Our most popular add-on by far is RMS Data Import Tool. This add-on is used to import items and purchase orders, allowing you to import lists of items to create RMS purchase orders for subsequent receiving. Items are updated based on item lookup codes, UPCs, or supplier numbers. Items are duplicate checked based on item lookup codes and alias (with optional actions to take) and new items are created when they do not already exist in the database. Even more, you can link the same items with multiple suppliers using the item’s supplier tab, and update any specific RMS fields for the same item with the same supplier.

It’s no wonder why this add-on is our most popular, with such attractive features allowing retailers to import valuable data, keep up with suppliers, and make data transitions easy.

A snapshot of the Add-on



We think this NSSF article is quite helpful for the Firearms industry, providing tips to generate additional traffic flow throughout the year.

Here’s a tidbit from the article:

Every business experiences slumps and slow times related to the calendar, season and weather, as well as the busy lifestyles of today’s consumers.

Your shooting range is no exception.

If you have an outdoor range, you know the challenge. Cold weather often keeps shooters indoors or at home, waiting for spring to get outside for some target practice or recreational shooting. Likewise, summer heat can scare shooters indoors or persuade them to wait for cooler autumn days.

Indoor ranges experience parallel problems. When beautiful weather beckons in spring and fall, it’s very inviting for shooters to do their thing outdoors. If you are located in a northern state with long or bad winters, summer shooting traffic can be an issue too. People prefer to be outdoors because they’re cooped up for so much of the year.

Bottom line: No matter the time of year, what you are (indoor, outdoor or both), or where your range is located geographically, you can always use more customers filling lanes, buying products and providing revenue. The path to that result involves developing promotions that create excitement and value, and give shooters good reasons to come to your range.

Here are 11 promotional concepts to attract more shooters to your range at traditionally slow times and to leverage holidays and life events to generate additional traffic flow.
