Catapult POS for Specialty Foods
Catapult goes beyond omni-channel and it’s more than unified commerce. It is scalable and responsive thanks to Unified Transaction Logic™.
This means all critical areas of operation in your enterprise are connected in real time. Your checkout lanes, deli scale, café, e-commerce, and automated self-checkout terminals all work in unison. Your transaction touchpoints all work as one platform, on one platform. It is a comprehensive solution that enables efficient management of operations.
Fast, Accurate Transactions
A transaction made in your deli for a gourmet turkey sandwich will process no differently than a bottle of olive oil at a checkout lane, or a web order for one dozen gluten-free cookies.
All information from all of your stores synchronizes to your headquarters in real time (and vice versa). With Unified Transaction Logic, your discounts, dynamic promotions, rewards programs, and other transactional processes will work the same, across the board.
All transactional information synchronizes to the system for real-time, precise business analytics. Catapult has the power to process all transactions, across your enterprise, at every retail touchpoint.
Whether you’re running one location or one hundred locations, Catapult can cover all of it at a lightning-fast pace, no matter the customer volume, time of day, or method of transaction.
Customizable touch screens
With hot keys, cashiers are empowered and unnecessary steps are eliminated; they can speed through transactions and member management operations all from the point of sale.
Scale Integration to sell items by weight
Catapult features scale integration which is essential for specialty food stores. This means that through Catapult and our POS hardware solutions, you can fully integrate Catapult into your scanner-scales, deli, and prepared foods departments.
An associate can place fresh foods on a scale, weigh it, and print a barcode label with the weight, enabling stores to sell items by unit weight for each ring up.
Replenishment and Control
Catapult has full-spectrum inventory capability to synergize supply chains. It can replace your current inventory management software and cut down on complexity. Connect your inventory controls to the rest of your specialty store’s operations, seamlessly.
Catapult tools cover supplier integration, inventory management, auto-replenishment, warehousing, pricing & promotions, and new item management.
Perpetual Inventory & Replenishment
Perpetual inventory helps to avoid stock-out scenarios and keeps fresh food orders flowing at optimal pace. Order Assist™ module displays displays suggested item order quantities based on forecasted auto-replenishment calculations and can then generate a purchase order for each associated supplier.
Submit Purchase Orders Via EDI, Fax, Email, And More
Purchase orders are made easily through supplier integration and bi-directional communication via EDI (Electronic Data Interchange). Catapult will also submit inventory orders through other mediums allowing you to send one purchase order to an EDI supplier, then another via fax, and then another to email, all depending on your vendor’s capabilities.
On-Floor Inventory Adjustments & Label Printing
While you’re on the floor, you can easily print easy to read, high contrast shelf labels using a portable label printer. Now store associates can print shelf labels on-the-fly from anywhere in the store!
Universal Product Database
Use the Catapult-powered UPD to put our data in your catalog with lightning speed. The UPD includes valuable information like health attributes, brand, item image, size, receipt alias and suggested retail price.

Specialty food shops are thriving in an era where Millennial purchasing power is increasing. But, it’s a competitive culinary game. How can you ensure that your store stays ahead of the rest? A major component is being able to make critical decisions based on real, actionable data.

With over 300 pre-built reports established from best practices as well as customer requests, you will gain the insight you need to better run your business. Each report can be filtered by endless data dimensions.
