A wordy headline would have said too much. Because there will be a few categories of dry cleaning practitioners or business owners already on the dry cleaning pos system, if not that, then moving in that direction. Those who have yet to give the system its due consideration, or even first-time readers here (those who are, of course, in the dry cleaning business or interested in taking up the entrepreneurial practice), actually do not have very far or long to go either.
Because it does not take long to set up the system. Further to that, it does not take long to become acquainted with the system either. The fact of the matter is that most productive people today are already using computer-based hardware and software in their everyday lives and work. And that is what the dry cleaning POS system entails. It is almost entirely managed from the desktop computer. The system’s software package has been systematically tailored to respond to the familiar processes within the typical dry-cleaning environment.
It is also going a long way towards creating better efficiencies for the dry-cleaning franchise owner. There is certainly better control of the financials. And all the timesheets are being kept regularly up to date. There are no chinks in the armor. There is little to no breakdown or downtime being experienced. Manual labor has often had a bad reputation. Casual, unskilled labor allowed tardiness and incompetence to creep in.
This is bracket creep in the dry cleaning sense. Laundry is completed and packaged on time. And laundry is being cleaned, washed and dried and dry cleaned properly. There is very little space for damaged goods in the enterprise. The POS system goes a long way in helping to alleviate the pressures of the dry cleaning environment.
