If I had employees I know I would need a POS, but I am a 1 person shop. I might look at POS systems at the WCAF, but I don't believe I need one. I price based on Materials (plus material OH) plus Time (includes shop OH plus profit margin). My 2 primary moulding suppliers provide me with an Excel spreadsheet of price changes, so it takes me approximately 30 seconds to update my prices in my Access Database. My database gives my all of my reports, sales tax info, etc. I don't use united inches except to figure minimum moulding length requirements. Also, I do allocate % costs for the 20+ solid Rag matboards I carry in inventory. Otherwise I include the total cost for the mat because I will probably never reuse. For Moulding I use actual costs, unless carried in my moulding inventory. As an example, customer wants 10 X 14 moulding, 1" width. Three different vendors pricing: Vendor A=$10.00/ft; Vendor B=$15.00/ ft; Vendor C (Roma)=$20.00 per foot. Vendor A: length only - 10 feet = $100.00 + $6.00 del = $106.00 Vendor B: Has Straight Cut option - 6 feet = $90.00 + $12.00 UPS del = $102.00 Vendor C: 1/2 stick option; 5 feet = $100.00 + $11.00 Fed-X Ground Del = $111.00 In this instance all 3 are approximately the came cost, but I can get the higher quality Roma frame for a small incremental cost; I explain the deal to the customer, as they get the savings too. (However, if the frame size was 12 by 14, the frame would be twice the price.) Can the existing POS systems price this way? thanks for your thoughts.
