NEW YORK, Sept. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — ShopKeep®POS, the simplest way to make smarter business decisions, today launched a new iPhoneApp to give merchants real-time access to store data so they can make critical business decisions on-the-go. With the new ShopKeep POS Dashboard App, merchants can view real-time sales for each iPad POS (Point-of-Sale) register and a summary report of previous day sales and other key metrics, with a tap or a swipe of a finger, anywhere, anytime.

“Each and every platform update we offer is directly tied to customer feedback,” said CEO and Founder of ShopKeep POS, Jason Richelson. “Keeping consistently up-to-date on store sales is critical to understanding business successes and disappointments. ShopKeep POS is the only iPad POS system that offers merchants the ability to manage their store from an iPhone or Android phone.”

In addition to sales data, the ShopKeep POS Dashboard app gives business owners the ability to:

  • Remotely track and monitor returns in real-time for more control of business performance.
  • See the cost of goods sold and gross margins to track daily store earnings.
  • Single sign on process for merchants with multiple stores, so that they can see real-time stats for all locations on a single screen.

This is important to merchants like Ike Escava, co-owner of The Bean, a popular three-store coffee shop chain in the East Village in NYC. “I love it!” Escava said. “ShopKeep POS keeps raising the bar for point-of-sale reporting. I can now see real time metrics on all three of my stores in one app with one click.”

Embraced by thousands of merchants across the country, ShopKeep POS is an easy-to-use and flexible point-of-sale solution that helps brick and mortar retailers manage inventory and customers, and make transactions, all from an iPad. The subscription-based service includes unlimited seven day a week customer care by phone, email and online chat so its customers are never in the dark and always able to get the help they need when they need it.

The new Dashboard App complements the easy-to-use iPad register and robust suite of inventory management and reporting tools that ShopKeep POS already offers to more than 3,000 merchants across the country.
