Frequently asked questions
What is a POS system?
POS stands for Point of Sale and at a very basic level means the area where a customer completes a transaction.
POS software can be thought of like a digital cash register, allowing business owners to process sales and take payments. POS software also typically includes other functionality related to running a store including inventory management, stock control, customer loyalty programs, reporting and employee management.
What industries use POS software?
POS software is used by any businesses where customers purchase products or services and the business takes payments. Common industries that use point of sale software include:
Retail POS software
The retail industry is one of clearest examples of point of sale in action. Retailers love point of sale because it helps them manage customers, inventory and reporting with the ability to add customised promotions. Typical retail businesses that use POS include:
- Clothes & shoes
- Entertainment, books, electronics
- Pet supplies
- Home goods,
- Alcohol & bottle shops
Hospitality POS software
The hospitality industry used POS software to manage orders, split payments and target those customers for rewards eg: coffee shop loyalty cards. Typical hospitality businesses that use POS include:
- Coffee shops
Services POS software
This sector references any service that you receive rather than a good. Similar to retail these industries use point of sale to take payments, manage their database and offer targeted promotions. Typical service businesses that use POS include:
- Nail salons
- Sporting clubs
- Car wash
- Wedding services
What is cloud-based POS software?
Traditional desktop point of sale software is downloaded onto one computer and physically connected to a cash register.
Cloud-based point of sale software can be directly accessed from the web and offers a streamlined system that works on most devices and gives users the ability to manage their POS anywhere there’s a wifi connection.
Why use POS software?
Any physical business that takes payments can benefit from POS software. Here’s why:
Prevent human error
Manually adding up transactions leaves your business open to human error. These errors may be small but they add up over time and your business could be losing out on potential income. A POS system might cost you a little more each month but will help ensure your figures are accurate which is important for tax, compliance and growing your business.
Unfortunately some business losses are due to theft from their own employees. A POS system can add a layer of accountability to track and evaluate transactions. The ability to assign employee codes and permissions can restrict access to certain areas of your backend and ensure sales, discounts and refunds can be tracked to a specific employee.
POS software can significantly speed up your checkout process with scan, tap or search features and you have product and customer data at your fingertips. You’ll be able to serve more people in a day and your customers will be much more likely to come back if they don’t have to wait in line to make a purchase.
Grow your business
Do you know what your best-selling product is? What time of day is best for sales? Who your best sales person is? The reporting and analysis that comes built in with POS software is such a valuable tool in identifying what is and isn’t working for your store. Allowing you to use your own store data to optimise sales processes, ordering, promotions and rostering and improve your profit margins.
Can I run POS software on any device?
What are the benefits of a cloud POS system?
Using a cloud based POS system gives you the flexibility and mobility to take payments on the go e.g. at your customers table, or at a market stall.
Access your POS software anywhere, anytime even when you aren’t physically in store. Simply log in to your account and you can see real-time sales figures and run reports or add new products or customers.
Beautiful, and intuitive
Cloud based POS software is still relatively new on the market so you get all the benefits of software that has been built with the latest design and user experience principles in mind.
