What are POS systems?
A POS system is a terminal that is responsible for making a transaction or billing the end customer. It is usually associated with a cash register, card drawers or barcode readers, but there are a wide variety of systems that can help you with this process which is very common in companies.
In turn, POS is a set of software and hardware that allow you to have greater control of revenue at different points of sale, increase overall business productivity, and reduce billing times for each transaction.
Designed exclusively to maintain a better record of sales and cash flow in the company, cash registers were the first POS to appear and enter retail industries. Over time and developing new technologies, these systems have evolved into electronic point-of-sale solutions beyond simple tracking of their sales.
Given the volume of business, we can deploy everything from basic POS systems with software that collects only sales data to sophisticated software modules that can automate orders, control stock replenishment, and can be combined with marketing campaigns. Something fundamental if you are looking to understand and further study the final behavior of your consumer. In addition to the usual boxes, additional hardware such as card readers or barcode scanners can be added to the company.
Currently, POS systems can operate over a single network of computers that is installed in the enterprise and require an on-premise server, or through cloud systems with an Internet connection. The latter are usually the most frequent in companies, since any user can access them from a simple Tablet, Smart phone, or computer.
POS system utilities
Most POS systems are implemented as points of sale to help the customer make their purchase effectively. The main utilities offered by this type of systems in a company are:
- Utility information: provide detailed information about each of the transactions that are made in the company. They allow you to quantify all sales and generate specific reports regarding revenue and accounting operations.
- Improved mobility: POS systems can place orders anywhere in the world at any time.
- Great user experience: the customer will feel comfortable and secure, thus reducing the usual wait times in a transaction.
- Real-time inventory control: these systems allow you to know the status of your products and the stock of your warehouse. You will avoid having to do a manual count and speed up the process of replenishment and automation of your stock.
- Employee management: can be used as your own tool for tracking employees. Scheduling tasks, analyzing each task, runtimes are just some of the functions that can be measured.
