The North American Retail Hardware Association (NRHA) is always scouting new ways to help retailers boost sales and streamline operations. Our latest business services partner Pointy presents retailers an easy way to strengthen their online presence with every transaction they complete.
Pointy helps retailers drive online traffic directly to their brick-and-mortar stores. By connecting to your barcode scanner and POS system, each item you sell or scan is filtered through the Pointy system and appears online, giving you the power to promote your in-store products online.
The Pointy technology integrates with Google’s “See What’s in Store” feature, which gives shoppers an additional way to discover what your store sells directly on Google search results pages. The Pointy software gives retailers real-time analytics to see how your products are doing online, allowing you to compare online searches to in-store visits, a powerful metric that can help your future marketing efforts.
NRHA is offering independent home improvement retailers a special rate for the Pointy system: a one-time-only fee of $399 (regularly $699). There are no recurring charges, with one payment, your store can connect your products to online opportunities transaction by transaction.
Pointy offers setup support and troubleshooting for as long as you use the system. It also offers a 100% refund if you’re not totally satisfied in the first 90 days.
