POS Systems - What Do I need for My Store?

Owning a cash register or POS system is absolutely essential, when it comes to operating a store. You obviously need a location where your staff completes all the transactions. The question here is what you want to do with it. If you just want to cover the fundamentals of customer processing, then a low cost cash register solution is the way to go. Conversely, if you are looking to utilize advanced management and data analysis functions, then a computerized POS system is your best choice.

In addition, if you are a small business owner with only one check-out point, then scalability is not an issue for you. However, as your business expands you will need the capability to track sales and inventory developments to gain a competitive edge. Find out more about the benefits of both options.

Key Issues to Consider during POS Evaluation

Naturally, your type of business should influence your decision and you must consider the following issues:

  • Size and complexity of store and products sold
  • Are there any servers or Back Office products involved?
  • Connectivity (Networking, peripheral devices, etc)
  • Short Vs long term perspectives
  • Level of customer interaction
  • Number of visitors
  • Usability (Is the equipment easy to use and intuitive?)
  • Customer service
  • Tendering (how goods are paid for)
  • Sales data analysis

So What Is Best for My Business?

If you are just getting starting with your store operations, your budget should be your primary driver behind your choice. Yet, with all the hardware options available today, you should begin your selection based on what your business needs and spend accordingly. To illustrate, why invest in a POS solution with Back Office software, when all you have is one check-out point?

Take a while to research all the features and weigh them against how they best help your business. This investment will have a direct impact on your bottom line, and you therefore must cover all your bases. Remember, you are buying a complete system and not just hardware. Your cash register’s or POS system’s intelligence comes from the software inside it.
