Why now is a great time to refresh your charity shop technology
Nobody knows what the new normal is going to look like but that doesn’t mean you can’t prepare for a successful future. Now is a great time for picking up those projects you’ve been thinking about for a while but never seem to have the time to do. With shops being closed, it’s the perfect opportunity to make changes and give your shops a fresh start. New charity shop technology like EPOS and Gift Aid solutions can help give your shops the boost they need for a successful reopening.
Here are some more reasons why now is a great time to refresh your shop technology:
Minimise disruption to trading
At Wil-U, we minimise any disruption to trading if you’re changing your EPOS solution but there’s always going to be some downtime. Changing systems before your shops reopen means that you can have a stress-free installation and staff can get used to the new system so they’re ready to go when you open.
Make the most of an influx in donations
It’s expected that charity shops will receive a huge amount of donated stock once you reopen. That means more potential Gift Aid donors! Maximise on these extra donations by improving your Gift Aid process and making it quick and easy for people to sign up through a Gift Aid Sign Up tablet. With Wil-U, you can start selling Gift Aided stock instantly!
Come back stronger
For a lot of shops, now is a great time for a deep clean, a lick of paint and a fresh start. It’s likely you’ve been putting off changing or updating your charity shop technology for a while – but with a drop in income, there’s no better time to set your shops up for success!
We know things are tricky right now and you might think it’s too risky investing in a new EPOS or Gift Aid solution. With Wil-U, there are no upfront or hidden costs, just a small monthly subscription fee that covers your hardware (including replacements), software, support and delivery.
With online demos, contact-free delivery and an easy self-install, we’re already making plans with charities of all sizes to install our efficient, affordable and innovative EPOS and Gift Aid solution into their shops. Join them in refreshing your shop technology and come back stronger than ever!
