BENEFITS

WHY POINT OF SALE SYSTEM

GREATER EFFECIENCY

Traditional method relies on the personnel’s ability to remember the price and details product in the store. In the meantime, as your store grows or hire new employee, the efficiency of transaction is vastly reduced.

With POS software, all details of a product are already available to the personnel. In short, they need to scan the product’s barcode and every detail is displayed to them. Thus, this will make the checkout process faster and the queues shorter.

INVENTORY MANAGEMENT

Retailers find that moving to a POS software greatly improves their efficiency in inventory management. For instance, input your existing stock levels for each product when you set up your POS for the first time. Therefore, for every order processed the software adjusts inventory levels by itself.

Besides, you can even process returns and replacements with ease. Moreover, POS system adjust inventory levels according to the returned products.

SALES REPORTS

Most POS software applications today offer sales reports and trend analysis. Generally, both of these help you determine how your business is faring. So, you can also use these reports to forecast demand for the future. In addition, it also keep track of your sales during different time periods.

EMPLOYEE IDENTIFICATIONS

Using POS software, you can track employees and their checkout speeds by using the code assigned to them. For instance, before an employee can process an order, they need to enter their employee code. So, not just their speed, you can also review feedback from customers. Besides, can identify which employees are performing well and which ones need more training. Thus this helps you improve your in-store experience.

CONSISTENCY OF THE CATALOG

For retailers selling across multiple locations, maintaining consistency of their product catalog can be a challenge. However, POS software maintains a digital catalog of data that is accessible across locations. In other words, you don’t have to worry about setting the same product prices across stores, even during sale periods. Instead, the POS will do it for you.
