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.

Our team at Skurla's wants to congratulate our friends at Mekong Market for the opening of their second location in Anchorage! This phenomenal market is located at the Bering Village in midtown Anchorage. This market will meet all your needs for Asian and Pacific Island specialty grocery items, but you cannot complete any grocery trip without grabbing a bite to eat from their hot bar. A personal go to for us.

Mekong Market needed a POS that could be multi-functional to handle retail, grocery, and hot bar purchases. Skurla's Grocery system powered by Auto-Star was the perfect fit. We were able to integrate credit card processing and EBT transactions to be an all in one transaction.  Our favorite POS systems are always modern, easily accessible, and cost effective for our customers, which is why we love Auto-Star. Mekong Market signed up for our PAS (Point of Sale as a Service) program. With one monthly fee they have an all- inclusive point of sale that comes with hardware, software, and in person support from our team at Skurla's. Utilizing PAS you will never have to stress over your point of sale, we are with you every step of the way. The Skurla's guarantee. Head over to Mekong Market to see our POS in action and try their delicious food!

Point of Sale As A Service!

Spring is Here - Are You Coming Out of Hibernation?

Apr 25, 2022 2:23:41 PM / by Thomas Greenman posted in Free Point of Sale System, Cash Discounting, NCA, No Credit Card Fees, Local Business, Local Support, Supply Chain, Busy Alaskan Summer

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 #nextgen of Skurla's is keeping with this tradition by bringing Phyllis her shamrock shake and visiting her at the retirement community where she lives.

Emergency Supply Kits - Be a Hero This Busy Season!

Apr 1, 2022 3:24:45 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:
