals), planning for the future isn’t something to put on the back burner; it’s mission-critical to any business. We are happy to help to consult and strategize with you for any expansions or future needs you may have, even if it’s several months out, you may need that much time to make sure it’s a success.
Our NCA (Non-Cash Adjustment) program for credit card processing continues to do wonders for our customers throughout the state. When paired with one of our new systems like EdgeServ POS (www.edgeservpos.com), it’s a flawless process that enables your business to reduce up to 99% of all your credit card fees. In most cases, Skurla’s can also offer you a new POS at little to ZERO cost! Customers who are on this program can take money that would normally go to cover their credit card processing and reinvest in their business, their employees, or take on other projects. What would you do with that savings? I’m sure you have some ideas, why not call us at 907-243-2683 and see how we can make them a reality?
