Department Segmentation

You are here:

Need help in deciding how to segment your store’s departments?  Why reinvent the wheel?  The CoPOS Department Segmentation Examples spreadsheet shows examples of how some of our customers have divided up their departments.  The Yes/No valued columns are Department guidelines.  Any Item can have any one of its attributes different from the Department Guidelines.  For example, it’s perfectly possible to have Taxable Items in a Department that is designated as Non-Taxable.

Column F, the Taxable status has three other possibilities:

  • Yes/Low Taxable at the Sales Tax Low Rate
  • Yes/High Taxable at the Sales Tax High Rate
  • Yes/Highest Taxable at the Sales Tax Highest Rate
