If you are in retail here are 5 things to consider for your next POS system.
There never seems to be a good time, and certainly this month is not the time. However, if you are experiencing frustration you may not want to wait. Maybe it is finding the right data, or managing inventory, or perhaps it is figuring out commissions. Maybe it is that just about anything you need to do is harder than you think it should be. If this is the case, then you might be thinking “how bad could it be?” Maybe I should replace it right now.
We do recommend you wait. (Just until you can make a plan.)
Still, you have overcome a huge hurdle. Making the decision can be the hardest part.
Here are 5 things to consider as you make that plan to get the most out of your next system. (We suggest that you add to this list and be prepared when you start your search.)
Also, feel free to ask us for advice, we have access to manufacturer information that isn’t readily available on the internet. We can offer you an unbiased opinion and guide you to find the right system, a POS that works for you, your business and your team. Focus on efficiency, effectiveness and reducing expenses – this is at the heart of what we do every single day.
1) Do you need to add inventory management tools?
2) Do you need to import info from your legacy system?
3) Do you want to offer receipts via text or e-mail?
4) Do you want to be able to easily track loyalty and gift cards?
5) Do you need an e-commerce option, whether for items sold or gift cards?
All of these are important critical questions to ask yourself. Of course, some of the mainstays of any quality POS system will include automated Quickbooks and bookkeeping integration, PCI compliance, real time reporting and easy admin tools that allow you to set security level access for each employee using the system. If you want to chat now, give us a ring or plan to schedule to talk in early January.
