Press Release: Microsoft Dynamics Firearms Retail Software Now Released for Microsoft Dynamics AX

System Solutions Releases Electronic Bound Book and Electronic Form 4473 for Microsoft AX

GLASTONBURY, Conn., Oct. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — System Solutions has released the Microsoft Dynamics AX version of Firearms Bound Book and Electronic Form 4473. This popular software replaces the manual Firearms Bound Book system, and provides electronic processing of Form 4473 and FBI NICS. Microsoft Dynamics AX tracks serialized firearms and general inventory from receipt through sales, holds, layaways, returns and more. The integration provides an easy solution for selling and trading firearms and ammunition in the store front, and managing inventory in the back.

Microsoft Dynamics AX’s Firearms integration includes electronic Firearms Bound Book and electronic Form 4473. Microsoft Dynamics AX is an end to end retail system with many more features and benefits than proprietary systems, including point of sale, procurement, service management, accounting, inventory management, mobility, and omni-channel retail. The Firearms integration allows firearms dealers, sporting goods dealers and other niche retail stores selling firearms and ammunition to process electronic: ATF Form 4473, FBI NICS background check and other forms and transactions within the Microsoft Dynamics AX point of sale. “This integration makes the fastest, lowest cost, and complete enterprise management solution to sell and trade firearms and ammunition through point of sale while staying ATF compliant,” says Dave Durrenberger of System Solutions, a Microsoft Dynamics Certified Partner.

ATF Compliance
With Microsoft Dynamics AX, dealers can create purchase orders and process ATF compliant receiving, trades, layaways, sales and returns simultaneously with other items in the store, all while managing customers and inventory. A retailer can stay ATF compliant while maintaining seamless, time saving inventory and check out processes and create a great customer experience.

Long Term Benefits
Microsoft is the leader in PC, server, and business software worldwide. Single and multi-store sporting goods, firearms, niche retail, service, and rental stores can purchase Microsoft Dynamics AX POS technology backed by an ecosystem of Microsoft trained retail professionals in every state. “With proprietary point of sale systems, retailers really have limited or no choices when it comes to available features or support options. These companies just don’t have the depth of retail knowledge, money and resources of Microsoft and it’s ecosystem of retail partners,” says Dave Durrenberger of System Solutions.

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.
