Easy to Use Point of Sale
Ordinary cash registers just hold cash. ARBAPRO goes far, far beyond that simple function. Our cash registers keep your volunteers and cashiers happy, and your customers even happier. You'll be able to swipe or scan employee badges to make payroll deductions a breeze so that you can keep employees coming back and spending more. ARBAPRO fundraiser software offers complete control over as many different payroll functions as you wish, so you can process more transactions at lobby sales, fundraisers, or coffee bars. You'll even get a handle on customer buying preferences, so you'll be able to tailor your merchandise mix to ensure repeat business - and countless pricing options mean that you can be as creative as you want with your merchandise pricing.
You'll get a daily sales profitability report so you can maintain the balance between traffic generation and profit. And ARBAPRO will ensure that price adjustments and discounts are only given as intended - these are controlled by cashier access and reported daily. It all adds up to a system that does more so you can earn more.
Save Time – Yours, Your Customers’ and Your Staff’s
ARBAPRO also helps you save time on everyday record-keeping and paperwork so you can spend more time on the big picture decisions that really make a difference. You'll find your entire inventory, ordering and receiving process fully automated - no small feat considering it can take managers working by hand up to 10 hours per week to do the same thing ARBAPRO does in minutes. Save hours on the day as you make global and cost changes, put ranges of merchandise on sale globally. What's more, our optional payroll deduction feature means you'll no longer have to spend time handwriting payroll charge slips or calculating payroll payments by hand. ARBAPRO can handle everything from importing employee files to badge scanning, signature receipt printing and automatic payment calculation. You'll be able to instantly generate printed deduction reports, or create a data file for even faster delivery to your payroll department.
As you save time, so will your volunteers and customers. A simple, clear register screen combined with single key entry makes training easy, and day-to-day operations smooth and quick. Optional credit card authorization, check verification, and payroll deductions all enhance customer operations and flow.
Streamline Store Management
The ARBAPRO system includes a manager's office workstation that allows you to run the store from behind the scenes, using a toolbox of reports and utilities that give you the information you need to make the decisions that matter most. ARBAPRO does what you need - like automatically preparing your candy orders and making order recommendations based on automatic inventory analysis. You'll be able to review these recommendations and then prepare purchase orders at the touch of a button. ARBAPRO also does the unexpected - like letting you put seasonal merchandise on sale with just a few keystrokes. The system allows you to add new items to inventory on the fly during receiving or purchasing, and to purchase non-stock items.
Use ARBAPRO's extensive reporting capability to analyze your inventory and make vendor and sales rep contacts more productive - no more guessing which products you need, or when you need them. ARBAPRO provides a clear view of all the pieces of the profit puzzle. You put them together in infinite combinations.

ARBA Retail Systems offers many options which can be added now or in the future, providing you with a scalable solution that will grow with your evolving needs.
- ARBA offers Multi-Store Service Location Management with individual and consolidated reporting from your cross town campuses.
- Optimize throughput at the register, provide employee convenience, and increase sales revenue with payroll deductions with employee badge scanning. File exchange with payroll can be fully automated and tailored to your hospital’s needs. ARBAPRO can import your existing employee files. With each subsequent import, we’ll recognize new or terminated employees, and even identify replacement badge numbers. At the register, you’ll be able to read employee badges of varying types using the supplied magnetic reader or bar code scanner, or, if necessary, other optional badge readers (you can also look up staff manually by name or customer number). The register notifies your cashier if the account has been terminated or is over the credit limit – it’s the shop manager’s choice to override a credit limit. Payroll deductions have simply never been faster or easier.
- Prepare ARBAPRO’s deduction reports for your payroll department quickly and easily. The software can be customized to transfer files electronically to and from your payroll department. Deductions are based on user-definable splits or full deduction amounts. Payments are credited on your payroll posting date. ARBAPRO’s customer categories allow for separation of payroll deductions from department charges, and physician’s office charges.
- No more writing out payroll deduction slips by hand. ARBAPRO does it for you – and generates reports automatically as well as statements for physician and department charges.
- Provide convenience for visitors as well as employees. Credit card and debit card transactions are quick, easy and completely integrated with ARBAPRO’s cash register. Swipe the credit or debit card, or enter numbers manually for phone orders. ARBA Retail Systems uses PCCharge™ by VeriFone as our processing devise for PC based payment processing solutions. PCCharge ™ is a PA-DSS validated solution that features many security safeguards and anti-fraud controls. Through its use, merchants are one step closer to achieving Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance and protecting their business interests.
- Accept Credit Cards or Debit Cards at your ARBAPRO Cash Register. Counter mount swivel stand option available. Save money on your credit card fees!
Training for your new POS system is just as important as the decision you’ve made to install it. Acquiring your new POS system can be a significant undertaking, and will have a major impact on your day-to-day operations. Our trainers know how to make this transition easy. Training provides you with immediate and effective use of the system, saves you time wasted in trial and error learning, and yields a fast return on your investment.
We know that volunteers make your operation unique, frequently requiring special attention and support. In our years of hospital gift shop training, we’ve taught thousands of volunteers how to happily use our registers.
ARBA offers two types of customer support. Both support offerings include any software upgrades and enhancements released during the support period at no additional cost. Extended Hours Software Telephone Support (Sunday thru Saturday) is available for the busy giftshop, while our Business Hours Software Telephone Support (Monday thru Friday) is ideal for the hospital snack bar, coffee bar or juice bar.
