I just returned from the RSPA (Retail Solutions Providers Association) annual conference – RetailNOW in Orlando.
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.
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!

With so much attention focused on potential POS solutions, do you also research the best place to buy your POS system?
There are a number of reasons why working with a POS dealer is smart and strategic. Consider these three.
