ACE Joins TAKU

ACE Joins TAKU

We can finally share the big news with everyone. We are pleased to officially announce that our sister company ACE POS Solutions Ltd. is now part of TAKU Canada Ltd.

In these inflationary times, this will help us with our ongoing efforts to keep admin costs down and to improve our service to you.

So what does this mean for you? There are four things of note:

  1. We have combined forces to provide you with better support. The leaders will continue to operate and manage TAKU Canada Ltd. with a team that is 100% based in Canada.
  2. We are not merging our two software platforms, TAKU and ACE. Each product line will focus on the continued development of its core products, and our customers will have a choice of solutions based on business fit.
  3. By merging our teams together, we can offer better migration assistance between platforms.
  4. Your billing from us stays the same, but the email on the invoices will change to billing@takulabs.io, and we will be offering more self-service options to make it more convenient for you.

We will be improving our websites along with revamped social media. Stay tuned for more freebies and special offers!

Products with Variants: New TAKU Feature

Products with Variants: New TAKU Feature

If you carry a lot of similar products with different options, inventory can be hard to manage. We’re excited to announce that TAKU now has the ability for you to create products with variants to group similar goods that are sold with different options such as color or size.

TAKU product variations

Product with variants, sometimes known as matrix products, allow retail stores to manage every unique combination of options as its own “variant product.”

Variants vs options on TAKU Retail

Every variant product has its own “child SKU,” with its own inventory and price, while sharing attributes with an associated “parent SKU.” Variant products help stores track inventory more accurately. But they are most important for e-commerce or self-check kiosks as they allow shoppers to select different options from the same product page.

While it’s common for cloud-based retail systems to have many limitations on how product variants can be created, we’ve built TAKU to be super flexible and easy to use. Compared to other platforms, TAKU lets you:

  • Create new matrix products with up to 4 options (e.g. size, color, etc.) with unlimited unique “variants” or combinations
  • Add or combine existing single products into new parent SKUs while keeping past sales history
  • Unlink “child” products from an existing “parent” SKU and continue to sell them as single products, again while keeping past sales history
  • Easily make “parent” or “child” products inactive when options are discontinued
Unlinking child products from parent products in TAKU

What makes it even easier? While product details of parent SKUs are automatically applied to child products when adding new options. Certain details, such as stock quantities, price and images of child products, can be adjusted for each SKU as well.
