Save Energy and Money!

If you’re still using a traditional cash register and EFTPOS pin pad terminal, it’s kind of forgivable. Not long ago, there weren’t alternatives, and it is always easiest to just stick with the way things were.

Things have changed. Now there are lots and lots of options to replace your current cash register system. One of those other options out there might be the perfect fit for your business. It is probably cheaper, too.

You owe it to yourself to at least take a look at and read this information provided to you; – if you don’t, you might be leaving money (and efficiency) on the table!

For those of you new to the world of Point of Sale (POS), it is Point of Sale Software that offers retail automation replacing the traditional cash register.

Depending on which POS System you choose it can also solve issues that arise when sales and inventory numbers don’t match up. You can automate credits and discounts, and track them accurately, eliminating the register receipts headache at the end of the day.

If you run a promotion, your Point of Sale System can quickly and easily let you know how successful it was. If you have more than one location, the system ensures your prices and offers are consistent. Many POS Systems also feature add-on modules such as time and attendance and customer preferences with loyalty and membership databases.

And on that note, the POS System’s automation gives you the freedom to walk out the door without worrying that your employees will be bogged down with inventory and register reconciliation. That leaves more time for them to devote to customer service, and less time to clock for closing up shop.
