In Store POS
There are needs and then there are desires. Your business may desire an iPad per on-shift staff member, but it definitely needs a POS system to be able to make the money to pay your employees.
What Is In Store POS?
In Store POS means a point of sales (POS) for your physical in-store location. There are website point of sales which is referred to as e-commerce. A POS is, in essence, a glorified cash register. That glorification, however, is warranted as a POS system will be far more tidy, easier to use and train on, and gives 100% accuracy. System breakage resulting in downtime is also far less likely with a POS opposed to an old-school cash register.
What Are Its Benefits?
Your business will be able to run far smoother in terms of tracking products, giving accurate reports on sales, as well, closing at the end of the night will take less time too.
What Is The Nit And Grit Of It If You Don’t Have It?
You can function without a POS machine and use an old-school cash register, but this is what economists like to call ‘opportunity cost’. The opportunity cost of not having a POS is that you will be spending more on training hours for staff members on using an old-school cash register, any costs associated with fixing your old cash register, the missed transactions when one of your cash registers is not working therefore increasing line size (and increasing customers’ frustration levels), and your own personal headache from it all.
