For Museums and Attractions your retail operation is crucial. You’ll need to maximise sales at peak times, manage seasonal shifts and minimize markdowns. Futura’s powerful EPOS and inventory management solution puts you in control.

Futura is easy to learn and use with the emphasis on customer service and minimising queues. It gives you flexible product categories, hot key functionality and fast item search. The result is speedy transactions with plenty of support for non bar-coded items and ‘pocket-money’ purchases, from pencils to postcards.

You can have complete visibility and management control. With powerful sales and trend analysis you can monitor performance, improve buying decisions and trial new products with confidence.
