Skurla's POS Solution's founder, Phyllis Skurla turns 90 July 5th!
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!
John Skurla turns 90 May 13th! So I am writing this blog to honor my dad and the legacy he created for me, the Skurla's family, and his family and network of friends and business associates.
All of us at Skurla's would like to wish you a very Happy New Year!
And speaking of new, we have lots of "new" going on around here!
What does wearing a Fitbit and working at Skurla's Point of Sale Solutions have in common?
To quote one of my dad’s favorite sayings - "there is nothing more permanent than change".
It was quite a month for many Alaskans - like surviving a major earthquake, just to name one thing.
We have had over 1,800 aftershocks as of yesterday, roads are being repaired, schools are still closed, but no one suffered serious injury - amazing.
At Skurla's, we also started the month with a "jolt" - literally. On November 19th, a truck careened into the front wall of our office. It destroyed the conference room wall, many of the contents, and part of Jeff's office. We are so grateful that this happened before we opened - the outcome could have been much different. See pictures below!
From TSYS and VISA:
Visa is introducing an authorization requirement for return (cardholder refund) transactions. Authorizing a return enables the card issuer to validate the cardholder account, decline potentially fraudulent cards, and minimize chargebacks if the account does not exist or is closed. The return authorization message is intended to improve the return process by enabling cardholders to view a credit/return on their online banking statement in real time, as well as support other issuer services such as text alerts, in order to improve the cardholder experience and minimize return inquiries.
