Retail POS Software Point of Sale Software
Introduction Each system offers a unique set of seemingly useful features and more often than not, serves a specific vertical(s). Before diving into those, you’ll want to understand the big picture: how it works, how easy it is to implement, what it provides, and if it comes with good support. Below you’ll find a high-level approach to understanding what makes each retail POS system a good or bad choice for your business.
Features of POS Software As you search, these are the overarching points that you’ll to want to pay attention to: • Transaction Time • User-Friendly Interface • Timely and Accurate Data • Security • Support
Transaction Time One thing that people surely don’t have much patience for at a small business is long lines. As a shopper, you come to expect it at large retailers but not at your local neighborhood shop. A fast and reliable POS system will help you fly through your busy periods throughout the day. Even a tiny stall in each transaction will add up and cost you money in the long run.
User Friendly If your POS software isn’t simple and user-friendly, you will lose money by spending copious amounts of time training your staff and accounting for their mistakes along the way. A user-friendly system will drastically increase the transaction speed and save you money, and create a better experience for your customers.
Security Many POS companies are now developing better hardware and software features to address these concerns. You don’t have to be a security expert to choose a relatively secure POS solution if you just look for some key things. For starters, you should make sure that your system is PCI compliant, and that the card reader or terminal encrypts the data at the point of swipe
Data Accuracy We’ve previously outlined the ways that you can use your POS software to better control your inventory, but if your reports don’t reflect the correct information or your system doesn’t provide the data in real-time, then it’s not very useful. Not to mention, with the advent of cloud technology now available to small businesses at affordable prices, if you can’t access your data where and when you want it, then it’s really not very beneficial.
