With most businesses making the switch from traditional POS systems to EPOS systems, here’s a few reasons why Electronic POS is the future:
Security. EPOS systems are run through secure servers and the programmes can be web based that means that data can be backed up and recovered should the worst happen and you are subject to a cyber attack.
Hardware. With most EPOS systems you can run the software from any provider on most devices (dependant upon compatibility). Unlike old POS systems that could only be run on the device that was sold to the business, flexible EPOS can be run on tills and mobile devices, such as tablets.
Integration. With an connected electronic system you can directly integrate your accounts software into your point of sale. That means stock item prices can be updated from the back office and pushed out live to all tills in seconds. Plus with a direct accounts integration you can get accurate and informed reports.
Stock. Managing stock in traditional systems had to be done manually, meaning stock takes could become laborious and time consuming. With a connected EPOS system you can manage stock levels through barcoding. This saves time and increases accuracy so you don’t over order and you can monitor stock levels across your business.
Payment. With the way money is handled constantly changing an electronic point of sale allows you to transact in whichever way the customer desires, be it cash, credit card or contactless. Traditional POS systems had no integration into card terminals, leaving them as a cash only business.
Reporting. With a connected, electronic system you can report on everything in your business. From store transactions and operator performance to best sellers and success of promotions. Reporting and dashboards have never been easier to access, allowing your management team to make quicker decisions.
Online. If your business is diversifying to online sales through an ecommerce site or Amazon or eBay, with an EPOS system you can connect your sale info and stock to ensure your data is up to date.
Support. When purchasing an EPOS system, the provider will usually offer set up and ongoing support to assist your team in their every day use of the system. As there are more integrations and connections with a newer EPOS system, providers will offer increased support. This can even include supporting technical integrations and helping with everyday admin troubles.
