Supporting the retail and wholesale sector
The retail sector is still one of the most competitive business environments to operate in. The impact of the recession, online trading and the rapid growth of direct marketing have all played key roles in changing the industry’s landscape and providing new challenges.
Carpenter Box has acted as accountants and business advisers to retailers for many years and so we recognise the risks and opportunities facing the sector. We can help grow your business and your profits – which in turn enables you to keep offering a great service to your customers.
Whether your business is online, in store or a franchise, there are many new systems to help you run your shop efficiently. You can now run your shop with a laptop or tablet using apps such as Xero, Vend and Shopify. These apps connect together, coordinating both your online and offline sales, customer details and inventory items. We are a Xero platinum partner and can advise on the best online accounting software for your business and budget.
Our knowledge and experience will help you to run your electronic point of sale system through apps and software which can dramatically increase your efficiency and profits.
