HARTFORD, CT (September 28, 2021) – The shooting sports industry leader in FFL technology, payments and compliance services, Orchid LLC is pleased to announce a partnership with the National Association of Sporting Goods Wholesalers (NASGW) to provide Orchid POS™ data in support of NASGW SCOPE™, a data sharing program for the shooting sports industry. Orchid clients will contribute non-confidential sales data to provide the firearms industry with a better understanding of product performance and sales trends.
“The evolution of the firearms industry demands a data-driven supply chain,” said Jon Rydberg, Orchid CEO. “Such data has been a well-publicized focus of NASGW SCOPE™ and we are pleased to support their initiative. The development of Orchid POS™ and this partnership underscores our commitment to drive integrated solutions specific to the firearms industry for everyone from manufacturer to consumer.”
To commemorate the partnership, Orchid POS™ and Orchid eBound™ will be free for one year to the first 30 retail FFLs who sign up prior to the NASGW Expo, to be held Oct. 27-29. Gun stores beyond the first 30 who sign up before the NASGW Expo will receive three (3) months of Orchid POS™ and Orchid eBound™ at no cost. Implementation dates will be scheduled on a first come, first serve basis over the next six months.
Designed for individual, multi-store and mobile firearm retailers, Orchid POS™ combines the functionality of an integrated point of sale system, electronic bound book, and firearms-friendly merchant processor in one comprehensive, user-friendly platform. Key features include native Orchid eBound™ and Orchid Pay™ integrations, inventory management, gunsmithing, membership billing, sales reporting, CRM email marketing, and optional Orchid eCommerce™ and AmmoReady upgrades for a custom webstore, live distributor feeds and drop shipping. In addition, Orchid eBound™ is backed by attorneys at FFL Law for maximum security and ATF compliance.
