          Scan Data
          Partner

          One of the convenience store owner’s most valuable assets is the data created every time a transaction hits the register. We believe these assets should not be made available to a vendor who doesn’t have your store’s best interest in mind. That’s why Team Modern became a partner of OnPoint to make sure your purchase data is working for you. OnPoint manages tobacco scan purchase data and provides unique center store scan-down promotional opportunities and more currently not available from other data mining services. Check out OnPoint at the link and let us tell you more about this valuable resource for your store.

          Ordering

          Team Modern’s ordering technology provides you with the tools to be accurate and efficient when creating an order for your store. An ordering tablet from Team Modern allows you to search for specific items, review purchase history, and create order templates. Promotional items are highlighted on the screen and it will show you items that have been booked and when they’re going to be shipped to your store. You will also receive a weekly email showing your pre-booked items for promotions you’ve signed up for and items purchased at shows or special events.
