Point of Sale Equipment, also known as POS, is a computerized system, more complex than basic cash registers, that has the ability to process credit and debit card payments, track customer orders and manage inventories. It is mostly used in the retail industry, in the hospitality and entertainment sectors and in any other type of sector that sells different services.
The latest technologies in POS terminals allow them to connect to the internet, so that inventories can be easily tracked across geographically dispersed locations.
Using a POS terminal is beneficial for any type of business, of any size. It not only tells you how much has been sold and the amount of money, but also how many products of a specific kind were sold in a day and how many are left in stock, so you know exactly when the stocks are getting low and what products see an increased sale and need to be ordered.
Also, it provides a more accurate inventory, compared to shelf inventory done by employees, and also saves a lot of time and saves your business a lot of money.
In the retail industry, computerized POS systems that have a barcode scanner provide a faster, smoother and more accurate check out, that is easier for the employees and preferable for the customers.
Apart from these, this type of equipment is able to perform various other functions, such as creating hourly and daily sales reports, calculating labor and payroll data, allowing hourly employees to sign in and out, recording daily check averages for each employee and recording information on customers that come back.
