POS Solution

If you are looking for a new point of sale solution, you either are just starting out, have one that is not satisfying your needs or you are ready to upgrade to a more advanced or modern system. If you are just starting out, you have the advantage of not having to worry about migrating inventory data to a new system, and you have the full world of payment processors at your feet, pleading with you to sign up with them. If you are already in business and are looking to change to a new POS system, you will want to find one that satisfies your needs and is relatively simple to migrate your data to.

All-in-one POS systems are certainly appealing. They include all the basic hardware with the software preinstalled. They are a plug-and-play solution. Basic POS packages are commonly offered in retail or restaurant packages. The retail packages usually include a terminal, monitor, barcode scanner, cash drawer, card reader, keyboard, mouse, receipt printer and retail software. The restaurant packages usually include a touchscreen monitor, terminal, receipt printer, cash drawer, card reader and restaurant software.

With a POS system:
  • You can analyze sales data, figure out how well all the items on your shelves sell, and adjust purchasing levels accordingly.
  • You can maintain a sales history to help adjust your buying decisions for seasonal purchasing trends.
  • You can improve pricing accuracy by integrating bar-code scanners and credit card authorization ability with the POS system.
