Business owners are always looking for an edge to attract more customers and retain their current customers. This includes providing excellent customer service providing an easy-to-use and efficient form of checkout. A key part of the checkout process is a straightforward POS system or Point of Sale.

POS Systems Provide a Variety of Capabilities

POS systems offer a variety of features to meet the needs of any business size. Depending on the needs of the business, a POS system can help manage inventory, accept mobile wallet payments, and search transaction histories; all while still providing a reliable and secure checkout process for customers. Normally business functions such as inventory management, CRM, and managing financial information would all require separate systems with repeated data entry. By using a state of the art POS system, business information is all centrally located and only needs to be entered once, saving time and reducing the chance of errors.

Customer-Friendly POS

POS systems help provide a user-friendly and secure way for customers to pay for their purchases. More and more of those customers are choosing to pay with debit and credit cards. From 2009 to 2012, card payments increased by $17.8 billion, while non-card payments decreased by $3.1 billion, leading to a net increase in noncash payments of $14.7 billion.1 By having a POS system in place, you are ensuring that your business can offer convenient payment options preferred by your customers. For example, waiters can serve tables and submit orders to restaurant cooks and the bar so your staff can immediately begin preparing the order quickly. At the end of the meal, the server can use an android POS to swipe the customer's credit card and have the bill signed for – all in front of the customer, reducing concerns of stealing credit card numbers while the card is out of view. What might be the best part is since most people use these devices in their personal lives, switching to a mobile POS system, such as an iPhone POS, will have a very small learning curve.
