A lot of business people are still in the practice of using traditional methods to manage their businesses, and track sales. Most times, this is never easy, especially for those who manage multiple stores or makes tons of sales daily.
This challenge is what Taja is addressing. The platform is a tablet based retail Point-Of-Sale system that allow retailers monitor their business using a smartphone.
Launched in June 2014 by Adedoyin Olabode, Tajá helps Nigerian businesses overcome the challenges of manual product updates and monitoring of inventory. Through a smooth cloud-based retail platform that runs on tablets, the platform makes it easier for businesses to track inventory and handle sales.
According to the founder, “60% of people own multiple stores, they have families to manage, and many times the employees are not capable of managing it. The owners are also not able to monitor staff members and what’s going on in all the stores at the same time. With Taja device, owners sees their shop from cloud.”
How it works? Users download the app on a tablet, upload their inventory file and start selling. Taja charges US$50 per month per outlet, and targets businesses ranging from small retailers to larger companies with multiple outlets.
The platform works on any Android mobile device or Android PC, and business data is sent to the cloud to ensure easy monitoring for users. It also works offline, enabling users to use it even without an internet connection.
What’s more interesting about Taja? Users with more than one device can work still work perfectly when one device is unavailable, as Taja keeps your data synchronised across multiple devices.
If you run a retail business, and struggling with managing inventories, you should give Taja a try.
