LPA Retail System’s proprietary Easy Buy software (available to all LPA clients) significantly reduces the time and complexity of buying from vendors. Clients say it saves each of their buyers 2-3 hours per week. One LPA Retail client said he “couldn’t run his business without it”.
The Easy Buy enhancement provides each buyer with their own Easy Buy spreadsheet view. The buyer loads their view with the items they want to purchase. Filtering to one vendor and one location is the default; however the buyer has the option of loading multiple vendors and multiple locations.
The power of Easy Buy is its ability to present, on one screen, specific sales and inventory data that you determine is important to your buy decision. For example, when buying beer, only data that is relevant to a beer purchase is displayed. It defaults to cases and tracks and calculates the true cost on vendor specials. A period of supply recommendation is calculated and the whole process culminates in a purchase order. Like all of LPA Retail System’s POS customizations, Easy Buy is a big time and money saver.
